PENDRY SAN DIEGO - SAN DIEGO, CA

PENDRY SAN DIEGO
550 J STREET
SAN DIEGO, CA. 92101
619-738-7000

We booked the Pendry San Diego based on reviews and their #1 ranking on TripAdvisor.  From the start I did not like this place.  Yes it is located in the middle of the Gas Lamp District which could be nice if you like large crowds, noise, music and traffic until 3am.  Just getting into the hotel on a Friday night was a mess.  Streets packed and not much room for cars to enter the valet in front of the hotel.  Valet workers here were mixed.  Some nice and helpful and others arrogant as can be.  I hated going to the valet each morning to pick up our car because of the attitude they gave.  Plus parking here is $50 per day and you have to tip these guys.  The Pendry tries to be a hip party type hotel for the younger generation which is nice.  The large bar that fronts the lobby is loud and crowded with people spilling over into the lobby on weekends.  The thump of the music carried through our room on the weekend until 3am.  Our room was small and tight and the bathroom was a jail cell and not worth the money it cost to stay here.  The refreshment center has the system where if you move or pick up any item it automatically charges your room.  I hate this system.  Never experienced any type of good or memorable service during our stay with exception when we checked out when it seemed like another hotel.  I would never stay here again but for many it may be the perfect place.  They throw pool parties with Las Vegas style cabanas and music which brings some interesting people into the hotel and pool area.  Did not try any of the restaurants in the hotel because we always could not wait to get out of the place.
