I've stayed here many times in my past (I was working for Hilton, developing the Hilton SD Bayfront at the time) and was pleased to find that they have maintained their quality of service. The staff was very helpful and my room was very comfortable. Also, the location allowed for easy access to the Convention Center and many of the... More

This hotel is very well located near all the attractions this area has to offer. We stayed for three nights and found it best to just leave the car in one of the convenient parking garages for $15 per day, you won't need it ! We stayed in room 227 which had a nice view and was quiet with a... More

Dear grandpadoc, Thanks for the 5-star review! And your insider tips for Trip Advisor readers are right-on: the rooms overlooking the nearby MLK park are some of the quieter rooms. The park is such a lovely place to relax, sun yourself, people-watch and doggie-watch! While it's not "officially" a dog park, it certainly has become a hot spot for the... More

Sleep here, but eat out of you can. There is nothing special about the food here. There are lots of good options in the area and all well worth exploring. We liked Lou & Mickey's as well as La Fiesta.

Quick weekend getaway for two nights. Check in was no problem, we checked in very early! The location is great because its not directly in the middle of the Gaslamp activities, but its close enough to have everything be convenient. Onsite restaurant is small but has some good drinks at the bar and lots of lounging areas for relaxing and... More

This hotel is very convenient to the airport, restaurants and tourist destinations. Omar at the front desk was very helpful with directions and Mike (concierge) was great with recommendations and directions as well. I read other reviews about the valet parking charge, however, it was super convenient to get our car whenever we needed it. The staff was very friendly... More

This hotel is located in the heart of San Diego, but not worth the stay. You are better off staying at the Bay Front Hilton property. Much more professional staff. They claimed to have French doors and a balcony. It was just a sliding door.

This hotel was to the standards I expected…excellent service, friendly staff, clean rooms. I was a bit shocked at the $45 for parking!!! and the $11 for internet. I realize all of the swankier hotels in the city cores charge a lot for parking, but $25 is about as expensive as I've seen it. And I'll never understand how the... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Room was not very clean and did not smell fresh. Hotel is in a great location for enjoying the gas lamp and water front area. Hotel lobby area nice and my room was quiet. Close to great restaurants and tourist activities. Also great location for business activities.
