    Historical Traveler Reviews San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter

    Wonderful experience

    from

    My Sister, Nephew and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights ... We had nothing but great experiences. Everyone from the bellhops to the front desk were so accomodating. The location was great for access to the trolleys , Seaport Village and Petco Park. Views from the waterfront room were outstanding. We stayed on the Concierge Level which gave you access to the Club lounge. This was nice as we could have breakfast there daily and if you choose, cocktials and snacks in the evening. There was also a computer with internet access for all to use. I would definately return to this hotel when I go back to San Diego. I hope it is soon!

    What a treat!

    from

    We had originally booked a room in Laguna Beach, but due to some problems there, we decided to find lodging elsewhere. We were able to get a room at the Gaslamp Marriott on short notice (less than an hour!) and could not have been more thrilled with our choice. We have stayed at the other Marriott location, a couple blocks away next to the convention center, but never at this location. We were welcomed by the staff, from the valet to the front desk, and made to feel at home. They even gave us a special promotion package that included a free movie, free parking, and breakfast for two. What a nice bonus! We had originally planned on staying one night, but extended our stay to two. The room was great, with a view of Petco Park as well as the Coronado bridge and the ocean. The bed was super comfortable, with down bedding. Room service was prompt and friendly, and the food was superb! The location is great, right in the middle of shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, etc. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We can't wait to go back!

    Great decor couldn't make up for lousy service

    from

    Visited for business trip during April 2005.

    The hotel is situated right next to Petco Stadium. The street is effectively closed during game hours and immediately before and after, making drive up to valet inconvenient.

    Rooms were lovely. Very upscale for a Marriott, but not beyond anything I had ever seen before. The in-room "CD" Player was low-end and didn't work. An "engineer" had to come up to fix it and ended up replacing it.

    We were placed on the Concierge Level, which for these days was on the 18th Floor. The true concierge level is the 21st Floor. So, our concierge was in a bedroom. We got our coffee at the head board, newspapers at the dresser and snacks by the closet. A real "class" operation.

    The business computers in the concierge and business center were set with such high security that I, along with other business travelers were unable to access our company email accounts.

    Private parties take precedence over paying guests at this hotel. It is a chain hotel playing it up like a boutique. A sports party on the top floor commandeered two of the four elevators and guests were turned away and intimidated by goons hired by the party for security. Hotel staff did nothing.

    The restaurant Soleil@K was a highlight. An excellent menu and nicely appointed dining room made up for the lack luster service. The downturn was the influx of cigar sucking drunks who overrun this place after the baseball games.

    The fitness center was closed when we were there - although the website said it was open. Altitude, the rooftop bar, was closed too, although the website said it was open. Closed to the public the whole six days. Open for private parties. We paid a whopping $275 a night. Unless you're a Marriott Rewards Member looking to rack up points, I'd suggest going one block north to the Solamon Hotel. We toured it when we considered leaving this Marriott. It was cheaper, but much more chic and they understood that a good hotel is more than decor - they focused on service.

    An okay stay, but I wouldn't revisit and WARNING stay away during baseball season unless your a BIG fan.

    Not your typical Hum-Drum Marriott

    from

    Stayed here for a conference and felt I won the contest for best convention hotel. Maps of downtown do this property no justice for its proximity to the convention center, Petco Park, and the Gaslamp restaurants and clubs. The rooms were sparkling (as you would expect from a new hotel) and the bedding was beyond belief. Even though the Omni looks closer to the convention center and baseball park, this is just as close, honest. The service was almost southern or midwestern with their friendly attitudes and helpful nature. The restaurant was above par for other Marriotts, the ground floor bar was excellent and charming. Even though the other Marriott is on the harbor, this boutique is hands down a better property. I cannot wait to go back next year, hopefully it will be during baseball season. The idea of watching the game from their soon to open roof-top bar is very appealing.

    Superb in every way

    from

    My wife and I stayed here for five nights in mid January. The hotel was more upscale than the typical Marriott and was spanking new.

    The bedding was very comfortable and teh decor outstanding. There were floral displays in the lobby that were breathtaking. The staff could not have been more accomodating

    We enjoyed the restaurant and ate several meals there. UInlike most hotels this one was nearly a gournet experience. Of the six dessert choices we managed to try five of them and they were all excellent.

