Luxurious hotel, beautiful location with harbor view, great pool, excellent service. We had spacious rooms with the view on the harbor and bridge to Coronado. Great service, convenient parking, WiFi in the lobby. Very good breakfast buffet (by American standards), though the restaurant does not have sufficient capacity, so try to get there early to avoid long wait. There is... More

Traveled here on business and it was a very nice change of pace. The views of the marina from this hotel are fabulous. Quick walk to the Gaslamp District where there are tons of restaurants to choose from.

We stayed at the Hilton on a family trip in January. Our room was on a corner of the 16th floor, with a great view of Petco Park and the Gaslamp area on one side and the port train yards (which the kids loved) on the other. The room was top-notch, and the location was great. It was a breeze... More

The beds are comfortable and staff are extremely accommodating. There are options for dinning and while the Starbucks line can be long in the morning, they are quick. I was there for a conference and the location is great for events like that (Gaslamp district, Convention Centre). If you like to run, the bayfront walkway is excellent, and even at... More

You really can't beat the Hilton heavenly beds and pillows for a good nights sleep. The interior lobby of this hotel is large, open and airy and it is ideally located right beside the convention centre, connected by a unique pedestrian bridge to Petco Centre and the Gaslamp Quarter, right on the Bay. There are even several geocaches hidden within... More

This hotel is nice but extremely big. If you are a HH elite member the breakfast options are a little limited, Starbucks coupon for a coffee and one food item or the hotel buffet for ten dollars. If you have the option stay at the other Hilton across the street, a little smaller, full breakfast and bar.

Attended a conference in SaN Diego and the hotel is perfectly located next to the convention centre and a short walk from downtown. The breakfast was very well presented and everything was fresh and scrumptious. Unfortunately they don't have a minibar in the room, but bottled water is set out daily. Staff were friendly and the gym is satisfactory. They... More
