It all started with large long black hairs all over rooms and all over pillows Glasses at restaurant have soap stains If you eat outside there are meat wasps that will ruin your food

My dog stepped on glass I called super upset for Neosporin The front desk didn’t even let me finish telling them the issue before routing me to a number that rang and rangRan out of towels and toilet paper twice in one week No room service on anything Spilled on my sheets so I took them outside came back 12 hours later and they took the sheets and cups but didn’t replace themThis place might be cool to drive a couple of balls but the hotel staff is super rude and not even close to hospitableThey literally shoes me away and while my dog was bleeding they accused me of stealing a gold club because I left it behind They made me feel unwelcome and I’ve had extremely better service at a comfort inn Terribly over price and the rooms are outdated

Breanna Meyer

Very disappointed in this place All this place has going for them is it’s pretty They didn’t have room cleaning each day which you don’t find out till you are in your room, they have a sign on the bed

They can’t even bring you fresh towels each day There was no microwave even motel 6 has that Ran out of toilet paper was only there for two days and was only in the room to sleep All hotels at least provide extra roll somewhere When I opened the bed I found some hair on the covers Pillow case had a stain Don’t recommend

Celeste Ramirez

I am not one to leave reviews but I saw way to many reviews saying similar things in regards to their stay and I experienced the same I wish I would have read them before booking my stayThe hotel is very outdated, the rooms are poorly maintained with tons of decaying

No housekeeping Refrigerators in the rooms do not work The Blow dryer was very old and almost dangerous to use as it would spark flame when turned on The toilets would also not flush right away, it took minutes to flush away (close to 10 min of that) The water from the shower would also take minutes to drain They must have some plumbing issues Poor quality and worn out/old bathroom towels Paint scheme/decor over 40 years old This place is NOT a resort or high end hotel and definitely not worth the price Avoid this place

Stayed there end of February into March for 5 days We definitely underestimated this place Perfect location for us

Our drives were on average ONLY 20-30 minutes from everywhere we wanted almost To all the popular places Staff were extremely nice, helpful, and no complaints Ability to have our room cleaned everyday Valet parking was quick and worth the money Even late at night when everything was closed a staff member opened the snacks for us Only complaint was that our balcony door was broken and didn’t close all the way and we were fading the 405 so it got loud but we managed to fix it a little Told the staff and they are aware Definitely staying next time we visit LA

We stayed here for one night at the end of May 2022 The hotel has a nice contemporary feel and the pool and fitness area are lovely I wish we had known about the freeway that runs next to the hotel before we booked because it’s really noisy

There was no soundproofing against the road noise We asked to change rooms and were told they were fully booked so they gave us earplugs!Also interested to read about the complimentary valet service on here because we were charged $34 and it was obligatory

Surge Vargas

The stay was not too great I had requested a room with a glass door for the shower I was given a room with a current

When I called to request a changed of room they did not have any rooms of the same type with glass doors even though I was reassured there was before checking into the hotel The current was kind of dirty, so I did not take a shower The room was kind of dirty The bed was really comfortable though, so that’s a positive I probably would have left, but I had an event I had to go to When I was checking out I was getting charged for their “complimentary” ride I was charged twice for a ride to the gas station When I brought it up I was told that it was more than 3 miles The gas station is across the bridge The charges were taken off, but I had to wait for 2 people to review the charges who initially brushed them off I would not stay here again and would not recommend anyone to stay here There are cheaper alternatives that do not embellish, falsely advertise “complimentary” items, and at least compensate for the inconvenience The 1 star is only for the bed and because I could not give a 0 star review

This is a nice hotel I stayed here for a night and was satisfied with my experience I booked this hotel online and checked into it

When I checked in, I was given a room key, which is required for guests to access their room as well as the parking garage The parking garage is big and has many spaces, but it has a $30 overnight parking fee, which is annoying The rooms, however, were much nicer than the price of the parking garage The room I stayed in had a living room with a fold out couch bed, a bathroom window, a giant TV, a closet, and a complimentary travel guide/magazine for Orange County I didn’t know what you can do in Orange County, so this guide was very convenient This hotel also has a separate bedroom, which has a comfy bed, another giant TV, and a balcony The bathroom in the hotel room has an average sized shower with two shower heads: one in place and one you can take off the shower pole to help you wash hard to reach areas The bathroom is very bright and clean, which is nice This hotel has a bar as well, but I didn’t go there I gave this hotel five stars because it has amazing rooms with comfy beds and a travel guide about Orange County, which I found to be very helpful This hotel is much more upscale than I expected, and it’s conveniently located by attractions such as South Coast Plaza, the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and John Wayne Airport The only problem I had with the hotel was the price of the parking garage and the temperature of the hallways, which were warmer than normal for some reason

