The Keating Hotel by Pininfarina

The Keating Hotel by Pininfarina Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Keating Hotel by Pininfarina is most notable for its striking red and black interiors designed by the Italian car company behind Ferrari and Maserati. Just like the cars, this historic hotel's makeover is sleek and chic, with a sexy ambience. The industrial-style rooms have Italian luxuries such as Lavazza espresso machines and custom-designed glass rainfall showers. Not everyone will appreciate the lack of privacy some of the showers offer, though, and guests have to pay for upscale amenities (Wi-Fi, turndown service, the Lavazza espresso and tea, and a welcome amenity) by way of the nightly resort fee. The Gaslamp Quarter location is great for partying, but travelers who don't want to be in the same building as Coyote Ugly, which is bumping late into the night, should check out the nearby Andaz San Diego, or the eco-friendly Hotel Indigo.
Hard Rock Hotel San Diego

Hard Rock Hotel San Diego Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 420-room Hard Rock, located in the hip Gaslamp Quarter, hosts wild parties on weekends at its popular rooftop pool and bar. It's a haven for twenty- and thirty-somethings (including celebrities), and trendy rooms have big flat-screen TVs and high-thread-count sheets. But it's not particularly kid-friendly (420 rooms and a restaurant called Maryjane's where happy hour starts at get the idea), so families should consider the nearby Hotel Solamar.
Andaz San Diego

Andaz San Diego Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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.
W San Diego Hotel

W San Diego Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 258-room W San Diego Hotel is a youthful, upscale property in Downtown San Diego, within walking distance to Broadway Pier and the Gaslamp Quarter. Modern common areas include a stylish lobby lounge, a vibrant restaurant, and a posh, happening rooftop bar. Blue-and-white rooms have chic furnishings, minibars, and cool window seats, but some are on the small side for the price. The hotel offers a (very small) heated rooftop pool surrounded by lounge chairs and a fitness center, but the fees are high for Wi-Fi and parking. The just as scene-y Andaz has bigger standard rooms and a cooler location in the Gaslamp Quarter, so it may be worth comparing rates.
Tower 23 Hotel

Tower 23 Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Leisure travelers looking for a modern boutique hotel with a cool, beachy vibe and easy access to the Pacific Ocean may want to consider Tower23 Hotel. Rooms range from standard "pads" to suites; many have balconies and at least partial ocean views. Potential guests may want to take note that rooms surrounding the upper courtyard are loud at times, as the spot attracts both hotel guests and non-guests alike. There's no need for a car for those looking to primarily explore the immediate neighborhood of Pacific Beach, with its many restaurants, surf shops, activities, and pier. The hotel also loans out bikes, which are great for exploring the beach path out back. The hotel is often sold out on weekends, despite its hefty price tag. Travelers might also want to check out the Pacific Terrace Hotel.
The Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows

The Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The chic Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows once played host to Hollywood heavyweights including Bob Hope and Ava Gardner. A 2011 renovation salvaged much of its original allure, and these days, it's a mid-range haunt for hip locals who come for the Olympic-sized swimming pool, rockabilly shows, and regular pool parties. The private bungalows are stylish and fun, but not all the rooms are fit for a superstar. There are some housekeeping issues and the late-night parties may not appeal to all. The pool can get crowded, as it's open both to overnight guests and to locals with a membership or day pass. Travelers who don't mind the weekend party atmosphere tend to enjoy both the affordable rates and historic legacy. It's in a great location for club hopping and taking in San Diego's counterculture, while being fairly central to many of the city's tourist attractions.
Hampton Inn San Diego-Sea World/Airport Area

Hampton Inn San Diego-Sea World/Airport Area Rating: 2.5 Pearls

This three-floor, 208-room hotel is a family-friendly value option with a pool located within a 10-minute drive of Sea World. Multiple freebies are on offer, including free hot breakfast, a free airport shuttle, free coffee in the lobby, free Wi-Fi, and free weekday newspapers. Parking costs a fee, however, and the immediate area -- right off the freeway -- is a bit gritty: Two strip clubs are in close proximity. The lobby is modern and attractive, while rooms are typical generic chain hotel fare; some have microwaves and mini-fridges. It's also worth considering the Best Western Plus Hacienda, which has a more appealing setting near Old Town.
