Fact: You go to San Diego.

Fact: For the beer. For Baja. For the beach. And that’s just the B’s.

Fact: You stay here now.

At Pendry San Diego, a grand new hotel from the Montage family with more restaurants and bars than one night can possibly handle, now sheltering you during your present and future ventures to the Gaslamp Quarter. Slideshow time.

Yes, there are rooms—317 of them. With 50-inch TVs, ridiculous views and curated surf photography. And nicer rooms. Like the Cabana Pool Suite, with its full kitchen and own poolside cabana.

But you must also know about the...

Den of tranquility.
Aka Spa Pendry, the place where you’ll enjoy a 90-minute deep-tissue massage and other Zen-forward diversions.

Body of water.
Right, that pool again. It’s a rooftop affair with sweeping 5th Avenue vistas and an open-air lounge. In the unforeseeable event that you may want a cocktail up there.

Heedless debauchery.
There’s potential in the six restaurants and bars here. Your best bet might be to start with a German brew at Nason’s Beer Hall. Then proceed to Siberian caviar and maple-sriracha BLTs at Lionfish. Finally, round out the evening at Oxford Social Club, a sexy nightspot with a Gatsby-on-acid feel.

You know the feel.
