Hotel charged a $33/day Resort Fee, $40/day "self" parking fee and excess taxes. Self-parking is a third world experience. One day, to exit the structure, we had to navigate around a sleeping homeless person being guarded by a wide awake pit bull. On another day, we had to venture over feces in the starwell. If you don't pay an extra $100 to have a city view, you look over a Dole Distribution Center where a hundred tractor trailers are parked with active trucks coming and going all day..

Hotel's Favorite
The overall stay was absolutely amazing. The staff was very friendly and gave me a status upgrade when I checked in. I had a marina view room, which was very comfortable, spacious and exceptionally clean. I was originally set to stay for 2 nights but due to work had to change to 1 and was thankfully not charged a fee. They let me know they do not provide room service for 2 nights but made sure I knew if I needed anything at all just to let them know and were very welcoming about anything I could possibly need to make my stay the best one possible. The staff was welcoming every time I entered and greeted me upon entry and exit. I will be adding this to my favorites and stay here again when in San Diego.

We went to San Diego for a birthday weekend get away. The Hilton Bayfront was an amazing experience. The room was very clean and smelled liked it’s been sanitized. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were nice and soft. The Bayfront views were breath taking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I especially like the texting for assistance or questions which was very efficient. I would definitely staff here again the next time I plan to visit San Diego. We can’t wait to come back once COVID-19 is gone so that we can experience the walking distance Gaslamp district and also catch a baseball game at the Petco Stadium.

It really is not the Hotels fault. Due to Covid, the large hotel seemed very lonely. There was nowhere to dine in to eat at the hotel, other than eating in your room or outside tables. They also had to empty out the swimming pool for a few hours and we were unable to use. Great location with great water views

Rooms are cleaned well but some little things were not available. No cups in room so bring your own. There seemed to be coffee packets but no paper cups or mugs. No cups in the bathroom either. Toiletries were available. The view from our room was spectacular. 28th floor out of 30. Masks are required throughout the hotel and even in some surrounding areas outside as the hotel is busy on Saturday nights. There is no valet or bell hop. Self parking is $40. This is one of the very few dog-friendly hotels and it worked out great for our family pet. There is a $50 charge for the pet. The pool is by reservation at this time which is available at the pool desk. It is blocked in 2 hour increments which is not a big deal during non peak days. There is a small waterslide at the kiddle pool. Pool was open but slide was closed. There seemed to be some food service at the pool but we bought drinks from Vela restaurant and brought them over. I suspect that the staff are doing the same. Vela is open for takeout only but you can sit outside next to the harbor and sit at covered tables or picnic tables by a little patio. Burgers and sandwiches at Vela are around $18. Good food though. The Gaslamp quarter is accessible over a pedestrian bridge (about a 1/2 mile walk to the good places). The nearest regular Starbucks is 1/2 mile away. There is a Starbucks in the hotel but it is resort priced so everything is double and they don't have the usuals. Petco Park is about a 1/4 mile. Be aware that this area attracts homeless that you will definitely encounter. The bridge has a long staircase or elevator that is definitely a public elevator (dirty, smelly). During the day, not a big deal but we didn't walk over to the Gaslamp in the evening to avoid some of the weirdness. The Convention Center is right next door but is currently used as a resource center for homeless so it also attracts homeless. I didn't walk the dog alone in the evening because of that. We did walk to Roy's one evening and saw some homeless along the harbor. The path along the harbor is very popular with runners and the grassy field is sometimes used for soccer drills/practice. Ultimately, the location is great if you are ok staying at the hotel. The surrounding areas are less desired and don't seem family friendly.
