Hilton San Diego Airport/Harbor Island

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel. Staff was friendly and the bar & grill had excellent food. Convenient for an early morning flight. Room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and hopefully stay longer to enjoy the views.

The halls and my room smelled of mildew. The place looks like a dump and needs updating. I I was shocked that this was a Hilton.

upon checkout, we received a bill for $6 for "phone calls". They said we placed 3 phone calls when we had our own cell phones. I told the staff we did not place these phone calls and they said their system was accurate. I then showed her receipts from our Uber trip and restaurant showing we were not even in our room during the time these so called phone calls were made and she said she would look into it. We later returned and another member said he would "waive the charges" as if he was doing us a favor by removing them.

The stay here was very nice enjoyed the view and peace and quite even though so close to airport. Paying for parking a little much bur over all I would stay there again

Great for the conference I was attending at the nearby Sheraton, with a short 3/4 mile scenic walk each day. The only downside was no close by shops or restaurants, however I did enjoy room service. The hotel also provided a free shuttle into town to a shopping area, so that was handy.

My experience at this hotel was great. The moment I walked in I was greeted and helped right away. We enjoyed our stay there because the hotel was clean, great views, and close to everything. I would definitely book a room there again on my next visit to San Diego.

Hotel was very nice! Room had a great view. Employees were very polite. Parking price was reasonable. Will stay again and refer this hotel to others.

Overall great experience! Right on the harbor with a balcony. Hard to beat.

We had a bay view room - the views were fabulous. 7th floor and up would be even better! The staff was great and room was spacious and clean and had all amenities (Mini Fridge, hair dryer, iron, coffee maker etc.). Walk along harbor island was beautiful. Only issue is that hotel is kind of far off and you need to drive if you want to go anywhere.

The restaurant is quite good. The pool and spa a big hit with our grand kids. The location is very close to the airport but also had lovely frontage on the harbor and marina. Definitely the best airport hotel we've ever stayed at!

I chose this hotel because of the view either to to the harbor or to the marine. I got nothing but a view to the air conditioning system in the farthest corner. When I requested a better room, the front desk lady answer that all their rooms are abest room in every aspect. Didn't buy her argument.

This was an amazing place to spend the 4th of July Holiday ! The whole entire staff was so wonderful and accommodating . Had a perfect view of the fireworks !

I left silver bracelets in my room. They returned them to me! The bar is down to earth, great servers.

Low Quality for the price! I would not recommend this Hilton location.

The hotel was pretty standard. It was clean and the service was good. The area was also nice. The parking was a bit of a pain.

The hotel was great! Great views and cleanliness! First time spending the night in downtown San Diego and this location was worth the money! Although it was not walking distance from the Gaslamp district, it was not a far drive what so ever. Also there was the option of taking the shuttle which was amazing.

It was a great hotel and the staff was wonderful. Clean comfortable room. Moved me to an area where I wouldn't hear the construction going on so that was great! it was not in the best location for business, but that was entirely my fault booking. I should have booked downtown. All in a great trip.

Nice, clean, marina front, away fom noise. Complimentary transportation to downtown. Staff courteous and helpful.

Staff helped to make it an unforgettable awesome memory by placing us a couple more floors up just to give us a better view and was it ever. Felt we were on a cruise ship balcony room because of the harbor ocean view. Best location for visiting balboa park, midway, point loma,old town. Easy to get to all by bus.

Best service I have got. So sweet, and personality. Good location besides a lot of sea food restaurants.
