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.

Excellent for Business Conference

Can not ask for a better location or a more magnificent view. Stayed here for the biotech convention and had excellent access to convention center and the GasLamp district. Only issue was no complimentary coffee in lobby area due to the Starbucks in the hotel. Otherwise, the access to the waterfront and the rest of the city, tied with the great Hilton brand make this a winner.

Instead of the hotel workout center (which is great), walk or run the waterfront to the USS Intrepid.

Great hotel

Very clean, friendly and pretty new (within the last couple of years it seems like). Right on the bay, I would def stay again. Close to Gaslamp Quarter. Take the Ferry to Coronado Beach from right in front of the hotel.

Couples Getaway

This was a great hotel. Rooms were clean and friendly staff. The pool was crowded with kids during the daytime, but it was nice at night. I also liked that this hotel is pet friendly. It only cost one $50 pet cleaning fee for the entire stay. However, the self parking for $30 a night is ridiculous. That should be included for the hotel guests.

Surprise weekend getaway

Went for a weekend getaway. I think it was a bit chaotic. The pool was open to people not even staying at the hotel so it was way overcrowded. It was within walking distance to the gas lamp quarters and all the dinning so that was good. There were plenty of food options. We did order room service, for what was received, way over priced. Side of fruit for $7.00 consisted of about 7 pieces of bite sized fruit. The bed was super uncomfortable. My husband and I both woke up with back pain from tossing and turning around. I think for what you pay, it should be excellent..... but it definitely lacks the '4' star quality it claims to be.
