After 3M miles traveling around the world mostly staying at Hilton, this was the most under staffed and poor managed hotel that I have ever experiences. Cutting cost to a level that they manage the room temperature from outside without guest's knowledge!!!! The Thermostat was really useless until I called in to find out why the room was cold. Every...

We stayed her 2 nights checking in on New Year's day. Liked that they had a separate check-in line for Hilton Honors members. We checked in online so there was someone going down the row asking if we already checked in. She took us to the side to go grab our room keys. Our room we selected (which you can...

We stayed for the Christmas/New Year's week. There was a good deal offered by the hotel, for the week before New Year's Eve, in conjunction with their Big Night gala for New Year's Eve. (We did not participate in the gala.) The room was clean, and the cleaning staff do a great job. The room had a good view, south,...

Hotel seems fairly new and room quality was high. As a Diamond Elite member I appreciated a room upgrade with amazing view. Stay was sadly let down by the hotel's ability to cope with the volume of guests for breakfast. Was there for 4 days and the wait for breakfast was always AT LEAST 40 minutes! Even the onsite Starbucks...

The Hilton Bayfront has everything you'd expect from a top class hotel. I was particularly impressed with the well maintained state of such a large hotel. Everything is immaculate.

This property has comfortable rooms, fast elevators, and limited dining options supplemented by several franchises on the lower level including Starbucks, a frozen yogurt shop, and a sports bar. The hotel itself has one very pricey restaurant (Vela) along with an equally pricey bar that serves a limited menu of "bar food." Parking runs $32 per day, and even the...
