This hotel sits downtown near many good restaurants. It is very clean with large rooms and good customer service. Breakfast is complimentary and good too. It has an underground parking garage. The only downside is I had a room on the side of the train, so I heard it everytime it went by. Would stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We only spent one night here but the room was clean. The breakfast was plentiful, and check in was a breeze. The Staff was very friendly. The location is good especially if you want to walk along the boardwalk. A 5 dollar Uber ride to the Gaslamp district. The hotel also offers underground parking for $20 a night. I will...

The staff at the front desk could not have been nicer to our daughters. They were always smiling and helpful. We were also upgraded to a room with two rooms which allowed a lot more sleep for this family of four. Free breakfast was great. Hotel is in excellent location in walking distance to Little Italy, Marina and Gaslamp. Would...

The hotel facility, rooms, and amenities are excellent, and a fairly good value. There is construction going on next door, so you may want to check the status of it, as work starts very early in the morning. My room was on the same side as the construction site, so it was probably louder than usual in the early morning....

Great experience with using my Hilton Honor Program for this trip. Well situated now to always use Honors Honors for my travel planning, no matter the location. The San Diego location was ideally situated in the city and was close to good attractions and freeways.

Excellent room. Excellent breakfast. Extremely helpful at check in and with boarding passes. Close to airport especially since traffic is so bad in San Diego. Will will stay again if we ever have the chance to visit again.

Perfect hotel in the best location for us - near Little Italy, across from the Maritime Museum (which we loved!) and right next to the trolley (which we used frequently to get to all the tourist attractions we wished to visit!). Very comfortable. Very clean. Breakfast included and was delicious - a little different from the usual buffet offerings in...

We stayed 3 nights. The staff went out of their way to ensure our little boy enjoyed his stay. A delicious buffet breakfast is included which sets you up for most of the day, with coffee and tea (and popcorn in the evening) available all day in the foyer. There is a great children's playground across the street. We were...

Very conveniently located near airport, Little Italy (drinking and dining), Downtown, and the convention center is a short Uber away. Super clean room and the staff is awesome. They had their shuttle get me at the airport within 10 mins of calling. I gave 4 stars as the train tracks that run behind the hotel do create some noise. This...

Nice location near Little Italy. Heavy comforter that slipped off the bed. No microwave in the room. Took 3 calls to get my bill correct. Additional charge $25/day to park and not told before hand. Lots of construction going on.
