We had a short stay in San Diego so it was good to be close to the Gaslamp Quarter, there is a hop on hop off shuttle that stops right at the hotel. The rooms are lovely, I enjoyed the separate foyer area where guests can use the computers and having Starbucks right outside your door is very convenient. Wifi...

My husband and I decided to do a quick San Diego stop before we headed home. We stayed at the Hilton and it was the perfect location. We were able to catch the ferry to Coronado, walk the pier, and go more downtown. We even caught a Padres game that you literally walk across the bridge to. The swimming pool...

Ignore the stunning decor, the breathtaking views, and the overall cleanliness of the entire property, and try to focus on the stellar employees Hilton Bayfront has. I have yet to come across a less than pleasant employee at this property, but the one who sticks out the most is their Concierge, Shawn Romero. He is always accommodating and beyond helpful...

This is a very comfortable hotel. Very new and clean feeling, contrary to some reviews we read beforehand, so we were pleasantly surprised. The strength of this hotel is great views of the bay and Coronado Island. There is also a great selection of restaurants and bars right in the hotel, although finding them is a bit of a challenge....

We traveled here with our 2 kids and had a wonderful stay. The hotel was very clean, rooms were roomy and spacious and the beds were comfy. We would go out for the day and come back to have lunch or rest (kids are 5 and 8) and every time we'd walk back in, the hotel staff remembered us and...

This hotel is great if you're looking for a good view and good service! It is a bit pricey but it is well worth it.

Nice hotel to stay but just rather expensive for the rooms and any other amenities you might use. That's why the location is good, more affordable restaurants and bars to drink at located on fifth ave. I would stay there again if it was more affordable in all areas of the hotel especially when you compare what's nearby.
