Located in the heart of San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter, the Hilton Gaslamp Hotel is surrounded by shopping, theater, art galleries and more than 100 restaurants and night clubs. They are directly across the street from the San Diego Convention Center, two blocks from Petco Park, three miles from San Diego International Airport.
An urban retreat in the midst of a booming downtown scene, Hilton Gaslamp is the closest hotel to the Convention Center, and lies just 5 blocks from Horton Plaza, an upscale shopping mall (which appears to have been designed by M.C. Escher) which features Macy’s, Nordstroms, and a movie theater.
Hilton Gaslamp’s New Leaf Restaurant & Lounge offers a global dining experience. The Executive Chef prepares contemporary world cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. A breakfast buffet is featured daily. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, and there’s Room Service from 6am-11pm.
The food we had was just delicious. From the scrumptious Hummus Appetizer, to main dishes like Herb Stuffed Chicken Breast, which came with a side of garlic mashed potatoes that was absolutely spectacular, to delectable deserts, such as Gourmet Sorbet With Fresh Berries - our palettes were treated like kings! A rare disappointment was a Chicken Artichoke Pesto Pasta, which was a bit light on chicken, while brimming with artichokes.
Hilton Gaslamp has a heated outside pool & whirlpool, teak sundeck & oversized lounge chairs, where we lounged poolside in the perfect San Diego spring weather. This sleek and stylish urban boutique hotel is located at the gateway to the Historic Gaslamp Quarter, the hub of downtown's nightlife scene. For the business traveler, they’re located in the heart of the downtown business district. There is Concierge Service.
Valet Parking is $32.00 USD, and valet parking is the only parking option, besides metered streets.
All rooms include one king or two double beds, over-stuffed chair with ottoman, coffee maker, down comforters and down pillow top mattresses, spacious work desk, two phones, each with two lines, complimentary high speed internet access, dataport and voicemail, 42" Flat screen T.V. with premium channels, and On-Command movie service. Unfortunately there was only one HBO, which seemed a bit outdated, and no Comedy Central! There was, however, access to a panoply of movies, some currently playing in theaters, for $13.99-$19.99 each.
The One-Bedroom Suites feature the same elegance of the deluxe rooms, plus a separate living area with a sofa bed, two 25'' TV's, large bathrooms, some with whirlpool tubs.
Hilton Gaslamp is flexible in terms of meeting and event space, with 5,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, and over 10,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space, perfect for ceremonies & receptions. See and be seen at Hilton’s outdoor fire pit.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to experience the Artesia Day Spa, a full service Day Spa & Salon located in the Hotel, which offers a full compliment of spa treatments, salon services, an assortment of wet treatments, and stone therapy. There’s also a 24 hour fitness room, which features Pre-Core equipment.
