AAA Inspector Notes
Sleek guest rooms feature bold colors and modern, custom-made furnishings. Studio units and suites available, most with great city views. The public areas are more like a museum than a hotel. The walls are filled with rock 'n' roll memorabilia from various stars over the years and custom-made signage quoting many rock stars' thoughts that have had an impact on that music genre. Red curtains part as the elevator door opens and inside you get to be part of the band on stage as seen in photos that line the walls. When the doors close you see a single free-standing microphone where you can join in on the fun if you so desire. This is more than a hotel, it is a total sensory experience to explore to your heart's content. Smoke free premises. 420 units. 12 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: The access pass to free rentals and the use of key card for elevator
Cons: People were drunk. Someone vomited on my balcony from above and the guest across the hall was yelling at 4 am, it took the hotel too long to resolve the situation.

Pros: Proximity to marina, convention center, and bars/restaurants in Gaslamp District
Cons: Traffic very noisy - will keep you up at night. Staff promised to change our room, but gave it away. Didn't have shampoo or conditioner in our room when we arrived. Supposedly refunded our resort fees because of these problems, we will see about that!

Pros: Location, artwork, vibe, room
Cons: Cost- $14.26 for a bottle of water-really? Accounting method- so everyday my card was being charged fr $100 to $200 for "incidentals" when all I purchased was the bottle of water and a breakfast ($32) They also do not tell you about the fees added later.

Pros: The location is good and you got free coffee in the morning from Mary Janes.
Cons: You could hear the loud noises of the building ventilation pipes, fans. Had to switch room twice. The hotel staff was accommodating. And the hotel is in downtown area. unfortunately the rooms are not sound proof enough by the city's hustle and bustle.
