This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We can not fault it. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The views are beautiful.
It is very close to the airport and although a little way from Downtown there is a free shuttle which will take you to the airport and Santa Fe depot for connections.
Bed is comfortable and rooms very clean.
The restaurant has good quality food for the price, and the staff are most attentive.
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: You have a choice of either harbour side or marina side. Both are excellent.

I never reserve rooms ahead of time but rather the day of my stay in attempts to get better deals online. I received a great value, a perfect location next to the airport and across from the bay. I feared loudness from the airport, and there was zero noise. The resturant staff are excellent, especially the evening servers.

Although we are 9/10 of mile from San Diego Airport we do not get any of the noise as we are not under the flight path. We are happy to recognize our staff at Sierra Pacific Restaurant and lounge. We look forward toward your next visit. Thank you again!

Great location and accessibility to downtown San Diego. It is a few minutes driving distance. Great views from the harbor on one side of the hotel and the bay on the other side. Wonderful walking trail by the bay right outside of the hotel. The breakfast buffet is just passable but if you order from the breakfast menu the food is much better. Expect a charge of $25 per night for parking which is not stated upfront when booking a room. Staff are relatively friendly not overly so but are willing to help if asked.

I stayed here one night (cruise from Fort Lauderdale, through Panama Canal, ending in San Diego). Hotel is outstanding in all respects: Quiet although very near airport, shuttle to airport, spacious room and perfectly clean, courteous service at check-in and check-out, excellent restaurant where I ate dinner and breakfast, 2 complimentary terminals in lobby for computer work and fast connection to Internet (great for "getting back to reality of work" after the cruise!). The Hilton name can take great pride in this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms seem very good; higher ones would have a better view. Ignore spa rating -- I did not use.

A fantastic location with amazing views and a front desk rep. By the name of Katherine Garcia that is outstanding at her job and really makes guests feel great about staying.
Hilton should truly value such employees and recognize their value to the company.

Room Tip: Go for the Marina view.

We loved harbor view from our room. It's around $8 more than their standard room rates, but it's worth it.
Hotel's exteriors seem aging, but still well maintained.
Our room was clean and the room's view faces the harbor can't be beat.
Hotel rooms also have their own patio.
Parking is not free even though it's not a downtown hotel. But still worth to stay 1 or 2 nights.

Room Tip: Pay extra for harbor view. Don't choose marina view.
