"One night stay to celebrate our 66th anniversary "
Very nice room, comfortable and clean with a lovely view if SD Bay. Came back after dinner with friends to find a lovely plate of fruit and cheese awaiting us along with a pleasant card wishing us Happy Anniversary.

"Nice downtown hotel w/ great access to everything"
I needed to stay at a hotel for a week because of repairs to my home. I also needed a place that would accept pets. And, I wanted a place that would be close to my work, which is downtown. The Sofia was reasonably priced and fit the bill.
I knew that the Sofia had been completely remodeled and was now considered a nice boutique hotel. I was impressed with the quality of the remodel and the aesthetics of the hotel. Although my room was small, it was very comfortable and nice. Towels, bedding were good quality. Carpet clean and modern. Kind of odd shower arrangement with no curtain or full screen. It allowed bathroom floor to get pretty wet. Television was great but channel selection was limited. There was free wifi.
Hallways were fine. Elevators were small but operated okay. Lobby had several areas where you could sit and chat or watch television, although you couldn't change the channels, which was a little aggravating.
Currant restaurant was accessible from hotel lobby. This is a high quality restaurant with great happy hour deals on food and drinks. Other restaurants very close.
All staff encountered were great.
Hotel is within walking distance of downtown San Diego restaurants, waterfront, shopping (Horton Plaza, Seaport Village), and downtown businesses, courts, law firms, banks. 7/11 in next block. Trolley within a block. Homeless people an issue near hotel, but this is the case throughout downtown San Diego - really unfortunate situation.

This hotel was a wonderful discovery! Perfectly located, clean rooms, delicious beds, but most of all a wonderful staff. From the moment we got to the hotel, staff made us feel at home. They went out of their way to make us feel at home, suggested where to go, and even brought me cupcakes although they were out (delicious by the way). We will definitely be going back soon.

This is our fifth time staying at the Hard Rock Hotel. The experience is always amazing and the service is always excellent. They upgraded our room upon request when we checked in. The front desk staff was able to accommodate and anticipate our needs since we came late from a race in Temecula. The beds were comfortable and it wa the perfect place to recover from our race.

Great location, wonderful staff attention, and offerings for service and amenities. If only the weather had cooperated, it would have been amazing. It was beautiful and very centrally located with underground parking, if you have to have a car for other parts of your trip. Parking there is expensive, but not unexpected.

San Diego’s waterfront airport lies northwest of downtown, which is home to the San Diego Convention Center, PetCo Park stadium, and the Gaslamp Quarter’s. That historic neighborhood’s restaurants and bars are the hub of the city’s nightlife. Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo form a green swath in this urban jungle. Offshore, Coronado Island offers postcard views of the city skyline.
