Liked the ability to walk to the Gaslamp district from the hotel. We didn't like all the fees associated with the room such as the resort fees.

Dear Catherine, It was a pleasure to have you join us and we are delighted that you so enjoyed the comforts of your room and our central and vibrant location. We apologize if our published resort fees were a surprise, though this is quite typical of hotels in the city. We hope your time with us made use of the inclusions of that fee, perhaps with some time in the pool. We thank you once more for sharing your comments and we look forward to hosting you again one day soon. Regards, Steve Cowan, General Manager

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Please accept my sincere apology for the longer than normal wait times at check-in; I can understand your frustration. We pride ourselves in giving the best possible service, and I’m sorry we fell short in this instance. Our industry is facing staffing challenges due to the recent pandemic and we are very proud of the work our team is doing during this time. I deeply appreciate your patience and understanding as our property recovers. There is an option for future heck-ins at our hotel and most other Hilton properties; Contactless Arrival is available through the Hilton Honors app for Hilton Honors members. Digital Key allows you to check in on the app before you arrive or while you're on your way, pick the room that is right for you, and unlock your door with your phone. I hope that next time you’re in the area, you’ll be consider staying with us again.
