Hilton San Diego Bayfront

San Diego, CA, USA 2008


This 1,200-room convention headquarters hotel is positioned to maximize views of the San Diego Bay. With a significant use of glass on the exterior to reflect the sky and surrounding skyline, this hotel serves to complement the activities along the bay and fulfill the hotel needs of the convention center.

The podium contains 106,050 sf (9,850 sm) of meeting space, including a grand ballroom, a junior ballroom, and 22 meeting rooms. Other amenities include a business center, retail, health club, lounge, café, as well as the Vela restaurant and Spa Aquazul.

Building upon the success of the hotel, a planned expansion will add a new guestroom tower and ballroom/meeting facilities. The new tower will consist of 468 keys on 24 guestroom floors with six levels of lobby, amenity, meeting and support spaces, including a fitness/spa facility. A column-free grand ballroom of approximately 34,500 sf (3,205 sm) of space and roughly 11,800 sf of break-out meeting space will enhance the current conferencing package for the hotel.
