Room and bed were comfortable, elevators were speedy, hotel grounds were immaculate and the view of the ocean and harbor was beyond gorgeous. I went for a conference but would consider staying here again for vacation. It was great to wake up in a comfortable bed, have a look at the great view and grab a cup of coffee at...

My family and I stayed at the 'Hilton San Diego Bayfront' at the last minute as we weren't satisfied from the hotel we had booked to stay at. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the hotel staff, then we couldn't have gotten any better service throughout our whole experience during our stay. Our room was wonderful, it was clean...

Stayed here for 3 nights during IDWeek 2015. Conveniently located to the Convention Center, and has great views of the water. I had a room on the 20th floor overlooking the convention center. The room itself was spacious and clean, definitely on the nicer end of Hiltons. Digital thermostat (only goes up to 74F), quiet HVAC. Bathroom was spacious though...

Nice hotel. For 20 dollars extra per night, we got a lovely view of the bay, boats, sunset. Expensive, as is everything in San Diego. Nice room, with granite counter in bathroom and shower with stone tile.

I'm a business traveler averaging 200+ nights a year in hotels, and almost entirely Hilton branded properties throughout Northern and Central California. This particular stay was one of my too few-and-far between personal trips, making myself a three day weekend to visit San Diego.

Nice hotel. Nothing too special. Food was marginal. Rooms are nice and clean. Location is ok. Not too far from gas lamp district and convention center. Room overlooked the Dole distribution center on the port which wasn't the nicest view. The hot tub was not working one day and the steam shower in the spa was also not working that...

The hotel participates in the 911 tribute and they have firefighters climb the hotel stairs - 100 flights. It is a breathtaking show to see these men and women in their tribute to the fallen comrades. They hotel is exceptional in all areas, right on the water and very easy access.

I was in town for a conference and found the Hilton Bayside to be in an ideal location to the convention center. The rooms were clean and the service was excellent. I loved having the Fox Sports bar and Starbucks attached to the hotel.
