A chic city retreat
Andaz San Diego is an upscale retreat spot located in the city's downtown historic shopping, dining and nightlife hub known as the Gaslamp Quarter. Andaz comes from the Hindi word meaning “your personal style,” and from the moment you pass through the hotel’s front doors, you’ll see why it’s an apt moniker. You are welcomed as though you’re a guest arriving for an extended stay with friends — complimentary glass of wine, sparkling water or herb-laced iced tea awaits while your bags are carried in by the amicable bellhop, who will learn, remember and use your name throughout your stay. At Andaz, there’s no need to wait in line for help at a check-in counter; a staff member armed with an iPad will take care of the details as you sit in the lobby area and take in your posh new surroundings.
As for the rooms, Andaz has you covered with a wide array of sleek guest rooms and suites. Each well-appointed abode feels modern and loft-like with streamlined furnishings and high-tech amenities, such as flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. Other hotel highlights inlcude three dining venues, including an ultra-cool rooftop lounge with retractable ceiling, an elegant wine bar with on-tap vinos and sushi haute spot Katsuysa.
