All of the staff were excellent, starting with Vanessa who checked us in. She got us in an amazing room with exceptional views (Hilton Honors) and provided a walking map with restaurants, etc. We enjoyed a great breakfast on property, the Fox Sports Grill for beverages, and the Starbucks in the morning. Walked to gaslamp and Seaport Village. Great weather... More

It does appear to more adult orientated, but it very much kid-friendly. I took my 3 kids and they had so much fun. I want to plan another stay with just me and my husband.The bars and pool side lounge looked amazing. Since it was just me and the kids this time, I did not get to sample of the... More

We wanted to do a family weekend in San Diego, and we chose this location because the rate that was $100 less than other similar hotels for the same night and the pool seemed more family oriented. I went into it maybe expecting to see a reason why it was cheaper, but I couldn't find any. Our choice did not... More

Great location for waking to gas lamp district. Clean and quiet rooms! Claudia in luggage delivery was amazing with my kids. She went above and beyond. Cons were: Parking costs and the insanely crowded pool. Anyone (non-hotel guests) can use the pool if they pay the $32 parking fee. Made for an unsafe and unenjoyable swimming experience.

This review is for the spa only as I did not stay at the hotel. I consider myself a spa aficionado. Been to spas all over the world so I know what to expect. My visit to Aquazul got off to a rocky start with check-in as the male employee seemed amateurish and didn't present a welcoming demeanor. I don't... More

It's a very nice hotel, but it is so big and busy that it has a Vegas hotel feel to it (lots of people coming and going). The room was fine and the view was great, but the add-ons were crazy expensive - I just felt ripped off. - Valet parking - $47 - Self park - $32 - Internet... More
