This is one of the main hotels in Downtown San Diego, it has plenty of space and things to do, the staff is great, the pool, gym and boardwalk are great, the view to the north is out of this world. Great restaurants and nicely decorated rooms. Plus all the things to do around the hotel.

It has a top notch fitness center, a good conference facility and a Starbucks on premises. The breakfast buffet is good with a lot of variety including breakfast... More

The Hilton is set in a great location with fabulous views and close to the Gaslamp area of San Diego. The room was clean and modern and we received a high floor as requested in our booking. We arrived rather late as our flight was delayed to find that there was no further food service after 10PM so the waitres... More

Overall, the stay was comfortable. I was generally pleased with the room and conference services. However, the dining options were limited and the food was less than stellar for price. I would also note that the signature pool bar closes too early, and the staff seemed rather uncomfortable explaining the bar hours to diverse patrons, while non-diverse patrons were noticably...

We stayed at Hilton San Diego Bay front for 2 nights on Sept.30-Oct. 1, the hotel was conveniently located near Gaslamp quarter, and downtown. Check in was quick, however the person assisting us did not even asked if we are a Hilton Honors member (and actually we are). Hotel room was small, although it was nice. To our surprise, there...
