Right in the gaslamp Quarter great place to spend the night. So close to the nightlife can't beat it. Get fish tacos close by at the Tin Roof.

What a beautiful hotel and bar! This place is great for a weekend in San Diego or even for just a night out at a nice outdoor bar! The hard rock knows how to have a great time!

We attended a party on the fourth floor outdoor Float deck. A great nighttime spot for drinks! It sits in the Gas lamp neighborhood. Worth checking out!

Awesome hotel to stay at. Pretty much right in the epicenter of Downtown nightlife, and walking distance to a lot of bars and clubs. The on site clubs and bars are also awesome, and the 24 hour cafe restaurant is delicious, especially after a long night of partying and dancing.

Beautiful hotel with lots of rock & roll memorabilia! It's very central location is walking distance away from lots of fun things to do in downtown San Diego. Their nightclubs are a lot of fun too!

This is a fun hotel in the heart of the action of the Gaslamp District. There is a Nobu on property, which I love, and they have some pretty fabulous suites if you don't mind spending a few extra dollars.

Good spot for nightlife, the club downstairs or the rooftop for summer parties or the fire pit in the evenings. Nice views of downtown!

Very groovy place to stay. Cannot beat the location in the gaslamp district on 5th street, fronting the convention center. The rooms are modern and slick. The receptionist kindly upgraded me to the rock star suite... Autographs anyone? Oh, and I must say 3 bottles of vodka 2 bottles of wine and a bottle of tequila they kept in my room is just about enough to satisfy a rock star's party lifestyle.....

Fun place to party hard in San Diego. I only wish that the pool was larger and that the DJ booth was visible from the pool. I don't like that they are separate from one another.

If I were to take a tourist and show them the best party in San Diego it would be downtown Hard Rock Intervention Sundays during the summer. Amazing Dj's, swimming on the roof, the cabanas, everything is amazing

Great for young folks who like a naughty feel to the hotel. Love the double headed showers!!

The rooms are nice. I stayed with a friend in a suite for a car event and the rooms are spacious.

* Close to convention center
* Cool upstairs lounge
* Spacious rooms

* Place can get crowded downstairs with the club and everything
* You need a hotel card to get to the elevators. They are REALLY strict.


Hard Rock has an awesome outdoor rooftop bar that no doubt is a riot! I've been there on a few different occasions and its never disappointed.

As a Hard Rock junkie who collects charms from every HRC I visit around the world, I'd rate this in the top five I've been to (so far). Maybe the surrounding area has something to do with it, but I also especially love their bar here. The only thing I usually complain about is the volume of the music - it's one of the loudest I've been to, and every time we go we can barely hear ourselves think. But for a solo diner with a taste for ear-crushing rock, it's perfect.

I’m always a bit wary of anything that deeply identifies with the term “rock star”. Besides the fact that there’s no real rock stars anymore, anyone who wants to be one is generally a tool. That being said, the Hard Rock Hotel is incredibly cool. The rooms are modern and chic, there’s multiple eating options on the property, and when you check in, you can choose a playlist that plays in your room when you arrive there. In fact each different part of the hotel has it’s own playlist that fits the feel of it. The Hard Rock also has a big party scene. At nighttime the 207 Club is packed with people who hope to party with one of the many celebrities who stay here. During the say the scene is up at the rooftop pool, especially on Sundays during the Intervention party. It’s one of San Diego’s hottest pool parties and is absolutely filled with the kinds of tools who desperately want to be thought of as rock stars. If you’re gonna stay at the Hard Rock, leave your kids at home.
