Great location if you want to take advantage of the Gaslamp District. You are also right in front of the Trolly and walking distance from the pier and all the shops and restaurants. Great place to go for a run, well equipped gym, walk by the park, and small pool. I did not eat at the hotel because if you...

The location was great. We were there for a convention and the convention center was right across the street. It was also an easy walk to restaurants and shopping and public transit. The room was average and could have used an update. It had a coffee maker and a refrigerator. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I have stayed at...

Beautiful Hotel surroundings. right beside trolley and one block to main Gaslamp restaurants, bars and shopping. Across the street to convention center. Good breakfast buffet, nice lobby, friendly staff. Nice size clean rooms with comfy beds. Only disappointment was the parking. $45 a night and valet only so have to always have money to tip valet.

Dear Kat4152, Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Great site. Room comfy. Except for Michelle who greeted us, staff was not affable nor engaging. Had difficulty to get internet working. Took one day plus. Front desk would transfer to IT. Waited 5 or more minutes, then phone disconnected. Finally IT gave the "code" and steps needed to connect. Offered this info to front desk personnel x3 occasions. They...

Really enjoyed the beautiful hotel. So close to the San Diego train system. Great hotel in the heart of the gaslamp district! So close to the USS Midway exhibit and museum. Everything you need close by to enjoy downtown San Diego.

The hotel has a great location, just across from the Convention Center. The check in process was extremely disappointing. I arrived after a long trip from the East coast after 3 pm and Jasmine at the front desk told me my room was not ready. I asked when it would be ready because I had a business meeting later in...

Dear Francescca B, We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. We apologize that we did not have a room prepared for you by our guaranteed check-in time of 3:00 p.m. In the highly-active Downtown area, this does happen, and we do what we can to accommodate our guests while they wait.

Excellent location, wonderful night life! Hotel staff service is excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Hotel is mostly modern but the rooms need updating, especially bathrooms. No dresser for clothes. They don't put soap in showers so you get in and get wet and discover you have to get out to get the soap off the sink. The Maids did...

I'm a Hilton regular and was very disappointed in my stay here. First of call, the location is great, however the train outside the hotel started at 4:30am and was very loud. Ask for a room on the city side instead of the convention center side to hopefully avoid this noise. Secondly, we returned to our room at 5pm and...
