We arrived in the morning around noon, very tired from our flights and running on 2 hours of sleep. Staff at valet were very cheerful, receptionists at front desk were super helpful and lovely, greeted us with a smile and offered us an upgrade for our Hilton Honors status. I’m very grateful for them to give us an early check in since we were all extremely tired. Property is up to date and was renewed during 2019, rooms are comfy, extremely clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast and reception is a plus that we all love. We will definitely come back!

Had a 10-day stay here for work. My room was spacious, clean, well lit, great room service. The breakfast every morning was fantastic, they have an omelette station that’s delicious. Ida was amazing I enjoyed seeing her every morning! In the evenings they have happy hour, loved it. The guest service at the front desk were always helpful and able to handle every one of our request and we’re so nice. Aaron was helpful and communicative regarding our stay. For those who need access to the San Diego Convention Center and Gaslamp Quarter, be aware that it’s a 13-15 minutes walk. Not bad, but can make a difference depending on who you are. My colleague and I loved this property and hope to come back.