This Marriott at Costa Mesa is quite nice, the pool was full of people on a hot Sunday afternoon in Southern California I only stayed here for one night after three days of conference at an airport Hyatt Regency, it’s quite relaxing The business lounge here is open 24 hours and fully stocked with bottles of orange juice, cold spring water, and some biscuits during non breakfast and non evening happy hours, it’s next to the swimming pool so a lot of customers come in and out for drinks by the pool

I got a complementary suite upgrade with my Titanium membership, which was very nice All in all, it’s a very pleasant and relaxing stay ! Cheers!

James F. Haas

Difficult to rate Was there for an art gallery reception No real display space, and just a few pieces were hung in a narrow hallway which got blocked too quickly

Nice outdoor space, beautiful view of landscaped terraces with waterfalls and small ponds, not a bad indoor lobby though a little small, excellent guitarist singer who was for the affair and the staff serving the bar were friendly and very entertaining as well So the experience was good, outdoor was nice, indoor was just not appropriate for the needs of the weekend art reception Absolutely not the fault of the marriott, but I feel a poor selection by the art gallery that put on the affair Still, it was a pleasant eveningI did not stay over so I cannot evaluate the staff or the rooms

My husband and I went to the Hyatt Regency New Port Beach last night to watch Christopher Cross for the Summer Concert Series The drive was beautiful The line to enter the hotel has to be more organized

There was traffic coming from three directions, but the gentleman was friendly and led us to the parking lot The gentleman that was doing the parking fees was friendly and very helpful $30 parking fee for the hotel Staff inside were friendly and helped my husband and I to where the concert was The gentleman putting the wristbands on was friendly, professional and we enjoyed the small talk with him A nice woman helped us find our seats The seats were uncomfortable, and very tight where we were sitting A nice couple we sat by was fun to talk too Christopher Cross did not come out until almost 8:30pm, when he was scheduled to come out at 7:30pm There was another artist singing , and it was relaxing and enjoyable to hearWhile waiting for Christopher Cross to come out, there was this drunk woman arguing with this man about a seat, and a bit of drama irrupted, but they solved it quicklyWhen Christopher Cross came out, he seemed like he really didn’t want to be there He didn’t say anything, and started singing I was disappointed to not hear him singing “Alright “ His back up singers did more Would of loved to hear him, because it’s one of his best songs I enjoyBut then he sang my favorite, “ Never be the same, “ Sailing, “Swept away, and “Arthur’s theme” Loved his new songs, and his humor during the concertChristopher Cross is a legend, and for my husband and I to see him is absolutely a gift Gorgeous weather coming out, and throughout the concert Clean, elegant bathrooms Not a line or long waitHighly recommend to get an aisle seat if coming We sat in the middle, very close to Christopher Cross Except for this man’s big blow pop head in front of me, then when he got up, there was another person with a big Homer Simpson head blocking my view of Christopher CrossA beautiful, elegant atmosphere Very fancy, and Summery I rated 3 because of the friendly, professional staff, Friendly parking workers, beautiful, clean bathrooms, gorgeous weather, beautiful, elegant atmosphere everywhere around us, friendly, fun couple we sat by, easy access and fast exit out of the parking lot The only things was the traffic coming into the hotel should have two lanes to let more event customers in quicker instead of blocking traffic, the seats, those hideous drunk people, Christopher Cross coming out late, and him not singing “ Alright” Other than that, my husband and I were very pleased with this lovely, dazzling, and elegant hotelThank you for welcoming us We will be back again for another Summer Concert Series in the future

Very dated rooms and resort However, the food is good, the customer service is nice along with convenient location and nice swimming pools I love it the most is having a private access or entrance to Newport Backbay for a run or walk

No more excuses for not going out to workout The property is very family oriented All the staff are nice and friendly I highly recommend this property to all my friends

Beautiful hotel! Well maintained and clean with friendly and helpful staff Our room was very comfortable and good sized Furniture was comfy including the king bed

Lovely views of the ocean from our room, and it was walking distance to shopping and several restaurants Free breakfast was quite tasty and included cold and hot items such as scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, danish rolls, etc Our stay was very enjoyable!

