“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a beautiful hotel. You can see the beach from your room (if you squint). It backs up to a golf course. The weather is beautiful, with a cool breeze flowing off the Pacific. Even though it is in hot San Diego, the weather is about 80 degrees. The hotel is clean and well kept. The pool is beautiful and the staff helpful.

We went for a wedding celebration, staying several nights. Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. And the venue for the wedding was amazing! Only negative comments I have are regarding the washroom; shower head size and water pressure are inadequate for how large and beautiful the shower itself is, and the cleanliness (or lack of) of the hair dryer.

Great place to relax, do some hiking to go to beach, play golf, or just relax in the pool. But you need to drive to eat out, since it is surrounded only by medical labs and hospitals. Our room faced the pool, golf course, and the Pacific! As a gold member, there is free continental breakfast. You have to add $7 for full breakfast. Parking is $25/day so it's like paying for another day in our stay. They had a business reception by the pool one night which played loud music, but abruptly stopped at 9 pm. The coast was always cloudy while we were there. Eventhough it was hot and clear inland, it got foggy and cloudy as we drove in to Torrey Pines.

Great location, great weather, amazing views of the golf course and the ocean. Conveniently located in La Jolla to shopping and food. Self parking was difficult at times during the weekend due to the increased number of patrons. A lot of activities close to the hotel and very good recommendations for food, recreation, and entertainment.

Great view and amenities. Service was excellent. Unfortunately, our room was not ready until after 17:00, and our neighbor was quite noisy at 3:00 am in the morning. We found out that there were four wedding parties happening on that weekend. Perhaps that has something to do with our experience.

I don't like Hiltons in general, but that's a rant for another day. This hotel was nice despite being a Hilton. The basic rooms were very generously sized, with a small balcony. The rooms were nice and quiet and the bedding comfortable, so I slept well. It looks like the rooms were recently refreshed, with big flat screen TVs and a functional work area; overall it was a comfortable stay.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's looking over the Torrey Pines golf course, and you're within walking distance of the stunning views from the state preserve. It's relaxing to see such nice scenery out your window. If you're in town for business, you also have easy access to major freeways and all the companies in the La Jolla/UTC area. If you're driving though, be prepared to pay a high price for parking -- $25/ night I think.

If you don't like staying in hotels where there are a lot of conference attendees, then this isn't the place for you; there are seemingly always conferences here.

With my friend's diamond status, we had vouchers to redeem at the lobby Starbucks, which was nice. Well the coffee was good, but the food was not. Choices were limited, and the woman behind the counter totally destroyed the breakfast sandwich I ordered by nuking the hell out of it. Despite this, service was good overall. It felt like the staff were very scripted and not genuine (e.g. repeating three times that we had an upgraded room -- "take the elevators on the left to your upgraded room"), but at least they made an effort.

The hotel is far from perfect, but with the convenient location and beautiful views, I would consider staying here again.

The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines is a big convention type hotel, but still very nice. Staff was very friendly. One complaint. The balcony had a soda bottle with water and cigarette butts in it. Clearly had not been cleaned. However, the room was nice and the amenities (lotion, shampoo, etc.) were lovely.
