The hotel is located next to Petco Field and the waterfront. The service was superior, and the meals within the conference were good. I wish I could have stayed longer and enjoyed this setting. I highly recommend the hotel for people who are vacationing in San Diego.

Pool staff and housekeeping are friendly, but the pool is public and some very rude people not from the hotel were cursing and making a fool out of themselves. We did not pay hundreds of dollars to share a pool with people who didn't pay a cent. Additionally, we were supposed to get $50 of credit per day, but they... More

We typically stay here as it is conveniently located. Rooms are small but adequate. The view, especially the city views, are excellent. Great place to watch the San Diego Pops fireworks display! Pool always has lots of children and caters to them with children's movies at night. The well-lit, one-sink bathrooms are very clean, with large showers (no tub). Especially... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel and got upgraded to a really big room with wonderful views of both down town, the bay and Coronado. Big modern hotel with "everything". One of the best breakfast we have eaten although it was a little bit crowded in the morning so you had to sit down and wait a couple of minutes. Nice... More

We stayed in this hotel in June and we cannot say enough good things about it! The hotel was centrally located, very clean and with really friendly staff. Our room was on the top floor which gave us an amazing view. The room was quite large and had everything you would need. The pool area looked fabulous but unfortunately we... More

I received good recommendation about this Hilton, especially its bay view. The amenities and service are first class. I came here to attend a meeting, but brought my adult family with me. Everyone had a favorable impression of this wonderful hotel.

Rooms are average size with a great view. Things were relatively clean. Cleaning staff was kind, other wait staff (hotel and restaurant) were rude. Wifi didn't work on tablets or phones (even though I paid premium), and no wifi was available on the 3rd floor conference spaces. Buffet breakfast at the Vela was a waste of money at $23.99 for...

This is a nice, huge hotel with spacious rooms and large meeting areas. The hotel common areas are well-appointed and a swanky lounge in the back is complete with fire pits and couches by the pool and bar area. The views from the Saphhire terrace of the water and Coronado Island are stunning, particularly at night. The hotel rooms are... More
