Would definitely stay here again when we visit and hard to find any real faults with the hotel unless I was really trying to be nit-picky! Read less

Didn't have time to use the pool but it looked like a really nice area to relax. We stayed at the weekend, and given the location there was a lot of noise going on outside which meant we didn't sleep very well (with windows shut) so we probably wouldn't stay at the weekend again, but certainly during the week.

I came for a short visit to enjoy the hotel and surrounding neighborhood. Pros: Nice exterior of an historic building. Cool, modern decor on the interior. All the staff from the valet to the front desk to the maids were very friendly and accommodating. Complimentary wine at check-in and in- room soda, water, juice with a few snacks was a nice touch and appreciated. Check in is at 3:00. The room was clean with comfortable beds. The furniture and fixtures had some scratches/wear for a place just renovated in 2017. My interior (of the building) room lacked a view, but from what I read, that is the price to pay in order to ensure a quiet room here away from the street. It was quiet until I heard doors slamming in the morning. The rooftop lounge and bar area had a nice atmosphere with a city view which I enjoyed. Cons: No onsite parking, valet only, so pull your car up to the front ( I drove around the hotel a few times looking for their parking). Be aware of the one way streets. Okay, fine. I understand the high cost of downtown parking($35), but if you need "in and out" privileges , it's $49/day! This was not spelled out when making a reservation. Don't forget anything in your car, you won't have access to it. The place is compact with only a small lobby and the rooftop area to hang out in. The lower level had some conference going on. I had dinner at the rooftop bar and the food was not good (watery mashed potatoes that tasted like instant potatoes and poorly prepared broccoli and asparagus. The fish was just okay.) This Gaslamp District neighborhood was not comfortable or inviting to me. During a stroll I did enjoy seeing some restored turn of the century buildings, but that was it. There is no shopping. I was not charmed into entering most of the places I passed. There were homeless people on every street I walked. Some were walking around and a few were sleeping in doorways with their trash left behind. I recently visited NYC, Paris, Rome and I did not experience anything quite like this when sightseeing. Sketchy neighborhoods are places I avoid when on vacation. Because of this atmosphere I won't be returning to the Andaz San Diego. Frankly, it may have turned me off to visiting San Diego in general.

Great hotel. Lots of perks. Staff was so friendly and welcoming. Room was big. Bed was very comfortable. I was there for a business meeting. The food served was great. Close to 5th avenue and lots of great restaurants. Would definitely stay again.
