Don’t waste your money on a Woodstock Suite. The view of Gaslamp was the top of another building’s A/C units. I called to inquire once we checked in and was told all that is guaranteed is a private balcony. The word private should not be included as the room faces a whole wall of windows of other rooms.

Don’t waste your money on a Woodstock Suite. The view of Gaslamp was the top of another building’s A/C units. I called to inquire once we checked in and was told all that is guaranteed is a private balcony. The word private should not be included as the room faces a whole wall of windows of other rooms. The room was not spectacular other than some extra space. There was not much upkeep with rust and wear in the shower tiles and fraying carpet. It was disappointing to pay so much for what was advertised as a luxury suite for our anniversary only to be in a subpar room. Read less

What an amazing experience at a business conference. Hospitality was impeccable. Rooms are awesome and the vibe is, too! Great meetings team and the food was AMAZING! Highly recommend, didn’t have a single bad experience, nothing to complain about at all!

The room was awesome, loved the restaurants, pool and memorabilia. Did get to hit up the pool and jacuzzi before the 21+ pool party started and we had to go with our baby. We signed up for VIP which wasn’t worth it, two ‘free’ drinks for $50 More dollars, eh nothing else…? Thought it’d make valet free or something so we felt more convenience.… Read more

Travelling in Covidtimes presents challenges and I am sure that operating a hotel in these times is difficult too. The strain is certainly showing at the San Diego HardRock. The help was scarce, our room was not well cleaned and there was no bar service or drinks after 3 pm. No pool bar. No snacks by the pool. No room service. Nada. … Read more
Travelling in Covidtimes presents challenges and I am sure that operating a hotel in these times is difficult too. The strain is certainly showing at the San Diego HardRock. The help was scarce, our room was not well cleaned and there was no bar service or drinks after 3 pm. No pool bar. No snacks by the pool. No room service. Nada. It was as if a staff of three were running the whole operation and that staff was stoned to be able to make it through the day. I suppose I should be commending them for staying open at all. They sure don't have the conventions they are used to. But they might do a better job of cleaning rooms. Once should never check-in and find poop stains on your toilet and a broken towel bar in the batrhoom. Read less
