About the Project
The $241 million, 1,007,118 SF, Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel was completed in 2008. It is comprised of 1,190 guestrooms with 30 luxury suites, a 34,000-SF Grand Ballroom, a 25,000-SF Junior Ballroom, a health club and spa, a bar, a restaurant, and a heated saltwater swimming pool.
Hensel Phelps Development was a co-developer for the Hilton San Diego Convention Center Hotel, located on a 13-acre waterfront site. Hensel Phelps Development was responsible for designing and constructing the new seven-story, 1,955-stall parking garage that provides 800 parking stalls for the hotel, with the balance of parking spaces for public use. Areas of expertise provided by the Development team included project financing, P3 – Public Private Partnerships, and project management/owner’s representation.
The Hilton San Diego Bayfront opens a front-door to San Diego’s vibrant waterfront, providing unparalleled views and direct access to San Diego Bay. The hotel is adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center, across the street from PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres and minutes from the San Diego International Airport (SAN). It is a short walk from downtown San Diego’s vibrant Gaslamp Quarter and its many entertainment and recreational amenities, as well as world-class shopping and dining. The main entrance to the hotel is elevated to take advantage of the property’s unique orientation along the water and to allow guests direct pedestrian access to the 4.3-acre exterior waterfront park and the San Diego Convention Center.
