You’ve been hustling all your life, putting your nose down, grinding hard, pushing yourself to the limits all for success and financial stability. It seems you’ll never “make it,” like your goals are so far away, until one day, you look up and see, you’re here. You can afford those box seats at a game, to take your love on a fancy date, and stay at an high end boutique hotel. And you should! You worked hard, now treat yourself – with a stay at the Pendry San Diego.

The Pendry San Diego is an elegant property in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, one of the most vibrant places in town. It has bars and restaurants, shopping, the San Diego Convention Center, Petco Park, and is within an easy drive to the beaches and other amazing areas of the big SD.

It means experiencing the other five dining options on-site.

Here, luxury exudes through the soaring ceilings, trendy furniture, and posh materials that mix and mingle into a seamless style that’s upscale SoCal. Yet, it doesn’t overwhelm, making it easy to feel comfortable and relax fully.

Take the rooms for example. They’re classy, but cozy with simple white beds, tartan seating, and old-fashioned wooden desks. While we give top marks for minibars, Bluetooth speakers, free Wi-Fi, 50-inch TVs, and Fili D’oro luxury linens, it was the glass showers that caught our eye. The transparent glass walls look out into the bedroom… Really, need we say more? Imagine you, your one and only, and that shower.

And the luxury doesn’t stop there. Pampering yourself with this hotel means hitting up their 24-hour, fully-equipped fitness center and laying out by the rooftop pool, which has an indoor and outdoor lounge area, prime bar, and great cocktails. It also means a spa treatment at Spa Pendry. You know you could use a massage.

It means experiencing the other five dining options on-site. Start your mornings off right with Vittoria Coffee and a light breakfast from Provisional. Have a midday craft beer and watch a game at Nason’s Beer Hall, their upscale sports bar. Pre-dinner drinks are best had at the hotel’s Fifth & Rose, a spot that’s both sleek and romantic. Your tastebuds will explode at Lionfish at dinner with any of their sushi, seafood, and coastal dishes. At night, you’ll want to hit up their speakeasy-like space, the Oxford Social Club, for a drink or two.

There comes a time in all of our lives when we have to say, “We’ve done it, we’ve made it. Let’s treat ourselves.” Enjoy the fruits of your labor and treat yourself with a stay at Pendry San Diego. You deserve it.
