Cheers.
Yes, I think so. But I used the food credits on dinner.

The 11 AM time surprises me too as I cannot think of a Hilton or affiliate I've stayed in that has a check out time other than Noon. I did cancel a stay at a Las Vegas Hilton Vacation Club or whatever they call it that had a 10 AM Check Out Time.

They probably need to start some guaranteed late check out times for Gold/Diamond like Hyatt has, even if the quantity is limited per year.
They did, indeed, charge for parking a decade or more ago.

Very few, if any, hotels charged "resort fees" before ~ 1995, in my recollection.

Has anyone stayed in the "COASTAL GOLF VIEW TERRACE SUITE" or "COASTAL VIEW VISTA SUITE"?

Both have very large (400 sq ft) terraces and look pretty cool.

I just happened to look here for an upcoming stay and it seems that the daily credit (wasn't it like $10) has now been removed from the perks for the Resort Charge. But, of course, the Resort Charge was not reduced

Cheers.
DiverDave and happychic like this.

There is free parking on Callan Rd and N torrey pines pl. you can walk 5 minutes along N Torrey pines rd to the hotel, he last day I figured how to cut through the Lodge at Torrey pines to the golf course to the hilton.

A bit of a hike (10 minutes along concrete road) to the trailhead in the park to the beach, but at least you don't have to worry about finding parking.

I parked across the street around 2003 and May 2013 with no problem. The hiking trails there are beautiful.
