Pleasant stay at the Hilton. I booked our stay at the last minute...literally while sitting in the parking lot. Some minor annoyances, i.e. had a pay a $35 parking fee…why? There was plenty of parking. I hate the whole resort thing…they make it sound like they are doing you a favor by charging you a resort fee... as though its an option (ala you get internet, use of the gym, etc.) but it’s not. They aren’t the only ones who do this,m so I can’t fault them for that. Once in my room, it occurred to me that I had not let them know that I was a AAA member. I called to the front desk and was politely told that I had to disclose that at the time I booked the room (10 minutes earlier) as; they “had a limited number of AAA-rated rooms.) Frankly, even with Comicon coming to town in two days, they didn’t seem excessively crowded. I wanted to ask, “So do you have any AAA rooms left?” Somehow I don’t think it would have mattered…that’s Hilton for you…they nickel and dime you to death.
The room itself was well appointed and comfortable. There was plenty of room for 3 adults. We visited and purchased snacks, etc. from the onsite the gift shop, which was well stocked. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. My son complained that the toilet was too low for his taste, but he’s 6’1”. It really didn’t bother the rest of us.
I did order the tuna tar tar (I think that’s what it was called). It was quite delicious. It along with the basket of bread made for a perfect sized light meal. All in all, a good stay but I will only stay there again if I can get the room cheaper.
Tip: Take the 59 mile scenic tour of San Diego. I’ve been to SD 200 times (at least) and saw things I had never seen before. Very enjoyable.
