Incredibly convenient location and very modern hotel. Breakfast was delicious but expensive. The shower head in the bathroom is very low. If you're taller than 5'4", you'll have stoop down to get your head wet. I'm only 6' and the shower head was below my eye level. The bed was average for comfort.

My sister was staying at the Hilton on the water, this one was on the harbor and across from the airport. Turns out it wasn't the same hotel. She was 5 minutes away in Mission Bay. This was a very nice hotel, with balconies and large rooms. Convenient location to airport, downtown and cruise port.

I booked my room through Hilton and booked the superior harbour view which I was told at their hotel desk was the top 2 floors. However, we were placed in a standard harbor room. When I pointed this out to the girl checking us in and she said the superior rooms were full. I had a reservation with the bed...

The Hilton was in an excellent location for early arrival at the airport and provided a very comfortable stay. the staff was helpful and nice and the price was reasonable. Views from the balcony of the marina and walking on the harbor drive were both great additions!

This hotel has some nice view. I booked this hotel using HHonors points and only booked a standard room. We were upgraded to a marina view which was nice as we could also see the ocean from our balcony. We didn't really have much contact with the staff as we were always in and out. Our room was clean and...

First time to San Diego for business or pleasure. Didn't expect to be on an island and stay at such a wonderful hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and the lounge after a day full of meeting was welcoming and relaxing.

We picked an upper floor king bed harbor view. Every staff encountered incredibly helpful. Enjoyed restaurant with Marina view - wait staff took time to share knowledge of area and best sights to see - made our stay richer (M&M and Lennia). Yes, add $22.00 daily parking fee to room rates, but that still keeps the room rates reasonable. You...
