Recently attended a wedding here and a lot of the guest stayed in the hotel (same venue as the reception). It's so nice to look out your window and watch the boats in the harbor as we did. The balcony's were comfortable to sit and enjoy an early morning coffee/tea before heading out to walk along the water's edge. The... More

Hotel staff was great, and helpful. The assistant manager, Matt, personally loan me his belt for a wedding and wasn't able to find one quick enough as I forgot to pack it. However, the elevators at this Hilton were a constant source of complaint during our stay. For having three elevators in a nine story building, it was surprising how... More

The view of the Harbor was gorgeous. The outside front of the hotel could use a little sweeping. Overall stay was very nice and relaxing. The view of the Harbor says it all. It was a very pleasant stay after all.

Very good hotel for its location and service. Lobby has been renovated to give an updated appearance, which works well. Have been going here for several years. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only had one negative comment: spotty, filmy-looking dinner plates which reported back through survey.

A wonderful hotel on a small island near the San Diego airport. Close to everything. All rooms have a small balcony. In my opinion, the bay view rooms have a far superior view than the marina view rooms. Bay front views include the bridge, downtown , the naval air station and incoming/outgoing ships. Restaurant on site and next door. Coffee... More

Nice location - rooms either look over marina or waterfront. Check-in staff were lovely but elevator wouldn't stop at our floor (this only happened once) as the button got stuck. Once off the elevator REALLY weird smell in the corridor masked with some kind of cleaner - one of those stick in the back of your throat smells but once... More

Was pleasantly surprised with this property. I expected an old, 80s airport hotel but the carpets are clean and room decor was up to date. I was a bit bummed to be a HHonors Silver member (with 15 Hilton stays this year) and get put in the second floor room with a view of the HVAC plant, which was disappointing... More

We stayed at the Hilton Harbor Island four 4 days over the 4th of July holiday. We enjoyed it very much. We had a deluxe room, bay front, high floor. Our purpose for the trip was to have a front row seat for the "Big Bay Boom" fireworks show. Boy did we. It was the absolute perfect place to watch... More

Great location, service, and amenities. The design of this hotel is ideal from the position of the balconies to the location of the elevator and amenities. After being in the LA area, going to San Diego and ending our trip with a stay at this hotel was a great way to end our vacation.
