Hotel was very clean .Staff was very helpful and friendly. Stayed here about two times and every time we stay we get a view of the Dole factory. For a 500 dollar room I'd wish we would get a great view.

Wonder why the price or points is so low for this hotel at Thanksgiving? They host over 3,000 kids over the holiday weekend!! We were not made aware and this made our holiday weekend a challenge to enjoy. All night kids are running down hallways with incredible noise. We could not enjoy the pool as it was overrun by hormone... More

The location of this hotel is excellent as it's just off the San Diego bay. There is a boardwalk outside the hotel that you can use to walk to Seaport Village which has restaurants and shops. The hotel is very close to the San Diego Convention Center, Petco Park, and the Gaslamp District. Service at the hotel was also excellent... More

I stayed here for business a few weeks ago and travel frequently for work. The Hilton Bayfront is a good choice for accessing Gaslamp district while being near water. My room had a nice view, and restaurants are good (not great). A few points: -Hotel has a slightly odd layout. Hard to access lower level from lobby without going outside.... More

This hotel is just south of the San Diego Convention Center and on the same side of the street, adjacent to the bay. The layout is sort of odd - driving or walking up to the lobby from the street, but the hotel is new constructed and well appointed, with a spacious open lobby and a nice lobby bar (although... More

San Diego has always been beautiful to me. Going for visits now, I want to capture the epitome of Southern California/San Diego. There is no place better than the Hilton Bayfront! We had the corner room and the view was amazing! Friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again!

We had a corner room high up and had a wonderful almost panoramic view of the bay and down town which we loved. The breakfast buffet was great and we got a 10.00 per person discount included as gold members which was great. Loved the food but there was only one omelet maker so if you were in a hurry... More

This Hotel is a first class operation. Great location on the bay. Very Modern, and many choices of restaurants. Night life is walking distance from the hotel. Excellent choice. The staff were very helpful and well informed about the happenings on property and nearby. I will make it a point to return again to this hotel.

I stayed here for business in late 2012, and enjoyed it quite a bit. When my wife and I decided to do a quick 3-day weekend getaway to San Diego I booked a room at the Hilton again. I spent a few extra bucks ($50/night) for a corner room. My previous standard room had decent views but I wanted a... More
