We arrived off a two week cruise on the only day in the last year that it rained (poured) in California. We are Hilton Honors Diamond and we were exhausted with an exhausted baby. We also had not gotten the rental car yet. The front desk staff were very brusk. My husband asked if they possibly had a room available.... More

Annie72, thank you for your review and your comments. As you can see from the many 4-5 star reviews and the comments about our team that this is certainly an isolated occurrence that I will definitely look into. Our HH guests are very important to us.

Booked at last minute. Got a discounted rate with a Bay view. Between the free cocktails and made to order breakfast, we came out ahead. Room very clean and well appointed. Great location by the USS Midway. Bought a day pass on public transportation and saw the entire city in a day.

Amoomba, I can hear the excitement in your review about how much you enjoyed your visit. Who can say anything bad about having a great view of the San Diego bay from your spacious suite and free nightly cocktails. Sounds pretty good to me too. I hope that you got to enjoy our cooked to order breakfast or some donuts... More

While I already have accommodations reserved along Pacific Beach, I thought I might compare rates at a different location, and maybe change my plans. Being more centrally located appealed to me, so I called this Embassy Suites to see what rooms were available. I was offered a corner bay-view suite for less than the rate at my other hotel. That...

Great location near the waterfront and within a mile of many restaurants. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Bed was very comfortable and air conditioning worked extremely well. Free breakfast was always well prepared. High daily room rate and very high taxes made the value questionable. Due to the high rate, the internet should have been free.

Not only are we walking distance from many of San Diego's great restaurants, we also hope that you got to enjoy our very own Pacific Fish Kitchen.

Great place to stay. Clean rooms. Great views. Close to everything. Having to wait for our vehicle every time we wanted to go off property was a bit of a challenge. Doesn't warrant having to pay to park and wait.

Doug G, thanks for the five star review. We are glad that you were able to enjoy our hotel and San Diego before college started. We hope that you got to enjoy Sea Port Village right across the street from the hotel as well as the U.S.S. Midway. With all of the great San Diego weather all year round, walking... More

The hotel quality and amenities were excellent. The restaurant as well as the happy hour foods were the best. The employees were very friendly. The room as well as the Hotel were clean and sanitary. They helped me during an emergency rush to get ready for meeting. I enjoyed my stay.

Location is perfect. Parking is a little expensive but in the future you will realize you do not even need a car booking at this hotel because the trolley is so near and taxis are everywhere.
