This location is perfect for all things in San Diego. By the bay , across from the island, walking distance to 5th ave bars and restaurants. This was so an excellent location and perfect property all around.

Excellent location with walking distance to convention center and Gaslight district. Rooms are functional and clean but I would not call them luxurious - furniture is becoming dated. When you first check in watch out for the "$20 upgrade for bay views". I turned down the offer and it turns out I had a great bay view...the same was true... More

Hotel is in a great location, just beside the convention center. Has wonderful Bay views. The rooms are clean, not too spacious but comfortable. Check in was mediocre, Hotel staff is just doing the job. Treatment of HHonors members is below average (2 out of 5 stars). Room rates can be outrages high depending on conventions. Valet parking can also... More

Arrival experience: Polite and efficient check in. But hotel policy on maximizing profit is clear from upcharges offered at check-in (e.g., $20 for a view, more $ for a room with one king versus two queens…). Room (general): Nice sized room. Furniture was clean and in good repair. Two queen beds. A/C was loud. If I had stayed longer, I... More

Well located on the San Diego waterfront and near upscale Gaslamp district, Petco Stadium, convention centre, whale watching tours and Midway Museum. Has most amenities but no fridge in the room and parking is a little costly. Concierge and general service are excellent

Staying here right now for a conference. I didn't realize as a hilton member I could precheck in online. I was able to choose my room....of course I chose the top floor. Clean facility with great shopping options in the area. The spa here is Amazing! It reminds me of a cruise ship spa. Kudos to Rachel who gave me... More

Perfect hotel. Great location--close to convention center, 5th street restaurants and bars, Petco baseball park, Coronado island. 10 minutes from the zoo. Great views. Good dining options. Pool and bar were nice too.

I know this is a primo location- but prices were very high. For rooms, for meals, for drinks, etc. They like to add 18% for tip so be careful. The rooms are very nice- we were on the 18th floor so very quiet. The hot tub was the best thing- very nice and orivate. Enterprise agent Justin was terrific- we... More

This hotel didn't disappoint. The cleanliness was fantastic. The staff was very friendly. I stayed here with the family, we liked the location very much. The pool, though wasn't as fantastic as other hotels, such as Hilton Bonnet Creek Orlando, Florida. The pool had a cool design, but it wasn't very large. Overall our stay went very well. I think...

Beautiful décor. Great meeting spaces. Clean and comfortable guest rooms with great amenities. Food was ok, nothing special. I came in with a very large group and the bar was not sufficiently stocked but it was a VERY large group.
