“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent a couple of nights here when visiting attractions in San Diego. It's 5 min off the freeway and around 10 min to La Jolla and 25 min to San Diego Zoo which we also visited. The accommodations, public areas and service are top notch, with the whole place having a real upscale and stylish feel to it. The swimming pool area is also really good with modern and well maintained sun beds and gazebos readily available. We ate out each night (you have to drive as there isn't a restaurant within walking distance) although there is an on-site restaurant and bar. Wasted on us, as we're non-golfers, there is a golf course to the rear of the hotel. If you get a room facing the ocean, you'll have the golf course in the fore front with the ocean behind - very pleasant. Our room had 2 queen sized beds as well as a writing desk area and a lounger chair, so everything we needed. We booked through hotels.com and good a good rate which included free parking ($25 per night otherwise) and free buffet breakfast ($20 per person otherwise). The breakfast was good with a wide variety of cereals, fruit, juices, toast etc. as well as hot items - eggs, bacon, sausage and made to order omelettes. We had a small plumbing problem with our room which when reported was fixed very quickly and they gave us free internet access in our room (without asking) which was a fantastic gesture. The hotel does have free wifi in the lobby area in any case, but normally wifi in your room is an extra cost unless you have it included as part of a special bundle rate or are an Honours Club member (which we weren't). We can recommend this hotel to others without hesitation.

Our family of 3 visited this hotel in August of 2014. My husband was pleasantly surprised he was able to get a tee time to golf, I had no idea how hard it was to secure a tee time when I made our hotel reservation last minute. He golfed during the 'twilight' time and it was very reasonable.

The room was okay, even though it was a slight upgrade (since we are diamond members), it wasn't anything spectacular, but it was clean and the beds were very comfy. The view was of a courtyard area and a little bit of the golf course. My husband travels a lot for work and he was even more disapointed in the room since he is used to being upgraded.

The bathroom had no exhaust fan, which is disgusting. I mean, come on....multiple people using the bathroom and taking hot showers with no exhaust fan ?!?!

I got absolutely no cell phone service in our room, service was very spotty, I tried multiple times to call out with my cell phone and the calls dropped every time.

I loved the sliding glass door and 2 chairs where we could sit outside on the balcony. The pool and spa area was very nice.

The restaurant was overpriced...we went there for a late dinner after swimming. I ended up asking if they had a menu with sandwiches because nothing sounded good off the dinner menu.

The restaurant and manager were WONDERFUL with our special requests. Our daughter has a severe peanut/nut allergy and they were great. Cooking her food special to ensure no cross contamination and also again at breakfast. They cooked her food all in the back instead of getting it off the breakfast bar to ensure her safety.

I would HIGHLY recommend that the management remove the entire container of peanut butter on the breakfast bar and replace it with the small individual serving sizes of peanut butter (2 tbls I believe).
With them having a huge open container of peanut butter on the breakfast bar, it cross contaminates EVERYTHING up there. (fruit, eggs, meat, etc) For someone allergic to nuts, this is a nightmare.
All it takes is someones peanut butter to end up on something else and you have someone going into Anaphylactic shock and possibly dying.

We drove up to the beach at Torrey pines park. It was $12 to park and was a very nice beach.

We would definitely return.

Recently my girlfriend and I took a week long vacation at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines. Everything from the ambiance to the comfort was top notch. One aspect that really stood out was the great service. We needed some general assistance a few times during our stay and Jodi at the front desk was amazing. Not only did she kindly meet all of our needs, but she went above and beyond our high expectations. We sincerely appreciated her excellence!

We stayed as a family on the tail end of our vacation. Location was fantastic and hotel was very good. Great view of ocean from property and very close to Torrey Pines Golf Course. Used the pool and the tennis courts - both fun for the kids. Rooms were very nice - comfortable with nice bathroom. Beds were good, but not anything special. Overall would recommend this hotel due to location and to value for the money

Had a great time with our family, staff were great tour hides for fun family day trips. Property has everything including great pool and fireplaces at night on patio with dessert service. Great value right next to the lodge at Torrey Pines which does not compare to the Hilton for service or accommodations! We stayed at both and sorry we didn't book more nights at the Hilton.

We arrived at this hotel with high expectations (after looking at other trip adviser reviews for the hotel) and for the most part we were not disappointed the room was clean, the beds where comfy and the pool was very pleasant. However yesterday we decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant (the grill) and we where very disappointed not with the food but the service, our server was rude and acted like she did not want to be where she was, she was rushing us to order and she gave us the cheque when we where still eating desert without us asking for it. As a diamond H Honours member this is certainly not the service you expect. However apart from dinner last night we had a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel for anyone in the La Jolla area
