Customer Service

My first impression was awesome, we were greeted by very friendly car attendants who were smiling and willing to help with our luggage. Shawn at the front desk was friendly, informative and very efficient with meeting all my needs. What a great experience.

Great value on the bay

Easy walking access to San Diego convention center, Petco Stadium, and lots of high quality restaurants in the gas lamp district and by the marina. Beautiful, safe, well-lit walkway along the bayside to other area hotels and restaurants. Luxury at a better rate than some of the other nearby hotels. Lots of new outdoor poolside construction underway. No need for a rental car for convention or stadium area events.

High quality beers, burgers, TV's and theme-dressed wait staff at a sports bar on east side of stadium. Very good value compared to the expensive steakhouses nearby.

For Business Travelers: Quiet & near Conference Center, but awkward and AIrport

The Bayfront is at the far end of the San Diego Conference Center and across from the Gaslamp Quarter and PetCo park, a few miles from the airport. in that regard, it's well-situated and has everything you'd expect from a Hilton in terms of business services. You will have to walk a bit to the front of the conference center, but it is more quiet. It's a large hotel and the entrances are awkward for pedestrians. Three restaurants are inside, but otherwise you will also be walking a bit for the Gaslamp quarter too. Our room was standard, although the handicap accessibility meant few shelves in the bathroom and an awkward shower (either too high or too low). Air on the 20th floor was very dry at night. No fridge. But it was clean and WiFi worked well. Outside heated saltwater pool with jacuzzi and cabanas was beautiful as long as the music wasn't blasting. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could, and probably only stay there again if the price was competitive.

Hilton Bay Front for a Staycation

I live here in San Diego so I'm a little spoiled for the views but he Bay Front location is just wonderful. Great for a stroll down to Sea Port Village or downtown/gaslamp district. This would count as our third staycation here so they must be doing something right. Can't figure out what about their beds & sheets are the most comfortable I've experienced in any hotel save for maybe J.W. Marriott. Their downside is the fees for this & that are too high and you get a little feeling of being nickeled and dimed if you want something anything....e.g. parking, room service is too high, wi-fi, etc
