I really love this location. It is easy walking to the convention and shopping area. The room is ok, nice view, comfortable and clean. There is no in-room shoes that I expect it should have. For breakfast, it is not worth waking up to have it. Overall is fine to back for a second time.

Best hotel and best concierge ever (Shawn Romero)! This is my home away from home for a reason. Great location, clean, staff is friendly and spa is fabulous. Spectacular views when you stay in a bayfront room. I stay here for business and feel like I'm on vacation every time. Having a full sized Starbucks in the hotel is another...

Nice hotel at very good localization: next to Convention Centre ( I was a participant in one of the annual congress) only 200 m to Gas Lamp Quarter - the iconic San Diego street with dozen of restaurants and pubs (must see). Also 200 m to a tram station – you can get each destination in SD. The localization at...

We had a wonderful stay at the Hilton Bayfront. The hotel is lovely, the location allows for easy access to the convention center, Gaslamp Quarter, and tons of restaurants and shopping. It was easy to Uber anywhere in the city and waking up to those views of the bay was awesome!

Pros - Nice views if you are on the city side, plenty of restaurants and a Starbucks on-site, pet-friendly. Cons - Parking is pricey, no executive lounge. I'm assuming the latter is so they can nickel and dime you to death. Water in the gift shop is $5 a bottle. A Hilton of this size w/o an executive lounge is...

Stayed here as attending a conference in convention centre a few minutes walk away. Paid extra for a Bay view which we thought well worth while. Always lots going on around the harbour.
