We stayed here for one night prior to a business conference. We were able to store our bags prior to check-in while we explored the city. In the afternoon, we were still waiting on our room (still prior to the standard 3pm check-in time) and the hotel let us head up to the pool while we waited. The room was... More

Dear Robert C, We greatly appreciate your patience while we prepared your room for you. If your room had been ready before 3:00 p.m., we certainly would have checked you in, but you chose wisely in killing time by exploring the Gaslamp Quarter and making use of our pool during this lovely summer weather. Our guests do enjoy our location... More

Wrong room in wrong location not what I reserved, tub would not drain, sink would not drain, bathroom supplies taken out and none replaced. Parking cost more than the cost to rent the full size car. Street noise terrible, view terrible.

Great location. Valet parking ridiculously expensive $47/night! Park at other locations near by... Good breakfast buffet selection, and friendly customer service, but requires some few touch-ups and renovation in the guest room....

Jordan H, Manager-On-Duty at Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, responded to this review

Dear parkreview, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We feel our parking rate of $47 is competitive in its pricing and conveys the value of having 24-hour access to amicable staff who ensure quick retrieval and the security of your car in our lock-down on-site garage. However, we will gladly recommend other privately-owned lots in the... More

This was the perfect location for my first stay in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. All of the hotel staff with whom we interacted were extremely accommodating and helpful. So many great restaurants and things to do close by!

Most impressive hotel but they want your wallet. You are too expensive period. With the best transportation system in the country stay somewhere else. Get real and get your room rates in line with other hotels.

I had a room with a wonderful view. At night when I was in for the night, I would stand at my window and look outside for a while enjoying the nightlife. The hotel is located in the middle of everything so I was able to walk anywhere I wanted to go. I loved the walks to the bay during... More
