Downtown San Diego - Gaslamp Quarter

Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • For an urban setting with a resort-like vibe, the Hilton is your best bet
  • Rooms have the basic Hilton, business-traveler ambiance, but there's an outdoor saltwater pool, waterslide and full spa
  • The hotel is positioned to maximize the blue bay views (rather than downtown) from its pool deck, restaurants and most rooms
  • PETCO Park is directly across the street

Occupying prime downtown waterfront real estate across the street from PETCO Park, The Hilton San Diego Resort draws families, business travelers and those seeking to explore the area's nearby attractions and amusement parks.

The guest rooms, which offer views of the bayfront and city skyline, have a neutral color palette and streamlined aesthetic. Rooms come equipped with a large work desk, but Wi-Fi is an extra charge.

Guests can take in the SoCal rays in the sleek outdoor terrace facing the bay, which has a heated pool with a waterslide and two hot tubs. A modern fitness center is also on-premise, and there is a full-service spa.

The hotel's signature upscale restaurant serves California cuisine. Lighter fare and drinks can be had in the more casual lobby bar, as well as at the on-site sports bar and in the pool area. In addition, there is a frozen yogurt shop on site along with a Starbucks.

A pedestrian bridge provides easy access to the nearby PETCO Park and the Gaslamp Quarter. Among the area's various family-friendly attractions, the San Diego Zoo is about a 10-minute drive away, while SeaWorld is about a 15-minute drive away.

Front staff were exceptional in helping us get the kind of room we wanted. It took some doing because the hotel was so full but we finally got a room large enough to accommodate some friends stopping by before dinner. All staff, at the concierge, front desk, even the restaurant were delightful and went out of their way to delivery friendly service. We’ll come back!

Other Comments
There was a $40/night fee not mentioned on TravelZoo. Normally TravelZoo is good about mentioning all fees/taxes, etc.
