The Marin

Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego

Maybe you're in town for a baseball game at Petco Park. Or to see your favorite band. Or to dive into the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter — San Diego's "urban playground". Whatever your purpose, you've made it to The Marin. And we're glad you did. Step off Fifth Avenue and into your historic haven, above the hustle and hum of the friendly faces below. Unpack your bags and sort yourself a snack in the kitchenette before venturing out to explore. The neighborhood might look different from The Marin's first opening in 1882, but you can quickly see why the crowds keep coming back. An electric atmosphere pulses through the streets. Discover new cuisines, new friends, and new attitudes on every corner. For that famous Southern Californian surfing and sunbathing, you can make the short drive to Coronado Beach. End your adventures with a taste of some Cuban classics at Havana 1920 on the ground floor. Please note, your Sonder is above a bar and restaurant and is prone to noise. There are complimentary earplugs and white noise machines provided.

This waterfront district with a colorful history blends Victorian-era homes with modern skyscrapers into a wonderfully unique neighborhood. Boasting over a hundred eclectic restaurants, shopping boutiques, and night clubs, this highly walkable area offers something for everyone.
