I am currently staying here for my upcoming wedding this weekend. I have booked five rooms for my friends and family. To say this hotel is basic would be an understatement. Each double room comes comfortably equipped with ONE cup, Because TWO would mean you won't be forced to buy their $3.25 bottled water when you realize late at night... More

The room and the view are as beautiful as you expect given what you pay for them. Don't expect to be welcomed as a Gold or Diamond member as all you're going to get is a paper bag at checkin containing 2 complimentary bottles of water. You'll get a good surprise the next day as well. The 'free continental breakfast'... More

At once a pleasant, fresh, rejuvenating Hilton property: located on the South side of the bay, actually beside the dock of DOLE containers loading station, with fine architecture, not very big but well furnitured rooms, a nice restaurant and a beautiful heated-pool area (only 119 occupants allowed, in a >1100 rooms hotel). Fine service in all compartments. Only short walk... More

Business trip I stayed at this hotel because I was attending a conference at the San Diego conference center. I would happily stay here with my family, but it seems that the main reason to stay here is for the proximity to the conference center (which is still a good 10 minute walk). The hotel It is a lovely new... More

I was truly touched and amazed by the staff at this Hilton property. During a busy conference, I misplaced my iphone. Upon letting the manager know, I was put in touch with housekeeping. Later that evening, I was contacted with information about how to pick up my phone in the morning. I was so grateful and relieved.

The Hotel is wonderfully close to Petco Park and an easy walk from Seaport Village, but not much else. We were extremely comfortable at this hotel. The room was generous in size, had a big view window with a big window sill to sit on and a chaise lounge to lounge at, which I did. About 5 restaurants to choose... More

Went on a trip for leisure to San Diego. This hotel was just what we needed. Good location with wonderful views of the bay from our room and the bar and pool area downstairs. You can walk to the gaslamp district for evening fun and entertainment too! Will definitely stay here again!

Everything about this hotel is overpriced for what is actually delivered. You are certainly paying for the location, but the rooms are BASIC, the pool is tiny with a crowded deck (and an unsightly view of the shipyard -- no sailboats here, folks), and the mediocre food is ridiculously priced. WiFi is spotty at best, too. Definitely request a bayfront... More

My favorite thing about this hotel were the many comfortable opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Even the pool bar area has a fire pit (it gets a bit chilly at night) with cushy seating overlooking the bay. Add good friends and your favorite drink and you're in paradise! The spa was wonderful too-- shoutout to Alicia who was just the... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the San Diego Bayfront Hilton. This hotel is quite busy, right next to the convention center, but we still received the best customer service. I don't know how they do it, but this was the most quiet hotel room I have ever slept in, and it wasn't because they weren't busy (the hotel was... More
