I love staying at the Hilton Bayfront. The staff there is always very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is beautiful and such a nice location on the bay. The Gaslamp is right across the street so there are virtually unlimited dining options nearby. I also really enjoy their Big Night New Year's Eve event. It has been such a great...

The brand makes it expensive compared to the services provided. You have to pay extra for a sea view otherwise you end up with an ugly industrial view. Pool is small. you pay for parking your car even if you are a guest. Overall, I would choose another hotel if I had the chance

We stayed here in October as a couple. The hotel is very modern facing the water and overlooking Coronado Island as well as downtown San Diego. Karin Bergendahl in the concierge provided excellent service and went above and beyond to make this a memorable stay for us. Love the view from our room! We will definitely stay here again!

Stayed here recently for a meeting. Had a great room that overlooked the entire bay (Coronado, naval base, convention center) and was on a high floor. The room was comfortable, well appointed and well maintained. One thing I noticed was the bathrooms seemed a bit small, but overall didn't detract from the experience. Hotel has a Starbucks, multiple restaurants and...
