SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Hilton San Diego Bayfront has won four awards from two publications and a prestigious travel program. San Diego Magazine's 2017 Reader's Choice Travel Awards awarded the hotel as the Best Hotel (Overall) and Best Hotel Concierge. The publication's readers were asked to vote for their favorite businesses in various categories in key travel destinations.
California Meetings + Events Magazine readers voted Hilton San Diego Bayfront the Best Downtown Meeting Venue in California in their Best of 2016 Awards.
