    About

    Experience a tranquil, newly reimagined hideaway at Hotel Karlan San Diego – a DoubleTree by Hilton. Enjoy a warm welcome with our delicious, signature chocolate chip cookie upon arrival. Hotel Karlan’s new design brings a touch of nature indoors and provides guests with a refined, yet relaxing experience. Located less than 25 minutes north of San Diego International Airport (SAN), within minutes from several world-class golf courses, our hotel is nestled in the foothills of the striking Black Mountains. Set among rolling hills, palm trees and green fairways, our hotel near San Diego is just off the 15 and 56 freeways. We’re minutes from several large corporations in the Rancho Bernardo area, close to popular attractions including LEGOLAND® California, SeaWorld® San Diego and the pristine San Diego Beaches. Enjoy an excellent range of activities to keep the whole family entertained. Schedule our complimentary shuttle service for roundtrip transportation to nearby Carmel Mountain Ranch golf course, play a game of tennis or swim in one of our two outdoor pools. Unwind and experience the tranquility of our all-new spa facility, or work out in the fitness center offering free weights, classes and a lap pool. Savor a delicious meal at our brand new Asado grill featuring a delightful array of sustainable seafood and gourmet culinary creations. Relax in a spacious guest room, admiring beautiful views from your private balcony or patio. Host a meeting or event in one of our indoor/outdoor spaces.