Julie Marcus

We are finishing up a 20 day west coast trip We stayed at Marriott’s the entire time – of varying quality and brand This SpringHill was lovely and about mid way through our trip

The staff was friendly and the rooms were big, clean and updated (hotel looks new) The hotel is a bit off the beaten path from Monterey but a good location for an overnight and nearby many box shops as well


Some confusion at check in was really upsetting especially with a cranky toddler on your hands… check in was at 3… we arrived at 4 and was told a 45 min wait… hotel front desk said our room wasn’t ready I said well I’ll take a complete refund and I’ll get outta here… 5 minutes later and what do you know our hotel was “ready??? “ seemed suspicious I’ll sitck to Monterey bay inn

Beautiful hotel and resort The grounds are gorgeous and they do a lot of things well in terms of aesthetics I think food options and restaurant accommodations could be better and more diverse; however, there are lots of options in town

Stay in one of the renovated parts if possible for the best accommodations They don’t provide room service and also do not service rooms, but they do accommodate requests for room cleaning easily I feel for the cost, a quick room refresh should be standard though Beach access/amenities and pool ambiance/service were great

vic NY (Vic NY)

This hotel has two parts, the original historic building and the new part We stayed in both parts They did a great job preserving the historical part of the hotel

However the rooms in the old part are just too historical and old for my taste I even jokingly said they smelled historical because you literally needed to air the strange smell out The carpets and furnishing were all too old and worn out for me Old building I can only give it 35 stars After we moved to the Cabana View, it was day and night Everything was brighter and moderner and cleaner You definitely should book a room in the new building, preferably an ocean facing one while enjoying the historical common spaces in the old one The new building deserves 5 stars The grounds are nice and the service level is high compared to the one we stayed in Santa Barbara This hotel is super busy in the high season If you don’t like the crowd, try to avoid the busy season I am sure the experience would be a lot less hectic

Bobby Moore

Staff is amazing and down to earth if you allow them to be Otherwise they are just professional and follow through with their jobsThe rooms in the cabana are beautifully done

Very put together Well worth the pricingThe restaurants are delicious and pricey! But again delicious, the service was great Staff, fun and attentiveThe location is perfect Parking easy, view amazing The Hilton Hotel Del made our couple days here magical Thank you

chris ohanians

Really poor hotel, staff and amenities The staff are uninterested in main They do not want to provide a good customer service experience

The bar is often unmanned, the breakfast cafe was sometimes unstaffed and closed The bar menu is limited at best The rooms are not clean We had blood on the floor of the room and the concierge staff were somewhat surprised we asked for the room to be cleaned In the end they just put some towels outside the door Guests also bring their own bags in on trolleys in a 9 floor hotel The parking is charged to guests at $30 per day without any discount or free access to paying guests A terrible experience all round and would avoid at all costs if you are staying in Redwood City

Kathleen McCabe

On the plus side the staff are outstanding, friendly, try really hardOn the needs improvement side: property was once branded as a SofitelThat was clearly some time and some age of the premises and upkeep ago

Recently rebranded from another name to Grand Bay, the temporary signage they’ve slapped on the building looks so sketchyDespite its outstanding location in great proximity to a number of large businesses in the area, the building is very tired, in need of upgrades, very limited food services, no real amenities or services on site No laundry In the rooms themselves, definitely tired and in need of renovation Defects in the bathroom walls have been painted over repeatedly Cleaning is just so so Hairs in the bathtub which clearly were not mine No robes, no laundry service, and if your luggage is lost like mine was there’s very little that they can offer you to helpRoom service staff are extremely pleasant and responsive but the menu is very limited and the prices are out of step with the quality of the food All food comes with plastic utensils and plastic containers and delivered in plastic bags so it’s never hot by the time it gets to your room and just feels like cheap takeout At very inflated prices Food services hours are very limited Bar shuts at 10 You can’t get anything to eat all afternoon not even room service Room service ends early Not 24 hours Makes it challenging for the visitors who are coming to this area from all over North America and internationallyThe building itself has good bones and the location is fantastic right on the water with a great outdoor patio But a significant lift and investment in refurbishing the physical premises and an improving food and beverage hours and quality and adding the amenities that business travellers expect would raise the status of this property But for now it does not justify the price as it chargesAlthough this is the most convenient location when I come to the area, I won’t be staying here again unless there’s a significant refresh

