With easy access to SeaWorld, Mission Beach and downtown San Diego, this Hilton makes a great home base for sightseers. And the property's business center, meeting venues and Wi-Fi access make it a good choice for business travelers as well. Those who visited for work and leisure found the Hilton San Diego Resort to be an enjoyable place to stay. Recent guests praised the views afforded by the accommodations, as well as the in-room amenities (which include 42-inch flat-screen TVs and balconies or patios). Guests of the Hilton can also take advantage of the property's water sports equipment, its on-site spa and its outdoor pool. Come dinnertime, the American cuisine served at Acqua earns rave reviews, while the relaxed atmosphere at the poolside Fresco's makes it a great dining spot for those looking for good food in the sun. Some guests do lament the high price of staying here, though members of the Hilton Honors rewards program can see some of their costs mitigated with room upgrades and other perks.
