The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean and close to entertainment venues. Check in was smooth and effortless. I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends. Upon check in the warm cookie was a nice touch!

We made a quick jaunt to San Diego for just an overnight. The hotel was nice, it was clean, fresh towels...even by the pool. The service was great, and the view was great! Our room overlooked the pool, but was also able to see forever, the Navy ship was very close, we could have walked, but we drove because we... More

We stayed at this hotel as we wanted to be the convention center. I was originally going to stay at the Four points across the street but as a Hilton Diamond member I figured for a few extra dollars I would get a hot breakfast. The hotel is a bit edgy and the wifi is very slow.

we arrived with nine people for four rooms with reservations made two months prior to travel. The rooms were not ready, they had us all on different floors, we had four children with us, they told me the rooms would be ready within 30-45 minutes, this was at 3:00 and at 7:30 I had to get a bit angry with...

our room was never serviced, we had to call twice to have toilet paper delivered to our room and our shower had a constant drip drip drip....while laying out at the pool the service man used a loud high pressure washer to clean the area...so annoying to hear that noise for 2 hours trying to relax

Just a few blocks from Little Italy, and right at the Mercato on Saturdays places the fourth star securely for my rating. The trolley station is only another block away. The hotel is about a $15/15-minute cab ride from the airport. Although it lists a shuttle van, we never saw it. After waiting an hour and three phone calls, each... More

I travelled to San Diego for a 4-day business trip and this was the only Hilton Brand hotel available at the government per diem rate. The hotel is convenient to both the airport and San Diego Naval Base which was where I was working. I had read warnings about the parking garage and they were dead on. The ramps are... More

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. No problems with anything! The rooms were spectacular: great view, clean, comfortable, roomy.... It was located walking distance to Balboa Park. The staff was great and made everything simple, restful and enjoyable. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

The Group Sales and Catering Staff in particular Mario and Amy catered to our every need. It was flawless. However, I do have a complaint. We had a group of 100 attending our function. We had seminars on Friday that allowed for a 1 hour lunch. Because it was only 1 hour the attendees did not have time to go... More
