The hotel is in a great area, in the Gaslamp District, close to public transportation, and the Embarcadero just to mention a few. Nobu is in the hotel and is a must to try. There are tons of great eateries in the district. The staff was great and our room was very nice. We would stay here again.

I lost my brand new pants in the closet. When I realized it the day after I checked out, I called the frontdesk and I even took Uber back to Hardrock hotel, they even don’t want to check the closet for me. Even there is no one living in that room. They replied to me I must lost it somewhere else…… And during my 5 nights in the hotel, the air conditioning is not working, I am very cold. And shooting happens around the hotel area the day before I checked out. Very dangerous!

I loved that we had a balcony. Jordon who checked us in was excellent. We did not have hot water in the shower one of the days but other than that the hotel was fun.

Stayed here for a girls weekend with a group of 6, and had adjoining rooms. It was absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean and spacious. The only thing there was no mirror in the room only the restroom.

I enjoyed the area. However, waiting on the engineer to fix my room’s bathroom toilet that was clogged and I cannot believe room service did not take care of this issue on the first time.
