Just spent 11 days at the Hilton Del Mar and enjoyed thoroughly. Desmond was so pleasant and helpful with all our needs. Victoria made wicked Latte's at the bar. And the maids were exceptionally good with daily cleaning and restock. This has become our home away from home when visiting family in San Diego.

This hotel has popped up numerous times on my searches to find a hotel near San Diego/Beaches, etc. over the past year. The time finally came when it was the perfect location for me to book it. And what a PLEASANT surprise this was! Sure, they have renovations going on, but talk about an upgrade! The staff at the front...

This is a beautiful and comfortable hotel across the street from the racetrack. It was quiet, pool and grounds were very nice, staff friendly. The room was spacious, the fitness center looked well-equipped

The hotel is really quite nice. Large rooms, a gorgeous lobby, and beautifully landscaped grounds. Some reviews mentioned road noise or hallway noise as being problematic, but I didn't encounter that at all during our stay. The bathroom is spacious and well-appointed. I would definitely stay here again during the Del Mar National Horse Show.

Comfortable room, as usual. Very limited handicapped parking, and we were a long way from a handicapped ramp despite a request prior to our arrival. (we do not require an actual handicapped room). The door to our room did not latch properly, despite firmly closing it. I literally watched it pop open on it's own while approaching the room on...

Jennifer is the one to contact for restaurants, trips and any other attractions you may want to visit in the Del Mar and greater San Diego area.

I stayed at the Hilton San Diego Del Mar for a week in early May. What a great hotel perfectly located close to the beach, Fairgrounds, I-5 freeway, shops and restaurants.

This Hilton was within driving distance to the beach however not many restaurants real close to the hotel. The patio area was currently under construction so I couldn't sit bar side for a drink. The rooms were clean and service was great however not sure its worth the price plus the nightly self park fee is ridiculous.

Definitely coasting on the Hilton name. Too many corners are cut. This might as well be a Hampton Inn. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty expensive relative to the quality and offerings. Pork eaters will be in hogg heaven, but little for anyone else.
