I like that the property is walking distance to seaport village and other nearby attractions. I don't like to have to pay for a hefty fee for parking per night, especially as a Hilton Silver memember.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. I'm glad you found our location convenient for your San Diego travel plans. I'm sorry you were unhappy with the parking fee. We are a valet only property so the parking fee accounts for the necessary staffing. We do provide a $10 discount on the parking rate for all Hilton Honors members; Blue, Silver, Gold and Diamond.

Nice and clean room and common area. Swimming pool too cold. Room mechanical equipment makes a loud humming noise. Shower drains slowly.
