The Hard Rock Hotel San Diego really came through for me. While I did not stay there, my husband was staying there on a work trip that happened to land during our wedding anniversary. I wanted to surprise him with a room service delivery of champagne and a dessert. I requested if they might be able to include “Happy Anniversary” on the dessert, and they went above and beyond to do so! The timing of my husband’s work dinner had unexpectedly changed to an earlier time the day of the delivery, and the staff helped me out with getting the time updated. They also did a great job of being discreet when they were in touch with him to make sure he was around for an “amenity” to be delivered to him, without tipping him off that it was a surprise room service delivery from me. It was a success, and my husband was blown away by the surprise! Thank you, Hard Rock Hotel staff, for helping me pull off this gesture!
