"The central location of the hotel is great. It's within walking distance of Balboa Park, Gas Lamp district, and the Maritime Museum. It's even close to the freeway for excursions to beaches and hiking parks. The rooms are functional and nice, and the staff is courteous."

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


With a coveted downtown address minutes from the Gaslamp Quarter, the Declan Suites San Diego is a stone’s throw away from landmarks such as the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, San Diego Museum of Art, and the dining and shopping of the Hillcrest District and North Park.

The renovated property unveiled a new look this summer, with sleek check-in pods and a live video feed of the city projected onto the walls of the lobby. The hotel’s hallways are adorned with vintage records and Fender Acoustic guitars that play tribute to the musical culture of San Diego, complementing the hotel’s proximity to Copley Symphony Hall.

All rooms are spacious two-room suites, some of the largest in downtown San Diego, and come with a separate living area including a pull-out sofa, complimentary Wi-Fi and city or harbour views.

Near the lobby, the Deck 12 serves up local fare inspired by the city’s relaxed, seaside atmosphere, with indulgent signature dishes such as Ensenada grilled fish tacos and scallop and shrimp ceviche. After lunch, guests can follow the salty breeze to the 70 miles of glittering coastline that lie just a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

Enjoyed Most: Check-in was fast.
Other Comments: The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. When I called the service desk during the night no one answered. Finally after getting a hold of someone I asked for smaller pillows they said to come down and get them myself.

Enjoyed Most: The Deck 12 restaurant and lounge was fairly good. The valet service was good, although it should be for the daily rate they charge.
Other Comments: The Declan Suites was not what I expected when I looked at their website prior to our vacation. The hotel lacked the warmth I was expecting. The parking situation also added $35 per day to our stay. Self Parking was a nightmare so we went with valet parking to save time and hassle. We have vacationed in other parts of the country and every hotel or resort we have stayed at have welcoming guides that tell you what the hotel or resort has to offer, and free vacation guides to the local sites. This hotel had nothing that gave you a reason why you should have fun there. Really was a big letdown.

Other Comments: All staff are very friendly. The hotel looks modern and clean, the room is very nice too. The carpet in the room looks slightly old though.

Enjoyed Most: The suite was a large, comfortable space. The views were fabulous. Ideal location to walk around downtown.
Other Comments: The room was not as clean as I would have hoped it would be. It needed to be vacuumed, the tub was not clean, just not my idea of walking into a clean room.

Enjoyed Most: The central location of the hotel is great. It's within walking distance of Balboa Park, Gas Lamp district, and the Maritime Museum. It's even close to the freeway for excursions to beaches and hiking parks. The rooms are functional and nice, and the staff is courteous.
Other Comments: While it's great to have a microwave in the room, it doesn't help much that there is no refrigerator. Surprisingly: no coffee maker in the room (a strange place to save money, I guess), so it kind of hurts those "early morning lounge around the suite drinking coffee" vacation days. No room safe.
