Friendly and respectful service, relaxing stay, excellent food, close to the convention center... all the basics are covered. Great place for business travels, and I'm sure also for vacation trips. You will definitely enjoy your stay.

Very good location. Beautiful surroundings. Convenient for meetings. The room is comfortable with a very clean and up to date look. Check in and out was a breeze and all the staff was very prompt, efficient and knowledgable.

We had a wonderful experience. We had an amazing view. The hotel is beautiful. We were only blocks from the Gaslamp area and Seaport Village. We didn't have a chance to go into the pool, but we went to see it and now I'm mad at myself for not getting in. The bar staff were very friendly. We will come...

We were 8 females traveling from Indiana to San Diego for business/pleasure. The hotel was very accommodating and friendly. There was nearly everything you needed on site. We felt safe the whole time and overall was a great experience.

We stayed at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront for our anniversary getaway. We have stayed there before and were excited to return.

This is my 5th time in San Diego for a conference, but my first stay at this property. Although close to the convention center it was further from the action than the Grand Hyatt or the Marriott, where I've stayed before. The property and rooms are nice, but I expect more for the price. The rooms were clean, but a...
