We met friends yesterday at the Hilton on San Diego Bay. We were pleasently suprised with the design and the open plan of the lobby. We decided to go to the lobby bar, Odysea, on the 3rd floor. From 4-7pm they have happy hour, we had a margaritas for 5 dollars and their bar food menu is 1/2 price. Hamburgers with manchego and grilled onions and fries for 6.50.
They offer many outside areas with in the bar, some have oversized umbrellas and other areas are shaded. We sat outside and it was great.
They also validate for self parking for 3 hours.
