Overall a great place to stay!
Amazing hotel in a very vibrant area of San Diego. Could do a lot better with the breakfast choices!
Robert, au3 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Not quite what I expected but large room with a comfortable bed and lounge area. Old building and receptions leaves you wondering what you are stepping in to! Breakfast was a bit lacking but a lovely outlook from the roof.
David, au1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
The hotel is located in a very nice location with a lot of restaurant/bars surrounding it. Reception was welcoming and helpful with advice on sightseeing. However, the rooms are a bit dusty and the bathroom in particular was a bit old. The overall appearance of the hotel was old fashioned and rooftop view was enjoyable.

Not Fancy, Just Good!
Gaslamp Plaza is not the newest or fanciest hotel in San Diego and yet we'll definitely return when we are back in San Diego! These folks are first class with service and friendliness. We were there during the Covid-19 Crisis and they went out of their way to be helpful when bars and restaurants closed down. Mary, who works in reception, is a breath of fresh air!

Beautiful Hotel
We loved our stay at Gaslight Suites. We walked to several great restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.
Linda, us3 night trip
Good 6.0
Thermostat not working and no “maintenance” person available to fix. TV also not working properly and no one available to fix. Bellman stood by watching me struggle w luggage, supposedly because I did not want to use valet parking. All other staff very nice but disappointed for level of property.

Beautiful hotel
Great location to restaurants and bars. Breakfast was simple, but coffee and the essentials were provided. Valet parking was $38 but for overnight parking or risking street parking the one time fee was worth it.

Awesome Place
The ambiance and the location really fit to what we need. Staff are very friendly and approachable. The bar is also classy. They should work out on the parking for their customers though. We had great time and definitely will go back and book to this hotel!

Room was very small and it charged a lots for parking.
