I enjoyed this Hilton. I had seen on their website that they had shuttle service and called a week prior to confirm. I was told to just call when I arrive and they would send over the shuttle as it was close to airport. When I arrived, I called and was told there was no shuttle. While that is not insurmountable, it was not expected that I did not have transportation. I did find a reasonable shuttle that I paid for and got there fine.
Check-in was fast. Room was typical of a downtown Hilton, upscale bedding. Thankfully, my package included internet as I usually have to pay from $10 per day and up depending upon location. I did see reviews where guests had to pay.
View was great looking out over the water and bridge to Coronodo. Housekeeping was attentive. There were several restaurants and a Starbucks in the hotel. I was disappointed to have to pay $18 for a cup soup, salad, iced tea in the sports bar for lunch. Food was fine. We ate there another evening and just got burgers.
It was a great location with a waterfront walk for quite some distance to other restaurants, Seaport Village, USS Midway, and ferry tours. I also was able to walk to Gas Light Village with lots of other restaurants, etc. Great trip to San Diego.
