First of all, big shout out to the hotel staff - all are so friendly and welcoming! I had an issue with my first room which had a really bad smell, and was assigned a new room quickly. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and apologized for the inconvenience several times. The new room was clean. The...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 July 2016

I 'discovered' this hotel when I couldn't book in hotels further south in La Jolla in the high season - and am glad I did!. I stayed overnight here and was impressed by the friendly desk staff (thanks, Ally, Amanda, Rianna and Parris) as well as the comfort and cleanliness of the room. Returning to the hotel at 9:50 pm,...

This is an awesome place to stay. Came in on the holiday weekend and was going to have to stay an extra day. Called while we were on the road and they were able to accommodate us. The staff was top notch from the front desk, to the bar, to the deli and to the housekeeping staff. Ordered a pizza...

Hilton Garden is a solid place to stay -- good sized, clean rooms and good location. But this review is about the Del Mar location's secret weapon: Zenobia! She is awesome. When I forgot several personal items, she was there. When I needed dry cleaning, she took the time to call a local dry cleaner to help me with my...

If I was just rating the hotel staff, this would be a 5-star review. The friendliest, most personable HGI, and really any hotel, staff around. Indeed, Zenobia is amazing and so welcoming and personable when you arrive. The GMs also quite friendly and engaging as well. Restaurant staff also cheerful, helpful and overall nice. Free parking is also a huge...

Dear hotelreviewer333- thank you for letting us know about your recent experience. I am sorry that guest noise ruined your stay. I wish that was an easy fix. As far as the syrup, this is the first time anyone has ever brought it up. If we get repeat comments on this, we will look at making a change. I can...

Stayed for a business trip. Lots of hair in the bathroom, a saggy bed, a TV that had audio but no picture, and most strangely, bedside lamp that literally had the power switch stolen - just a hole in the side of the lamp. May be time to refresh this hotel's amenities.

While the hotel is in need of updating, and there were a few issues that took a bit more time than I would have expected to get resolved, the highlight of this hotel is Zenobia. Her follow up, genuine caring, & kindness were the reason we stayed.

This is a very convenient location: near the beach and close to excellent restaurants and necessity shopping. The service from the staff couldn't be better. Breakfast is also a cut above the usual Hilton Garden fare. Very pleasant stay.
