Nicely styled, contemporary, really well maintained property, large but friendly, beautiful location on the bay with sweeping views from most rooms, and a quick walk to Petco Park for Padres games. With the nice pool area and outside bar, feels like an in-town resort. Easy walk to downtown hotspots like the Gaslamp district and bayfront restaurants, access to great running... More

This hotel seems better fitted for guests who came to party in the Gas Lamp district considering the loud pop music constantly blaring in the lobby, but the great pool makes up for it! Next door to the convention center, across the street from the Padres' stadium, and adjacent to the Coronado Bridge, the Hilton Bayfront is in a great... More

We wanted to be close to airport, so chose the Bayfront as an end of vacation place. Our reserved room with 2 queens was overbooked, so we ended up with 1 king and 1 room with 2 doubles that were adjoining (at no extra charge) so we ended up with a better stay. Kids had their room, we had ours.... More

This is an average hotel for a Hilton. No real complaints but then nothing special either. If I were to come again I would probably stay across the street at the Omni. On more than one day we had to ask for extra towels as they only left two, one for me and one for my wife. Because we work... More

The view was amazing overlooking San Diego Bay and the bridge to Coronado Island. It sits right on the waterfront and is near EVERYTHING. A stone throw from Petco Park where the Padres play and the bars at the Gaslamp district. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Valet parking was outrageous but we simply parked ourselves after the first... More

Hotel is ideally located next to the convention centre and also within walking distance to the Gaslamp Quarter & Petco Park. Hotel is clean with great refurbished rooms and if you can get a room overlooking the bay it offers great views of the US Navy ships coming into the harbor, especially if you are traveling with kids.

Really nothing special, but acceptable if you are in San Diego. Do not look fir an exceptional experience. Very pedestrian hotel with very high prices. Service in pool bar is very weak. Fitness facilities are good, not excellent.
