Overview

Night city view from Gaslamp Plaza SuitesLobby elevators, Gaslamp Plaza Suites

Elegance combined with History

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, the Gaslamp Plaza Suites is an elegant, European-style hotel situated close to everything visitors love about San Diego. Vacationers enjoy settling into the comfort of a beautifully appointed room or suite while corporate travelers appreciate the hotel’s restful environment and proximity to customers and clients. Original architectural elements reflect the hotel’s storied past.

Lofty Ambitions

Constructed in 1913, this building was once the city’s tallest, a handsome skyscraper that still provides wonderful views of San Diego Bay. Although taller buildings now dot the San Diego skyline, this 11-story hotel still maintains a commanding presence and beckons to visitors who appreciate a bit of history with their elegant surroundings.

The family-owned San Diego Trust & Savings Bank occupied the space until the headquarters was relocated to the corner of Broadway and Sixth Street in 1927. Going forward, the building housed a variety of professional businesses including the Jewelers’ Exchange for gemologists, jewelers, importers and exporters.

The change to a small luxury hotel is a fine example of re-adapted use. In addition to the original architectural features, visitors admire the marble, bronze and brass elements for which the building—listed in the National Registry of Historic Places—has long been known.

Breakfast with a View

Guests staying at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego will enjoy complimentary Continental Breakfast served on the Rooftop Terrace. As you start your day, take in the stunning skyline or the view of San Diego Bay from your table or lounge chair.

Dining recommendations

If you’re looking for something unique in dinner fare, bring family and friends together for a gourmet, multi-course fondue adventure at The Melting Pot just off the hotel lobby. Here you’ll find a variety of delicious cheeses, salads, entrees and desserts. Another relaxing option is the Vin De Syrah Wine Bar with its 12-foot candlelit tasting table and semi-private sitting rooms. Enjoy small “bites,” both healthful and decadent, to accompany your selection of wine, beer or spirits. And if you are in the mood, you can dance the night away to the sounds provided by the Vin De Syrah DJ.