This place was AMAZING Service was excellent Everyone very friendly

Beautiful condo, fireplace, master bedroom was what dreams are made of Free coffee in lounge Filtered ph balanced water machine for refillable water bottles Definitely a must stay Oh and shopping and restaurants in building and a short walk away from pier and much more

Tammy Parashis

A dream come true property, this is what service is all about The team at the Fairmont Heritage Place will delight your soulOutstanding 5 star experience

The service was impeccable from all staff members Initially, we only booked for a 2 week stay and kept extending, for another 5 months while we were remodeling our home We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom suite with high end amenities, including a full kitchen and washer and dryer in every residence, which is very difficult to find in San Francisco Along with my family being extremely happy with our stay, our dog had a fabulous time as well, as they are pet friendly and supplied him with a dog bed, dog bowls, and dog treats The doorman loved to give him treats as we would come and goBesides staying in luxury, you are in a prime and safe location, just upstairs from Ghirardelli Square You are also in close walking distance from Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, Fort Mason, and the Marina DistrictThe Mustard Terrace was our favorite part of the hotel It has spectacular views of Alcatraz, the bay and the world’s famous Ghirardelli sign above We loved hanging out on the comfy outdoor couches by the fire pit, day or night The hotel also offers a complimentary generous wine and cheese hour every Wednesday and Friday which was a wonderful perkWe can’t thank the entire staff enough who went out of their way to make our stay feel like home I can honestly say, the staff treated everyone like family! A few of them are Marco, Stephen, Aziz, Ryan, YuMi, Jean, Jason, Jeff, Asim, Lucia, Michelle, Johnson, Byron, The housekeeping team, Dallas, Karina, and Sarah And of course the managers Jonathan, Dan, and Jessica

Brandon Milton

We stayed here for two nights to do typical tourist things around San Francisco My family and I loved it! We were four adults (one couple, two singles) and the 2 bedroom apartment was plenty big enough with 2 beds and the sofabed Everything was clean and comfortable

We had a “city view” which faced Polk, but we could still see a bit of the bayWe also enjoyed the lounge areas outside with fire pits – although we couldn’t figure out how to start the fire pit on the second floorThe staff and service were great – everyone was friendly, we never once had to open the hotel’s main door, and we had someone check-in with us every day via text messageThere were only three cons IMO:1 We got lost when first checking in! The main entrance is on North Point/Polk You cannot access the lobby from Ghirardelli Square until you’ve checked in2 I wish the hotel room had some snacks For only two nights, we had a fridge/stove/oven, but no food! If we were staying for longer, we definitely would have grocery shopped3 During our second night (Sunday night), there was some street noise that was very loud and woke us up I think it was trash trucks In general the room had good noise insulation, but for some reason these trucks were LOUD!

The rooms were plenty spacious and modern We had a tenth floor room with a view of North Hollywood and it was great The property is clean and the service is top notch

Easy to get to and plenty of parking A great place to stay if you are going to Universal Studios and the city walk, very close and a convenient walk The concierge gave us plenty of good tips and advice as well as got us our Universal tickets The elevators are a bit slow would be my only complaint But overall a great stay and very attentive staff

Loved our stay at Sheraton We surprised our boys with this trip, as it was the first time for the kids to visit Universal Studios, and we wanted to make it extra special by staying in Sheraton, we are so happy with our choiceCustomer Service: Everyone was friendly and nice, and Jerry did a great job in our Check-in process, and explaining everything

We wanted to try the food at their restaurant and Justin was super nice and amazing with his exceptional customer serviceRoom: clean and nice It has everything you need and EXCELLENT coffee Very clean and modern furnitureLocation: absolutely great location if you are going to Universal Studios, it is a walking distance and they have shuttle We can’t ask for better than that 🤗We will stay here next time 😊

Dave Aldridge

It had been awhile since staying here and since there has been a wonderful update to the hotel The hotel is beautiful and welcoming Located within walking distance to Universal attractions (although they do offer a free shuttle)

The room I enjoyed was large, comfortable and clean Every staff member was extremely friendly and helpful I ate breakfast in the restaurant by the pool and the food was very good and the staff attentive This hotel is underrated in my opinion It is a 4 star plus, if not 5!

