3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Was here for a conference. The location of the hotel is great, overlooking the bay. Beautiful sight for sure. Rooms were okay, free Wi-Fi if you are a HHonours member, which is nice, but the room, which was a suite, had limited outlets to charge devices. You had to search to find one and they weren't in convenient locations. There... More

We had a wonderful view of the bay. Great location on the promenade to walk to restaurants and shops as well as across the street from Petco Stadium and the convention center. Concierge was very helpful for booking tours and providing information and directions in the area.

Great location, a little pricey but hotel is well worth it. Room was super quiet, able to get some must need rest. We will be back, definitely worth a repeat visit. You can walk across the bridge right to baseball park, a must see for a great open air park.

It's the closest hotel to the convention center. Even though I did not upgrade the $30.00/night extra for the bay front view, I have a view of the Coronado Bridge. It is close enough to the Gas Lamp district without having to deal with the noise. Hotel is very pet friendly. Pool and bar overlooks the San Diego Bay.

Impressive grand structure, next door to S.D. Convention Center and Marina. Nice room service, don't get the South view of the rail yards unless that's your thing. Crowded small pool for a hotel this size, limited quick breakfast choices except a small Starbucks and bar-restaurants.

Hilton San Diego Bayfront is an outstanding hotel. The lobby is large and spacious, the bar/restaurant on the lobby level has different options, the view from most of the rooms is great. Overall the eating joints here are overrated, and I would not eat anything but the breakfast here. Under no circumstances should you think of showing up before your... More
