I was just at the hotel for the last couple of days on business. The conference facilities were very good and the food was good. The room was a nice double.

5th Street is not exactly across the street. We did walk there and back every night, but after the first night some of our group decided to take a cab.

If you are coming to San Diego on business, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Of course, if you can stay at The Del on Coronado, that is the way to go!!

I attended a 1000 person convention at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel over the last 3 days. The service was excellent. The facilities were well setup for exhibits, seating and presentations. The food service was good, actually better than I expected in choice and quality for buffet meals. I had a king bed room on the 25th floor overlooking the Coronado Bridge and the bay. The room was large, clean and bright. The shower had good water pressure and adjustable hot water temperature. The hotel is walking distance with a pedestrian bridge to Petco Field and the Gaslamp Quarter. The hotel was a good choice, I would stay at it again.

This hotel was great and I wish all hotels had the same attention and experience as yours. My stay at this hotel with my bride was wonderful all of the amenities were great the pool was big and the hot tub was very nice. everything was within walking a distance. We were able to walk down stairs, in this case take the elevator and enjoy the bar, restaurants and the courteous attention of all personal working at the Hilton.

Really impressed by the hotel reception staff, they were very polite and helpful.

We only stayed for 1 night and managed to book a room for $99 ex tax through 'booking.com'. This was extremely good value for a quality hotel like this. We didn't really use any of the facilities but the view of the Coronado bridge from the 19th floor was great, just as good as the bay view which was an additional $20.

Easy walking distance to the Gaslamp, the parking was a bit pricey though at $28/night.

Room Tip: Ask for 19th floor or above

We stayed here after a work event, and this is a nice Hilton hotel. Overall, the hotel was as can be expected from a chain hotel. The public spaces are nice and the rooms are standard. The place is clean. Our view wasn't spectacular, but it wasn't bad either. The highlight was the Peter Thomas Roth toiletries in the bathroom! Location is pretty good, although not in the heart of all the action, probably a place better suited for families. I would recommend this hotel.

This is one of my fave Hilton hotels - view, food, attractions. Got a jr. Suite, got an excellent view of the bay, walking distance to the ferry to cross over to Coronado or to the Gas Lamp District. Transportation is close too.
