Aggravated by chinciness with computer access”

good staff, large and clean rooms, location

The absence of free wifi was expected and detracted from an otherwise pleasant experience. But what ruined my experience was the parallel absence of a complimentary computer-printer for running off my boarding passes. Yes, the ever-friendly staff did refer me upstairs to a UPS business center -- where I would have been charged for the privilege. I declined to do so, deciding to wait until I got to the airport. As a result of this experience, I left the San Diego Bayfront Hilton feeling a bit hostile and certainly without any warm, fuzzy feelings towards the establishment.

Wonderful bay view, great location, great service”

Big hotel, close to convention center, rail transit, 2-min drive to Coronado island, 5 min walk to gas lamp area

We only stayed one night in San Diego but we had a great time because of the good choice for hotel. It is beautifully located and is close to convention center, rail transit, 2-min drive to Coronado island, 5 min walk to gas lamp area. We walked to gas lamp and found lots of nice restaurants, bars and shops spread in several blocks in gas lamp area. Guess it will be much more exciting at night. Pity we have to leave the next day. I had a little trouble opening my room door but bellman Paul was kind enouth to keep me company and offered a lot of help for our sight seeing the next day. He even gave two complimentary coupons for drink and food in Starbucks in the hotel building. Thank you Paul.

Clean, Location, Ocean View

This is our second time to stay at this hotel. We were amazed by the view and the location, therefore it became our top list for staying at San Diego. The beach walk was so attractive. Totally in the vacation mode. Some attractions are easy to get to by driving or walking or by public transportation. The old town and convention center are walking distance from the hotel.

Nice view of the bay. Within walking distance to Gaslamp District.

We had a wonderful weekend getaway to San Diego. The hotel was very nice. The room was clean and relatively new-looking with a nice partial view of the bay. The room was a good average size. Housekeeping was good, but discreet. We hardly ever saw them, but our rooms were clean and beds were made whenever we got back. Designer toiletries smelled nice.

We were attending the Paul McCartney concert in Petco Park and decided to stay at the Hilton Bayfront because it's right across the street from that venue. The hotel is right on the bay with great views and lots of services right there.

Location, Skywalk and proximity to Gas Lamp Quarters

It was a pleasant stay at the Hilton San Diego but surprisingly the hotel was not meant for kids - nothing they can enjoy off. Most people come to San Diego for visit to Zoo/ Seaworld with their kids but this didn't had any activities

The view was gorgeous, overlooking the Bay!! I will definitely refer this hotel to friends and family as well as I plan on returning to the hotel as soon as possible! Price was right for a 4-5 star hotel, gas lamp was within walking distance! I will be back hopefully sooner than later!

Lovely hotel room with nice view”

location (in bayfront)

What I really liked are the location of the Hotel and the view fron the room. The view from my room was so wonderful, and my camera was just not good enough to take a shot for the whole bay scenery. I also enjoyed complementary wireless internet at the lobby. I also enjoyed fresh Casear salad and the fish soup for the dinner in Vela Restaurant. The bartender was gentle and kind enough to answer to my questions on the various food style.

Nice hotel but not great location”

Nice rooms.

Nice hotel but would recommend staying elsewhere. Hotel blocks external phone providers so could not use phone to access internet. We were told "the building was built in a weird angle so it blocked phone reception" but as soon as you stepped outside there was reception. They did not offer free wi-fi and charged $15 per day. Hotel was right on the water's edge but was right at the wharf so would wake up to boats being unloaded. A short walk from Gaslight district but a lot of homeless people on one side of the road so a bit scary. Also ran out of money so used room phone to dial a 'free call' number overseas to transfer money and were slugged with a phone bill. They refunded most of the money. I guess that was our fault for using hotel room phone.

Our weekend excursion.”

The location is convenient; the pool wonderful; and the view outstanding..

Interesting because there was a demonstration outside that woke us up at 7:00 am....tough when you are on vacation. My only complaint was that there was no free internet in our room. Outside of these two items, we enjoyed our stay. We spent every day at the pool relaxing. We enjoyed walking along the promenade along the shore. The view is spectacular. On the weekend the pool was very crowded and felt like a big party. The staff that serviced the pool did an outstanding job with so very many people.
