Overview

Imperial suite bedroom, The Keating HotelImperial suite living room, The Keating Hotel

For travelers who are looking for more than a typical hotel experience, The Keating Hotel offers a personal, unique kind of accommodation. Found in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, this 35-room boutique hotel blends modern and vintage elements for a style you won’t find at any of the big chains. Its Romanesque-revival building was completed in 1890, and while The Keating may not have been in existence for the entire 130 years since, the hotel certainly has made a name for itself, standing out as a landmark in this historic district.

From the lobby to the rooms, every detail of this hotel has been created by the Italian design team of Pininfarina, perhaps better known for Ferrari and Maserati sports cars than interior décor. The spacious nonsmoking rooms are all either lofts or suites, and each offers luxury with custom wood furniture, distinctive Frette linens, and stainless-steel accents. Each room has a fully stocked minibar as well as a Lavazza espresso machine and complimentary bottled water. When you aren’t out exploring, you can relax in a cozy bathrobe and listen to music or watch television on your 42-in Bang & Olufsen TV and sound systems.

Tea and coffee are available in the lobby, and you can grab a bite for breakfast in the café or sample one of the many fabulous restaurants right outside the door.

This gorgeous building has lots of history, but it also has the modern amenities that discerning guests would expect from a hotel of this caliber, including a fitness center, in-room spa treatments, business services, meeting rooms, and a 2,500-square-foot event space. The Keating is the perfect home base for your San Diego adventures.
