Great location, lots of night life. It can get loud on the weekend due to the location but didn't bother us.

Hi Melis, Gas lamp is awesome, isn't it?! We love the vibe here. Glad you still were as rested as can be after a fun night out here. In the future if you'd like a quieter option, we have inside facing rooms available. Thank you for staying with us!

Convenience Reasonably Priced

Pros: Cleanliness, friendly and knowledgeable staff, convenient location.
Cons: Price benefit for returning visitors.
Location: Plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby.
Every time we stay at Staypineapple at Hotel Z San Diego the staff is friendly and the hotel is clean. It is conveniently located downtown and has an electric car that will take you to any nearby location if needed. The price is pretty reasonable(Note: this time we stayed at the end of January) and the rooms are tastefully decorated. I would advise staying on an upper floor as we stayed on the first floor this visit and it did get a little noisy a couple of times but other than that this hotel is perfect for a stay in the city.

Modern Hotel - minimalist

Pros: The staff!!!
Location: On the edge of the Gaslight Quarter and easy walk to the convention center.
You know that the stay will be interesting when you get into the elevator and a random stranger tells you that the sheets are in the drawer. Resisting the urge to reply that the eagle had landed, I inquired as to what he meant. He replied that the hotel used duvets and no top sheet and that if you wanted sheets you had to make your own bed. There is also no closet, no bath tub, no bars or soap and a tiny work space. It's clean and the staff is friendly and extremely helpful, there complimentary bikes and a electric shuttle available.

Great hotel with fantastic staff

Overall experience was great. However, the building next to it was under construction which made for stone very loud mornings. I would definitely still recommend and stay at any of their properties again.

Nice low-key hotel in the Gaslamp District

Cons: The European bedding, though luxurious, was quite warm for San Diego. There was one "spare" blanket in the drawer which I found to be plenty warm.
We had a great stay at Hotel Z. It is a smaller, quieter hotel than many of the large high-rise hotels in the area. Therefore the service is very personalized and efficient. Despite it's "boutique" size, the amenities are wonderful. Everything you need including great products, robes, slippers, thick towels, wonderful bedding, and daily pineapple cupcakes! The staff is wonderful. Very helpful in advising on area attractions and good places to go. The location is awesome, right in the heart of the Gaslamp District and very convenient to the convention center. Tons of great restaurants in the area. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to my friends.

Convenient location to Convention Center

Pros: Comfortable room
Cons: If the hotel isn't going to add any infrastructural amenities, it would be great if it could provide some nice things like a breakfast pastry spread.
If you're going to San Diego for the Convention Center, this is a great affordable option close to the site and near many restaurants. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with friendly staff. The hotel does, however, lack amenities. No pool, restaurant, room service, gym, etc. The website also says they have cupcakes in the afternoon, but I never once saw these put out in my 4-day stay. They do have bikes that you can use and take a nice ride around town.
