Nice in town getaway

Hotel was great, far enough away from crowds and action so a peaceful time can be had, yet close enough to get to as desired. Bed and views were great! Not sure why in this day and age, basics like small refrigerator, DVD player or free wifi not part of the hotel stay; especially after chafing premium prices.

Big Let Down

We found that the restaurants were not available when we wanted them (Sunday mid day) and that the staff from the valet to the counter clerk were rude and void of any personality. The only friendly people we found in the hotel to be gracious were the two Bell men we had. I believe we are through with Hilton Hotels after this stay and a previous stay in Phoenix.

Birthday Getaway

GF was turning 21 and this was the perfect hotel, both luxurious and close to our favorite Gaslamp bars. Great deal on the room, would definitely recommend to others.

Wonderfull Anniversary

Loved every thing about the hotel, location, room, staff, lounge areas restaurant. Would stay here again. It just does not get a perfect rating because I still can not understand why you would charge guests to park. It is just wrong. If I have two hotels, about the same in price and amenities, I will always choose the one that does not charge me to park.
