Always a great experience at the Bayfront. Beautiful views of the city and harbor with awesome service. The only downside at this point is that their renovated restaurant has still not opened. Currently, they are serving meals in the bar/lounge area.

Hotel's Favorite
We are Hilton Diamond members. The Bayfront is primarily a convention hotel but because of the location close to Petco and downtown (walkable) we decided to try it out. Petco Park is directly across the street from the hotel and the walk to downtown restaurants was maybe 15 minutes (does not require a car). The hotel is across the street from a Trolley stop which makes access very easy. The view on the bay is excellent with boats of all sizes going back and forth all day. The hotel offers a free hourly shuttle to Coronado Island and drops you off at the Hotel Del Coronado. The lobby is attractive and the rooms very adequate. Because it was our anniversary the hotel was king enough to upgrade us to a corner King with great water views. They also delivered a bottle of Prosecco and finger desserts to our room to celebrate our anniversary. The best part of our stay was the staff! Oscar checked in and was very friendly and professional. Gary the Bellman was the star of the show. He was so friendly welcoming and genuinely happy to see you. Shelly assisted with our room upgrade and was was just terrific to work with. Our housekeeper Grizelda was wonderful and did a great job each day making up our room. We had such a positive experience that we would not hesitate to return again. We were made to feel very welcome during our entire stay.

Dear sikenp, Please hurry back to our Hilton San Diego Bayfront. It was a joy to host you during the conference, but perhaps we can tempt you with a weekend retreat during which you can enjoy sunset cocktails and once again, enjoy a perfect stroll with a stunning view. We would love if you could explore a massage in our Eforea Spa! We thank you for the kind words highlighting the attention to detail and professionalism of the staff. It was a joy to host you and we look forward to doing so time and again. Warm regards, Steve Cowan, General Manager

I stay at Hilton hotels often and main reason is cleanliness of rooms. So I was very disappointed to find out a pillow with blood stains and a very noisy bed in this $500/night room. The room also smelled like bleach. Otherwise room had a good view very spacious ec.

Dear umitciftci2022, Thank you for choosing our Hilton San Diego Bayfront and leaving your comments. We want to sincerely apologize for the housekeeping issues you encountered during your visit. We have shared your feedback with the Housekeeping Supervisor who has taken proper action to ensure these missed opportunities are not repeated. We hold ourselves to very high standards and should you stay with us again, we believe you'll see that this was an isolated incident. I am pleased that you did enjoy the spaciousness of the guest room and the enigmatic views of San Diego's bayfront. I am hoping you had a little time to wander around our grounds - a very relaxing experience and to visit the Gaslamp Quarter where there are loads of fun to be had. We would welcome another opportunity to host you and provide you with the seamless and perfect stay you deserve. Kind regards, Steve Cowan, General Manager

Stayed a few days after New Year in Monterey. As Diamond Member got a room upgrade to 29th floor- no 2 queen corner room available, only king corner which wouldn't work for myself and wife and two teen girls. Room was nice, a bit cramped but doable for a few days. Great view of bay and city. Looks like they recently upgraded room but they could have gotten rid of tub/shower with curtain and put in walk in/step in with glass. Walking distance to Gaslamp and Seaport Village for eating and drinks, and desert. As a Diamond member I received $24 daily credit for meals as there is no buffet which helped though breakfast was pricey in hotel. Staff was very nice and attentive and Karin at the concierge was great. She ironed out mess on one of the activities we did for them and gave us credit on nightly resort fee ( $35) for hassle. Lady who ran breakfast area was very nice and friendly. Only one place to eat at moment but they are working on Grab and Go area and reopening main restaurant. Pretty good gym and nice pool area. It was a good value since I used points and cash to pay for 3 nights. Overall a good stay!
