We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The size and location of the room was outstanding. The location was less than 5 blocks from most of the destinations we wanted to go to. The exception was the zoo which was about 4 miles away. We drove to that location. We had two minor problems during the stay, but the hotel staff quickly... More

From the moment I walked into this beautiful Embassy Suite Hotel on the Bay in San Diego, I was impressed. First stay here, but won't be my last. Welcomed as a Hilton Honors Member right away. Brian welcomed me with a smile. Check in went quick which was welcomed after a long 6 hour train ride. There are two Brian's... More

Great location, good price, within walking distance of restaurants, harbor, and metro. Pool area was clean and indoors. Service was outstanding. Only draw back is the cars are valet parked making it difficult to get to anything you forgot in your vehicle. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

This hotel is located directly across from seaport village and the USS Midway. The rooms were large, quiet and clean. It was extremely busy over Thanksgiving weekend and lines were long for the breakfast buffet and evening happy hour but hey they were free.

The only downside to this hotel is there is only valet parking and it costs around $50 and night. There's not really anywhere to park other then vallet which is a huge downfall. But the location is a short walking distance from Seaport Village and the USS Midway. The breakfasts are beyond amazing and so is the manager's reception which... More

This hotel is a perfect location for downtown San Diego. Clean rooms, customer oriented staff, and very family friendly. Breakfast is always amazing with different choices everyday. Parking is always an issue on any downtown area. They only have a valet parking which will cost you $46 a day. However, there are metered parking on the outskirts of the hotel... More
