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.

The staff was amazing, hotel nice, clean and charming. We stayed here on a business trip and although this hotel is not typical for business they accommodated our every wish and were extremely pleasant. Wonderful experience all the way through from working with group sales to check-in to check-out. Two thumbs up!!

Great location, super-friendly staff, and cleverly laid out and comfortable rooms make this a winner. The bed was second to none. Love the European comforters. Free WifI, free water, bottle filling station and fresh coffee in the lobby were an unexpected and welcome surprise. The room was quite, too, which is never a given in this part of town.

The amenities and attention from the staff were stellar, super friendly team, comfy well kept rooms, and a short walk away to the convention center, restaurants and night life. Worth the stay while in San Diego

This was our first time staying at Hotel Z. We mentioned to the front desk it was our anniversary and they were incredibly nice and gave us some complimentary gifts. It wasn’t expected, but it was incredibly kind of them to do. All of the staff were friendly and helpful at all hours of the day. My only complaint with Hotel Z is that the walls can feel pretty thin. Granted it was a weekend, and we’re staying in Gaslamp. There were some pretty loud people each night that would roll through pretty late, at times it felt/sounded as if our door was open. This is less of an issue with Hotel Z, and more so our neighbors haha. That’s really the only thing I could possibly complain about though. The location is insane. It’s within walking distance of pretty much anything you’d need. Everything else was incredible and we will definitely be staying there in the future, especially when we’re in town to watch the Padres!

I recommend to stay here because of room cleanliness, comfortable bed, shower is awesome, really convenient location because of really close to all this entertainment like restaurant and club/bar. But most of all the stuff and especially the manager, Allan Lucero, best hospitality, great awesome attitude, very friendly , always had beautiful smiles every time you’re talking to him. Great management 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Love the room ❤️❤️❤️

Softest bed, nicest staff, most unique architecture. Probably one of the coolest hotels I've ever stayed in. I will absolutely be coming back sometime soon. Heck, I'd come back just for the sugar cookies.

First time (and won't be the last time) staying at a StayPineapple location. Super easy online check-in that actually worked and saved time, welcome drink and cookies, cleanest room I have been in for a while with all the amenities you would expect. Best part? The entire staff (shout-out to Derrick, Lulu, and everyone else) were amazing, friendly, gave great local recommendations, and made the experience even better.

Stayed in San Diego while visiting my son. When I was reviewing hotels I knew I wanted to stay somewhere different. Hotel Z Stay Pineapple is definitely an eye catcher. Just the bright building itself was appealing. When I checked in I was greeted with a hello welcome, a nice huge friendly smile on his face. This eased my nerves as this was the first time traveling by myself. The room was extremely tidy and clean. I loved that I had a little cutie waiting for me on the bed Dash, with an option to purchase and a donation would help other doggies in need. They atmosphere was great, they definitely made me feel so comfortable and safe there. I will definitely stay here again! No question to it!
