Tropical Resort on the Edge of Mission Bay

Urban Oasis

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and next to the sandy beaches of San Diego’s famous Mission Bay, the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa is centrally located near San Diego’s many charms and recreational activities. Six miles from the San Diego International Airport, the hotel provides easy access to I-5, but the hotel is secluded on 18-acres of natural beauty next to Mission Bay. The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa is also near downtown San Diego’s many eating, shopping, and entertainment destinations of the famous Gaslamp Quarter, only a short 12-minute drive.

A Recreational Paradise with Mediterranean Ambiance

The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa provides plenty of on-site recreational activities for guests to take part in. The hotel hosts daily Mission Bay water tours by kayak, jet ski, or paddleboard. The hotel also rents bikes and Segways for guests to explore the nearby boardwalk and local beaches. Guests can also play tennis on one of the five championship courts, unwind next to the hotel’s beautiful lagoon-style pool, or indulge in spa services at the full-service Mantra Spa.

The hotel also offers seasonal live music for guests to enjoy while overlooking the water. For convenient dining, the hotel features an on-site restaurant, Acqua, offering al fresco dining and breathtaking views of the bay.

The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa features Mediterranean-inspired decor and ambiance throughout the hotel. Each room features an open-aired layout that complements the sunshine, warm temperatures, and gentle bay breezes the hotel enjoys year-round. Each room also features private balconies, designer furnishings, and premium bedding. Excellent for families, each room includes videogame consoles and a satellite LCD TV, allowing young ones to unwind after a day of fun on the water.

Downtown Access and Unlimited Water Activities

The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa is an urban waterfront oasis. Mission Bay offers guests a range of watersports activities, including boating, waterskiing, wind surfing, jet skiing, kite surfing, sailing and more. To accommodate your fun on the water, the resort and spa provides a full service marina. The hotel’s proximity to the Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego’s premier destination for dining, shopping, and nightlife, also offers guests easy access to many live music venues, boutique shops, and over 90 exquisite dining options. In addition, the hotel is only one mile away from SeaWorld, and the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service.

The Bottom Line

With its Mediterranean-inspired architecture, well-appointed rooms, and wealth of on-site recreational offerings, The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa is an excellent option for a fun-filled family vacation or a romantic getaway. According to many Hilton San Diego Resort spa reviews, the on-site Mantra Spa is a beautiful 7,500 square foot space with a range of indulgent spa services. Considering the hotel’s picturesque waterfront views, coupled with their on-site spa services, the The Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa may be an excellent option for honeymooners as well.
