The location great. The rooms ok. Could be better. The food was good. It is right on the water and the mile long walk is just gorgeous on a bright sunny san diego morning. You have plenty of things to do around the location.

What a beautiful property. Close proximity to restaurants, shopping in the Gaslight District and Seaport Village. Going to a Padres game at Petco Park--can't stay at a better location with easy access to the ball park. Quality and professionalism of the Hilton staff was unsurpassed of any property I have stayed at for a long period. Best nights sleep I...

Very nice Hilton property with spacious rooms and modern decor. It definitely has a "resort" style feel which makes you think you are vacationing on caribbean island, which speaks to the inviting atmosphere of the hotel staff and the laid back lifestyle of which California is known for. The Hilton is very close to the Convention Center, the Gaslamp District...

Hilton Bayfront with beautiful views of the bay, salt water pool overlooking the bay is a nice size but can get crazy busy on the weekend if there is a concert going on.

While I appreciated the option to choose or room prior to arrival, I would have been disappointed if I hadn't read others reviews. All views are great, but even rooms look out over the Dole plant and a sea of semi trailers. The room was quiet, clean and mostly comfy. However, a fan in the bathroom would have been a...

Stayed here recently for a business conference and to spend time with daughter who met me there from Boston. We both need a healthy dose of sunshine and coastline. We had everything we needed here.
