After doing some research, I settled on the Hilton Resort and Spa San Diego on Mission Bay. I like Hilton Hotels because I stay on their properties a lot for work, so I get reward points through their Hilton Honors Program, and also because this particular property was located extremely close to just about all of the attractions we wanted to visit!
When we arrived at our hotel, I noticed how beautiful it was, sitting right on the water on Mission Bay! We had a great view of the bay and the resort from our room, and we could also see SeaWorld in the distance. I had booked a Deluxe King Bayview Tower room, and I was not disappointed! Our room was quite large and bright, and it had a balcony. There was plenty of room for all of our gear and Sara's Pack N Play. Sara loved being able to use the bench at the foot of the bed to climb up, and it was low enough that I wasn't afraid that she'd fall off. She was also a huge fan of the balcony, and she loved sitting out there watching all of the activity and playing!

Checking in was quite easy, and after getting our room keys, the resort staff told us about all of the activities going on, and there were many! Each day, all of the activities were posted in front of the lobby for reference as well. The evening we arrived, they were hosting Smores on the Beach, which I thought would be perfect to take Sara to so that she could unwind from our flight. There was also a shop on site, right behind the main lobby, which stocked food items, clothing, and anything else you might need.

The first full day that we were there, I went out on my own while Mark and Sara napped, and enjoyed happy hour at the Olive Lounge. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented, and they had an extensive selections of drinks to choose from!
