I couldn't decide how to rate this hotel. For the most part, it was excellent and just what you want in a hotel - comfortable, quiet and clean rooms in a good convenient location. And all at a reasonable price, at least by San Diego in-season prices. Convenient to Del Mar and La Jolla.
Now the not so good. Have you ever been locked in the bathroom? Seriously, had someone not been with me to help open the door, I would have been sleeping in the bathtub. Whoever designed the sliding pocket doors (and whoever is responsible for maintaining the sliding pocket doors) should have their own level of purgatory. We learned not to ever fully close the door, thus providing a handhold for any kind exit.
When complaining at the front desk, another another guest related that he had the same problem. Maintenance provided some relief, but just barely.
It's not easy to correct faulty pocket doors. But come on Hilton, bite the bullet and fix the doors.
The only other (minor) complaint is the lack of an in-room safe. We are not comfortable have to put our electronic devices in our car trunk when we leave the room.
