Shorewood, MN.
Reviewed 24 October 2015

I stayed here for a conference recently. Rooms are fine. Clean, well maintained, nothing special. For the price they charge, it would have been nice to have a mini-fridge in the room. Also, ridiculous to have to pay for wi-fi these days. View of bay was just fair, mostly a view of an industrial area where they unload ships. Bed...

The hotel is situated so that there is not a bad view to be had. Great employees willing to help with absolutely any request as we were prepping for decorating for a baby shower including putting...

Location is awesome...on the water (can be bad if you don't like that the dole dock is adjacent to the hotel) so can't beat the view and only 2 blocks from the gaslamp quarter! Rooms are clean and nice and service was great.

You cant beat the location. Its close to the convention center, marina and the gas light district. Service is typical Hilton, excellent. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great beds and pillows.

Overall, my stay was comfortable. The rooms are comfortable with quality bedding, bath needs, and good shower pressure (even during busy morning hours). My room was clean, and well serviced daily. The staff were helpful and friendly. Getting a cab from the hotel was very quick, though I wish the hotel offered a shuttle to the more popular destinations (zoo,...

I tagged along with a friend who had a conference at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. We paid $20.00 more a night to have a water view room on a higher floor and ended up in room 1623. The room was stuffy when we first arrived, and the AC seemed to not work properly, but after a call that night,...

Fabulous hotel within easy walking distance of the Gaslamp district. The rooms are spacious and well designed for comfort. The hotel is gorgeous with sweeping views of the bay. There are wonderful fire pits outside to sit around at night. Great choice in the bay area!
