From the moment we checked in 8/72015 to when we left 8/14/2015 our experience was great. We were there for my husbands conference . Jacob checked us in and was so pleasant and accommodating.

Great hotel and wonderful location. Right on the harbor and the views were spectacular. It was easy to get around and you can take a nice walk to Seaport Village. Walking to the gas lamp district took just minutes and there is so much to do. The bridge to Coronado Island was right there and you are also just across...

I am a long time Hilton Diamond Member and have stayed at too many Hilton's to count. My experience at this hotel has been above and beyond even Hilton's high standards and quality. From front desk to housekeeping, above and beyond. Thank you for making my stay enjoyable!

Nice hotel. GREAT LOCATION. Beautiful city. A lot of people but is a very big hotel and they have plenty of people working. The rooms are comfortable an the attention was very good. The city trolley tour have a stop in the same hotel which is great. Very happy with the selection. We will definitely come back.

Having stayed in several of the similar hotels in the area of the Convention Centre, this is for me the best for a number of reasons. It is simply the closest to the Centre and therefore very convenient. The breakfasts are very good in the downstairs restaurant. Direct access to the waterfront for morning walks or runs. 5 mins walk...
