You'll go potty with delight if you like your exposed glass encased toilet and shower in the middle of your suite so that you can share the pleasures of every bodily function, sound and smell with your partner and anyone else who is visiting your suite for a glass of champagne. The end corners of the beds have been padded to stop you drawing blood from your shins as you inadvertently trip over the sharp end, cleverly camouflaged as part of the carpet. Some of the padding is getting a little worn from use. Perhaps it's a good idea that the pads are brown. It conceals the blod stains?o It might be a little crass to call the hotel the Hard Knock Hotel but the interior designer has certainly left plenty of hard edges and sharp corners built into the design of the rooms.
The lifts to the resident floors are operated by room key card but are situated some way from the reception area. From experience there it would seem as though lack of security or obvious monitoring could pose a danger to hotel guests from rowdy non resident elements entering the lifts and wanting to get off 'at the same floor ' .
The concepts involved in this hotel might be clever but the reality succeeds only in rivalling an airport hotel. Pictures of pop stars on the walls should not delude the occasionally present receptionist to act as a prima donna. Trays of Kit Kat, Altoids and M&Ms in the room only serve to remind one that there is probably a motel chain near the convention centre where one can find the same snack in a equivalent surrounding and probably with cheaper Wi Fi as well.

If you are seeking a stylish hotel in downtown San Diego for business or pleasure I highly recommend the Hard Rock Hotel. This service oriented property goes the extra mile for its guests. Each time I stay I am pleasantly surprised at how well I am treated by the Hard Rock staff, and I appreciate the creative touches like personalized music in the rooms. The hotel has a fun, upbeat vibe which puts you in a great mood. This property has outstanding amenities, a roof top pool & jacuzzi, well equipt gym, cocktail lounges, 2 terrific restaurants including Nobu Sushi which is so delicious and fun, why go anywhere else?! I have found my experience at this property to be one of the best yet to enjoy for personal or business.

Held a conference for 150+ clients and couldn't have picked a better hotel! Location and service are the two big factors when choosing a conference hotel. Both are excellent here! Right in th heart of the Gaslamp district, so plenty of restaurants, bars and shops for clients to use in their free time. Meeting space was spacious, clean, sleek and modern. None of the old stained chairs and draped tablecloths I've come across in some other big name hotel chains. FLOAT - the rooftop lounge was excellent for our cocktail party...the view, the firepits, the staff -- all top notch! The hotel staff took care of all of our needs, sometimes before we even new what those needs were!
