California coasting: Affordable luxury in the heart of San Diego

AS far as American cities go, San Diego is right out of a postcard. Located on the pacific fringe of California, “America’s Finest City” is replete with gorgeous shorelines, an ever-ready supply of sunshine and blue skies, and a lively dining and shopping scene.

Whether for business or leisure, one of the best hotels to experience the magic of San Diego is DoubleTree by Hilton San Diego Hotel Circle, a stylish, modern, and affordable option in center of San Diego, minutes away from every major attractions including Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Gaslamp Quarter, and all of San Diego’s famous beaches. As a bonus, it’s only 10 minutes away from the San Diego International Airport.

Arguably the best thing about the property is its vicinity, which is home to some of the city’s most-visited attractions including a myriad of beaches, world-class restaurants, and entertainment centers. If you’re traveling with kids, keep them occupied at the likes of Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld San Diego, LEGOLAND California Resort, and Seaport Village.

While easy to overlook, San Diego has plenty to offer in terms of art and culture. Don’t miss out on visiting Old Town San Diego, California’s first settlement with only a mission and a fort, the Spanish Village Art Center filled with historic working studios, and the USS Midway Museum for a fun aviation-themed adventure for the whole family.

If you prefer to stay in, you can relax, retreat and rejuvenate at the hotel’s resort-like pool. Featuring sunny days year-around, you can relax on a lounge chair, take a dip in the pool, destress in the Jacuzzi, or enjoy evening cocktails at the pool-side fire-pit.  

For a taste of San Diego, try the newly launched SeaGlass featuring California coastal cuisine where you can enjoy from craft beers and hefty burgers to delicious tacos, and healthy salads. After a day’s worth of exploring, unwind with the daily happy hours at the bar; it’s also worth trying out many of San Diego’s homegrown craft beer labels for a more local experience. If you’re tired after a long day out, simply call room service for in-room dining or step into the 24-hour Market Place for a wide selection.

Families and business travelers alike will get a comfortable night’s sleep at the many guestrooms and suites, all which include a balcony with panoramic views, a working desk with an ergonomic chair, a 55-inch TV, a sofa bed, a shower/tub combination with a range of luxury Crabtree & Evelyn bath products, and coffee and tea-making facilities.

All rooms strike the ideal balance between comfort and affordability, leaving you with more to spend on dining and shopping. But if you want to splash out a bit more on your room, the family-style suites are immensely spacious and comfortable, and come with a separate space for kids to play – all the better to keep restlessness at bay.

Parents with kids need not worry about child-friendly amenities and services; high chairs, cribs, family packages, and children’s menus are available. This means that parents can sit back and enjoy the breezy vibes of San Diego without stressing over their kids’ comfort.

For all travelers, the hotel offers convenient amenities such as a 24-hour Market Place gift shop, business center, express mail, 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, full catering services, audio-visual equipment rental, video conferencing services, and printing/faxing services are available on demand.
