My last stay with Hilton San Diego Bayfront has really pissed me off. With a Hilton crdit card in pocket, I've decided to explore other Hilton properties in San Diego downtwon area, and ended up staying at this Hampton Inn for three nights.
I would say the management team of this Hampton Inn has really put their thoughts to work and I am very much impressed. I have virtually been greeted by every staff there during my stay. Have been staying with many hotels, I can totally sense that staff there are happy to work. Their greetings come from hearts and are just so natural, making you feel you are welcomed by your close friends. And of course, such friendly staff could take care of your any requests. The management team is great to keep the employees happy. It means a lot to customers.
In those high end hotels, you are surrounded by politeness. Yet act politely is not the same as being friendly. That makes a HUGE difference, especially when issues come up, surprising you not in a good way. During my last stay at Hilton Bayfront when I found towels in bathroom full of someone else's hair, the hotel reacted very politely. But I don't feel they actually care about customer's feelings.
Other perks include fresh, hot breakfast free to all guests, shuttle to the airport, etc.
Here comes the unpleasant downside:
The building is not built well in terms of sound proof. You can hear all the noise especially at night. From the noice on street to the voice of your neighbor. You can hear everything. Forget about reading or enjoying a quite moment there. It is just impossible.
Luckily I fall asleep fast and deep.
Overall, with all pros and cons, I would say you get what you pay for.
