Awesome stay here in the Gaslamp! Valet parking with in/out privileges. A nice 10 minute walk to the entrance of the convention center. I only wished this location had a pool. Having a kitchen is a super plus!There is only one 1 bedroom in the building...so book in advance if you need a bigger space. The studio units are spacious...

I’m so happy to hear that you had an awesome stay! San Diego’s Gaslamp district offers plenty of activity. It’s also nice that the convention center is in such close proximity to Harbour Lights. I glad that you mentioned our valet service. We charge $32.00 a day which is one of the lowest in the downtown area. Our kitchens are...

Enjoyed this hotel, the kitchenette is a nice addition and the room is clean and modern. Valet service is 32 and a bit on the slow side but not a deal breaker. Staff was friendly and the hotel is well kept and has a very solid location to walk to anything in the gaslamp area or over to petco park....

Thank you for staying with us and for the wonderful comments about the room and the benefits of the kitchenette. We have seen an increase in valet usage this summer and are actively making improvements to ensure it is a great experience. We look forward to you staying with us again in the future. Thanks, Raymond

While this hotel is located in the trendy Gaslamp District it is only a few blocks from San Dtego's beautiful harbor. Lots of restraunts and nightlife abound in the Gaslamp. If you like a varity in your palet you will not be disappointed. Also, many have outside dining.

Nice enough room, given that there is a small kitchenette. Big windows with a view. Having said that, it was a very poor view: directly across the street are two tattoo parlors and a ghetto dollar store. We were woken at night by the sound of homeless people duking it out. This hotel is on the very edge of the...

We drove in from Phoenix to beat the heat. Valet'ed the car and didn't take it back out until we drove home. Everything we wanted to go to -- restaurants, Balboa Park, USS Midway, Seaport -- was either walking distance or a few trolley/bus stops away. We had the studio which was bigger than we expected. Appreciated the extra room....

I’m so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Downtown San Diego. You are right we are in the heart of the Gaslamp with so much to see and do without having to use your car. Many guests don’t drive or rent a car since the public transportation is easily accessible. If you do use our valet services, the cost...

The property appears to be a time-share conversion from a former hotel. Upon check-in, you are asked to visit a desk for free discount coupons. The person there asked if we were busy the next morning to hear a 90 minute presentation and receive a gift. It was my birthday weekend so I didn't commit. The property has gone Green,...

We certainly wanted to Party in The Gaslamp, but wanted the assurance of a good nights sleep when that time of night came around. The Wyndham Harbour Lights was perfect for that and much more. At 5th & Broadway, it is just far enough down the street from all the fun and noise, yet close enough that you can be...

We stayed at Harbour Lights on our recent cross-country trip in June 2015.

In the midst of the Gaslamp District, you have access to every kind of restaurant, nightlife, and entertainment possible.
