    Hotel del Coronado, Curio Collection by Hilton
    Coronado, CA
    4.2 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 6356 reviewsTripAdvisor (6356)
    Free WiFi
    The Grande Dame of Coronado, this red-roofed hotel has overlooked the Pacific from its beachfront locale since 1888. Throughout its history, the storied Hotel del Coronado has been a favorite among traveling presidents, including Benjamin Harrison, William Taft, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. Movie stars, such as Charlie Chaplin, also paid visits, and the Hotel del Coronado played the backdrop to the feature film "Some Like It Hot" in 1958. More recent guests said the property's past adds an air of romance (though some feel that room rates are too high). Accommodations have been upgraded to include modern amenities, such as high-speed internet and flat-screen TVs, and the property offers visitors access to the on-site spa, two pools and a wealth of in-house eateries. Lucky for Hilton Honors members, you can earn and redeem points at this location.

    With easy access to SeaWorld, Mission Beach and downtown San Diego, this Hilton makes a great home base for sightseers.

    Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego Bay Downtown
    San Diego, CA
    3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2044 reviewsTripAdvisor (2044)

    Accommodations at the all-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego Bay Downtown feature two-room layouts with wooden furnishings, marble bathroom vanities, flat-screen TVs and desks with ergonomic chairs. Fees for in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking apply, but all room rates include the brand's complimentary evening receptions and breakfasts. Prior guests enjoyed both of the hotel's free services but suggested arriving early for weekend breakfasts to avoid waiting in long lines. Many also cited the friendly and speedy reception staff as a plus, though some felt the lobby was a bit cold and could benefit from more comfortable seating. Beyond the lobby, travelers have access to an array of business and leisure amenities, including a business center, multiple meeting rooms, a fitness center and an indoor pool. For all-day dining, there's NY West, where grilled dishes are served alongside wines, spirits and a selection of local brews. A Dunkin' Donuts is available on-site as well. This Hilton-affiliated property – which participates in the Hilton Honors loyalty program – is located in downtown San Diego within walking distance of the Gaslamp Quarter, the San Diego Convention Center and the USS Midway Museum.

    Hilton San Diego Mission Valley
    San Diego, CA
    3.8 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1003 reviewsTripAdvisor (1003)

    Although some recent guests said rooms located near the elevators and those overlooking the adjacent freeway were noisy, overall, many past visitors enjoyed their stays at the Hilton San Diego Mission Valley. Located in San Diego's Mission Valley neighborhood, this Hilton outpost sits within 5 miles of top attractions like Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo and has a 24-hour business center, an outdoor swimming pool and a fitness center. Additional perks, such as access to a lounge that serves free breakfast daily, are available if you stay in an upgraded guest room or suite, and all accommodations come with amenities like flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and minifridges. Room decor in each space is modern with cream and brown tones, gray accent fabrics and wooden furnishings. When you're ready to grab a bite to eat, you can choose from several eateries along Mission Valley's main thoroughfare, Camino De La Reina, or the on-site Polanco Kitchen & Bar. Past diners described the restaurant's Mexican-inspired cuisine as tasty but pricey. If you're a member of the Hilton Honors rewards program, you can help offset food costs by paying for your room with points.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 161 reviewsTripAdvisor (161)

    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego - Mission Valley woos guests with its top-notch customer service and modern accommodations. Each guest room starts at 450 square feet and features dark wood furnishings, a flat-screen TV and DoubleTree's signature Sweet Dreams beds. Meanwhile, suites boast additional square footage, balconies and dining tables.

(Hilton Honors loyalty program members can counteract these expenses by using points to pay for rooms.) Other amenities – including the fitness center, two pools (one indoor and one outdoor) and hot tub – are free for all guests. For meals, visitors can choose between a grab-and-go cafe and two restaurants. Fountain Cafe serves breakfast every day in a Mediterranean-inspired space, and Windows Lounge offers a selection of appetizers, entrees and cocktails throughout the day. After satiating your appetite, explore San Diego by car or via the city's trolley system. This fee-based service stops next to the hotel and by top attractions like the USS Midway Museum and the Gaslamp Quarter.
