      In the Heart of the Gas Lamp District

      Very Comfortable, great helpful and friendly staff. My only disappointment was that there is no free WiFi available, and it is very expensive to purchase

      Historical Traveler Reviews Gaslamp Plaza Suites San Diego

      Awesome Bargain in Downtown

      from

      This hotel's main attraction is its location in the heart of the Gaslamp quarter combined with its bargain pricing. You can literally walk outside the hotel to dozens of shops, pubs, restaurants and other entertainment as well as many of the sights to see in San Diego. As someone who often stays in 4-star hotels it is a different experience - older facility, limited amenities - but on a positive note the staff was super friendly, remembered us by name, and the suite we had was the twice the size of the average hotel at half the price. The convenience of having a kitchnette and included continental breakfast made it easier for us to spend our time and money touring the city. The hotel is mostly a time-share property, so the guests are there for a week at a time, although you can certainly rent nightly. Valet parking ($18/night) is a must since there is limted street parking. You will probably get the best deal by calling the hotel directly and asking if they have any specials.

      Great location

      from

      We booked a mini-suite, and for the location and size of room, got an excellent price. I'd read some of the negative reviews at this website (no view) so I asked for a top floor room with a view and received it.

      The room was just lovely. Every night we were able to see the sun setting over the ocean. The hotel offers many tours that encompass San Diego and even across into Mexico. There are some improvements that could be made: the continental breakfast could use a boost and the staff at the desk could be a little bit more professional. Otherwise, we would stay there again. A word of warning: the Gaslamp District is very very noisy until 2 a.m. Take your earplugs!!!

      Great place

      from

      stayed there jan 4to 11 2004.great place clean close to everything. we did not rent a car walked and took bus trolly to zoo and other places.lots of places to eat in the gaslamp and lots of happy hours the staff at the hotel were great very helpful

      Great Place To Stay In San Diego!!!!!

      from

      We stayed at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites and had an incredible time. In the heart of downtown, we didn't even need our car once, and prefered to walk because there was so much to offer. We even walked a few blocks up and took the rail to Tijuana for the day. The spa on the roof was very original, and what a view!!!!!

      Great stay

      from

      I stayed at the Gaslamp Sept 27 through Oct 1 before a cruise to Mexico. The staff was excellent - friendly, helpful, courteous. I was female travelling alone and felt extremely comfortable - after the first day everyone greeted me by name. I could walk to sites in the downtown area, all the way to the waterfront, with ease. And when I rented a car for a couple of days, Enterprise was two blocks away so I did not have to go to an airport location. My room was small, but comfortable. The breakfast on the rooftop, while not extensive, was convenient - donuts, muffins, cereal, juice, coffee --and the hot tub was an added bonus at the end of the day. My friends who joined me for the cruise stayed at the Marriott and the Hyatt, and although their hotels had lobbies as big as train stations, they could not believe that I was right in the middle of all the fun of the District. Friday and Saturday night the place was rocking!! I could look right out over the whole scene, and although I did hear music from my room I was able to fall asleep with no problem. This is a boutique hotel without all the trappings of the big guys, but a terrific experience!

      Tiny room

      from

      We were given a tiny, dark room looking out onto the airshaft. It's an old hotel and the rooms are not the size that we would get in a modern hotel. We were told that we should have called ahead to ask for a larger room, but we were never told that in advance. After 3 days (of our 7 day stay) of akign for an upgrade they "found" a larger room for us that they said someone had checked out of early. They shouldn't rent tiny rooms to 2 people who are staying a week. So beware.

      We loved the service at" TGS"

      from

      My husband and I stayed here for a week in September, we loved the hotel and loved San Diego. The workers at the front desk will bend over backwards for you and are able to give you advise on anything.The city steets are swarming with pedestrian traffic on weekend nights, it can get a little loud when the bars close, other than that you are in walking distance of many fabulous restaraunts.We are both thrilled with the location and service in this hotel.When and if you take a bicylce taxi on a weekend night, ask for Erik from Boston....he's my son!!!!!!!!

      Great value

      from

      I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August 2003. It was a great location, excellent value and I highly recommend it. The staff were helpful and the rooms were very clean.

      Gaslamp is Great

      from

      I just got back from a long weekend trip to San Diego and the Gaslamp district. This hotel is fabulous for its sense of history and its great location. Each suite is named after a different author (although our title, the "Thoreau" room, didn't seem to fit the nicely furnished room with lots of extras, like cable tv, wine glasses and bottle opener, a microwave, refrigerator, and ornate molding and wallpaper!) It's the perfect place to stay to really experience the Gaslamp district. Breakfast is very, very limited, but the view from the rooftop terrace is amazing.

      Excellent Honeymoon in the Gaslamp Quarter

      from

      My wife and I were married on December 15, 2001 and stayed for a week at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites. We had an excellent experience there. The people at the front desk were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome from the start. Breakfast was spent on the rooftop overlooking downtown San Diego. The aircraft carrier parked near Coronado Island was also visible from the roof. We found the food from the restaurant located in the Gaslamp Suites to be very expensive but not very good. The Gaslamp Suites are within easy walking distance of a huge mall which was very fun and enjoyable to visit. Overall, we had a great time and recommend it to anyone.

      Today we checked out of our LA Hotel and travelled down to Santa Monica Pier.

      We were there early and watched as the place came to life. Some construction work is underway to repair the effects of 100 years. The Seagulls are huge here!

      This is also the end of Route 66, we should see the start when we get to New York, well we …

Time will tell I suppose! It takes seven days to get to Hilo, Hawaii from here... So that week will hopefully give me the opportunity to get my "sea legs" and hopefully not be too sick as I've heard many people are. I'll post more from when I actually get on the ...

I hasn't ridden with him yet, and now that I got to ride with him, I've officially ridden with the whole team!) and Leash and LilRayRay and Lauren. It was pretty stop and go for most of the 18 mile ride, lots of stoplights. We rode quickly though, adrenaline and excitement pumping with every turn of the wheel. We were the first group to arrive at the waiting spot. And then group after ...
