"Great getaway location."
I really enjoyed my stay at the Hard Rock Hotel. It was quiet at night and no disturbances. Also in great location.

It was just okay. This place needs an upgrade to the video system. Small TV in the room and very slow remote device. I wasn't thrilled with the shower arrangement as the water on the rain head was hard to control. Overall this was a rather mediocre hotel for the high price they charged. Oh by the way, they charged me $45.00/day to park my car.

Comfortable and unique room layout with all the perks of the Hard Rock genre. Accommodating, amiable and courteous staff the entire weekend stay. Room service breakfast was delicious. Perfect location. Will stay again if the room rate is right.

Stayed here for a fun night with friends. Queen suite was a decent size, clean and had great views. Spent most of our time in the hotel pool/hot tub which was not overly crowded on a Thursday night compared to my weekend stays here before.

"Loud party house"
Do not stay here if you like to sleep at night. Loud parties most nights. My last night a very loud party went until 5 AM next door. I called security 3 times but it didn't stop. Another morning there was broken glass and confetti in the hall. Beautiful hotel and perfect location, but bad choice for trying to get rest at night.

"Not Customer Friendly"
One of the BIG reasons we chose to stay at Hardrock was their pool/bar facility. In the day of check-in we went to the pool and were denied entry as the facility had been rented out for a PRIVATE PARTY!!! So paying guests at over $200.00 a night don't COUNT. Well, we should COUNT. COUNT me out.

"Not right for you if you plan to sleep"
Fun hotel, great service but if you are a business traveler or anyone in need a good night's sleep, this is not the hotel for you. The hotel did a really poor job in sound proofing, so you hear everything! There is a night club over the pool and downstairs. I would recommend asking for a room on a high floor that doesn't overlook the pool area. The hotel really should have ear plugs in every room and should warn guests if they are going to be having a DJ out at the pool until 2am.

"Didn't Love it"
If you are looking for a party hotel then this is the place for you. The hotel turns into party central over the weekend with a nightclub. The pool is a big party on Sunday. I was there for a conference and would have liked a more relaxing setting. I also didn't like that on Tuesday they allowed someone to rent out the entire pool area and didn't tell hotel guests it would be closed. It was frustrating to leave what I was doing, put on the swimsuit and sunscreen to only find out the pool was closed when I got to it. It would have been easy for the hotel to notify guests of the situation in advance. The room walls are also very thin, so you will hear everything in the hallway. Not a good choice for families or business travelers. Excellent option for those looking to party hard on the weekend.

"It isn't thr HRH Vegas"
The place was ok, but not all that. Denied entrance to the hotel bar (not the club) as a guest, due to a baseball cap, 20 minutes after the game that brought us to the hotel in the first place and the hotel is right at the park...that was weird. And the pool is a postage stamp size with a very odd bar layout. It was ok, but not what we'd hoped for, I know nothing will be as good as a Vegas pool, but we expected more than a puddle.

The bellstaff was very helpful in pointing out their favorite restaurants and providing solid directions. Thanks for a great stay.

"Great Stay and Location"
The hotel was great overall. There were some issues at first with getting there during the time of check-in. The street was blocked where I was to turn into to get to the hotel, and I had to go around a few times just to find the right place to turn since there are so many one way streets and other blocked off areas. Other than that, the staff was excellent and friendly, any time we needed something or had a question they were a phone call away to help us with our needs. The beds were so comfortable it is was so easy to fall asleep. I really like how there's a pool party but there really isn't enough pool or places to lounge when so many people going during those social hours.

"Great for a Bachelotte weekend!"
Everything was great! The only issue we had was at the pool. It's super small & the seating is terrible. My group had been in an "open" seating area for 3 hours when we told to move. The first guy who spoke with us was a jerk but the manager did his job. He was able to find another spot for my group. And our weekend continued without any other interruptions. We all left with great memories!!

"Ooooh, That Smell"
Stayed here four nights to attend a convention at the convention center nearby. The location is pretty good for this purpose, except you have to cross railroad/trolley lines and a very busy Harbor Drive to get to the convention center. This is not so at other close hotels like the Marriott. Check in is slow. Be prepared. The staff is friendly and competent but they are obviously slowed down by their computer system and requirements to ask you about your music preference and other b.s. This hotel needs more front desk staff. I never saw all the stations full. (Also, concierge was often absent, which meant little to me because I was working the whole time during my visit.) The room was very modern, shower and toilet in separate little booths. Pretty cool, actually. Bed was comfy and pillows excellent. TV worked OK if slow between channels. As a classical music guy, I did not check out the free guitars, etc. I did go up to the Float, the 4th floor open pool, hot tub, bar area. Pretty nice if a bit cramped when full of young folks. Good scene if you are 25, not so great if you are 60. And now to the smell. Yep, that smell. I don't mean weed but an odd mixture of sewage, decay, and car air freshener. The hall way on my floor had it throughout. Luckily, it was less near my room and so inside my room it was OK most of the time. Sometimes, my room ventilation system would put out air freshener odor. Strong. Lastly, elevators were sometimes out of order.

"Great location, party atmosphere"
The location of this hotel is perfect to the Gaslamp quarter. The rooms are modern and comfortable. This hotel caters to a party atmosphere so if you're looking for a quiet night stay at your own risk. The staff are super accommodating and when we were first placed in a room next to a suite with a big party happening they were very quick to move us 2 floors down and away from them. There were still late night revelers in the hallway coming back after a night of fun and while their episodes were brief there were many. Our room was incredibly comfortable and with the location where it is we did have a great weekend. Our lack of sleep is at no fault to the hotel and if we were staying in SD for a party we'd come back here.
