“Our Stay in San Diego”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

My wife and I visited our daughter and her boyfriend in San Diego recently. We stayed at the Hilton Resort and Spa. The accommodations were very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the shuttle to take you to the airport doesn't begin until 9 AM which is not helpful if you are flying to the east coast (as we were) since our flight left at 9:28 AM.

The grounds, the Pool, the restaurant, the people, (Carol @ breakfast!!!) the bay....Heaven!! This is a fantastic hotel close to everything in San Diego, I would highly recommend. Our patio walked right out to cabanas and faced the sand and bay. The pool area was really nice. When we went for a walk I noticed some people had their own personal fire pit on their patio. Every room looked special

WE often leave the hustle of LA to go relax in this hotel..
Palm trees everywhere, pool with cabanas, firepits at night to watch the fireworks from seaworld every night...
Fun for everyone (they have a rental unit for kayak, boats, seadoos, segways, bikes, etc)
Close enough to thebay you can touch the sand and evrything is nice and modern...
Overall it's a bit like going to hawaii without the extra flying time...
We love it!

We came here the night of our wedding and spent two nights and begged my husband to stay another night. The room was amazing. Our patio walked right out to cabanas and faced the sand and bay. The pool area was really nice. When we went for a walk I noticed some people had their own personal fire pit on their patio, I was really jealous, I didn't think it could get any better than this. It was so peaceful and friendly, just what we needed. I really felt like a queen here. Amanda was really sweet and answered any of my questions and Samantha Delgado was a pleasure at check out. I can't wait to come back! Thank you everyone for being apart of our magical getaway!

Thanks for choosing our Hilton Resort for your special occasion and for taking the time to reach out with such thoughtful words for us. It's an honor to have been able to share in this experience with you, and we hope to share many anniversaries with you in the years to come. Our personal firepits certainly lend a magical touch to evenings on the waterfront, and we look forward to sharing these and many more of our amenities with you in travels to come. Thanks so much for your time and review, and congratulations on your wedding!

I used to stay at the same hotel for the 15 years I have been traveling to the San Diego area and for this particular trip it happened to be sold out so I gave a resort a whirl. All of the staff was unbelievably helpful from the housekeeper to the manager. I even had to unexpectedly extend my stay and they were remarkably accommodating and generous about it. And I understand how great an inconvenience that can be.

Room Tip: They have rooms with fire pits on the patio and they sell darling smores kits to go with them in the...

Fantastic stay! The grounds are not new modern, but they are San Diego villa style. Very comfortable with good size rooms. Pricey but worth it. We had a beautiful westerly view of the Mission Bay and you are right at the beach/bay. The restaurant's chef prepared excellent food. The Olive bar has happy hour at 4pm. When we arrived at 3:50pm they informed us of happy hour. So we waited in the bar until 4pm. Breakfast was an amazing eggs benedict with crab cake instead of ham. I highly recommend it. Staff was exceptional from valet to front desk to the dinning and bar staff- friendly, efficient, prompt and courteous. I will be returning soon for a staycation. As we are from San Diego. Thanks for a fantastic experience.

Just back from a 5 day stay at the Hilton. We were checked in quickly and then allowed to make a room switch as our back patio faced the front hotel parking lot. The room itself was fine...adequate space with great beds and soft pillows, and a small refrigerator. The food at the restaurant is very good and the pool is also nice, featuring several cabanas and food and beverage service.
The major downside of this hotel is that there is nothing walkable close by. I spent more cab fares and shuttle fees that week than on my airline ticket. The hotel does provide a wonderful shuttle (for a fee) and the valet and drivers are extremely helpful. If you are here to sight see, I would definitely recommend renting a car at the airport.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a patio facing the bay
