The harbor view was fantastic especially with the ability to sit outside the balcony to really enjoy it. The only downside to this hotel was that the parking was a little pricey. I would encourage all to stay here especially if you are a first time visitor.

I stayed at this Hilton for a brief conference. Here are the bright spots: safe and abundant parking, friendly Hilton staff and beautiful harbor view. Here are the low spots: underwhelming, old guest rooms and conference rooms. I will likely find another Hilton for my next trip to SD.

We stayed here during our 3 day visit to San Diego before leaving on a cruise ship vacation. The Hilton Harbor Island offered us everything a 1st time traveler to San Diego would want:

- Free shuttle service to and from the airport (only 10 min. away)
- Great views of the marina and harbor
- Quiet location
- Near all major highways and attractions
- Friendly staff
- Tasty continental breakfast
- Great restaurant next door (The Boathouse)
- Free shuttle service to cruise ships

We've stayed at Hiltons all over the country. This one was a great experience and value.

This Hilton is about as close to the airport as you can get without being on the airport proper and is located on Harbor Island. That is important because all the rooms face either the bay or the marina and thus have really lovely views. I was in a queen bed room facing south and could see both. The room was well set up and comfortable, and seemed to have been recently redecorated: tasteful without being fussy, and lots of power outlets, which is much appreciated. I've been on a roll lately with hotel staff, as all of the places I've stayed in the past month have had very personable, helpful people at the front desk, and this was no exception. While not downtown, and hardly a resort, the hotel shuttle is set up to take guests to several central locations, so the need for a car and parking issues are much diminished. The restaurant was OK for breakfast, but there are so many places to have dinner that you'll want to venture out. I recommend this place.
