Travellers' Choice
At Hotel Z we’re serving up cozy rooms with contemporary pizzazz plus a side of friendly. But you aren’t visiting America’s finest city to stay indoors, are you? Outside our lobby sunny streets reveal the cosmopolitan culture of the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Feet are all you need to access roof-top restaurants, conventions, ball games and wild animal adventures. Choosing to stay at Hotel Z is easy; the hard part is deciding where you’ll go after check-in.

Check in and out was super simple, contactless and convenient. This was my first time traveling with my dog and the experience was phenomenal. They had a welcome bag for my dog along with her name on a board to welcome her and the other pets during their stay. She got a dog bed, daily milk bones, a water bowl (to take home) and poop bags. Michael that worked the night shift just adores dogs and was attentive and helpful. Jared on the morning shift came out during our check in to help us with our bags and take it to our room so we could focus on our dog who has never been in an elevator. The bed and duvet were soft and comfortable! The towels were super absorbent unlike other hotels where it just does not cut it. The best part of all, was that the room did not smell like dog AT ALL! Everything was clean and disinfected thoroughly. Exceptional customer service, super CLEAN and the hotel is centrally located. We were close to Petco Park, dining, Padres team store, coffee and shopping. I am definitely going to stay here again in the future even without my dog!

This hotel…. This hotel was amazing. The staff was unbelievably friendly. We got in around midnight and they opened the doors and welcomed us. The day staff made everything perfect with all requests from local restaurants to helping find out way. Seeing the dogs staying there was fun. We didn’t have a flight until later and asked to leave our bags while we did one last tour of the city and they had no problem holding them safely. The hotel is located in the gaslight quarter and the nightlife is lively. Their mascot is a little husky with a pineapple hat. Who can’t go wrong with that (we bought two stuffed ones to take home for our kids). We can’t wait to go back and take our girls and are already planning on staying again. There is no pool but that’s fine. There is an ocean only a brief walk away. The linens are the softest I’ve ever had, and that’s coming from someone that travels for a living. 12/10 will recommend to anyone. It’s fun and youthful oh and the K cups have pineapples on them. New favorite hotel chain. We will be heading to New York in a month and will be purposely looking for their other hotel there just based on San Diego.

We were right in the center of everything! The hotel was clean and comfortable. The beds were amazing. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Not only were we within walking distance of so many attractions, shops and eateries but a short Uber ride from all the beaches and other places we needed to go. I would stay here again and again and will be looking for another StayPineapple in the next city I visit!
