This was a great downtown San Diego Hilton property right on the bay. Check-in was very smooth and the room was very clean. Internet service was very fast. The view of the bridge to Coronado Island was very nice. I would definitely look at this property again when I come back to San Diego.

I stayed here for several days during a meeting in the hotel and had a great stay. The service was excellent and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The hotel is modern and has a couple of comfortable bars and a nice pool. It is right on the bay and there are a lot of areas right on the bay...

Nice hotel, beautiful location. Within walking distance to the USS Midway. A little pricey but typical Hilton. Beds were just o.k. Rooms were clean. Could have used more towels Only two provided in a king room.

I viewed the photos, planned the trip, and off we went. You never expect the hotel to look as good as it does in advertisements or for the staff to truly care what you think beyond saying it to get you to spend your money there. To my surprise, Hilton Bayfront succeeded-beyond my initial doubts-to actually measure up to their...

I stayed at the Hilton Bayfront for a Medical convention at the convention center. I had a nice and spacious room with a beautiful view that I enjoyed every day. The restrooms were very average. The elevators were pretty efficient. The hotel is very conveniently located not only for the convention center but for the great places located in Gaslamp....

We booked this place for my in-laws' trip to meet my family. I picked it over more modest hotels closer to my parents' home because the primo location meant my in-laws would be steeped in San Diego even when we weren't sightseeing together.  We got one Bay/City Skyline room and one Port/Coronado bridge view room. The Bay/City view was gorgeous...

I would have scored this hotel a very comfortable 4.5. The rooms and public areas are nice. The downside to this establishment is their staff. Upon arrival at the hotel we drove up to the reception area and as luck would have it a car was pulling out of a carpark nearby. We parked and carried our luggage through to...

I was staying at the hotel for a nearby convention. The location is excellent and is close to many restaurants and the Gaslamp District. The property is nice, well kept, and has many amenities. Use the gym and family used the pool and hot tub. A very nice stay.

The internet flat out does not work. Not even a basic web page connection, not with using multiple different devices. Not even using the cord. So if you need internet, you can find a different place. For $300 a night, there is no excuse.

We stayed here kind of on a whim. We came down to San Diego for the Red Bull air show, which was pretty cool. We ended up parking at this hotel for the show, so we figured why drive around to find a place, when we could just stay here and see the show from our room too if we...
