The service at this hotel makes the visit a real treat. From help changing rooms to being greeted with water bottles after a walk the staff at the Hilton Garden Inn really care about their guests. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Our college held interviews for one of our position recruitments at the Hilton Garden Inn San Diego Del Mar. Their customer service was top-notch from the catering and banquets staff to the front-desk staff and the maids servicing the rooms. Everyone was very courteous and accommodating. Our contact was catering sales manager Terri Miller who worked with us on all... More

We booked this hotel as a stop off on our way to Palm Springs - we did not want to drive after flying from the east. At first, we were worried that the hotel, being very close to I-5 would be noisy. We need not have worried, the hotel is separated by buildings from the highway and is blissfully quiet.... More

We've never stayed in a Hilton Garden Inn before and expected it to be old fashioned and shabby. This hotel was very surprising. It has a lively foyer and bar area. Coffee and cookies. Room was large and comfortable. Excellent fridge that really got things cool, and a very powerful and refreshing shower. Overall a pleasant surprise. We went into... More

My wife and I were looking for a hotel to stay while in town for a friends wedding in La Jolla. After some research, and reviews on this site we settled on this hotel. We found the nightly rate to be cheaper than a lot of the other hotels and the HGI also provided free parking. The hotels in La... More

We booked a room earlier this month for a weekend getaway and we were impressed! We had a wonderful stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing! However, - We didn't know about the adjustable feature of the beds so the bed was too firm for us to sleep in. Wish we had been informed before... More

This is a terrific hotel and I have stayed here before. I heard the people in the room next door come in rather late. I could not fall asleep because of the noise they made (normal talking). I never had this problem at this hotel before.

Had a great stay at this property last weekend, and wanted to share. The room was clean, quiet, and well maintained. Not only were the staff incredibly helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions in the area, they also gave me suggestions on some local beaches and attractions to take the kids.
