We stayed at this hotel during our visit to San Diego last December. Our room was on the 14th floor with the bay view, and that view was spectacular. The hotel was luxurious, the room was clean and spacious, and the facilities were great. We had a breakfast at the hotel restaurant, and it was nice despite the long line...

This young hotel(6years I believe) is wonderfully maintained and perfect for a stay in San Diego with or without family. We stayed on the 29th floor and had an impressive view if the Bay and Coronado bridge. It has a spacious lobby and reception area with plentiful taxis outside and bell hops to help with your baggage.

The hotel is located on the bay and if you pay more for a room you get a nice view over the bay. The rooms are clean and very comfortable to stay in but when I walked in I didn't feel at home. It has a very modern look and doesnt have a unique touch. The facility is good. Again...

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The room was not very big but it was nice and clean. The staff was very accommodating when we asked for more towels and also for a little refrigerator. Also in a very convenient location. Great to walk to shops and restaurants. The buffet breakfast was amazing.

The upgraded room I was comped had dazzling view of the harbor. Room service was above average but parking was insanely expensive and there is no incentive to self park. A B+ Hilton property probably better for larger conventions than individual stays.

Very clever business plan. You sell the rooms as Hilton. You sell the facilities for a party. So as a hotel guest at 11pm there is no possibility to visit any bar or restaurant in the hotel. On New Year's Eve you just give the anonymous alcoholic on your room. Very take me to the Hilton!