Jaya Shenti

Absolutely excellent stay The hotel is beautiful- a good size, has enough variety without being a huge resort The standard is consistently excellent throughout from the staff to the decor to the dining

I don’t think you can honestly fault a thing The staff are all so pleased to serve you and they always say yes! Nothing is too much and you are made to feel comfortable from the moment you arrive This is exactly how a hotel should be run and this is exactly how it feels when somewhere ‘gets it right’If you book to stay here, you won’t regret it and you won’t even think about the price It is worth every penny

Herah Syesy

I am so excited to try this new restaurant! The food here is amazing and they have many options for any dietary need Plus, the service has been great I feel like a king when I walk in with my friends or family after work because of how much attention we get from staff members who take care of us well

While prices may seem steep at first glance, they match how the food was delectable and worth every penny

Steve Jones

This is a beautiful hotel Our room with two Queens was spacious, well-appointed and aesthetically very well conceived and executed But, what really struck me over three-nights of this leisure stay was the ample staffing (finding most hotels still understaffed) and the consistently high-level of attentiveness across the range of service providers: front desk, valets, bellmen, pool attendants, waiters—everyone was engaged without being intrusive

The management team is to be commended for creating a service culture consistently producing excellence

Such an Exquisite Hotel and Grandeur presence Entire hotel immaculate and rooms are well appointed I like that the sink is outside/separate of the shower and toilet area

The shutter that divides the two beds is a genius idea The decor is elegant and traditional but yet felt modern The room size was massive for a standard double room It felt like a 500 sq ft room The coffee in the room was very goodUnfortunately, we only stayed one day and arrived late so we didn’t get to eat at the restaurant or enjoyed the outside courtyard nor the many areas to explore and to just relax and soak in the atmosphere We did, however, get to enjoy the fireplace while having a late night snack I would highly recommend eating at the restaurant as the food smelled heavenly Additionally, there are many shopping centers/plaza across the street which we didn’t get to take advantage of as well The entire area is completely safe and very well lit as it is a very lively town The hotel does have a private parking for a fee I will definitely come back and stay longer

Ayres Hotel is comfortable and homely Staff are friendly and we loved the pool and spa Rooms were serviced daily and everything was spotlessly clean and today

Location is good, next time I would ask for a room not overlooking the freeway Stayed here with my husband and adult son Plenty of room for the three of us and privacy between the beds and the shutters were a great idea We will be back!

Lynne Henley

The employee that was on the desk the night of my arrival was very professional and he greeted me with a sincere and warm welcome I was so exhausted from the work day, that he had to literally verbally guide me to my room The room was exceptionally clean throughout which made the night very relaxing for me

I will truly recommend this hotel to my guest and use it again for local retreats

This was a lovely hotel with amazing amenities The fitness center is free to use if you’re staying at the hotel, and it’s not your standard hotel gym The fitness center is essentially its own full blown gym, with a great pool to boot

Rooms are clean with a lot of space The only thing that was off was the cleaning staff kept asking when we were leaving so they can clean the room despite us having late checkout

Rodney Ibrahim

Stayed 3 nights here while in town for some meetings Everyone in the area knows about this hotel because of the gym which is attached to the hotel The hotel is in a good area with a parking garage next door which is $27 a day

Rooms were a good size with very comfortable beds However there a few things that could use improvement First, the bathroom was very dimly lit Would help if there was a light in the actual shower Also there was no safe in the room There may be one in the room but I didn’t see oneIf you’re a gym person, the gym is legit Has most types of equipment along with nice locker room with steam, sauna, and jacuzzi They also have a nice lap pool outsideThe bar and restaurant are good and there is happy hour starting around 4 which is fun to take advantage of The food at the restaurant was actually quite good If I’m in the area I’ll be back here


I have no patience with being charged full price and then getting the “no service” speech upon check in! They claim staffing issues…Additionally, I noticed that the two complimentary waters that come with every Marriott property on planet earth were not in my room I called the front desk and they said I had to come down to get them Irritating, but fine

But then it was like trying to convince a toddler to share their Tonka truck when I asked for more water since there was no daily service to replenish them He told me I could come back to the lobby and refill them at the water stationLook… I hate giving bad reviews Most of mine are positive However, my recent streak with Marriott brands is making me question my loyalty!Anyway… this is a great gym with a waterless hotel with no service attached… the tacos were pretty good too…

