This is our 3rd time staying at Hilton Bayfront within the last 2 months because of the area, the staff and the view from the room. We had a bay/city view room and we sat watching the boats in the harbor, the city and at night the city lights and we could see Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres from our room. We did a lot of walking through the Gaslamp Quarter. During this Coronavirus Pandemic dining outside was good and wearing a mask is a must. We also walked along the harbor, walked to Shoreline Village, did some shopping and you can eat while watching the harbor. You can walk to see and tour the USS Midway. We also took the train, the green line to Old Town and walk through the town. We shopped, ate, and had a great time. There is a lot to do....from whale watching, Hornblower dinner cruises, the patriot speedboat, and the boat that will take you to Coronado Island. Book a bay city view room and enjoy the possibilities of the city. The staff at Hilton Bayfront are helpful and friendly.

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 booked a room facing the San Diego Bay with a view to the city and Point Loma. The room was very large, and we had the choice of daily service or call for service. We were staying 2 nights, so chose not to clean. Of course there was coffee packages for only 1 day. We did not eat at the hotel. The daily parking fee was $25.00 self park.

When we checked in, we asked about the view from our room and told a harbor view. We were looking at all industrial, very little water. Our air conditioning in the room wasn’t working and someone had to come up and fix it. Then our toilet wasn’t working and that had to be fixed too. We were told we could only stay at the pool for two hours because of San Diego covid rules and need to sanitize. No one came and told me to leave nor did I see them wipe or sanitize any chair the entire day. With so few people there, would it have hurt to give us a room with a view instead of trying to charge us $59/night extra? Poor experience at a place I used to love. Wont stay again.

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..
