I stayed here for a weekend of fun in San Diego. Upon arrival, the staff was professional and helpful. The check-in was simple and the lobby was modern, fresh, and inviting. The room was appointed nicely and it was very clean. The beds and pillows were of good quality. Nothing too fancy overall, but nice. The location of the hotel...

Convenient to gas light lamp district, convention Center, ferry to Coronado Island, Midway Museum. Suggest paying more for the Bayview to watch the gorgeous sunsets. 10 minute taxi cab from the airport and free cabins are available from the hotel. Within 1.4 miles you can walk to the harbor cruise which is either one or two hours to the north...

Stayed here for a conference over the summer. Hilton's vary a lot between locations and this was one of the better ones: clean (some are not) and pleasant. Room was comfortable and well appointed, even the usual Hilton plumbing problems were not in evidence - everything worked well. As others have noted: no robes and not much else either, it...

We were there for nearly a week. We checked in the same night as a Taylor Swift concert across the street at Petco Park, so things were a little hectic. We could hear the songs perfectly from outside, and from the upper floors you could easily see into the park. There is no complimentary breakfast, and no free parking. The...

Excellent hotel in prime position. Lovely walk in bay area. Lots to see and do . Plenty of restaurants. Gas lamp area is also a must. Balboa park had something for everyone.

Had high hopes about this hotel given that it's relatively new and at a great location. Unfortunately, it was one problem after another that led to a really lousy stay at inflated prices. First of all, the online check in was a fiasco. On arrival, the room wasn't ready. They tried to convince us to take a lesser room, which...

At this price level, the lack of robes, fridge or even a blanket in the room is quite surprising. Then add in the cost of parking at $32 /day and internet fees it's a ripoff. We even paid for an upgraded room and when I took a shower it was half bath as the water was also coming out tub...
