I just attended a conference at the hotel, so my perspective is different than that of a tourist. Common areas have an attractive, contemporary, pleasant nautical theme, without appearing hokey. Limited lobby for impromptu conversations – this is really a conference hotel, located literally across the street from the convention center. 10 minute Uber ride from and to the airport.... More

When in San Diego we try to stay at the Hilton Bayfront, It is a fairly new property on the water at the south end of the convention center and a short walk from the Gaslamp district, plenty of restaurants and social establishments and right next to the stadium

The rooms are fresh and new but not that large. The location is gorgeous right on the bay. It has an ok pool area (very clean and well maintained) but the pool is pretty small for the size of the hotel. It was always crowded. The pool menu is limited and the food took ages to come out. Service was... More

I spent my birthday here and I had the most incredible time. El Nino hit the San Diego Area hard during my stay but, I still managed to enjoy this beautiful property!

Close to convention center and great for socializing and connecting in the many areas to do so. Starbucks required going outside but that isn't a problem in San Diego! Lovey ambience & would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel right on the water and adjacent to the Convention Center and PetCo Park! Prime location with first class service. The pool bar is comfortable with couches and fireplaces scattered around. It's a great place to relax with friends.

We were here for a convention. Nice place. The food was good and the room was put together so nice. I have a gluten allergy and they were easy to work with. Nice bars and the hotel is in a great location. Right next to Gas Lamp area of San Diego

Be aware of student conventions! What should have been a nice & relaxing family get together for Thanksgiving turned into an awkward & unpleasant maneuvering through the hotel without a chance of relaxing & enjoying the company of the loved ones. The moment we’ve arrived to the parking lot, and saw that there were almost no parking spaces, we knew... More
