The mid-century modern Pearl feels more Palm Springs than San Diego. The 23 rooms in its 1959 shell have soothing blue hues, trippy surf motifs and fishbowls. There’s a lively pool scene (including ‘dive-in’ movies on Wednesday nights), or play Jenga or Parcheesi in the groovy, shag-carpeted lobby. Light sleepers: request a room away from busy street traffic.
On-site parking is limited and costs $10.
The Pearl Hotel is located only a short drive from San Diego's vibrant Gaslamp Quarter. Guests at the hotel can also easily visit Fort Rosecrans Military Reserve and National Cemetery as well as Point Loma Lighthouse.
Charming guest rooms at the Pearl are furnished with flat-screen TVs and wireless internet access. Guests can also enjoy free films at the hotel's poolside theatre, cocktails from the lounge or a delicious meal from the on-site restaurant.
