Great hotel to stay at in San Diego. Close to the gas lamp district in downtown and not far from area attractions. The room and view of the bay are excellent. Very modern hotel and staff is very friendly and courteous. Sucks that you have to pay for parking but you are in downtown area. That is only complaint. If... More

Everything was nice but too pricey. $32 per night extra just to park car. Transient occupancy tax added another $20 per day. It costs extra for Wi-Fi internet access. Nice location but be prepared to pay extra for most things.

My first time at this property. I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious and accommodating lobby. I was promptly helped. I was certain I had booked a room with King bed with a view, but was told I hadn't. They fixed that, but not without a $10 charge. Got to my room with a nice partial view of the bay,... More

Overall, hotel is in a great location which is why we picked it. Valet took quite a long time to acknowledge us even though it appeared there were several staff and not many cars--disappointing for the over $40 per night valet price they charge. Rooms are sub par and are a little aged for what the hotel is made out... More

all the staff was exceptional and very friendly. Hotel was very clean. We stayed there for a work group and everyone was very pleased with the accomodations. The hotel was centrally located to all sorts of fun things to do and good restaurants all in walking distance.

My only regret about this hotel is that I didn't stay longer. We got in about mid-afternoon and were upgraded to one of the luxurious 'named' suites with wall to wall windows looking out onto the Pacific Ocean. I am a Hilton Diamond member and do not 'wow' easily, but this hotel wowed me many times with its location, service,... More

In town for business and didn't really get to experience the hotel. I arrived around 9 p.m., check in was painless and quick. Room was huge and the bed was very comfortable. Nice bathroom and shower. When I return to San Diego for vacation, this will be on my list. Overall a great experience.

Great service and perfect location to all that downtown San Diego offers. Across the street from the Convention Center, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District. Also a 5 minute drive to Coronado, San Diego Airport, and close proximity to the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. And let's not forget, it is ON the San Diego Harbor. Wonderful stay.

Truly, everything about the hotel was wonderful. The staff, restaurants, accommodations, location... everything was wonderful. We enjoyed our time! The only mark left on our trip was the parking bill. The cost to self-park (not even valet!) is exorbitant. Again, I want to rave about everything else and just be clear that this truly was the only downside.

I showed up at the front desk with a complicated, multi-part: it involved a stay that was split between two reservations, a request to consolidate rooms with another guest for the second half of my stay, a correction to my Hilton Honors account and an update to my contact information. Fully expecting a battle to ensue, I was instead greeted... More
