The hotel was nice and people were friendly but the A/C unit in the room was very loud which made it very hard to sleep. Not sure I would stay here again for the money. I am an Honors members and really like Hilton properties but this one fell a little short.

This hotel is an utter disappointment starting with their... PARKING. Do not expect any Self-Parking for guests here at this hotel. The only available parking is either a metered street parking or a whopping $42 dollar valet. Each guest would have to factor this in when they pay for the room. So in effect, the price is actually = ADVERTISED... More

Parking costs $42 per day, yes that's $42 PER DAY. You have no choice. The air conditioning for the rooms on the upper floors is totally inadequate. I left the AC on high for 3 days and it dropped the temperature 3 degrees.

This is a centrally located hotel close to many attractions such as gas lamp, little italy and old town. Spacious suite, friendly staff and sea view were all positives. Breakfast buffet was a disappointment with long queue and limited options. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we would definitely stay there again but will go for room only rate as... More

My family and I enjoyed our stay in one of the nicest hotels Embassy Suites (San Diego) staff was super helpful and polite especially valet service (Serdar D.) helped us a lot with directions and luggage, they also provide complimentary bottles of water. Great and beautiful experience! I would recommend to visit this place.

Five stars for the best parking valet service in town, in particular graceful Mariana who is always ready to provide excellent service plus guide the cars in and out of a very tight space all with a beautiful smile.

This hotel is in the middle of the action!! Bay on one side and Gas Lamp district on the other. Never mind the extremely tight entryway, interesting bystanders, slow check-in/check-out, and outdated interior. The rooms are massive in size, but need a refresher. Rooms are noisy due to being in the middle of the action.

cherry7up, I am glad that you enjoyed our location. All of our guests love to walk to all of the great near by downtown attractions in San Diego's perfect weather. Our rooms are spacious and they have undergone some enhancements during our $8.5 million dollar renovation that ended just this past February. We hope that you will come back and... More

Mario K, thank you for review. I was disappointed to read that you did not notice the many upgrades recently done to our hotel that include the lobby, atrium, guest room corridors, as well as enhancements to the guest rooms. While our valet area is very busy the loading dock where deliveries are made is quite a distance from the... More

My husband and kids really enjoy the breakfast and happy hour that Embassy Suites offers. So, they were happy with this hotel. The location is convenient for walks along the water and downtown which I enjoyed. The bay view from our room was amazing. Seeing the Coronado bridge and boats sailing by was very enjoyable. The hotel was booked during... More

Mindi B, thanks for your feedback. You certainly cannot blame everyone for wanting to be in San Diego in the summer time. It's always 72 degrees and sunny. That is why they call us "America's Finest City". Certainly you saw this from the view from your room. Glad you enjoyed it. We understand that not everyone wants to wait for... More
