This was a great hotel to stay in. The views are fantastic and everyone there was very helpful. With it being a business trip, there were a lot of things to do when I finished up work. I will be staying here on my next trip to San Diego!

I stayed here for a work conference and enjoyed the hotel. The amenities were nice, but I was not able to enjoy all of them. I would certainly stay here again if given the chance. The smell of the room could have been fresher, but overall it was a great experience.

We paid a little more for a bay view rather than the "industrial view", and I'm glad we did. The view over the bay and towards Coronado island was lovely and we could see the gaslamp district, and quite a few other things from the 20th floor. The room was a bit grey and dull and not particularly big, it... More

Stayed for a convention - the room needed updating and didn't have basics like a makeup mirror. Bath was dingy and fixtures circa stone age. Carpet dirty. Food absolutely terrible for room service and sports bar/restaurant on the ground floor. Service terrible. Best part is the scenery around the hotel but, otherwise, stay somewhere else (plenty of options).

Stayed at this property while in San Diego for a conference being held at the same hotel. I had a lovely view of the Coronado bridge and parts of downtown San Diego. Hotel is a close taxi ride from the airport (less than $20) and staff was friendly and attentive. Room was very nice and practically soundproof (see below). Food... More

Checked in for a long weekend in April for a business conference next door at the Convention Center. Certainly the location couldn't be more convenient for such a business trip; the Gaslamp area is also right across the pedestrian bridge so indeed the hotel is well-located in downtown San Diego. We got a high floor corner room which did have... More

The hotel was bright and clean and beautiful. I felt like I had really arrived in California as soon as I walked in the door. It was a great location for the conference I was attending. It's about a ten minute walk to shops and restaurants, so it's not right in the heart of the city. This means it's nice... More

This is a top notch Hilton. As a Diamond member I was given great service by the Concierge Karin. On a night when every restaurant in town was full, she picked up the phone and call a great one telling them she had Diamond member who needed a table. Done!
