Accommodations in San Diego near Gaslamp District


Gaslamp District (San Diego, USA)

The Lights are Shining Bright in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego

The huge popularity of the Gaslamp Quarter is due in no small measure to the influx of tourists and exhibition delegates visiting the Convention Center. So, things have certainly changed since the days of an unsuccessful attempt to revive its fortunes when, devoid of inhabitants, the area became known throughout San Diego as Rabbitville. Today, though, and as you wander around, you’ll become aware of the name of Alonzo Horton. Examples include the outdoor Horton Plaza Park. In the 1860s, his revival attempts in the waterfront area were dramatically successful and so began the roller coaster of activity, ever-increasing visitor popularity, and some extremely busy hotels.

Day and Night, There’s Animal Magic in the Gaslamp Quarter

About half a mile away, in the Marina district, sits San Diego Convention Center. Here, the Sails Pavilion provides a huge space for events and exhibitions that draw up to 125,000 delegates and visitors; many of whom pack the hotels in the Gaslamp Quarter. One of the most popular is the very conveniently placed Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter.

For recreational activities including baseball and other outdoor pursuits, head off to Petco Park Stadium and, of course, you’ll love the thousands of animals at the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park. The Gaslamp Museum recounts tales of the quarter’s colourful past and, as the sun goes down, it’s time to relax into the nightlife. As for the numerous and varied restaurants, don’t assume that the busiest are always the best. Strolling around the Gaslamp Quarter and forming your own opinion is by far the best barometer.

San Diego is a Fine City With a Wonderful Climate

Gaslamp Quarter is a part of San Diego’s downtown district and has an authentic, 19th-century character. It’s the sort of place where, at night, there’s a great party atmosphere when San Diego’s colourful characters come out to play. This district though shouldn’t be confused with the old town area which is about five miles away and beyond San Diego International Airport. Don’t worry; all are areas well worth exploring in this city which has been described as America’s finest.

The main tourist season is between the months of May and September and, boy; it can get really busy, and hot. Either side of the summer; the months of March and April, and October and November are still warm but distinctly less crowded.

Explore the Intriguing Gaslamp Quarter From Your Ideal Hotel

The entire Gaslamp Quarter is unusual; but for a strikingly different hotel location nearby, you might like to sample the island setting of Hotel del Coronado which is around five miles away and accessed via the Coronado Bridge. Closer to home; Staypineapple at Hotel Z, Gaslamp Plaza Suites, and Andaz San Diego, are among the many other hotels that are a few hundred yards away from this enthralling Gaslamp Quarter. Alternatively, just wallow in the rooftop pool at The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, or relive Mediterranean memories in a Little Italy B&B.

These and many more hotels and other accommodation choices are perfectly placed to enjoy the attractions of this quirky Gaslamp Quarter. Play safe though, and pay a quick visit to trivago to find the perfect place for you.
