Lovely triangle-shaped hotel with signature concave sides and ornate architecture, reminiscent (to me, at least) of Chicago's Marina Towers and affording fantastic views of the North San Diego Bay, the marinas, the naval base and downtown. Lovely sunrises and sunsets.

Hotel's Favorite
Very nice stay. To start with the location: walking distance to the airport (and they offer free shuttle). If you rented a car (which I recommend for San Diego) then you are good. 10-15 min drive to Balboa Park, Little Italy, Old Town, Gaslamp Quarter and about 20-25 min drive

Thank you for your 5 star review regarding your recent stay with us! Located in the heart of San Diego we offer both the convenience of close proximity to the airport yet close enough to all of San Diego's great attractions. I am delighted that our staff took such great care of you and that we were able to enroll in our Hilton Honors program. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We had a great stay even though it was only for one night. Our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very spacious with a walk in shower, double vanity sinks and a large mirror. The view from our balcony overlooked the harbor where we sat enjoying an adult beverage

This Hilton was OK but I thought it was a little pricey for a hotel that was dated. The room was a little worn and could of used an update. The breakfast was good and our server Jennifer was excellent! Overall hotel staff was very good!

This hotel is very convenient to the San Diego airport. Further all rooms are going to have some sort of water view. That said this hotel needs a ton of maintenance. Paint is peeling in the guest room in multiple places. The mechanism that closes the door rubs on the ceiling.

We will have 2 cars mine and my husbands sine we are arriving separately, will we be charged $21 for each car?
Yes, you will. Since the property is so close to the airport, you could find an off-airport lot and leave one car there during your stay. You could probably find one in the $10-15 per night range. Good luck.

I found that the shuttle bus driver would take you anywhere nearby and drop you. Very helpful. I gave him $5-$10 depending on how many folks were with me. I'm sure he would drop you by the rental car return.

We have not had anything delivered to while we were there but I don't see why not. And I doubt they would charge for accepting a delivery. Call the hotel to check.

"Top floor with harbor view"
"stay away near vending/ice machine and elevators"
"Ask for a view of the water or of an outdoor garden. If you are very tall, ask if there is a room without a dropped ceiling in the entryway."
"Well-located for early morning flight out !"
"Top floor, right in the middle, overlooking the harbor."
$137 - $416 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
