Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Boutique hotel with a hip rooftop pool and lounge

The Andaz is indisputably hip, from the bright, airy lobby with large columns and free snacks, to the sexy wine bar with wine on tap. It attracts a young scene, which is not surprising considering its Gaslamp Quarter location, and popular rooftop pool and lounge.

 Location

In the Gaslamp Quarter, near shopping and Petco Park

The Andaz is located in the hip Gaslamp Quarter, just two blocks from the Horton Plaza shopping and six blocks from the San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park.

The historical Gaslamp Quarter, located between 4th and 6th avenues, and between Broadway to the north and Harbor Drive to the south, is a hip, young neighborhood that's home to some of Downtown San Diego's best restaurants, shopping, nightlife, boutiques, and art galleries. It’s also where some of the city’s most popular outdoor celebrations -- Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, and the Street Scene music festival -- take place.

  • 10-minute walk to Horton Plaza shopping, with over 130 stores
  • 12-minute walk to the San Diego Convention Center
  • 14-minute walk to Petco Park
  • 5-minute drive to Seaport Village
  • 8-minute drive to the San Diego Zoo
  • 8-minute drive to Balboa Park
  • 8-minute drive to the Maritime Museum
  • 12-minute drive to the San Diego International Airport
  • 13-minute drive to Sea World

 Rooms

Sleek, spacious rooms with modern amenities

The rooms at the Andaz are sleek; don't expect a lot of decoration, but they have a sexy vibe with plush, white bedding, wood-paneled closets and minibars, and pops of color in the graphic art on the walls. Modern amenities such as large flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and Keurig coffeemakers come standard. The rooms are quite spacious, but the slate-tiled bathrooms are not.

 Features

Rooftop pool and lounge are highlights

Features here are extensive, but the rooftop pool and lounge stand out. Other nice spots for congregating include the wine bar (with wine on tap), as well as the hip, modern lobby with free snacks. The fitness center is modern, but it feels dark and cramped.

 Bottom Line

This 159-room boutique is one of the sleekest hotels in the Gaslamp Quarter, with a popular rooftop lounge and a sexy wine bar. Rooms are minimally decorated but attractive, with slate-tiled bathrooms and modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi and large flat-screen TVs. Some minibar items are also available for no additional fee, and the rooftop pool is a nice spot for a dip.