We love the JW Marriott brand This hotel does not meet expectations The rooms are average

We were advised upon check-in that the housecleaning service would only be offered every three days We cannot imagine any luxury hotel advising guests that their room will only be cleaned every three days Unthinkable There is no executive lounge and the meal service is minimal The manager did offer us free drinks at the hotel bar to make up for the lack of the lounge At $450/night average, we can think of many better hotels more deserving of our patronage When we return to Santa Monica, we will not return to this hotel

Peter Weiss

Good hotel close to (across the street) from Santa Monica beach Nice rooms, ours had a huge deckHotel staff was very friendly, especially the desk and valets

EV Charger in the garage (free for guests…really included in the parking charge), which was greatGetting Room service was a convoluted mess, menu online was out of date, needed a QR code from the amenity binder that we didn’t have, so had to go to the desk to get the code Selections were fairly limited and price was fairly high

Jess G

This is not a 5 star hotel-it is outdated The drain was clogged and the light around the mirror was out The TV is so far away from the bed-we had the King bed

Food is not great My daughter had a chicken sandwich $25 and it made her sick-Eduardo who is REALLY great took it off the bill!! He in fact went and found me a Coke-they only have Pepsi (yuck)!!! They don’t even have guacamole and chips!! Lol Eduardo is your guy!! Excellent customer service! Benny the manager was great too!! Everyone was really nice there! Love hate relationship with the Valet-they charge you $55 a day but you are tipping every single time you are coming and going-so it ends up at $110+ a day or really whenever you get your car I wouldn’t stay here again! Marriott gave me 15k miles to make up for it-but I definitely think the Residence Inn would of been better

Suzy Keidel

Great location for the conference Food served during conference was good; however, limited options for non-meat eaters especially for breakfast No non meat protein options

The only other critique is placing water bottles in rooms only available for special members otherwise there is a charge Why not provide water at check in to these members rather than those of us not at the same level of membership seeing the water is not for us in the room? Not very welcoming

Jenn Thompson

This hotel is in need of some serious updating The furniture is old, and the bathrooms are outdated with patch up work and peeling wallpaper The hallways are very loud – doors slam, so your morning comfort depends on how early your neighbors decide to start their days

The location is great and having the market downstairs is nice The rooms seemed to be cleaned well It’s definitely not as upscale as the pictures and reviews make you think

Antonio Ly

I typically do not write reviews, but my experience at this Hyatt was poor, which is sad because Hyatt has always been a go to for me when travelling We arrived late at night only to discover right before bed that our toilet did not work After calling the front desk to report the issue, we went downstairs to the front desk (at midnight) to switch rooms

We went up to our new room to find the toilet leaking, and there were no toiletry items such as q-tips and cotton pads in our new room We reported the issue and requested compensation The hotel told us they would get back to us After hearing no response the next day, we followed up and were offered a $100 dining credit to be used at the hotel (where rooms service closes at 10pm), which was worthless to us because we did not plan on dining at the hotel However, that was what they could offer so we accepted and ordered room service When we checked out, they charged us the full amount for the room service, and did not consider out $100 credit We had to follow up to be refunded Overall, whilst the employees were polite in their handling of the matter, the service received was poor which was very disappointing for a 4 star Hyatt

I did not stay too much in this hotel but it was right in the heart of the gaslamp district All the employees were very friendly and welcoming The one thing I really liked about the hotel was the rooftop bar

If you’re a fan of old fashion, theirs was on point I was never a big fan of them until I tried it here The restaurant does get pretty crowded Valet is $50 and it’s about the same for self parking I did self parking the first night for $25 thinking it would be cheaper but the parking garage charged me another $25 for a new day at 6am

Alexandra Klimek

The hotel is nice but very cramped My room was very small, view was 360 degrees of concrete building walls There were no common areas to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather other than the rooftop bar

I did try to visit but it was quite loudThere are a lot of displaced people living in this area of San Diego and if you go 1-2 blocks in any direction of the hotel you will notice this I was staying alone and did not feel very safe parking offsite but valet was $54/dayIt was a good location as far as being close to things but I did not feel safe to wander about and couldn’t really hang out at the hotel except in my room

Melinda Lynch

Our little family had a great stay We felt welcomed by all the employees we encountered The front desk team were great to work with and took good care of selecting a room for us

