The best thing about this place was the location. Our room was average and not as good as other hiltons we have stayed in. Didn't really meet any staff apart from check in & check out but they were helpful. Pool was too small for number of rooms and too crowded so we didn't use it.

Great location! Connects to Petco field and within walking distance of Gaslamp district. Beautiful view of harbor and Coronado bridge, but no beach access. Overall excellent service and welcoming and very helpful staff.

The San Diego Hilton is a HUGE hotel so if you are looking for cozy and private, this is not the hotel for you. Now, if you don't mind an hotel with 1200 or so guestrooms, you are going to be very happy with the accommodations. The room we stayed in was spacious, comfortable and had spectacular views of the...

Save yourself time money and aggrevation, stay at the Mariott on the same Block, much better food, ameneties and pool. Avoid this hotel. The breakfast is stale an umimpressive, the wifi disconnects all the time, they tried to overcharge me over and above the rate promised and emailed to me. I will not stay at another Hilton Hotel

The Hilton Bayfront is a top notch hotel in a perfect location for visiting San Diego right next to the convention center and an easy walk to the Gaslight district. The rooms have beautiful views of the bay. Service was excellent and personable.

We just finished a 4-night stay at this property. Family of four on a vacation. Pros: Location, for sure. And, it was surprisingly quiet considering how many rooms there are. The room was up to cleanliness expectations. Cons: if you think you can relax by the pool, think again! There are not enough chairs and no shade. I'd strongly recommend... More

We have stayed in San Diego many times over the years but won't return to the Hilton. There are good things here, but not many. If you are only interested in being within walking distance to Petco Park/ Gas LampQuarter this might be the place for you, if not read on... The parking situation here is crazy, the hotel doesn't...

This location left much to be desired. One man made the stay enjoyable. It is amazing no matter how a hotel brand may be its up to the staff to make it a great experience. Even though the corridors leave much to be desired a gentleman that saw our requests where not being handled took it upon himself to handle... More
