Hilton San Diego/Del Mar
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Del Mar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Having lived just a half-mile away from this Hilton property, my first experience here started with some serious water damage at my nearby condo that had me staying there for nearly a month. Since moving away from the San Diego area, I have made it a point to again stay there when in town for business.

This is what I would call a very comfortable hotel. Located right off the five freeway it is an easy property to get to and from. The rooms are generally clean and of good size. Most of the staff is polite and helpful and the Courtyard grounds are very nice.

If you are doing business or vacationing in San Diego or further north up the coast, this is an excellent choice. The hotel shuttle guys are very accommodating when it comes to short trips to the restaurants nearby in Del Mar and along the ocean or nearby Solana Beach and the Cedro's shopping area. depending on the time of year, you are also just across the street from the Del Mar racetrack, the Red Tracton's restaurant (cool old style steak house) as well as the Polo grounds located just to the east. Evenings with a cocktail at the outdoor fire pit just off the lobby bar is a pleasant way to end your day.

The only minor inconvenience I have suffered in numerous visits has been trying to get housekeeping to service my room early in the morning. Other than that, the folks up front, in the club room, restaurant etc. are terrific.

Hopefully you enjoy your stay at the Hilton Delmar as much as I have.

Room Tip: Courtyard facing rooms provide convenience and a buffer from the five freeway to the back of the hot...

Thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your detailed review sharing your inside view of the local area. Thank you! I apologize we didn't get your room cleaned early in the morning. Not sure you contacted the front desk but this should be an easy request for us to fulfill next time for sure.

Thanks again and hope to see you back again soon.

Hadn't been to the Hilton Hotel in Del Mar for a few years and was a bit skeptical about making reservations for weekend getaway since my prior experiences with the hotel were just "o.k." I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised this go around. Everything has been upgraded and it's given the hotel the facelift that it so very much needed. The lobby, rooms, pool area, etc. Rooms are comfortable and a decent size if you get one with a balcony or lanai. My preference is a room with a balcony. Ask for a room that has a larger bathroom, otherwise you'll feel more than a little claustrophobic in such a tight space. The outdoor seating and pool areas are beautifully lit and the fire pits are a wonderful addition. When you check in you should definitely ask for Nick. His customer service skills are exemplary and he goes out of his way to ensure that you have a wonderful experience. I will definitely return!

Had a great experience. I recommend the pool area rooms, so you don't hear the freeway. The hotel has a garden and is served at the restaurant. Would stay again Went to the fair and concert across the street

The hotel and lobby were stunning. The grounds were beautifully manicured. The pool and deck areas were very comfortable with plenty of seating. The rooms were much larger than I expected. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

The sea breeze was as welcoming as the smiling valet that welcomed us back to The Hilton Hotel in Del Mar. Checking in and out is always easy and quick. As it was the third leg of The Triple Crown, a life sized "California Chrome" stood proudly in the lobby. It was also the third game in the Stanley Cup series. The club lounge and bar were great places to watch both events. Our room was beautifully appointed, comfortable pillows and beds. The grounds are lushly landscaped, the pool and spa beckons as do the lounge areas. The food is great, from appetizers in the bar to the breakfast buffet. Club level is the way to go, great staff! This is our "go to" hotel on the coast. Love the Del Mar Hilton!

Nice hotel of great value. Newly renovated lobby and guest rooms except for the hotel elevator which is still work in progress. The bathroom was okay, may be still work in progress?? Helpful & friendly hotel staff. VIP lounge for Gold card members. Great for family. Will stay there again.
