San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter is in the city’s eponymous downtown neighborhood, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Gaslamp Quarter is known for its dining, shopping and cultural offerings.
The hotel is next to Petco Park, two blocks from San Diego Convention Center. It has 291 guest rooms and 15 suites, all of which have Wi-Fi and work desks. It is known for its rooftop Altitude Sky Lounge, which, at 22 stories up, has 360-degree views of San Diego and is the highest open-air venue on the West Coast. Altitude is available to rent for private events. Connected to Altitude is City Sights, an indoor venue that opened in January. It has a 75-inch television, blackout curtains for presentations and a glass-wall balcony to take in the views of the city.
