Downtown San Diego - Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego

Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Why We Love It

  • 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

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

Enjoyed Most: The location and the beautiful hotel itself.
Other Comments: The location is perfect and the hotel is very clean and well kept. There is a Starbucks, a restaurant and a gelatto place within the hotel and you can walk to Seaport Village. Tons of places to eat all around and mostly everything is within walking distance.

Enjoyed Most: The view

Enjoyed Most: The hotel was nicely decorated and the location was perfect for viewing the bay and attending a Padre game at Petco Park.
Other Comments: At check-in, we were given the chance to upgrade for $40 more. This was for a bay view/king room. The view was special but we were put in a "handicapped" room...on the 18th floor? Everything was low to the floor, bars everywhere in the bathroom but no towel bars? There was a fold-down bench seat in the shower/tub. We are old but not that old. I will now make sure that when I am offered an upgrade, I will ask if it's for a handicapped room. However, I would expect to be told up front by the front desk personnel. Oh yeah, can Hilton provide, at least provide 3 bath towels instead of 2?

Enjoyed Most: Location House keeping people were very pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. They quickly made sure we had what we needed when we asked for it. The gym was very nice and attendant also very pleasant. Wish they allowed 12 year olds.
Other Comments: Had my three kids with me and didn't feel comfortable that the Narcotics anonymous group was there. Many people from the group at the pool, lobby, etc. Also, room was very small and had no mini fridge which is an inconvenience for hose of us with kids.
