Being in a pandemic and wanting a simple get away, our experience with the Hard Rock was horrible. Room was a disappointment. Nothing as pictured- our room keys did not work, although we asked for a new room key that new set of keys did not work. TV in the room did not work- the shower was mediocre. Will not be returning to the Hard Rock in San Diego.

The property was difficult to get into due to road closures and parking was even worse I highly recommend using Uber/Lyft or public transportation. Overall the experience was good and the hotel was amazing.

Easy check in, no touch check out. It was nice to get a text welcoming us and with information about dining, entertainment & night life in the area. It's walking distance to all the restaurants in Gaslamp District.Our room was nice and clean with various channels. We should have picked a room away from the door to the hallway, it slams every time someone walks through it. Otherwise the overall experience was great! I will recommend this hotel.
