Andaz San Diego

One of San Diego's best urban luxury hotels also boasts great nightlife and sushi dining.

A guest room at Andaz San Diego

Originally the Maryland Hotel (built in 1914), and most recently the Ivy Hotel, this Andaz property is the latest in a string of stylish, luxury Gaslamp Quarter boutique hotels catering to the young, upwardly mobile, fun-loving set. Its transformative design includes glowing agate wall panels that line the entrance and enormous urban art that backs the rear wall. A stay here means pampering, as well as good food and innovative cocktails at the poolside The Rooftop by STK. In addition, art plays a significant role, with original pieces in the guest rooms and signature murals and sculptures by local artists.

With their personal butlers, in-room bottle service and Thai bed linens, the 159 accommodations seem to anticipate every want or need. Consider splurging on one of the whimsically themed suites such as the two-bedroom Sweet Suite with soaking tub and gargantuan shower; the Cabana Suite that adjoins the pool and sports an in-room spiral staircase; or the sexy Star Suite with king-size bunk beds, a central, glass shower that turns opaque upon use and — oh my! — a stripper pole. Although the rooms are small, service is top-notch. This hotel draws a crowd at night for clubbing, which means guests can dine on excellent food, dance the night away and sleep in luxury all under the same roof.
