What We Love

  • Style- and design-focused hotel
  • Even when you take a sip of the in-room Evian or Badoit water and Gancia sparkling wines, Pininfarina is at play — they designed the packaging.
  • In-room dining means more than ordering off a shortened menu; your concierge can serve a four-course wine-paired feast.
  • Bang & Olufsen in-room entertainment gear
  • Ferrari rentals

Upon arrival the guest was told that there is a 12,5 USD "Spa Tax" per day. That covers the possibility of having a prosecco as wellcome drink. Extra-cost mentioned nowhere prior to check-in.

No lights @ the bed, no possibility to switch room light on or off while in bed.

Sink was plugged

Nice neighborhood

Non sensitive staff.

Ended up having to cancel due to severe personal circumstances (severe). When I call to explain my situation the only thing they cared about was to collect the full amount of the stay as the fee was non refundable. Their lack of empathy made me even sicker.

Sizeable room, comfortable bed, just a little dated
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

When booking somewhere to stay, The Keating Hotel was the most reasonably priced for the location and standard. Overall, I was happy with my single night (Wednesday) stay and would probably stay again for the right price. My partial reluctance comes from the hotel being a little dated in decor, the slow speed of the lift, size and positioning of the TV, and, despite my room being on one of the top floors, it was a little noisy until about 1.30/2 am due to proximity of bars. Nevertheless, the location is fantastic, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

San Diego's Gem

From the minute we walked in we were greeted warmly and the staff was available for whatever you needed. The room was amazing and the view spectacular. It is very well located for walking around San Diego.

Great Boutique Hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We loved this hotel and its location! The staff was very friendly and the room was very cool. The only downside was finding out about the daily boutique fee, which we weren't aware of when we booked it.
