    Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
    San Diego, CA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Marina District, San Diego
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4425 reviewsTripAdvisor (4425)

    Situated between the convention center and the marina, the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is an ideal base camp for both business travelers and families. The surrounding Gaslamp Quarter hosts a plethora of dining, shopping and nightlife options to keep hotel guests busy (which is nice because recent visitors say that dining at Marina Kitchen Restaurant & Bar can get expensive). Visitors praise the fitness center and two pools, and most guests were pleased with the accommodations, despite the room rates being a little steep. All rooms and suites come dressed in a neutral color palette, custom bedding and flat-screen TVs. If possible, reserve a room facing the pool and harbor for better views and to avoid the ringing bells of passing trams. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego
    San Diego, CA
    #2 in Best Hotels in Marina District, San Diego
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 8924 reviewsTripAdvisor (8924)
    Free WiFi

    This Hyatt property, located on the San Diego Bay, sits within walking distance of the Gaslamp Quarter and gets kudos from guests for its two rooftop pools and picturesque views. Each one of the Manchester Grand Hyatt's 1,628 guest rooms boasts large windows that open to let in the sea breeze, as well as high-speed internet access, an iHome alarm clock and a flat-screen TV. Recent guests loved the spacious digs and praised the spectacular views, although some mentioned a few customer service snafus. The Manchester Grand Hyatt also encourages visitors to take advantage of the 24-hour fitness center and the in-house Marilyn Monroe Spa. And when dinnertime rolls around, the hotel houses several restaurants and lounges to choose from, including a top-floor bar that serves up cocktails and superb views of Coronado Island. And because of its brand ties, this hotel participates in the World of Hyatt loyalty program.

    Hard Rock Hotel San Diego
    San Diego, CA
    #3 in Best Hotels in Marina District, San Diego
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6246 reviewsTripAdvisor (6246)
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking the glittering San Diego Bay and rising high above the Gaslamp Quarter, the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego is all about being cool. From its trendy food options (Sunday brunch at Maryjane's and fresh sushi at Nobu) and its swanky decor, to its rooftop pool and entertainment lineup, the Hard Rock will definitely keep you occupied on a rainy day (though there aren't many in San Diego). Guests rave about the hotel's stylish guest rooms, which feature halo-illuminated beds, flat-screen TVs and ceiling-mounted Hansgrohe rain showers. Despite the deluxe digs, this hotel is not really geared towards families and relaxation (no on-site spa). But if you're one to embrace the music, take advantage of the Sound of Your Stay program, which offers free downloads, Fender guitar rentals and a chance to try your hand at being a DJ.

    Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego Bay Downtown
    San Diego, CA
    #6 in Best Hotels in Marina District, San Diego
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2044 reviewsTripAdvisor (2044)

    Accommodations at the all-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego Bay Downtown feature two-room layouts with wooden furnishings, marble bathroom vanities, flat-screen TVs and desks with ergonomic chairs. Fees for in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking apply, but all room rates include the brand's complimentary evening receptions and breakfasts. Prior guests enjoyed both of the hotel's free services but suggested arriving early for weekend breakfasts to avoid waiting in long lines. Many also cited the friendly and speedy reception staff as a plus, though some felt the lobby was a bit cold and could benefit from more comfortable seating. Beyond the lobby, travelers have access to an array of business and leisure amenities, including a business center, multiple meeting rooms, a fitness center and an indoor pool. For all-day dining, there's NY West, where grilled dishes are served alongside wines, spirits and a selection of local brews. A Dunkin' Donuts is available on-site as well. This Hilton-affiliated property – which participates in the Hilton Honors loyalty program – is located in downtown San Diego within walking distance of the Gaslamp Quarter, the San Diego Convention Center and the USS Midway Museum.
