We wanted to be close to airport, so chose the Bayfront as an end of vacation place. Our reserved room with 2 queens was overbooked, so we ended up with 1 king and 1 room with 2 doubles that were adjoining (at no extra charge) so we ended up with a better stay. Kids had their room, we had ours....

Nice hotel. Definitely worth extra money for Bay View. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly. If you go to pool bar be aware they add automatic 18% gratuity to bill. Our waitress made a nice 38% off of us after tipping 20% because we didn't check bill before paying. Hotel is in great location. Lots of great bars & restaurants...

This is an average hotel for a Hilton. No real complaints but then nothing special either. If I were to come again I would probably stay across the street at the Omni. On more than one day we had to ask for extra towels as they only left two, one for me and one for my wife. Because we work...

The view was amazing overlooking San Diego Bay and the bridge to Coronado Island. It sits right on the waterfront and is near EVERYTHING. A stone throw from Petco Park where the Padres play and the bars at the Gaslamp district. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

Hotel is ideally located next to the convention centre and also within walking distance to the Gaslamp Quarter & Petco Park. Hotel is clean with great refurbished rooms and if you can get a room overlooking the bay it offers great views of the US Navy ships coming into the harbor, especially if you are traveling with kids.
