Toilet wouldn't flush, hair in the shower, shower curtain hanging off the rod on one end and alarm clock wasn't working. The worst however was sitting in bed at 10pm and realizing it was wet from the previous occupant urinating in it!

An extremely nice hotel although locate next to the trolley yard and Dole docks which are noisy at night, the views and location is very nice.

Well kept modern hotel. I attended a conference which was held at the hotel. Great location, just across the street from the conference center and a short walk to downtown with many bars and restaurants. Friendly staff. Good gym with free weights and even kettlebells and many machines. My only complaint is the very slow free internet.

You can access Petco Park by way of a walkover bridge. The cost per night seemed to vary so much from day to day, while we were searching for a downtown hotel. It...

The Hilton Bayfront in San Diego is a lovely hotel in a good location, near the Gas Lamp district for a variety of shopping and dining alternatives. It's also near the convention center if that's the purpose of your stay.
