Amazing historical building. Room size and view exceeded expectation. Roof top very unique. Breakfast could have more variety. Not much for someone who is gluten intolerant.

Nice hotel with perfect location

Loved staying at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites! It was the perfect location, directly in the Gaslamp district and really close to public transportation. The decor was really retro and charming with marble everywhere. I loved having my breakfast on the rooftop deck. As other people have said, the breakfast itself was ok but I really appreciated eating outside. Hotel staff was super friendly. Glad we didn't book with a cookie cutter hotel chain!

Gaslamp Plaza Suites

Pros: Love the location. Rooms were nicely appointed and roomy. Friendly staff and maid service was exceptional as we returned everyday to a nice clean room
Cons: Everything seems fine but maybe breakfast at the rooftop can come with a cook to prepare omelets and other hot items. Validated parking for guests?
Location: Location was excellent! Walking distance to terrific restaurants and pubs aplenty!
Our first time staying at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites in downtown San Diego and it was quite a pleasant hotel. Hotel is clean, well managed and staff was extremely helpful. Upgrading us to a suite when we checked in was a wonderful added bonus (thank you front desk). Location was perfect as a home base to explore the Gaslamp District in it's entirety. Everything was walking distance to all the restaurants, shops, bars and clubs one would want to patronize while in downtown San Diego. Petco Park and convention center a convenient leisurely walk, as is the Westfield Mall. Can be a little loud on Friday nights and weekends so be aware that exterior noise from nearby bars and clubs can be distracting. But the excitement of 5th Ave and surrounding area is definitely a great vibe if you're a night person. Hotel offers free breakfast on the hotel rooftop which gives you some incredible views while enjoying your coffee and bagels. Would definitely stay again.

close to all

Pros: hotel, staff excellent
real nice hotel and area but the one downside THE HOMELESS PEOPLE!!! They are aggressive and harass tourists and I won't stay downtown again. As long as people who live and work there tolerate this, it won't change.As a tourist who paid a lot of $$$ to stay there I have a choice and I won't be back. I remember NYC in the 80's and when people had enough it took POLITICANS WITH GUTS to take back the city.People of San Diego find them!!!

Outstanding!

First time guests. Great location in the heart of Gas Lamp. Walk to the marina, convention center, Horton Plaza, Petco - anywhere downtown. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was ultra-clean and comfortable. Rooftop continental breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day. Valet parking was 40% less than other hotels. This is now our go-to lodging in San Diego.
