Hard Rock Hotel in the center of San Diego's Gaslamp District

Just outside our hotel entrance are the footings of the famed Gaslamp Arch—the gateway to excitement. With dining, drinking, and entertainment options everywhere, the Gaslamp Quarter is a night-and-day hub of excitement in Downtown San Diego. This charming neighborhood offers 16 blocks of pedestrian-friendly thoroughfares, historic architecture, and exciting nightlife.

The Gaslamp Quarter Starts Here

Venture a few blocks away from our Gaslamp Quarter hotel where you'll find the San Diego Marina and Seaport Village, with dozens of charming boutiques, restaurants, and cafés. Hit the boardwalk for outdoor entertainment and let the sea breeze surround you. This historic district is also home to several annual celebrations that bring the party to the streets of San Diego, including ShamROCK, Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp, and the Street Scene Music Festival.

Sports fans can get the best of both worlds, with awesome bars and pubs in the quarter, and Padres baseball just a block away at PETCO Park. For conference and exhibition attendees, the San Diego Convention Center is conveniently located right across the street from the hotel.

If shopping is your sport of choice, hit up Horton Plaza, a large, indoor mall with countless major retailers.
