“Our Favorite Place to Stay!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Our favorite hotel to stay when visiting friends and Seaworld. Great location!!! Loved the food and relaxing beach side atmosphere. The staff is friendly and provide excellent service. Rooms are clean and comfortable and it seems everyone is happy doing their job. Very pleasant stay!

Thank you for maintaining your high standards! We love the Hilton!!!

I was attending a conference at the hotel, and was not an overnight guest. During a very busy Happy Hour at the Olive Bar on Sunday, April 28, the cocktail waitress, Nadia, was outstanding; very efficient and very gracious, even though she was swamped. Rashid is an excellent waiter, very attentive. Laurent, the manager, was always around, helping serve food, clear tables and keeping an eye on the work flow. Kudos to an outstanding staff and a very well managed bar and restaurant. (and the happy hour is a great bargain!)

I booked my trip with Hotwire, as I have never been to San Diego, and was simply looking for a nice place on the Ocean to relax for a long weekend. Once I arrived, I asked about an upgrade, as I mistakenly booked a room with 2 queen beds, instead of 1 king... All my fault.

Amanda at the front desk was extremely pleasant to speak to and upgraded me to a villa for a very reasonable fee. She obviously noticed that I was with my girlfriend for a romantic weekend, and surprised me with a bottle of Champagne in my room. These are the things that I will remember and that turn a good vacation into a great one.

The room was gorgeous, clean, and right on the water. It exceeded all of my expectations. The pleasant staff, from the valet attendant to Amanda at the front desk deserve accolades for making their customers happy, just by being nice.

I would stay here again in a heart beat, and I will be recommending it to anyone who wants to stay in Mission Bay.

Room Tip: the villas on the water are worth the surcharge.

I did not sleep here but I worked an event on location. Beautiful fire place, pool area etc to enjoy the outdoors. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a relatively far drive from downtown, but beautiful. The atmosphere was awesome.

The rooms were nice and clean, but everything cost a little extra. There was no free internet access, nor complementary breakfast. The prices for meals were very pricey. The hotel staff was friendly. The pool and the jacuzzis were amazing. The spa was nice, but again, expensive. Overall it was a good experience, but it didn't live up to the high expectations given how expensive it is.

I travel extensively around the world and always love it when I book at this hotel! The property is great and the front desk supervisor Alyssa is awesome!!!

It makes such a big difference when the front desk team members make you feel not only welcomed, but are sincerely happy that you chose their property to stay at!

Thank you Hilton SD Resorts for having a fantastic representative shine for the Hilton brand!!

My wife and I were a little nervous after reading very mixed reviews on this property. We came very close to changing at the last minute, but we're definitely happy we stuck with it.

We were there just a week ago with two young children. Staff from check-in, to the hotel restaurant, Acqua, to maid-staff, were very friendly (without being overly so), and wanting to help. In fact, when we asked for a room upgrade, the person behind the desk gave us keys to two different rooms to check out, and she even reduced the cost of the upgrade because we "were there with our kids and she wanted to make sure we had a great vacation." We were pleasantly surprised.

There have been reviews of the property needing upgrading. Our room was a good size, with two queen beds. The bathroom was modern and clean, although there it could have used some clean up on the caulking.

Restaurant was decent and not too over-priced (don't get me wrong, it's not cheap). Pool was heated and clean. Great central location: 30 minutes to Legoland, 10-12 minutes to the zoo, 15 minutes to Coronado. 5 minutes to Old Town.

The only reasons it doesn't get 5 stars are the before-mentioned issues with caulking, and one of the rooms that we were considering that had a nice bay view smelled mildewy (I think it was room 233), so we just kept the original room overlooking the parking lot. Also, the wi-fi connection was horribly slow. So slow that I ended up just creating a wireless hotspot with my phone and got a faster connection that way.

For people planning a trip to San Diego, I definitely recommend this hotel. Oh, and don't forget about the $33 per day fee for parking. I'm from Boston so I rarely expect free parking anywhere...
