The hotel is right next to the convention center and is very nice with great views. The staff was helpful and the gym is fabulous. A bit of a walk to restaurants, etc, but good for the convention center.

Stayed at the Hilton Bayfront because a conference was being held there. Beautiful hotel. We took clients to dinners in the Gas Lamp District and could easily walk to this amazing, fun section of downtown San Diego. Was a bit shocked to enter to a half-made bed and had to call housekeeping to finish the room. Also, the bathroom light...

I stayed three nights there while attending a conference and promoting my book with the publisher in the same conference. The service at the hotel was really top-notch that everyone of the staff was greeting the guests with a smile. I checked in on a Saturday afternoon around the same time other conference participants were packed in the check-in queue....

I was there for a conference. The hotel is nice and the rooms are clean and nice. The view is amazing and the staff is really gentle. I think that, considering that the hotel is 4 stars, the price is a little expansive.

Lobby very noisy when I arrived. I was traveling with a young dog and was dismayed that the nearest grassy patch outside any of the doors leading outside was equivalent of at least 1/2 city block not including the time it took to go down elevator and out the hotel. So not truly pet friendly except that they do allow...

Hilton really need to address their issue on insisting free WiFi is only available in room for HHonors members.

The rooms at this hotel are spacious, clean and beautiful. Odysea has great food and service. Chef Adam- the one with the smile for days, took care of me with all my dietary restrictions. Sit at the open kitchen and enjoy great food, conversation and a relaxing night.
