I recently stayed over for one night, however, the hotel is wonderful. I had requested for the online upgrades and both were applied when I arrived. I was a little sad my original room wasn't ready by the time I arrived, however I still got everything I hoped for. The texting service is awesome! I suggest incorporating that in all... More

This is a very beautiful hotel with wonderful staff. We had a car and it was 38$ with in and out privileges. The rooms were clean, comfortable bed and nice showers. We did not get to use their pool but heard it was heated. It is a good drive from attractions to around san diego but we did not mind... More

The hotel was EXTREMELY busy due to the Taylor Swift concert event at the nearby stadium. But as busy as it was, hotel staff and appearance was very nice. All hotel personnel that I encountered during my stay were very friendly,courteous, and helpful especially under the heavy guest traffic.

First of all, every single employee we encountered was very pleasant, helpful, and genuinely nice. We received quick service when we needed a cab, our bags unloaded/loaded, drinks and food served. Some downers: The one bed in our room was neither a King or Queen size; we fully expected a king, and got something maybe 3 or 4 inches larger... More

The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel itself was beautiful. Everyone is courteous and helpful. The grounds were well kept and the pool water warm and inviting. overall-great atmosphere. Great walkway along the bay and beautiful. Clean and close to everything. Only downside was the food, which was ordinary at best at high prices. Good part is there are... More

Recently stayed at the Hilton Bayfront for a conference. The location cannot be beat --beautiful views and walking distance to the Gaslamp District. This hotel touts a four Diamond rating but given the rooms are pretty standard and the food was just okay, would say there's opportunity to improve. I'm a HHonors member which offers a benefit of "free internet"... More

I loved staying at Hilton. The hotel is just perfect with the rooms and stay but the location is terrific. It is at the start of this 4 mile long bayfront which is amazing!! Do try out the poolside bar where they service some good food in addition to the drinks!

Stayed here for a conference and was very convenient. Clean rooms, helpful staff, and fantastic on-site parking (someone complained of the price, but closer and cheaper than most other hotel parking I have experienced). Was really pleased with how accommodating the hotel was: provided crib, microwave and fridge (all had to be brought into the room for us) since we... More

Bring your cash, raise your credit limits. Wow. I'm all about paying for quality accommodations and excellent service, but this hotel is nothing special. I've stayed at better Holiday Inns. I stayed here because my company's conference was held at the hotel. Simply put, this hotel takes advantage of attendees. They gouge you for everything. I came a day early,... More
