Hard Rock Hotel San Diego Rating: 4.0 Pearls
The Hard Rock's trendy rooftop bar Float is one of San Diego's party hot sports and a true celebrity-magnet. The venue hosts wild weekend parties and DJs until 2 a.m., with good views, lounge couches, fire pits and expensive drinks. There's a popular happy hour starting at 4:20 p.m. daily at Maryjane's, one of the hotel's restaurants. The spacious rooms come with vouchers for free iTunes downloads, a fully-stocked minibar, iPod docks and halo-illuminated headboards that give the room a dance floor ambience. A visit to the Rock Spa will make sure you fully recover from a wild night out... And maybe get you ready for the fun to come.
W San Diego Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
The stylish W San Diego is as hip as you'd expect a W to be, with sleek beach-inspired rooms featuring up-to-date technology, 24-hour room service perfect for organizing small private parties, and a stocked minibar with snacks. However, the main draw of this scene-y property is its artificial beach lounge, which features sand, fire pits, lounge chairs, heaters, cabanas for rent, and a full bar with great views and a popular happy hour. The hotel's lively lobby, with DJs and games, fills up with a classy crowd in the evening. It serves cocktails and snacks until 2 a.m. daily.
