The hotel was extremely helpful, and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Our group was able to hang out in the bar area at night and in the restaurant at breakfast. The only warning I would put out would be the parking structure is a little tight.

Picked this hotel due to closeness to zoo, Balboa Park and Midway Museum. Hotel was clean, staff was very friendly, helpful. Had two problems - 1) A/C when out in room at 10pm - staff worked quickly to fix within an hour, also gave us a free movie ticket. Casually commented to reception staff that we had had a/c problems... More

The hotel seems to be a bit dated. The room is ok with a little balcony, kind of old and not too spacious. The staffs are just normal. Walking distance to italian town. Definitely gonna stay in mission valley or near la jolla next time.

This is an unusually tricky review. Tricky because it's a nice hotel but there are a lot of buts. The hotel is clean and has a modern feel. Room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. I'm confused by the negative reviews on the rooms. Maybe the hhonors floors (I was on one) have been renovated and others have not. The thing... More

The hotel itself was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to be helpful - like always giving you those yummy cookies whenever you asked. We ate in the restaurant every morning. Some of the food was just OK, but the cooked to order omelets were very large and very good. They also have a happy hour where the... More

Total average stay, not impressed. I thought as hosting an event the staff wold come and check on the event and make sure we were okay, but that did not happen and when 1 of our event guests did not show up, there was not a refund on the pre-paid room.

This hotel sits over looking the bay- certain balcony rooms.. However, the staff is the best you will ever find!!! Upon check in, all smiles & the keys are ready in an instant. This is part of the Hilton family so you can use your HHonors. Pickup service from San Diego Airport.. Of course you receive that wonderful Double Tree... More

If you only care about location this is the hotel for you. But the hotel is in need of a remodel top to bottom. During our arrival we were instructed to park across the street in the public parking as the parking is too tight for a midsize SUV.

This hotel is about 12 to 15 blocks from the convention center, but it is prices competitively. I stayed for 4 nights and couldn't be happier. While the hotel has been around (it's old) the rooms are very clean and the staff are great and responsive. There isn't much around by way of restaurants or stores - you need to... More
