Hilton Name and Quality

Unfortunately, we arrived when there was a huge traffic problem. It took us an hour to arrive in the parking lot once we were a block from the hotel. There could be better arrangements for guests. There was only one cup for the coffee when there were two of us in the room. This hotel is definitely set for companies to pay for everything and not for the regular vacationer to pay for their own expenses. We had a great time using the pool and walked the promenade. Thanks for the stay and booking.

Great Location, Clean Rooms, Crowded Pool

The highlights were the location on the waterfront (walking distance to Petco Park and Gaslamp) and a clean quiet room with a view of the harbor, mainly of the Dole container ship, the shipyard, the train yard and the Coronado Bridge (our 2-year-old loved looking out the window). The only disappointment was that with so many families there for Labor Day, the pool area was overcrowded and not very clean or relaxing.

Great Getaway Weekend

Really enjoyed the stay at this Hotel. the staff was very friendly and the amenities were fabulous. Plenty things to do with exciting entertainment and so much of it was within walking distance. First time in the San Diego area and will definitely be coming back as this was high on our list of great places to stay in San Diego.

Fun four days in the sun

The Bayfront Hilton is perfectly located next to the convention center and Gaslamp. It's also on the water for a perfect run to the Midway and back. The view from my room was great. The room was super comfortable and kept cool throughout the warm days. Parking was reasonable and EASY to get in and out. Everyone was friendly. I'm coming back.

excellent location - poor pool

Location is central, across convention center, decent rooms and service. Food was a bit disappointing , but pool was very disappointing, very small, and less than 4 feet at its deepest. Gas lamp quarters is 5 minute walk - so lot of restaurants and night life.
