My room was very clean and had and excellent view of the convention center for the marathon that happened to be taking place on that Sunday. Also a very good spot to bring the whole family seeing that it is centrally located and within walking distance of anything that would be considered entertaining and attractive in a cool city.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 September 2016

Well, I decided to skip the airport lounge, grab a shuttle, and pray I could check-in early. The good news was that I could! Check-in was very quick for my situation. I enjoyed a group rate which included a custom card key as well. The room was, surprisingly enough, a corner room overseeing Petco Park, which allowed me three firework...

The hotel is in a great location a stone throw from everything you need. We're there for a conference. Huge place and quite hard to find the restaurants and bars. Service was not great for us. Two people in the room but only got supplies for one, kept having to phone to ask for more. Breakfast service was not clear...

Really enjoyed our weekend stay at the San Diego Bayfront Hilton. Service and Room was very good. Parking was kind of expensive, but I guess normal for downtown hotels. Didn't use the restaurants or wifi, so can't speak to that.

Mere minutes from the airport. On the harbor with spectacular views. Walking distance from the Gas Light section of town and the ball park. Rail service is also walking distance. The property is high end and well kept. Great value if value is your goal.

We stayed here for 4 nights for a conference of over 2000. Overall we really enjoyed our room on the 27th floor and the view of the mountains, sunrise and bridge. The room was perfect, had everything we needed. The conference was big, super crowded and when we were let out to go eat, it was a crazitrain racing to...

As we were checking-in, the process seemed like we were staying at some seedy motel rather than the flagship Hilton hotel in the San Diego area. We arrived around 11:30am and were told our room wasn't ready, but that if we upgraded for $30/night to a room with a better view with otherwise identical features, we could get in right...

I stayed at the Hilton for a conference. The lobby is nice and the location is good for people who are going to Petco Park or a conference down here. My first room on the 26th floor was dirty (what looked like black bugs throughout the room which were smushed in the carpet and a stain between the two beds)...

The hotel is located on the water and many rooms have excellent views over the water and/or the city. My room was quiet and comfortable and the WiFi worked well. The in-house restaurant choices are not great, but there is reasonable access to city restaurant choices once you cross over the busy road and railroad tracks on the east side...
