I have stayed at the Hilton Bayfront before and have always liked it. The location is right across the street from the convention center and you don't have to deal with crossing the tracks to get there. The rooms are spacious and clean. This year I got a room with a shower instead of a tub as I had recently...

Great location for waking to gas lamp district. Clean and quiet rooms! Claudia in luggage delivery was amazing with my kids. She went above and beyond. Cons were: Parking costs and the insanely crowded pool. Anyone (non-hotel guests) can use the pool if they pay the $32 parking fee. Made for an unsafe and unenjoyable swimming experience.
