We were greeted with: Name? Not a 'welcome to the Hilton, how was your trip? Can I please have your name or booking number?" Just: NAME? Kind of Siberian welcome in sunny San Diego They advertise to be a none smoking hotel. We woke up with a fresh breeze of smoke coming through the balcony door from the neighboring room.... More

Very helpful staff, good food, close to airport, nice views. Easy access to restaurants, 3 mile loop along waterfront for jogging, and good parking. Staff made adjustments to accommodate additional event attendees with no fuss. I appreciate the helpfulness of staff, and will definitely hold another event at this venue.

Stayed here for one night after an evening flight into San Diego. A short cab ride from the airport. The hotel also has a complementary shuttle that can pick up and drop off to the airport. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The cooked breakfast was pretty good (not included with the room rate). Free wifi was... More

This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in! The staff are very pleasant, friendly & helpful. The airport shuttle runs from 5 am - 12 midnight, which is better than other San Diego hotels. And the views in every direction are marvellous.

The hotel was basically nice, but noisy. There seems to be a low level hum from the air conditioning in the rooms and in the hallways. Sound proofing was not as good as I'd expect. I could hear the elevator and the ice machine. It kept me awake. Bathroom was not fully clean - hairs in the sink and on... More

We paid extra to stay in a harbor view room and we go one with half of the balcony blocked with palm trees. Don't stay in rooms 527 and the one next to it (528 I think). It's a beautiful location across the bay from Naval base on Coronado island. We asked for a microwave because my daughter has allergies... More

I've been here a few times, and always choose this hotel if I can. Shuttle service from the airport is prompt. Staff is fantastic. The servers at breakfast could not have been nicer to me and other guests. Late dinner at the bar, and the bartender steered me to an option other than the one I chose. I appreciated that.... More

Someone should speak to Georgiana the waitress at breakfast. She was pushy about upgrading to the full breakfast, we said no to coffee, but she brought us 2 coffees. The next morning she was complaining to another employee about being tired, she was working too many days and then argued with the employee regarding his full-time/part-time status. He was focused...

This was my 5th or 6th stay at the hotel. I have always stayed at the front of the hotel facing the naval base, across the water. I had a few different experiences during my most recent (last?) visit. My largest beef is that the hotel's new vans that provide transportation to the airport create so much noise that they... More
