I stayed at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront with a colleague while attending a conference at the San Diego Convention Center. The hotel is conveniently located right next door. Check-in was a breeze. Our room was roomy and extremely clean. The bathroom had awesome deep drawers in the vanity, which made it much easier to unpack. The pedestrian bridge over Harbor Blvd is open, pretty and a great asset. We used it several times to cross the street to get to the Gaslamp. if you want to see a Padres game, you are right across the street from the stadium too.
The women we worked with at the concierge desk were extremely helpful. They made us 2 dinner reservations for exactly the time and place we wanted. They provided me with a handy jogging map. I personally watched them work with multiple guests at one time and it appeared that they were keen on satisfying all reasonable requests.
We originally planned to check out the morning of our departure, but our flight was a redeye that was not leaving until 10:30pm. We contacted the front desk about extending our stay, and they made it possible for us to keep our room until 8:30 that evening. Although we had to pay for an extra night (because we were staying past 5:30), it was nice that they were able to accommodate our request at the last minute -- it took all of 5 minutes.
One note for business travelers -- the UPS Store runs the hotel's business center. You will be charged an extra fee to send or receive any packages at the hotel in addition to your regular shipping charges. This can get pricey depending on your needs, so be careful.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to any business or leisure travelers who want a modern, upscale, conveniently located hotel near the Gaslamp/Convention Center.
