Hotel Republic San Diego is part of the Autograph Collection, Marriott’s portfolio of over 125 one-of-a-kind properties worldwide.
The boutique hotel’s goal is to immerse guests in the best of San Diego through insider experiences, a “chic beach house meets private yacht club” design, and a partnership with one of San Diego’s premier restaurant groups. It’s popular with those who want a nice, reasonably-priced spot downtown.
In this review, you’ll learn that I have some perks there that you may want to take advantage of.

WHAT I LOVE
- VIP Lounge for Gold and Platinum Marriott Rewards members and guests who book Club Level rooms

- Coastal room color palette
- Saturday morning yoga class on the terrace
- A killer bottomless beverage menu at brunch (cucumber honey mimosas, anyone?)
- Pop-up events featuring local wineries, local artists, cooking classes, and more
GOOD TO KNOW

- Pets under 50 lbs are welcome
- No swimming pool or spa
- Hotel events are open to non-guests, so reservations are advised
Hotel Republic Location
Standard, City View, and Club Rooms
The 362-foot guest rooms come with high-speed Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, a workspace, and 49″ televisions. Choose between standard rooms and those with a city view.
Club Level guests have access to the Veranda Club Lounge complimentary bottled waters and assorted sodas in addition to a complimentary happy hour (beer, wine, soda, and light bites) and continental breakfast.
Corner Executive Room
Guests who would like a little more space can book the 582-square-foot Corner Executive Room.
The Presidential Suite
The 1,250-square-foot suite features a separate living area and sleeping quarters. It can be expanded into two bedrooms.
Hotel Republic is a pet-friendly San Diego hotel. Every four-legged pet receives a special dog bed, bowl, and mat. Waive the pet deposit by upgrading to the Pooch Package, which features all of the above as well as nightly turn-down for your pup with an in-room dinner of house-made broth and a biscuit, a chalkboard welcoming your fur-baby by name, and a keepsake name tag etched with ‘If lost, please return me to Hotel Republic.’
Three dining options provide all-day dining via quick-service and full-service dining, eliminating the need to look for easy eats outside of the hotel. Or, opt for in-room dining. Note: In-room dining is temporarily unavailable.
Topside Terrace Kitchen & Bar
Dine alfresco on the third-floor terrace and lounge. This is where the popular weekend brunch (and yoga classes prior to it) happen in addition to happy hour.
Banquettes lining the perimeter and a cozy firepit reflect the laid-back San Diego vibe.
The lobby bar is a 57-seat restaurant and cocktail bar called Trade, which offers lunch, happy hour and dinner. The menu focuses on seafood sourced from the Pacific and Sea of Cortez and uses ingredients from local farms.
The Patio Marketplace
Quick-service coffee and healthy dining options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner include bowls, sandwiches, plates, kombucha, craft beer and wines by the glass for those on the move. To-go, prepackaged items are available, too, and guests can also opt for full-service dining as seating is available for up to 46 people.
Every room has a Hotel Republic yoga mat for in-room practice or the Saturday morning yoga class on the terrace.
A fitness center with the latest weights and cardio equipment stays open around-the-clock. Pick up a map from the front desk that outlines both 2- and 5-mile runs along the bay or grab a bike rental to head out on the town.