    The location is quite convenient. Given the choice I would recommend the Gaslamp Marriott over the Horton Plaza Westin.

    Excellent Location!

    from

    We drove down from Norco, Ca. for a trade show. When we arrived in the Gas Lamp District, we looked for underground parking for the hotel. Save your time on looking. It's ONLY valet parking, that's it. The folks were friendly and ready to help. The room was clean, beautifully re-decorated & even had a little office. We were on the 9th floor & sometimes during the day you could feel like a rumbling underneathe the floor. I was on my computer from 1pm to 2pm (the second day I was there) and for 15 minutes there was a screeching noise, like a boiler room eeking.... So stay on the highter floors if you can... We had a great time. Seconds from wonderful restaurants and clubs.

    Beautiful Place!

    from

    Marriott's newest hotel in San Diego is definitely one of it's nicest. With a location right next to Petco Park in the Gaslamp Quarter neighborhood, you really can't go wrong staying here. Marriott labels the hotel a 'boutique', and that's a pretty accurate description - it's smaller & far trendier than the typical larger hotels found in the Marriott chain. Rooms are tastefully appointed with super premium beds & linens, and full marble baths (with Gilchrist & Soames spa products & Starbucks coffee as a nice added touch). The restaurant & bar there, Soleil@K, serves up tasty dishes in an atmosphere that screams 'California Cool' - open flame ovens in the kitchen, and a dining area & bar infused with nice warm wood touches. If you stay at the hotel, I would highly recommend a 'Bay Side' room - the views of San Diego Bay, Coronado Island, the Pacific Ocean, and even Point Loma on clear days, is absolutely stunning! If you're a baseball fan, rooms on the Bay Side of the hotel on the higher levels have views into Petco Park as well. The only negative of this hotel is that it is small, and finding rooms in it during busy times of the year will be very difficult. My seven day stay was just about perfect, and I would recommend staying here to anyone.

    Great Choice for a Gaslamp Hotel

    from

    Just spent a weekend at this newly remodeled hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp district. The rooms were nicely decorated and in addition to our super comfortable bed, we had a great view of Petco park. We loved the hotel's location just steps away from many trendy restaurants and nightclubs. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and recommended an excellent babysitting service. We had a terrific breakfast (try the smoothies!) in the hotel restaurant.

    Wonderful hotel with atmosphere

    from

    Stayed for a convention. Marriott recently took over this hotel and are almost finsihed their renovations. Funky lobby with terrific staff, doormen. Rooms are nice and contemporary, many have great views. Terrific location just a block off the busy streets of Gaslamp and 5 minutes to the convention center. Concierge lounge, pool and health club weren;t finished yet but should be in March. Highly recommended, much more personable than the larger hotels and with the expected Marriott touched (great beds!).

    Excellent, Newly Remodeled Hotel

    from

    Stayed at the Gaslamp Marriott for a trade show in late January, 2005.

    It had just opened in late December.

    Nice location, next to Petco Field and walking distance to the convention Center. Numerous restaurants within walking distance in the Gaslamp Quarter. All newly remodeled facility. Comfortable bedding with TONS of pillows. Breakfast downstairs in the morning was excellent and not overly pricey. Employees were helpful and friendly. No Pool, fitness center was not yet open.

    Would highly reccomend.

    ... animals it's unreal! They had an enclosure that contained 2 best friends. A dog and a cheetah!! The zoo pair them together because the dogs calm the cheetahs down as they are usually aggressive and hyper! They proved it by parading the cheetah in front of a crowd with no railings or fences and he just looked around and licked his trainer!! Got lost in the Hippo Trail (the map was wrong!!) but managed to cover the whole park as well as get pizza, ...

    Having been here a few years ago for half a day with Dan I always said I'd have to come back and see a bit more. There's this really cool vibe to the place, but can't quite pin point what makes it so.

    ... Mar fair, which is fortuitously in town when we are. Having heard of limited parking, and needing to exercise, we walked to the fair. This turned out to be more needed than we realized, as the first 300 yards of the fair were dedicated to tempting and incredibly unhealthy treats. Thankfully, we didn’t succumb to the deep friend Snickers, or deep fried cheese curds, or many of the other truly disgusting "only at a fair" concoctions that some evil ...
