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.

I stayed at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront for business and thought it was in a really convenient location. The hotel is right next to the Convention Center and very close to a trolley stop and the Gaslamp Quarter with plenty of shops and restaurants. It is also next to Petco Park (Padres stadium) and is along a nice running/walking... More

Really close to the convention center and Gas Lamp. Nice pool, even one for kids, fitness center and lobby area. Awesome views. Can take run/walks at the door steps along the marina area. Clean rooms. Good for business and family trips.

When we made our reservation at Hilton we had an expectation that we would be satisfied with the service but unfortunately, it was very poor. The wifi is not free for their customers. When we checked-in the hotel, we had paid the amount with our credit card. However we saw that the hotel system had attempted to take different amounts... More

Pro’s The proximity to the conference center and ball park is great. The Fox bar has pretty good Moscow mules Con's the rooms are basic, nothing beyond a standard room you would get at a holiday inn express. Wifi download was 1.5mb on average.

We spent a week at this hotel this month. There is a lot to like about this place, including a location that is walking distance to the heart of downtown and the Gaslight district and to the Padre's stadium. However, it does have a certain sterility that always reminds you that you are not at home. And the restaurants are,in... More
