This hotel is perfect for train lovers because it feels as if the trains are actually traveling through your room. They run 24 hours per day. I ended up downloading a 'white noise' app at about 1:30 am on my first night and cranked the volume. Staff and room quality are good and location is excellent but pack your ear... More

Decided to stay at this hotel instead of large convention site near San Diego Convention Center and this was exactly the right choice. First, the location is excellent - about a 20 minute walk to the major convention hotels and convention center. The person who checked me in also informed me that there was a trolley behind the hotel that... More

This hotel was extremely clean, the staff was courteous and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay again. The complimentary shuttle to the airport and Balboa Park was an unexpected treat. The trolley station was conveniently close.

Our family routinely stays here during the ArtWalk weekend in Little Italy each April. Service is always good and both the rooms and common areas are nicely furnished. Conveniently located near a Trolley stop and within walking distance of the Star of India and USS Midway.

We needed a spur of the moment room on a Wednesday night, we called Hampton Downtown SD and reserved two rooms. At first they were not able to get us an ADA room, once we showed up to check in they worked some magic and got us an ADA room on the second floor. The staff went above and beyond... More

The front desk was exceptional service and our Hispanic shuttle driver delayed her lunch and dinner break 3 times to accommodate us! Loved the orange water in the lobby at all times. The tv remote quit working and it was replaced immediently. Very close walk to to trolley and Amtrak station. Our experience was exceptional for a medium priced room.

We stayed here again this year because of the location and we were using rewards. The check in was a little long because we had multiple reservations per room because of the way we did the rewards. Thankfully Mariela stepped up and helped out. Both of our rooms were perfectly located near the front of the building so we did... More

The location is perfect- walking distance to the waterfront park and seaport village. The highway noise can be a little loud, but the view facing the water was great. The elevators need to be updated- they are super slow and scary because it bounces heavily. The staff were all very friendly and did their job well. The dining room staff... More
