"Great location and the hotel staff was outstanding"
We stayed at this hotel for 14 days straight and every day was pleasant. The hotel staff always offered us complimentary bottles of water and they would also ask us how our stay was going and if there was anything else that they could do for us. We received great tips from all of the concierges on the best way to get around town and where to go. The US Grant is where we will stay when we come back to San Diego.
It is a very different experience, with each room customized (according to their website).
Through Expedia, I had booked the Imperiale Suite but forgot about it on the way to the hotel. We walk in and check out every aspect of the room because it was such a cool and different room. We noticed an open door on the other side of the room and see we have our own jacuzzi outside! I check the website and see we were put in the Fresca Spa Suite. It's private and the small outdoor patio is all to yourself.
We took advantage of some of the amenities because of the deal we got from booking through Expedia (popped a bottle of champagne that was in their mini fridge; used the espresso machine the next morning before checking-out).
Make sure to check out the printouts on the desk FRONT AND BACK. We were only there for one night and the morning we were checking out, I JUST saw all the amenities they offer on the back of one of the printouts (you can rent a Ferrari for the day!!!)
I feel the Keating caters more to couples, but it looks like a fun place to celebrate and stay with a bachelorette party
The next time I'm in San Diego,I will definitely come back and try out a different room and experience it for the first time all over again.
The Gas Lamp Plaza more than met our needs. The room was plenty big and very clean. The staff answered any questions we had about the area or places we were looking for. Stepping out of the hotel and traveling a half block to 5th street we had access to a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and bars. It was an easy walk to the convention center or to the waterfront.
This is the second time I've stayed at the Sofia Hotel and you just can't have it better. Great location, walking distance to everywhere in Gaslamp and the train station. Great food places near by too. Staff and hotel bar great too. Love the old fashion decor as well in the rooms. I will be making a 3rd, 4th, and 5th stay here later in the future.
I loved this old hotel. Staff is very friendly and the room that I had was awesome. I had a suite that was very comfortable. I was told the noise level might be high due to being located in the Gaslamp District. However I was on the 5th floor and I didn't hear a thing. I would stay again.
"Outstanding value for a piece of San Diego history"
The 3/5 rating here is not fair to this hotel. If nothing else, the valult in the basement and striking lobby decor are are worthy of more.
The rooms a good, nothing special in them selves, however the hotel is a San Diego landmark.
Location is on the edge of the gas lamp. If you are looking for a lively evening your sure to find it here.
