Stylish 4-Star Hotel in Bustling Gaslamp Quarter

Judging from its stately Romanesque exterior, you’d never guess what The Keating Hotel looks like on the inside. Built in 1890, the building has served as a public library and a bank over the years—in fact, the original vault is still intact in the basement. More recently, a team of prestigious designers got their hands on the historic hotel’s interior. Pininfarina Extra, the Italian auto house behind Ferrari and Maserati, completely revamped The Keating, incorporating bright-red minimalist decor. The loft-like stanzas—Italian for “rooms”—come with exposed brick walls. The furniture is custom-designed, and the modern amenities include in-room espresso machines.

Located in San Diego’s historic Gaslamp District, the hotel is within walking distance of some of the city’s best dining. But there are some excellent options onsite as well. Brick+Mortar, a modern American eatery, has a selection of creative Italian-inspired dishes, including pizzas topped with grilled prawns and wild-mushroom gnocchi. In the evening, hip patrons gather for cocktails in the basement-level lounge.

The hotel offers four different types of rooms, ranging in size from 300 to 1,200 square feet. Even standard rooms include goose-down duvets and feather beds. Stay in one of the Chic suites for a little extra space; these units have a corner area with lounge seating overlooking the bustling Gaslamp Quarter.

Highlights of San Diego

  • The Gaslamp Quarter forms both the historic center of town and a nightlife hub, with nearly 100 Victorian buildings occupied by high-end boutiques, jewelers, and gourmet restaurants.
  • Balboa Park houses 17 museums, as well as the San Diego Zoo. There's also the Spanish Village Art Center, where local artists produce their works.
  • Old Town: Here—the site of the first European settlement in California—shops in Mission-style stucco buildings sell colorful wrestling masks, woven baskets, and maracas.
  • Spooky locals: The Whaley House Museum was 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 and eerie dolls.
