This hotel knows how to make an entrance. Its soaring lobby is a please-touch welcome of buttery leather–covered columns, an edgy wall-length mural and mod loungers, all presided over by a Vogue-worthy staff. They kick things up a notch in the sultry rooftop bar — a communal firepit and cabanas that invite bad behavior silhouetted against glittering skyline views. With no stuffy uniforms and no front desk to speak of, the experience is more like being greeted by an old friend — an old friend who happens to look as if she belongs in a Vogue spread.
Bed & Bath
Sophisticated yet sleek, the 159 guestrooms come in creamy whites and chocolate-browns, with custom features in warm woods. The aesthetic balances modern design (think glass and steel tables and white sofas) with warmth and comfort. Expansive windows overlooking the Gaslamp Quarter add a good dose of natural light. Exhibitionist bathrooms have glass walls open to the bedrooms, along with rain showers and built-in speaker systems, ideal for pumping some jams while getting ready for a night out.
Bikinis and sunglasses replace cocktail dresses and stilettos at Andaz’s rooftop bar, RoofTop600, a haven of private, secluded cabanas. Downstairs is the Andaz Wine Bar, which offers some 88 vintages by the glass.
In the Area
Andaz San Diego is located in the lively Gaslamp Quarter, within walking distance of the city’s trendiest galleries, boutiques and restaurants. Soak up some culture at the Museum of Contemporary Art, housed in a former rail depot downtown. Animal lovers can spend the day with gorillas, giraffes and bears at the famous San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park, while golf enthusiasts hit the green at Torrey Pines Golf Course, a clifftop course that looks out over the Pacific. At the end of a busy day, peckish guests should take on the Noble Experiment, a gastropub speakeasy backed by bartender Sam Ross, formerly of NYC’s Milk and Honey.
How to Get There
We just wrapped up a great weeks after snagging a great rate in their top suite.
The staff were friendly and prompt. we had a minor issue with the surround system but their technicians took care of it really quick.
We stayed at the Andaz Star Suite and it was awesome. It had king bunk beds !! how awesome is that ! plus a full bar and its own separate king bedroom on the side.
we had lots of fun. thanks Hyatt !!
Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Location of the hotel was convenient to the Gaslamp Quarters. The room was comfortable and clean. Bed was a queen size and the linen smelled so fresh. This was the second time I stayed here and would stay again.
First time at a Andaz Hyatt property (only because the offered price seemed reasonable which doesn't happen often). Loved the interior space, layout and European decor of the lobby and the spacious room. Bed and linens were luxurious, as was friendly staff and attention to details (like getting a replenishment of everyday use items one may have forgotten to pack for travel). I am not a huge fan of Gaslamp district, so not particularly impressed with location. Public parking is within a block and half one can and should use (but without in-out privilege) if you want to avoid the huge valet parking costs
Friendly and accommodating staff - a welcome feeling when away from home. Conveniently situated in the Gaslamp District. Modern rooms with good amenities. Although some rooms have street noise, Tyler thoughtfully arranged for me to have a quiet room - greatly appreciated!
This is my worst stay ever. Even worse than the places I used to crash as a college student. The rooms and amenities are Ok but my room was so loud that you cannot possibly do anything peacefully. The staff helped me change rooms and then the second room was pretty small. Moreover, I could not even open my curtains since it was facing the road full of homeless people. I will never ever ever recommend this place to anyone. Such a big flaw in design. Sorry Andaz
