Crap Stay

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 24, 2013

We chose to stay at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter for a few days before our Hawaiian cruise. We chose this hotel based on location and that we have Diamond status with the Hilton brand.

We arrived much later than expected due to our flight in Chicago being delayed for Air Force One to take off(thanks Obama). By the time we arrived at the hotel it was after midnight and we had luggage issues as one of our wheeled bags was broken by the airlines. We hopped into a taxi and quickly arrived at the hotel. There was no doorman or bellman present so we lugged our luggage inside ourselves and had to wait for someone to appear at the front desk. The front desk clerk seemed bothered to have to check us in and basically handed us keys and was done with us. No offer of help with bags.

We lugged our bags upstairs and began to settle in for a much needed sleep. The room was very nice and on the corner with nice views of downtown. The room had the usual bed, bathroom, chair, TV, dresser etc that you expect. The bed was comfy but sleep here was terrible due to all the loud, rowdy people who seemed to hang out in the halls all hours while we tried to sleep. We mentioned the noise the next day and were told a convention was in town; no appologies. We chose not to take part of the complimentary breakfast and sought a much better option outside of the hotel.

We tried to get a room in several other hotels but due to this convention they were all booked up. So we dealt with this for two days until we were able to hop on our cruise. Would I stay here gaian...hell no...even the prime location wouldn't bring me back here.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 7, 2004

After our funny story with the Hostel we decided to go all the other way and stay at the Hilton. The hotel is very nice, perfectly located if you're attending a convention and modern. It is the smallest Hilton hotel I've stayed in with not too many rooms I guess.

Unique Quality: I find its location better than the Marriott or Hyatt which are placed to the north side of the Convention Center but across the railway and somehow more distant from 5th avenue were all the action is.

Directions: Gaslamp Quarter, just across the Convention Center.
