We came to participate in a charity walk with friends. Staff was extremely nice and friendly, but it was very busy. Rooms comfortable but small. Area seemed safe. It says it's downtown but it's really like a mile away from main downtown area. I would come here again. Breakfast was good and coffee/tea/hot chocolate throughout the day.

The Hampton Inn is a great pre cruise hotel. It is within walking distance to the cruise ship terminal (depending on how much luggage you have). Be sure to try and book their cruise ship shuttle as soon as you arrive.( It was already booked as well as the waitlist when we arrived ) Their rooms were very nice, and...

I reviewed this hotel once before and noted the commuter train noise, since the tracks are directly behind the hotel. I decided to give it another shot. This time I chose Room 635, which is top floor and as close as I could get to the front of the hotel. I found that the noise of the train was not...

Nice enough hotel, great area, but as a Hilton Honors Gold Member I at least expected a room with a view or an upgrade. Instead I got to look at the pool and hear the screaming kids. Bah! The room was nice, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Reading all the other reviews about noise, I guess I...

I had a delayed flight from the east coast. When I arrived at the hotel I was notified that my room had been given away. At 4 am I was forced to go to another hotel and get a few hours sleep. I then had to be back at the Hampton Inn to check in at 12.

The location is great - close to the bay, gaslamp, etc. The room was fairly clean. The phone in the room was not working so I had to go down to the lobby when I needed something. The front lobby staff kindly gave me a little compensation for it, which was a nice gesture. But, one morning when we were...

The hotel is well located, just in front of the waterfront park, walk away from USS Midway and 5 min from Gaslamp Quarter by car. There is a parking lot just under the building. Breakfast is a little bit confused, but worth well. The biggest issue is a railroad just behind the hotel, in the left corner. It is impossible...
