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

Map of Andaz San Diego

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.

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.

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.

Rooftop pool and lounge are highlights
