Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter

Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter marks the iconic brand’s first city-center location on the West Coast. Open since August 2023 after a $30-million renovation, this hotel offers a Southern Californian take on the Margaritaville experience, featuring San Diego’s largest rooftop pool deck, vibrant and beachy accommodations and three dining concepts.


Margaritaville Hotel San Diego’s design infuses the Margaritaville brand’s signature island visuals but with a modern and California-chic vibe. The stunning lobby, which is very photo-worthy, utilizes raw materials like stucco and concrete, custom hand-made furnishings from reclaimed wood, and creative works from Mexican artists. The margarita glass chandelier is one of the most beautiful artworks in the hotel’s grand room. Unique to the region, this chandelier is comprised of colorful, eye-catching margarita glasses that were hand-blown in Mexico. The meeting spaces and hallways are influenced by Jimmy Buffett’s Laurel Canyon days, with art and décor that echo the Golden State in the 1960’s. Visible from the rooftop pool deck and even from the street down below, two larger-than-life vibrant parrot murals are painted across the exterior walls—such attention to detail and little touches throughout give this hotel a unique charm.


Conveniently located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown San Diego, Margaritaville Hotel San Diego is ideal for guests who are looking to have a good time in the city. There are great spots to dine and drink without leaving the hotel, but guests are also within walking distance to Petco Park, the San Diego Convention Center, and all the top bars and restaurants in Downtown San Diego.

LandShark Bar & Grill

Margaritaville Hotel San Diego is home to three distinct dining concepts, offering guests a variety of options without even leaving the hotel. Opening at 6 a.m. daily, guests can grab coffee and snacks at the Margaritaville Coffee Shop until 11 p.m. The LandShark Bar & Grill located on the first floor is the hotel’s signature restaurant. The ambiance is a beachy bar vibe featuring a Margaritaville plane hanging from the ceiling and garage doors that open to the street on a beautiful day. The menu features a Landshark burger, fish sandwiches and tacos, plus a selection of craft beers, cocktails and frozen drinks. Don’t forget that it’s always 5 o’clock at Margaritaville Hotel San Diego’s rooftop bar–aptly named 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar. This is a perfect spot for sipping cocktails poolside, grabbing a bite to eat or enjoying the regularly scheduled live entertainment. As San Diego’s largest rooftop pool deck, guests can take in the sweeping, panoramic views of the city from here.

5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar
