This bay side hotel spares no effort in spoiling its guests with luxury, but still keeps to the moderately priced side of hotel accommodations. Right next to the Seaport Village, the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina is the perfect hotel to enjoy waterfront dining, a trip to the San Diego Zoo, the hotel’s 446-slip marina, or the two free-form outside pools.
A definite winner in terms of prime waterfront locations, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel delights its guests with breathtaking views of either the port or the waterfront. The hotel has been built on a former shipyard and translated its historic location into a clean, light-blue nautical themed designed for its more than a thousand oversized rooms. You can also enjoy the bay view right from the hotel’s only heated saltwater pool, a first for San Diego.
