The Pendry

The Pendry rubs shoulders with the hip haunts that pepper San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, making itself ideally placed for experiencing the nightlife, dining scene, art galleries and sports games of this great Californian gem.

The hotel likes to keep up with its neighbours, which is why you may find yourself attending an art exhibition, DJ night or live gig at The Pendry itself, and you certainly won’t be short of places to wine and dine thanks to six well-executed restaurants and bars here.

On top of this, The Pendry has a much sought-after feature that makes it stand out from the crowd: a rooftop pool and bar where you can recline on a sleek sun lounger, soak in the hot tub or hideaway in one of the cabanas.

Delicious fare and cocktails come with the territory, but pool party Sundays are a real extra treat that you simply can’t miss. When you’re hankering for a slice of wellness, be sure to book in a treatment at the spa; whether a deluxe facial, mani-pedi or restorative massage, to name just a few.

There’s also a steam room here and 24-hour fitness centre, plus yoga and meditation sessions.

When you’re not luxuriating in the spa or posing by the pool, you might find yourself unwinding in one of The Pendry’s trendy communal spaces with a cup of coffee – or something stronger, perhaps. The entire interior design is a mod affair comprising art-deco inspired chandeliers, brass accessories and period-style furnishings, all conjuring a sense of Californian cool. This extends to the guestrooms which are dressed in shades of blue and look out over the city or bay, tempting you to come explore the many delights of San Diego.

Accommodation Options

This glamorous nightclub is at once gorgeously cosy and super cool.

Nason’s Beer Hall
Nason’s Beer Hall

A truly American dining venue with big screens, bar games and live music nights. Make sure to come here with an appetite – tacos, wings, burgers and hot dogs are the order of the day, all washed down with a fine selection of craft beers.

Fifth & Rose
Fifth & Rose

Fifth & Rose is a stylish space with a polished, black bar, potted palm trees and high ceilings lit by chandeliers. The signature cocktails – Cedar, Black Maple, English Elm – are all named after trees, adding a fresh, fun, natural flavour to the menu. There are also tasty light bites available throughout the afternoon and evening, while on Sundays, a live jazz band adds a further touch of class.


At Lionfish, the focus is on wholesome produce that is both sustainably and locally sourced, with the Pacific Ocean providing much of the restaurant’s seasonal ingredients. Oysters, whole lobster, king crab and grilled octopus feature alongside sushi, sashimi and speciality fish rolls. Come early to make the most of the long list of wines, cocktails and spirits here, relaxing into this warmly lit, welcoming space with industrial-inspired furnishings, or sit out on the sun-dappled terrace during long summer evenings.

Activities and Entertainment

There is always something going on at Pendry San Diego itself, whether that’s leisurely jazz in the refined atmosphere of Fifth & Rose, living it up with happy hour, partying at Oxford Social Club, catching local bands in Nason’s Beer Hall or indulging in the gourmet delights of the hotel’s many bars and restaurants. Then, the hotel’s location in the waterfront Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego means there’s a plethora of entertainment options on your doorstep as well. The neighbourhood is stuffed with restaurants, bars, galleries, shops and historic sites; Petco Park is also nearby, where you can catch a game of baseball.


While The Pendry San Diego is without a doubt alive with entertainment options, there are also spaces in which to take some time out too. Escape to The Pool House on the third floor for a spot of sunbathing and a dip in the outdoor pool, or enjoy some downtime in the spa, offering an array of ocean-themed massages, body wraps and polishes, facials, manicures and pedicures. You can also unwind with some yoga or blow off some steam in the well-equipped gym, open 24 hours a day, and for anything else, the hotel concierge is always on-hand.
