Stayed for a week for a conference at the convention centre. A very enjoyable stay; room [a corner room with great bay views] was attractive and well appointed. Staff helpful but not obtrusive. Good range of eating options and especially enjoyed the pool bar. Longish wait for a breakfast seat on two of the days was a bit of a... More

Beautiful hotel, within walking distance to Gaslamp district, Petco park, convention centre and USS Midway. We paid a minimal fee for a room upgrade to the top floor. The view was amazing! The room was spacious and clean. The hotel has a huge lobby with bar, great for having a pre dinner drink. Enjoyed our stay here.

Staying at the Hilton Bay Front was an excellent experience. The staff was the most helpful of any hotel I have stayed at. The location is fabulous! Not only is the area around the hotel beautiful, it is close walking distance to several forms of transportation to get you where you would want to go all over the city. I... More

This was a very nice hotel and we had an upper floor corner room overlooking the San Diego Bay. We had excellent views of the bridge going to Coronado Island and also were able to watch the unloading of a Dole banana container ship. It was very interesting to watch the choregraphing of the trucks and crane operator in unloading... More

While the hotel itself is ok, the room quality and cleanliness is hit or miss. Some rooms are dirty and gross, others are clean. food choices are limited, the gym is almost non existent, except for tons of cardio equipment, they charge ridiculous prices to receive any packages you paid for to be sent to yourself, the list goes on....

The soft drinks and snacks in the gift shop and vending machine are way over priced. And in other Hiltons, the in room bottled water is free for Hilton Honor guests. Room was nice, great view of the Dole cargo ship.

A single night stay for a meeting held at the hotel. The room comfort was excellent and up to Hilton standard. I had a view of the bay and noise was not an issue. The connection center and petco baseball park are close and walkable - so is the gaslight district but it would probably take 20 minutes to get... More

We stayed here last weekend due to a convention at the Hotel and found this hotel to be better than other Hilton Hotels we have stayed at, although it still has some of the same drawbacks we have found at other Hilton Hotels. On check in, the staff was very nice and helpful. However, despite having reserved and prepaid two... More

I stayed at the Hilton Bayfront on a weekend in early March and had a fabulous experience. I really needed a relaxing day at the pool and my expectations were greatly exceeded. I stayed in a cabana which was incredibly worth the extra cost as Patrick was extremely attentive and provided anything we had asked for. Also, the padded chairs... More
