Fusing uncomplicated and personalized service with a sophisticated and vibrant environment, the Andaz San Diego has officially opened at the property formerly known as Ivy Hotel. Following the successful debuts of three other Andaz locations in London, West Hollywood and New York City, the Andaz San Diego is the second West Coast destination and fourth for the global brand.

“The concept behind Andaz was born out of the belief that today’s travelers are in search of hotels that offer warm and friendly service in a boutique-style atmosphere,” said Rusty Middleton, general manager of Andaz San Diego. “We are excited to offer them that exact experience here in San Diego, one of the hottest destinations on the West Coast.”

Located at 600 F Street in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego, the Andaz San Diego will embody the brand’s hallmark, “personal style,” with a new, simplified check-in process. An Andaz “host” will combine the roles of front office, concierge and bell attendant and check-in guests using the latest handheld technology.

“Our hosts are unconventional, unpretentious and extremely knowledgeable about the hotel and local happenings. Our goal is to make our guests feel like they are being welcomed into a friend’s home, not a hotel,” continued Middleton.

The 159-room hotel featuring 13 deluxe suites and four specialty suites now offers “intuitive and fun” treats for guests. New complimentary amenities include a glass of wine or gourmet coffee upon check-in, a mini-bar stocked with non-alcoholic beverages and snacks, wireless internet, unlimited local phone calls and home-away-from-home comforts to help guests enjoy a good night’s sleep.

A center of dining and nightlife, Andaz San Diego also offers the Ivy Entertainment experience including:
• Ivy Nightclub, a multi-leveled nightclub and lounge complete with signature LipStik, Inc. dancers, world-class DJs, cocktails and bottle service;
• Ivy Rooftop, a sultry lounge, pool and sundeck overlooking San Diego’s skyline; and
• Ivy Wine Bar, featuring 88 wines-by-the-glass from the high-tech and innovative WineStations by Napa Technology.

The hotel’s signature Quarter Kitchen will continue to feature lively American cuisine using fresh and locally harvested ingredients created by Executive Chef Nathan Coulon.

Additional amenities also include a business center, 24-hour in-room dining, Andaz Fitness Center, boutique, Escalade service and 10,000 square feet of meeting space.

Further elevating the guest experience, Andaz San Diego will be a part of the Hyatt Gold Passport program, which recognizes Hyatt’s loyal guests with exclusive benefits. Guests of Andaz San Diego may register for the program in the hotel or online and all Hyatt Gold Passport members will earn points for stays at this new Hyatt property.
