Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 14, 2014

If you are looking for a hotel that is convenient to the Gas Lamp Quarter as well as the Convention Center, this is a good choice and less expensive than the Manchester Grand and the hotels overlooking Seaport Village. My room on the 9th Floor overlooked the Hard Rock Hotel, so there was a little noise outside on the weekend evenings. The room was spacious with 2 queen-size beds, flat screen TV, and plenty of outlets for electronic gadgets. WiFi is available at an additional charge. Room and bathroom were spotless, bed was comfortable, room temperature was easily adjustable, and there's a safe in the closet. I was happy with my choice for this visit to San Diego.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the redline tracks and the Hard Rock Hotel will be noisier. I was near the elevat...

Overall hotel is nice and location optimal for Gas Lamp district shopping and dining. Bathrooms need updates and plumbing is slow to drain. Parking is difficult to find in this area and hotel parking is $40 per day with wait for valet to bring car when you need it.

Thank you for the review of the Hilton Gaslamp!

It sounds like you were able to take advantage of our prime location and get out and about within the Gaslamp Quarter! We will look have our engineering staff pay extra attention to some of the slow draining issues you mentioned so that future guests don't experience the same.

We hope to see you back in the Gaslamp soon!

Perfect location just 50 yards to the convention center and 50 feet to Gaslamp Quarter. You don't have to go far to be entertained! The valet was super friendly and efficient. The front desk staff was kind and the Bell Service lady was warm and inviting. The outside of the hotel and the lobby are gorgeous. The hotel is also pet friendly and they have an off leash dog park right out the front doors. The room was a decent size too. The CONS: We were in room 528. We arrived at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday night and our room wasn't ready. How is that even possible? They gave us comp tickets to the bar area but that didn't even cover two glasses of wine. It took 40 minutes for our room to be ready. But how is it ready and clean when there are pistachio nut shells on the floor by the door? Just ick. I mean, for the love ... how long had those shells been there? They were right by the door - you couldn't miss them. Our mattress was so wrecked! If you try to sit on the foot of bed on the right hand side - you are probably going to end up on the floor. I guess that's where everyone sits because ALL the support is gone. So if the corner of the bed is that bad it makes you wonder how many people have stayed in that room and slept in that bed. That was NOT a place I wanted my mind to go. Finally, we arrived on Sunday night and left on Tuesday morning and that entire time no one vacuumed the hallway on the 5th floor. So while the service and location were "yay", the cleanliness and quality was "ew".

Room Tip: Stay on the north side if you can. We had a view of the convention center stairs, the dog park, and...

Jen S,

We appreciate your feedback and kind remarks about our staff and service. We would also like to apologize for the deficiency during your stay. We understand it public areas leading up to your room are as important as what is inside. We will take this opportunity to work with our staff to provide the best experience possible for future guests.

Thank you again and we hope give us another shot to take care of you during your next trip to San Diego!

So much to do! This hotel is close to everything! Nice rooms! Front desk staff is super friendly! The restaurant and bar are ok. Nothing special but it works for a quick drink! Super close to the convention center and the trolley. You get earplugs in your room because you can hear it at night!

We had an absolutely great time at the Hilton. It is amazingly located next to amazing restaraunts, bars, and nightlife. Everything you could ever need is a 5-10 minute walk away, and it is right next to the trolly. The front desk staff was so kind and helpful. Jordan helped us with all we needed and was awesome. The breakfast buffet was also great and included french toast, an omlette bar, fresh fruit, baked and toasted goods. Our room was very nice and clean and our bed was extremely comfy. Overall great stay and perfect place to be if you want to explore the gaslamp quarter.
