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.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


The hotel acts as a living music museum, displaying cool pieces of classic-rock memorabilia, including Pete Townsend's guitar and Madonna's Virgin Tour bustier.



The 420-room Hard Rock, located in the hip Gaslamp Quarter, hosts wild parties on weekends at its popular rooftop pool and bar. It's a haven for twenty- and thirty-somethings (including celebrities), and trendy rooms have big flat-screen TVs and high-thread-count sheets.



At 11-stories tall, the Hard Rock is technically one-floor shy of being a high-rise, but the rooftop still offers excellent sky-high views of the harbor, Petco Park, the Coronado Bridge, and the historic Gaslamp sign.



The best amenity for a wanna-be rocker? Guests have their choice of Fender electric guitars — Stratocaster, Telecaster and more — that can be sent up for an in-room jam session (with an amp and headphones, of course).
