Been to this hotel twice. Once with family and once on business. Family = Hotel pool and accessibility to the bay was great. Restaurants were overpriced but the kids liked the pool food. As a business traveler, not so much. WiFi available in lobby or you pay. Parking = $20 (or so). Given that a comparable business hotel near gas... More

We stayed for 4 nights over 4th of July. Crowded but that was expected. Check-in person was totally disinterested, barely a hello. No smiles, etc. Got a great deal on hotwire, but found out once we got there that they charge $24 a day to park and $3 a day to give you the little tray with bagged coffee, etc... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The location is awesome - beautiful view of Coronado and the bay and the city! We walked to Petco Park - so easy with a raised walkway right to the stadium from the hotel. Walked to the Convention Center next door to catch a shuttle to Coronado - easy, inexpensive and fun! We did not... More

Just stayed at the hotel. Arrived after a long day with family at SeaWorld (~6 PM), the room we reserved (hypoallergenic) was not ready (clean) and was told it could be 2 - 3 hours. Given that the family was tired, that was not an option, so they place in a non-hypoallergenic room. I had to plead with the staff... More

I spent the most part of 2 days looking online for a hotel with a water view, within walking distance of attractions, and within my budget. That's how I found this gorgeous gem!! Absolutely beautiful with amazing views. Our room was comfortable, nicely decorated, and big enough (no fridge or microwave). Bags and bins are provided for recycling (thank you!!)... More

This is a very nice hotel with all of the amenities you expect from a higher end Hilton. The rooms are a little small. The room however has a large window with a view of the bay. The really nice thing is the window has a wide ledge for setting drinks, etc. on while you are sitting on settees staring... More

Great service, friendly people. Room service was fantastic. Lay out of the lobby is a little strange. Access to coffee shop is outside. Needs to be indoors. Same with some of the restaurants. Rooms where very clean and quiet. Staff was very helpful about local eats and places to see.

Stayed at this hotel for a conference in June 2014. It was a pretty hotel in a good location - close to lots of restaurants and nightlife. Standard rooms were just that - standard for a Hilton. Not spectacular or unique, but clean and just what you would expect from the brand. I am a Hilton member but there was... More

We visited here for one week. We had 2 kids and 2 adults. We were with a large party of over 100 people and it was a great stay. Our rooms were a good size and had a beautiful view. The property has several restaurants on site too.
