Nice hotel. Convenient to airport. Clean. Average complimentary breakfast as expected from a hotel. Front desk staff very friendly. Only bad thing was no restaurants within walking distance open after 10PM.

Good location near Little Italy, fee shuttle with friendly drivers. Great, hot, fresh breakfast. Above average customer service, even the security guard was engaging and friendly. These makeup for the somewhat dated, but clean, appearance of the hotel.

Hi Deefromdallas! Thank you for the shout out on our great location, breakfast and great staff. Although I'm some what surprised by your comment that the hotel is dated for we just completed our entire hotel renovation. Maybe its the art deco look on the exterior?

This property is a bout a block from Little Italy and about a 20-30 minute walk to the Gaslamp Quarter. Staff was super friendly and the rooms were clean. Afford-ably priced for San Diego as well. Parking garage on site. Our room had a particularly loud AC unit that thumped when it cycled off. We often sleep until 10-11 because...

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days prior to departing on a cruise. It was clean, convenient and the staff were very helpful. They gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and provided transportation to the port the morning of our cruise. We will stay here again should we return to San Diego.

When we arrived the Hampton sent a shuttle to pick us up from the airport. The shuttle driver was extremely kind and informative. The hotel allowed us to check in early and we were able to spend the rest of the day walking around nearby Little Italy. Throughout the weekend the hotel staff continued to be welcoming and accommodating. We...

We requested a quiet room and were placed on a floor on which we were surrounded by loud, late-night partiers. The personnel at the front desk, when asked for the location of City Hall, pointed and told us nothing more. We requested a luggage cart and were told, with a forced smile, "it's upstairs." I would advise Hilton Honors members...

Room was clean, updated and comfortable. Bed was comfortable, Linens were in great shape. Bath was new and clean. We had a great view from the room. The food we ordered to be delivered by the hotel recommended vendor was very good.

Upon arrival, after traveling from the other side of the United States we were informed our hotel had been cancelled by Priceline! What..Crazy?! This turned into a three hour nightmare with continuous incompetent people at Priceline. Regardless, our concierge Ellis Rose was a phenomenal help!

I stayed one night for business. First and foremost, I checked in in the app, picking my room and entering my credit card. This has always worked fine for me.
