Hotel Renovations

What's New in San Diego

In April 2019, Hilton San Diego Airport/Harbor Island located on scenic San Diego Bay unveiled 211 beautifully appointed guestrooms after a multi-million-dollar renovation. Along with interior upgrades, the modern guestrooms and suites all feature waterfront views, offering a balcony or patio with comfortable outdoor seating to enjoy the bay vistas. The hotel’s location on Harbor Island offers easy access to watersports and marina activities and is only minutes from San Diego International Airport, downtown, beautiful beaches and ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station. 

Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa completed a comprehensive $21 million renovation in September 2019. The resort overlooks Mission Bay and offers 357 rooms and suites, a waterfront restaurant, poolside lounge, an extensive fitness center and luxurious full-service spa. The renovation encompasses all guestrooms, the hotel's expansive conference center, the executive board rooms, and all common areas and lobbies. In addition to new paint, flooring, lighting, finishes, wall treatments and upgraded technology, new custom furniture has been installed throughout the resort. 

Hotel Renovations

In July 2019, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront completed a $23 million renovation to its 1,190 guest rooms and corridors at this waterfront property adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park. The enhanced guest rooms and suites feature a nautical, contemporary design and amenities including modern furniture, mini coolers, updated restrooms, additional power and USB ports, 55” HD TVs and more. The reimagined rooms offer chic design accents including winged headboards, sconces, blackout and sheer drapery, lounge chairs, floor lamps, mirrors, bathroom vanities and nightstands. Big picture windows showcase San Diego’s incredible city and bay views. In addition, the rooms now offer Crabtree and Evelyn beauty amenities and Hilton’s popular Serenity Collection luxury bed and linens. Hallway corridors also received a refreshed look with new decorative lighting, textured wallcovering, sconces, artwork and more. In conjunction with the renovation, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront became the first Hilton in California to offer Connected Room technology that enables guests to control their hotel stay from their mobile device using the Hilton Honors app to manage temperature control, lighting and window coverings. Guests can also load streaming media to in-room TVs. As part of Hilton’s commitment to sustainable travel, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront offers locally grown, organic options at its restaurants and bars, towel and sheet reuse program, installation of a laundry system that reclaims 70 percent of water; built-in occupancy sensors for thermostat and light switches, and Hilton’s LightStay Program that accurately measures and reports on the hotel’s energy consumption to identify areas for improvement.

In June 2019, the San Diego Marriott Del Mar completed a multi-million-dollar renovation to its guest rooms, lobby, outdoor space, and a revitalized restaurant. The lobby has been enlarged with open front desk pods and includes new seating as well as a new onsite coffee shop, Terra Café, which offers grab-and-go breakfast options and proudly serves Starbucks Coffee. The hotel’s award-winning restaurant and bar, Arterra, was redesigned with contemporary décor in its indoor and outdoor seating. Inspired by cuisines from around the world and featuring San Diego’s fresh, local and sustainable products, Executive Sushi Chef Hoh dazzles taste buds with hand-crafted raw creations and Chef Evan Cruz created an updated menu for general dining. Groups have a choice of three private dining spaces that incorporate Arterra’s new design themes. The Marriott Del Mar’s guestrooms have been fully renovated and feature hardwood floors, new beds and HDTVs with Netflix streaming.
