Top Reasons to Visit the 4-Star Hard Rock Hotel San Diego
- The hotel is located in the Gaslamp Quarter, which is known for its fine dining, shopping, and a lively nightclub scene.
- Float, the Hard Rock’s rooftop bar, is an urban garden in the morning and becomes a swinging club at night, with private cabanas and fire pits. DJs spin tracks with the entire Gaslamp Quarter as a backdrop.
- The beds in the studios and suites are illuminated by halo-like lighting effects.
- Music is king here: You can snag codes for free music downloads at the front desk or create your own tunes by renting a Fender Stratocaster guitar for free.
- Nobu, the world-famous, Tokyo-trained sushi chef, created the menu at his signature restaurant, which is located onsite. Expect sushi with a twist, such as the black cod with miso or the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño.
- The spa recently added two new treatments⎯oxygen treatments and facials⎯to its already-extensive menu of offerings.
- You can pick up rock ‘n’ roll souvenirs, including T-shirts, jackets, and watches, at the onsite Rock Shop,. All the pieces were designed and inspired by music legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, and Green Day.
San Diego: Historical Attractions and Electric Nightlife in Southern California
San Diego's sunny, comfortably warm weather and 70 miles of coastline have long attracted vacationing out-of-towners, but the city's inland scene is no slouch, either. The Gaslamp Quarter is arguably one of the trendiest listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The area forms both the historic center of town and a hub of San Diego nightlife, with nearly 100 Victorian-era buildings now occupied by high-end boutiques, jewelers, and gourmet restaurants.
During the day, a stroll through iconic Balboa Park takes you past 17 separate museums, as well as the world-famous and much beloved San Diego Zoo. There's also the vibrant Spanish Village Art Center, a living gallery where local artists continuously produce pottery, handblown glass, and oil paintings for sale.
Farther north, in Old Town—site of the first European settlement in California—shops in Mission-style stucco buildings sell colorful wrestling masks, woven baskets, and maracas. Nearby stands The Whaley House Museum, dubbed one of the Most Terrifying Places in America by the Travel Channel. Ghosts of former residents are said to inhabit the rooms, which are filled with Victorian furniture, eerie dolls, and squeegees for ectoplasm cleanup.
