We stayed at the Hilton for 4 days while in town for a conference. This is the second time we've stayed at this facility although the first time it was a "Hampton Inn." The location is VERY convenient for restaurants, parks, shopping, and the baseball stadium. I felt safe day and night and loved having so much variety within walking... More

This hotels bread and butter is trade show business. The location is great since you are already in the gas lamp district so restaurants and night life are all around you. It is also very close to the baseball stadium so it pays to be aware of when event attendees are coming and going so you aren't. Epic traffic jams.... More

EZHawk, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. Sage advice on downtown traffic, there. But thankfully, as you point out, we're a short walk from PetCo Park, the Gaslamp Quarter's nightlife, and many other uniquely San Diego experiences! We enjoy a prime location here in Downtown San Diego, and it sounds as though you made use of it, as... More

If you are told you are in the Lofts- ask for a room change immediately unless you are an extremely sound sleeper. The noise levels from the street below from just average dining conversations to parade like cheering from the bar goers was heard late in the night on all 5 nights of the stay. In addition there was a... More

865judyg, Thank you so much for giving us a good rating, but it sounds as though we could have done more to score a perfect review from you. While we consider the Lofts on 5th Avenue rooms to be some of our premium, exclusive rooms, they do hold views of Gaslamp Quarter's 5th Avenue. Great for weekend getaway, but perhaps... More

The location was AWESOME - right across the convention center. The rooms were clean and everything functioned well. Rooms were well taken care of daily. The restaurant in the lobby is actually really good! Parking - do not do valet parking here for $45. There are tons of parking lots nearby (one block away even) for $10/15 dollars for 12... More

Staff at the hotel were very helpful, and the hotel was in great shape. My only complaint was the parking was 45.00 a night, there are no other options for the hotel so they get you with the parking fee, on top of all the tourism fee's. If you are going to San Diego and don't need a car this... More

Dear Tom M, Thank you so much for your feedback regarding our hotel. We just completed our renovations this year. We're pleased you enjoyed the results, and that you found our staff helpful. Our competitively-priced valet does provide an on-site, secure, and readily accessible parking option, but our staff can always recommend alternatives if so desired. However, as you said,... More

I just spent six nights at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter for a conference. My room was quite large, featuring a king-sized bed, an "easy" chair and ottoman, a mini-fridge, a beverage area, a small foyer area, and a decent-sized bathroom. There were plenty of power outlets for all of my recharging needs. The window was large with a... More

Stayed here on points on a Saturday night. They only have valet parking and its $45. Some of the lots close by were cheaper. Check in was very fast. Reserved a corner room online, and it wasn't available when i checked in. The room was on the top floor. Bed skirt was badly stained/marked. Balcony was very dirty. The room... More

We apologize that you found your stay with us unsatisfactory, and that the room you originally requested proved unavailable when you arrived at the hotel. Our staff tries their hardest to meet our guests' needs and exceed their expectations when selecting rooms (especially if it is an alternative to one you requested). It sounds as though we could have done... More

I stayed here for a week during a conference in July 2015. It's a nice hotel with a super convenient location. I loved being just across the street from the San Diego Convention Center.
