The lobby is pretty nice. The front desk staff were really nice. The rooms were pretty standard hotel rooms. My issue was the smell. If the drain from the bathtub wasn't closed a bad sewer smell filled the room. If I kept the drain closed and the bathroom door closed then it was less. But still not a great thing.

Typical convention center hotel - overpriced and not well maintained, but super convenient. Positive: + My room was very quiet, despite being on the 2nd floor and tram/train tracks running in front of the building. Very little street/Gaslamp revelry noise. + Air-con was silent for me (but a co-worker said hers was loud so your mileage may vary) + Location... More

In town for work and stayed a couple of extra days to see San Diego. The weather was perfect and had a great time. The work group booked the hotel, but the meeting planner did a great job with the location. Only a few miles from the airport, used a car service to get to the hotel. I had a... More

The location can’t be beat!! However we have found that we prefer to eat at other locations because the dining room leaves something to be desired. (There is a great place for breakfast right next door). In the past we enjoyed the jacuzzi but were disappointed to find it has been removed from the pool area. With that said with... More

Beautiful water view, clean, courteous staff, great location....walking distance to Gaslamp. If you are looking for convenience and comfort, this is a great choice. We also had a delicious breakfast buffet. Not cheap but tasty!

We really enjoyed our stay last weekend. All of the staff was pleasant from the front desk to the valet guys. The room was clean and it was nice being able to pick our room through the online checkin. The worst thing I can say is that the parking is outrageous at $42/night. They have no option for self-parking. We... More

The location is in the heart of the Gas Lamp district and the lobby is nice. I found the staff helpful and friendly as well. My issue is that the guest rooms are on the smaller side and our bathroom tub/shower features were very dated.

The Hilton Gaslamp was the perfect hotel for our group meeting of 40 people. The location, in the Gaslamp Quarter, is ideal. The size is perfect: spacious yet compact to make movement between meeting rooms and meals ideal. The added access to The Terrace during meals and break time really added to the pleasure since everyone could get fresh air... More

Great location if you want to walk around gas lamp.The hotel is right beside the rails and across the street is the convention center. Walking distance to the harbor area.

Dear Daniel K, Thank you for your feedback after your recent stay. I am so sorry that your stay was less than satisfactory. It appears we failed to deliver the level of cleanliness that you should expect at a Hilton. I apologize that this happened.
