Andaz San Diego

San Diego - USA


San Diego might be known for its laid back surfer dude vibe, but if you’re looking for a party then the Andaz is the place for you.

This stylish and sexy boutique hotel is right in the thick of the action, just steps from the vibrant nightlife of the trendy Gaslamp Quarter. DJs get things moving every night at the hotel’s hopping rooftop lounge, which is also the perfect spot to soak up the rays the following morning by the inviting rooftop pool.

A warm welcome is guaranteed from the super friendly staff, and the neighbourhood has plenty more to offer than just bars and clubs, with fabulous museums, shopping and beaches all within easy reach.

Nearby Attractions

The Andaz is in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, where you’ll find many of San Diego’s most happening bars, breweries, restaurants and clubs, along with some elegant Victorian architecture.

It’s a 10-minute drive north to Hillcrest, the epicentre of San Diego’s vibrant LGBT community. There’s plenty of lively nightlife here too, along with some great cafés, galleries and vintage shops.

The city’s top museums and cultural attractions are clustered in Balboa Park, about 20 minutes’ walk away, and this is also where you’ll find the famous San Diego Zoo. If retail therapy is more your cup of tea then you can flex the plastic at Horton Plaza, just a couple of blocks from the hotel, while sun worshippers should head for beautiful Coronado Beach, 15 minutes away by car.


The Andaz San Diego has 159 rooms and suites, decorated in a smart and contemporary style with crisp white linens and local artworks.

In your room you can expect to find an LCD satellite TV, iPod dock, free WiFi, mini bar and Keurig coffee maker. Upgrade to a suite for unique extra features such as a steam shower and a private pool cabana.

The hotel has a 24-hour fitness centre and a gorgeous rooftop pool, which is the place to be as the sun goes down. Up here you’ll find The Rooftop by STK, a fantastic restaurant, bar and late night lounge serving fresh locally sourced cuisine, craft beers and craft cocktails, with live DJs raising the temperature after dark.
