Lobby Bar Area at the Guild Hotel San DiegoExterior Patio at the Guild Hotel San Diego

The Guild Hotel offers a prime location for your next trip to the area conveniently located in Downtown San Diego. It’s a short walk from the Gaslamp District and Little Italy, and just a few steps away from the San Diego Bay.

The hotel is part of San Diego history, located in a former YMCA building that was originally constructed in 1924. As it was retrofitted to be a 4 star, luxury hotel, the designers made sure to maintain many of its historic design elements.

Local Tips
Prohibition: San Diego's Original Speakeasy Bar
Prohibition is the original speakeasy bar in San Diego and it is well worth checking. This 1920's atmosphere bar is a great place to grab a craft cocktail or a beer with a friend. You might even catch some live music on your visit.

Today, the hotel offers three different options for dining and drinking on-site. Luca offers modern Mediterranean food in a chic courtyard where you can enjoy San Diego’s beautiful weather. The Grace Garden is also situated outdoors and offers healthy options for lunch. Indoors, you’ll find the Guild Bar, where you can enjoy cocktails, beer, and wine in an elegant lounge space. The hotel also offers continental breakfast for a small fee.

The hotel also has a modern fitness center on site that is open 24/7, and guests also have access to the nearby Broadway Athletic Club. You can also rent a beach cruiser bike from the front desk based on availability.

The hotel is also known for its spacious ballroom, which is an ideal place to host weddings and other events.
