Pros-- I love the location. Although it is an airport hotel it sits on a man made "island" that sits on San Diego Bay that is a favorite place for locals to walk and jog. Staff are amazing both in the hotel and the restaurant. Cons-- really just a Hilton in name only. More like a Hampton in quality, except...

As far as airport hotels go this one has a brilliant location. The hotel is a short free shuttle ride (needs to be called) away from the airport, located on Harbor Island on the San Diego Bay. Rooms have a great view of either the bay or the marina. Once you have crossed the airport parking lock, it’s an actually...

Stayed here to be proximate to the airport for an early flight. Enjoyed balcony and views of Bay, Downtown and Naval Station. Room nicely appointed for a chain and room service timely and fine quality. Would stay here again and make time to explore Harbor Island by foot or bike.

We are frequent Hilton customers and we booked the room knowing that it would be clean and offer transportation for our very early flight. We arrived early in the evening needing dinner. The staff were very nice but not well informed, failing to tell us about the very affordable deli next door to the hotel but mentioning restaurants downtown and...

We stayed here because we needed a hotel with a shuttle to the airport and there are surprisingly few decent hotels in San Diego that offer shuttles. Upon landing we discovered that their airport shuttle only runs upon request. No biggie since it's a short ride and the shuttle driver was friendly, but It would have been useful to know...

The hotel was clean and comfortable but had limited exercise equipment and NO scale. On the other hand we had a great experience with one of the reception people (Josh) We are an older couple and at times have trouble with the new phone technology. Josh took the time to download an app for us and show us how to...

I was scheduled to stay at a conference at the Sheraton next door, but the Hilton looked nicer. Their shuttle service is awesome. They will run you to the airport, the Sheraton or anywhere in between. (The Sheraton has a shuttle which runs just every 20 minutes). I enjoyed the buffet breakfast which is free for Gold Honors members. It...

The front staff were very helpful and eager to please! Any questions about the area, they were ready to answer and they took the time to find out what our interests were so they could make recommendations. The cleanliness of the hotel was great and the service staff in this capacity, were very friendly. The only issue we had was...

Nice hotel close to the airport. Their shuttle will take guests other places also. I had a balcony with great views of marina and bay. Most of the front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. The quesadillas, molten chocolate cake, and for breakfast eggs Benedict from the restaurant were wonderful. The only problem I encountered was a 1st for...

I have stayed here several times, location is awesome, close to airport without all the noise, and great views from all rooms, whether the bay or the marina. Its my go to hotel in San Diego, easy to get to I-5, zoo, Coronado and Gaslamp District.
