We stayed at the Hilton Carlsbad last week during our Spring Break vacation to Southern California. It was our first time staying at the resort and we absolutely loved it! As frequent travelers, we've stayed all over the world and this hotel really impressed both my husband and I. Our kids loved the hotel and heated saltwater pool and the restaurant. We requested an upgrade to a full ocean view suite and the hotel provided a complimentary upgrade. The suite was absolutely beautiful and included two sleeping areas, two bathrooms, a refrigerator, and a full balcony. It was LOVELY! The Chandlers restaurant had great food too. I have never written a review of a hotel but I had to write one about this hotel. We loved it and we will definitely be back but to stay even longer! Thank you Hilton.
