Flooding forces guests from rooms at Hard Rock Hotel downtown

SAN DIEGO — Guests and staff dealt with flooded floors at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego late Sunday night.

The issue was reported after 10 p.m., when a water line broke on the seventh floor, San Diego Fire officials told FOX 5.

Two inches of water was pooling on the floor and leaking down to the fifth and sixth floors.

Crews shut the water off as some guests were forced to leave their rooms. The guests were relocated to other rooms in the hotel.

“The seventh floor is currently out of order but we have workers onsite right now to identify and repair the problem.  We have not had to shut off water to the hotel and the hotel will remain open,” Hard Rock Hotel spokeswoman Rana Kay said. “Our primary concern is ensuring that our guests are comfortable and taken care of.”

Since the pipeline that broke was on private property, the city’s water department crews were not called to the hotel, according to City of San Diego spokesman Arian Collins.
