Sometimes a late date night of dancing and cocktails is in order.
Whether you're leaving kids with a sitter or looking to wow a new interest, Hard Rock Hotel San Diego has developed a couples' itinerary that is sure to impress.
With a prime location in San Diego's hip Gaslamp Quarter, the trendy hotel is home to two of the city's best nightlife spots, and they recommend that guests on their epic date night itinerary take advantage of both, among other things.

Start by checking into one of the 17 custom-designed suites with sleek decor inspired by urban living. You may want to pour a drink to enjoy from the suite's terrace, which overlooks the Gaslamp Quarter and beyond.
(Note: If you booked a silver suite or above, then you'll already have received your cocktail at check-in. Plus, you can tap into a dedicated VIP concierge for the duration of your stay.)
Have a custom playlist delivered to your suite, which is fitted with a state-of-the-art sound system.
The in-house Rock Spa offers sensual couples' spa treatments to take advantage of in their lavish couples' suite, ranging from 80 minutes to 4.5 hours of bliss.
Choose one before or after check-in to relax before your big night out.
Prep here beforehand with a reservation (made well in advance, of course) at the exclusive Nobu restaurant. Yes, a branch of Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's famous Japanese restaurant is located right inside Hard Rock San Diego.
Be sure to order the black cod with miso – the dish he made famous around the world – as well as yellowtail jalapeño.
But don't get too full, as dancing under the stars at one of the city's premier night clubs is next. Float is a rooftop lounge near the hotel pool, where basking in the sunshine with margarita works by day, until DJs begin spinning tunes at night.
VIP bottle service ensures that no one goes thirsty, while firepits keep guests warm and cozy when it's cold.
Next, hit the other nightlife spot on-site: the stylish 207 lounge. Guests of the hotel skip the queue and cover charge with complimentary VIP passes.
If it's a weekday, rest your tired feet, as comfortable sofas provide the perfect spot for canoodling and conversation over a cocktail.
DJs spin tunes on the weekends, so it's possible to dance here, too, for a change of pace.
Finally, turn into your fabulous suite for the evening. Hopefully, you booked one with a terrace hot tub!
