Went to San Diego for our annual conference but brought along my boyfriend. We both had a great experience at this hotel. Perfectly located near the historic district. Staff was always pleasant and helpful. Fun place to stay.

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel in late October as it was close to the Convention Center and I had stayed there previously. I've also stayed at other Hard Rock Hotels. NOT AGAIN!

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel in late October as it was close to the Convention Center and I had stayed there previously. I've also stayed at other Hard Rock Hotels. NOT AGAIN! My review this time goes to my disgust with a mini-bar charge during this visit. After I returned home, I had a $7.76 mini-bar charge on my final bill. $6 for a can of Red Bull; $1.20 mini-bar service fee + $0.56 local sales fee. I protested this charge. Last night I received this email from the hotel's Guest Services Supervisor: "I hope this message finds you well and enjoying your week. I'm reaching out this evening to follow up in regards to the mini bar charges that were registered to your room from your stay with us at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. After careful investigation, our Mini Bar staff determined that the inventory taken from your room upon your departure was accurate for your stay, as the mini bar was inventoried prior to your arrival. Due to the investigation results, we will be unable to refund the mini bar charge from your reservation at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while our team reviewed your claim. If there is anything additional that I can assist with, please don't hesitate to reach out." I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT take a can of Red Bull from their mini-bar...didn't even touch the mini-bar much less take anything from the mini-bar. I am 67 years old and have NEVER had a Red Bull nor would I even consider having a Red Bull - ever. No one else had access to my room for those days so one can only conclude that the individual that took the can of Red Bull was an employee of the hotel as I DID NOT!! I repeat I DID NOT! The hotel has chosen to stick me with the bill. The principle of my protest is that I did NOT remove this liquor from the mini-bar during any point in my stay. Someone other than me took this can of Red Bull - that's a fact. I will NOT stay at this or any other Hard Rock Hotel while I am traveling! I will also NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. Read less

I have an enjoyable stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. It is conveniently located literally across the street from the convention center. It is at the entrance of the beautiful GasLamp District where there are lots of restaurants in walking distance. The hotel itself is beautiful. Clean and modern decorated rooms with all the conveniences.
