So much to do! This hotel is close to everything! Nice rooms! Front desk staff is super friendly! The restaurant and bar are ok. Nothing special but it works for a quick drink! Super close to the convention center and the trolley. You get earplugs in your room because you can hear it at night!

We had an absolutely great time at the Hilton. It is amazingly located next to amazing restaraunts, bars, and nightlife. Everything you could ever need is a 5-10 minute walk away, and it is right next to the trolly. The front desk staff was so kind and helpful. Jordan helped us with all we needed and was awesome. The breakfast buffet was also great and included french toast, an omlette bar, fresh fruit, baked and toasted goods. Our room was very nice and clean and our bed was extremely comfy. Overall great stay and perfect place to be if you want to explore the gaslamp quarter.

Great hotel, nicely appointed rooms, decent price within walking distance of over 20 restaurants. Ask and you shall receive - if you want it an don't see it or can't find it, just SK. They really want to p,ease you. Little, but big thing - only want protein on my diet and ham steak was not on the breakfast buffet. Asked and for no extra charge they made to three days in a row. Only desire - a simpler, basic room service menu. Good stuff, but I was hoping for just some simple wings or a basic burger. Please add those!

We have stayed a many properties Downtown and this was by far my least favorite.The way the hotel is situated there is NO view to speak of from the one side and there were no windows for us to check the other one. The teens could see the Hard Rock and its pool/bar area across the way and were dying to be there!
There is a very small, dark, boxed in feel in the room. We paid extra for a "french balcony" but it was all of a few feet wide, dirty, and rusty. It was loud when the door was opened due to roof vents.
We ordered a snack from room service, kid's chicken fingers and a salad (which was excellent) but paid $5 delivery fee, $5 service charge and $3.68 gratuity…the food was only $16! The morning buffet was ok, but the room was like sitting in the haunted mansion with the bizarre chandelier and it's rotating candles, many with burned out bulbs! Service was slow.
The staff is nice enough, especially the pricey and required valet boys…very helpful.
The location is fantastic but with ALL the hotel choices in the same spot, I would pass on this one. The hotel is clean, beds nice, but not enough going for it for the price.

Room Tip: West facing and high floor!!!!

My friend and I treated ourselves to a night here when we visited San Diego. The valet parkers were friendly and informative, Andrew at the front desk was fantastic - not only in getting us quickly into our room but also with his suggestion of lunch at J-Six just around the corner. The room was very clean and well-maintained. Our view wasn't great - we looked out onto another building - but we did get a good price so I figured that was why. We were not that far from the elevator but the room was quiet and we didn't really hear anyone. The parking charge here is crazy. There is no reason they should be charging $40 a night. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel.
