If you have an ounce of adventure in your heart, take your pick: a pedestrian bridge links the hotel to Hazard Center’s mix of shops and restaurants. The adjacent trolley stop connects you to the aquatic life at Sea World, the safari life at the San Diego Zoo, the sun and splash life at a beautiful nearby beach, or the shopping life at the Bazaar Del Mundo in picturesque Old Town. Then stop by for dinner in Little Italy, or even catch a game at Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres baseball team), and don't forget to take in the Gaslamp Quarter with its variety of restaurants and nightlife.

Our hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego - Mission Valley is located 8 miles from San Diego International Airport/Lindbergh Field and across from the Hazard Center Trolley Station. You are also within walking distance of Fashion Valley Mall, the largest mall in San Diego, via a walk/bike path.
