Your Own Private Oasis in the Sky

Skylines, cityscapes and sunsets - San Diego has them all. Yet Hard Rock Hotel San Diego is one of the few places downtown that offers panoramic rooftop views of San Diego's best sights. Overlooking the harbor, historic Gaslamp Sign and the famous Coronado Bridge, our rooftop bar Float offers you and your guests a lavish look into one of Southern California's most stunning views.