The hotel was clean and as expected The location was very close to Petco Park, which is why we stayed there I will say that the Gaslamp Quarter is not the best location for a long stay with kids, as it is an area with a lot of bars/clubs/restaurants The hotel worked great for our family’s one night trip to the baseball game

It is hard to beat the location of the hotel Right at the waterfront, with a spectacular view all around The hotel looks new, well maintained

The rooms are a good size, quite The beds feels old, mine were slanted My one complaint was the shower is slow, and it takes a while to finish The AC on the other hand works perfectlyThe team running the hotel is great

John S

A couple shots of and from the place But this was probably one of the most convenient hotels I’ve ever stayed in You’re able to walk to and from very easily and they have a bunch of great food and drink options right at the hotel

One weird thing was, water was not free unless you bring an empty water bottle and use one of their refill stations near the bathrooms on the main level but they do not provide water in the roomsOther than that it’s a great place to stay The pool was great and all the food we had “on campus” was delicious, especially for a hotel There is a daily destination fee that they charge but that provides you a $15 credit that can be used at the hotels restaurants and convenience store It also include a free 1 hour bike or kayak rental from the place a few minutes down the boardwalk AND a daily free shuttle ride to and from Coronado Beach

Eva Garcia

Very nice clean hotel The bed was very comfy I loved the pool and elevators

AC worked really well Good walking distance to Gaslamp Quarter and stadium The only down side was all the additional fees I had to pay There is a fee for parking at hotel you already pay a good amount of money to stay at, the parking should be included with your stay

My experience at the Hilton Union Square has been flawless I was nervous arriving as I knew the hotel was sold out for this week’s conference Check in was easy and quick, and I received early access to my room

The room was spotless I want to give huge kudos to the housekeeping team – even if I was gone for just a short period of time, they would somehow know I was gone and use that opportunity to clean my room before I came backWith hotels still feeling the effects of the pandemic – especially when it comes to lack of staff – I was truly surprised by how seamless this hotel experience was HIGHLY recommended!!! I will definitely be staying here when I come back to San Francisco

Prince Nyatanga

Enjoyed stay! Views in the rooms are spectacular Smell in the lobby is pleasant, however in the room there was a musty not so welcoming smell Staff was lovely, enjoyed drinks at the lobby and the staff was great there too

Had a drink on the city scape bar one night – views there are just phenomenal!!! Location of hotel is on the edge of the pleasant and not so pleasant area of San Francisco But in general, all good A HUGE plus is that there are a bunch of rental car agencies all within a block away I recommend Hertz greatly – and if you can get an electric car to explore areas around including parks over the Golden Gate Bridge

Bri Hurley

Nice hotel with a pretty lobby and rooftop lounge The room was nice and clean, though I felt like I couldn’t get the temperature in my room cool enough no matter how I set the thermostat The hotel is in a good walking distance to most things

This could be a San Francisco thing or maybe the hotel placement, but it was very glaring that one side of the hotels neighborhood was encouraged to avoid at all costs The hotel was placed in a weird area that could go very scary or very nice The location to near by attractions was nice though if you’re down for walkingI had an excellent view from my room The room was spacious and clean The staff was friendly and helpful as well

We just ended our four day stay at the resort and I can say that has been one of the most stunning and impeccable resorts we have stayed at Everything from the service to the amenities and staff and scenery were amazing We were traveling with two young kids and the staff made sure we had everything we needed and supplied us with bath necessities , toys, cribs, pack and plays and a diaper pail

They really thought of everything Everything was so convenient and easy thanks to the amazing staff and their attention to detail I would love to come back for another stay and will be recommending this resort to our family and friends!

Kevin Welch

This resort is truly heaven on earth Is it expensive? Yes Is it worth it? Absolutely

I have stayed here with my family on multiple occasions and have yet to see the level of customer service we’ve received anywhere else The hotel is beautiful and the property is beautiful as well The staff is always so helpful and accommodating and our family will continue to book future stays here

Bekki Johnson Chapman

One of my favorite OC spas Open to locals Monday-Thursday, so every federal holiday that lands on a Monday in 2022, I’ve been there! It’s a great, welcoming, relaxing environmentThey have you pay when you check in, so after your services, when you’re all relaxed and blissful, you don’t have to think about the administrative stuff

The locker room, waiting area, dressing rooms, showers, and vanities are immaculately appointed and comfortableI’ve only had facials here and each time I leave feeling fresh, moisturized, and pampered It’s the best
