Me and my husband checked in at this hotel when it was newly built...my goodness the generosity...the service is at it's finest! Whenever we go to San Diego it's the only hotel that we wanna stay! And hey try their breakfast buffet it's sooo good!

For our Conventioneer Guests Right next to the San Diego Convention Center, Miles calculated via Freeway, it's less than a mile !!.

We stayed there for almost a week. The location being near the convention center and the Gaslamp quarter was perfect. The views from our room were spectacular. The food and drinks were wonderfully created and delicious.

Family friendly hotel near the convention center and Petco park so stay when there's fireworks if you want a splendid view.

Rooms have been renovated so are decent, pool has spectacular view and the restaurants/bars are good for young professionals looking to escape the family scene in the pool.

We stay here for our stay vacation. We love the views and that its on the waterfront. It's within walking distance to seaport village, Pet-co park and the convention center. Lots of restaurants around this area also.

Nice location just a short walk to the Gas Lamp and Ball Park. Rooms are pleasant and relatively new. Great place to hold a conference or large gathering

Great view from the Hilton Bayfront lounge on the second floor. Grab a drink and head outside to the patio on a sunny day.

This is my favorite hotel with or without San Diego Comic Con. I stayed here last year and this coming San Diego Comic Con. I've also stayed here this past weekend for a Pharmacy convention for my husband.

This place is so accommodating, so nice, and just so convenient. The rooms are great and clean. The views are the best.

Valet $47/night
Self $32/night
If you're here for a meeting or want coffee... You can get three hours with a Starbucks purchase... But not during SDCC.

Their social media is just as great. Their Twitter person always respond back. Awesome.

Stayed here for a little "staycation" (harhar). I couldn't have picked a better place. It's a very classy hotel, with the perfect distant from the Gaslamp. The bar had awesome, creative drinks.

During the summer rooms can be a bit pricey. However, if you're able to stay during slower months, the rooms are pretty reasonable. Great views and easily accessible location. Watch a baseball game and stay for the weekend!

One of the nicest hotels in Downtown San Diego. Sits right on the Marina and has some fantastic views of the Bay. Also connected to the Convention Center so great for business travelers or conventioneers. Vela is a great restaurant inside the hotel.

This Hilton Bayfront is conviently located near the Gaslamp District. Close to the train lines that will take you all the way to Santee, this contemporary hotel sits on the water front overseeing Coronado. The rooms are nice. Next door to the San Diego convention center and across Petco Park.

Local from San Diego

A gorgeous, comfortable, and pampering hotel with the friendliest restaurant staff I've ever met. The views are unbeatable, the beds are swallow-you-up delightful, and each room has a balcony so you can fully enjoy an ocean-view sunset. The only downside is that the hotel is a bit removed from downtown, making transportation/convenience a little tricky.

Recommended for:Business Travelers

The view from our room looking across the bay was stunning! Walking distance to the gas lamp district and convention center. Enjoyed every minute!

Local from San Diego, California

The Hilton located downtown on the harbor is beautiful. The staff is friendly but the food is mediocre at best. Location is good but would recommend for business or meeting/event since it is located downtown and not in the beach area

This place is pretty new. The rooms are sweet. And you get an awesome view of the water.

The Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel is adjacent to the Gaslamp Quarter district
If you are looking to party near Gaslamp. You can pre-party here and walk over in 5-10 mins.
There is a liquor store a few blocks away in case you forgot to stock up.
Typical of all of San Diego, parking cost are @!#$@#$. WTF,27 for self parking or 36 for valet.
Plus: they have a starbucks in the lower lobby.
Don't forget to stop by the pool. Enjoy some California sun.

San Carlos, California

Got a good deal for the room but did not realize that parking cost just as much! Luckily we were able to find street parking. Not all the rooms have an ocean view as we got an excellent view of people walking up to the hotel.

A well appointed and nice new Hilton with some logistical problems. It works well as a conference hotel if you're just in the hotel or in the convention center next door, but it's kind of a pain to walk over to the rest of downtown, which is literally on the other side of the tracks. The hotel's dining and Starbucks are inexplicably only accessible from outside -- you have to literally exit the hotel and walk around the building to get to them. The exits/entrances are not particularly well marked and it's pretty confusing.


I came here for the Gartner Cloud Conference this past summer and was impressed by the cleanliness of the property and friendliness of the staff. The convention center food and beverage service was among the best that I have seen and far exceeded that of the much larger OracleWorld in San Francisco. I enjoyed a nice lunch of coq au vin on the restaurant patio overlooking San Diego Bay. My only complaint was finding the entrance to the hotel when arriving on foot from over by the San Diego Convention Center.
