Check in went well, the staff were friendly and professional. We got a corner room on the 23rd floor with views toward petco park and Coronado bridge I the other side. Our room was straightened up by housekeeping everyday. Room was quiet other than one night when the banana boat was being loaded. Room was reasonably clean. The bathroom could have been better. I cleaned some crusties off the light switch. There were marks, dust, and grime on the door as well as some spots on the walls and a thick black hair on the ceiling of all places. Minor issues, not as bad as I’m making it sound and not bad enough to complain about. Overall we were very happy. Would stay there again. Nice hotel and close to everything we wanted to see.

Everything was perfect but "We were not given complimentary water bottles" on check-in and had to pay $3.25/bottle in both rooms. When I asked the housekeeper, she stated water bottles are and given when getting the room keys during check-in. (Hhmmmm)...waiting to see if they will waive fee.

Nice hotel with a beautiful bay view and view of Coronado Island. Added plus that it is walking distance to the convention center, Gaslamp district and Petco park and much more!

Didn't want to leave

Pros: This hotel had the smoothest elevators I've ever ridden. View from room was spectacular. Staff was very friendly and super responsive.
Cons: Intermittent WiFi. Sometimes could get service and sometimes couldn't. Charge was $13 a day (too much). Thought Spa was too expensive (bummer).
Location: Great view of SD Bay and Coronado island. Next to convention center and across the street from Petco Park. Walking distance from Gas Lamp district.
Soon after arriving to my room, I was surprised to receive a text message from the staff asking if there was anything they could do to make my stay more comfortable. Impressed! I did ask for a few things and each instance the response was timely. The attached restaurants were excellent. There was also a Starbucks attached which I used once. The gym facility was nice but unfortunately lack of available time didn't allow me to use it. Overall, I was very pleased with the staff and would definitely recommend to others and stay here again.

The hotel is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. The location is convenient, walking distance to the Gaslamp, next door to the convention center, and a $9.50 ferry (10 minute) trip to Coronado. Love San Diego and my stay at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.

Great, quiet and convenient

Great hotel with sound proof walls, amazing pool area, 2 jacuzzis open until 11pm, short walk to Gaslamp, short drive to Coronado and several amenities on site. This will be our go to hotel for all San Diego trips!

Great Hotel Centrally Located!!

This was a great location to stay in. Very central to anything you can want to do while in San Diego. Right across from the Gas Lamp District with all it's great restaurants and bars and the Padres! But also convenient to get to the Zoo, Balboa Park, Coronado Island, Mission Beach and La Jolla!! The staff was very friendly and always helpful. And the Spa was AMAZING!
