I have chosen to post this trip report here, even though it was written for tripadvisor and friends who were interested. Tripadvisor is mentioned frequently in this text, please understand. A few weeks ago, I asked on tripadvisor a couple of questions about hotels in downtown San Diego and many of you were helpful. I promised a trip report and here …
... route and A LOT of money, (for example one town, Newport, had Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche and Audi Garages selling cars). We decided on our next try at the lottery, if we were to win, we would also be buying a house somewhere around this area too ;-)
We decided to stay the night in a place called Carlsbad at the South Carlsbad State Beach park, right on the beach. It was again a perfect place for us to take a ...

We arrived at the hotel and settled in, the hotel is an old bank which has been converted to the hotel after a bit more shopping in the handy Westfield's shopping mall ( I can't believe how much we get ripped off in Australia for clothes ...

We also stuck around the cove until sunset for the experience and some photos, and then stumbled upon a fabulous hole-in-the-wall sushi place for dinner unassumingly called Super Sushi, located on a side street off the main local shopping and dining strip, and which ended up having an excellent Pan-Asian menu, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter
Only spen the very last night of our holiday here, but it is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The staff are very friendly and helpfull, the food was great and the room was very specious and welcoming.
My husband and I staied here for our 1 year anniversary. We staied in the 5th Ave. loft which has a 2 person whirpool tub that opens up to the bedroom area. We were very surprised at the accomidations in the respect that you don't really feel like you are in a hotel room. The bed has a down comforter and pillows as well as a featherbed. The decor is a modern urban style which was great. We highlly recommend this hotel and we will request this room.
My husband and I stayed here when I came down to run the San Diego Rock and Roll marathon June 2003. We did stay one night in the Grand Hyatt because originally I wanted to stay at the Hyatt for the full three nights of our stay, but could only get the first night there because the Hyatt was full. I booked a 5th Avenue King Loft at the Hilton for Saturday and Sunday nights. The room included a whirlpool tub and I knew that would come in handy after running the marathon. This Hilton exceeded all of my expectations. Yes, the Hyatt has the view of the bay and the city. Our room at the Hyatt was on the 29th floor, concierge level, but the room was just standard and concierge lounge was nothing impressive. I liked the intimate feeling of the Hilton after coming from the cavernous Hyatt. The staff was friendly and efficient. They had fruit and snacks out early Sunday morning for the marathon runners.
You can expect great service here...
This hotel had the feel of a smaller hotel - definitely not a chain atmosphere. The staff were super friendly and service was excellent at the hotel. The room was clean and well decorated - somewhat trendy. The only complaint I have is that the air conditioning did not seem to work that well - not a problem at night because things really cool down at night. The hotel has a great location, but no view of the bay - this is blocked by the convention center. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
I just returned from a 4 day trip to San Diego. I have always heard people talk about that city as being amazing and all I can think about now is moving there. Expecting it to be nothing more than a glorified beach town, I was sorely wrong. If you haven't had the chance, visit San Diego. The city itself is beautiful. The downtown area, called the Gaslamp Quarter, is amazing. Great restaurants and bars. Amazing nightlife. I stayed in the Hilton Gaslamp Hotel and when I return, I will definitely stay there again. It was very much like the city itself...new, artfully decorated (the lobby and rooms are like a gallery in themselves), and very hip. The energy of the Gaslamp Quarter defines the hotel. Not only could I step out of the lobby into nightlife that makes my Georgetown seem so boring now, but I was a 5 minute cab ride to the airport and a 10 minute ride to the beach. The pool was on the smallside, but considering my only time spent there was having a drink on one of their teak "pool beds", I can't really complain. Service was great. The city was awesome. If you like great art, great music, great food, great weather, and beautiful people......definitely check out San Diego. The Hilton Gaslamp was awesome. I very much liked that it wasn't another huge hotel with a boring decor. It didn't have a restaurant called "The Captain's Club" or something completely unoriginal like that. No prefab art in gold frames....etc. etc. Everything was very comfortable and very tasteful.
I stayed at the Hilton Gaslamp Quarter on August 16-18, 2003, and had a different reaction than most of the previous reviewers.
As a frequent traveler, I have stayed in more hotels than my own home.
Upon arrival, I knew my three days in San Diego would be acharmed one.
The Gaslamp Hilton is cool, sophisticated and worth the $. I am returning this winter with my wife, and plan on reserving one of those great upgrades again!
All I can say is "WOW"! This hotel is as beautiful as San Diego itself!
We had an enjoyable stay in one of the loft rooms...a room that is pricey, but worth splurging on. What ever takes you to San Diego, it is a must to stay there. We will be back!
Quality Room, Good Service
Very comfortable bed with a pillow-top mattress. Helpful staff. Free high-speed Internet was a plus! Mini-fridge was unusable because it was full of mini-bar drinks. Pool and jacuzzi were nice, but slippery deck -- be careful! Oh, and they do close pool/jacuzzi/exercise area promptly at 10pm. Valet parking was expensive, $21/day (24-hours).
Gaslamp area is great for lunch/dinner, but not a lot of breakfast places within walking distance. Hotel restaurant had a decent, if slightly pricey breakfast. (We weren't on the Executive floors, so we don't know anything about this free continental breakfast in the Lounge.) Nearby trolley (every 15-30 minutes) might be a bother to some. We didn't notice it. If you've got kids, take the 40-min trip to Legoland -- it's really fun!
I recently stayed at this fabulous gem of a hotel.This is not your typical Hilton hotel. The entire hotel is upscale and hip without being contrived or overburdened with attitude. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant is superb. Try the lemongrass mussels and the portabello mushroom appetizers - to die for.I stayed on the Executive Level so I can only speak for the room on that floor - superb!!!A wonderfully comfortable bed. I requested feather pillows and they were brought up instantly.The Frette robes add a sense of luxury. The morning continental breakfast in the lounge is simple yet a lovely added extra.The hotel is right at the entrance to the Gaslamp which is full of wonderful shops and cafes. The Cost Plus about a half a block up is a great place to grab a bottle of wine, put it on ice in your room and come back to after a day of adventure.The pool on the 4th floor is wonderful for a deck pool with sofa style chaises and a jacuzzi. This is a great hotel for singles and couples with no kids either on business or pleasure. I look forward to my second stay there in July.
