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!

Hilton can do better.

Pros: Location was good and Hilton facilities are always nice.
Cons: Need more convenience stores or vending open after late hours. No refrigerator or microwave. Cleaning service by passes room after a certain time.
Location: 5 minute walk Gaslamp district or Trolley to take you anywhere in city. Midway 5 minute drive by car or trolley. Easy freeway access to Coronado.
Always enjoy Hiltons. Would have liked the cleaning service to clean our room daily. But, apparently we were in there at the wrong time and were by-passed. There was no refrigerator in the room, so we had to put medicine in the ice bucket to preserve it. We later learned we could "order" a refrigerator, but didn't think to ask because it was so odd that one didn't come standard. This is a great location for seeing the city of San Diego; because light rail is right next to the hotel and it will take you to most of the city with only a short ride time. There are a lot of dining and shopping options within walking distance. If you're driving, freeway access is very easy.

Overnight trip to the Beach

Pros: The bridge that crosses over to Petco Park is cool.
Cons: Would be nice if rooms had a small refrigerator in them.
Location: Petco, Convention center, Gas Lamp all within walking distance
Our stay at the Bayfront Hilton was nice and location is great if you're interested in going to a baseball game, or exploring Gas Lamp. I would have actually preferred something a little closer to Seaport Village. For the price of the room I was a little disappointed that there was not even a small refrigerator in the room to keep drinks cold. Otherwise Hotel is nice, staff is friendly, and check in/check out process was quick and efficient.
