5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We relocated here from the hard rock across the way as we were not told it was spring break there. The last minute booking was handled with expediency and care. It turned our two night ministay before Hawaii into a much deserved rest. The access to walking and ferries was excrptional.

Amazing views, beautiful hotel with friendly staff. Close to Gaslamp, petco park and right next to convention center. Parking was very easy, guest room was very clean and very quiet. I ordered room service and the food was so wonderful that I ate in for dinner too.. Would highly recommend to any traveler for business or pleasure. Truly had a... More

I was very disappointed with my stay at this hotel. Even though it is a business hotel, there was no concierge floor. The person checking me in said that Hilton is getting rid of all of their US concierge floors which means I will avoid Hilton properties in the future. In addition, there were no mini-bars or refrigerators in the... More

This Hilton was by far the best customer service experience I've had in a decade. Starting with the outside guys who welcomed me, the front desk staff who were very friendly and also welcoming, as well as the male concierge who booked a shuttle, the overall welcoming vibe was outstanding. Compare this to my review of Hilton Bonnet Creek last... More

Stayed for a convention. The hotel meets all the requirements for a good hotel experience. Disappointing that wifi is an additional (high) charge, and still kept dropping through my stay for hours at a time. I moved from a view over the shipping yard to a bayfront view which was better. Food on site (which is reasonably far from gaslamp... More

Well it's a Hilton so you don't expect to find something extraordinary what concerns the design of the hotel, but it's a Hilton, so you expect top quality because you pay for it and I was quite disappointed. It's a very big hotel (30 floors), you won't be alone. The building is very well situated if you want to go... More

The employees were great but only giving the hotel itself an average. If you want to relax by the pool on a Sun, Mon, or Tues you will have to put up with the constant slamming of shipping containers onto the banana boat. The boat is also in view of the pool. If you are a couple looking for a... More

This hotel stay wasn't horrible in any one specific area but was across every aspect of service frustrating, annoying and poorly executed. I expect conference hotels to be more expensive than need be but my experience here exceeded expectations in being overcharged for every item. The costs are usually tolerable due to convenience during a time of busy schedule and... More

If you're in the San Diego area and are travelling with your dog, this is the place to stay. There is a grassed area right outside the front doors and a lovely sea walk and park area to walk to. There is no smell of dog in the rooms or obnoxious cleaning smells either. It's a very central location, only... More
