Hilton San Diego Bayfront is the 15th tallest building in San Diego, California and is a prominent fixture in San Diego's skyline. It has a height of 385 ft (117 m) and contains 1,190 rooms. Located in the Marina district of Downtown San Diego, Hilton San Diego Bayfront is a 30-story building that utilizes the modern architectural style and was designed by the architect firm John Portman & Associates. The skyscraper is located directly adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center, along the San Diego Bay.
The hotel is owned by One Park Boulevard, LLC and corporately-operated by Hilton Worldwide.
On May 19, 2008 a natural gas leak caused an explosion that injured 14 construction workers and damaged four floors on the unfinished hotel.
The 30-story tower hotel features 1,190 guest rooms and more than 165,000 square feet (15,300 m2) of meeting space, making it the hotel with the highest ratio of meeting space to hotel rooms in the downtown area. A skybridge connects the parking garage to a crosswalk that goes to Petco Park and the Gaslamp Quarter.
