Mission Bay is known for salty calm waters full of kayakers, catamarans and paddle boarders. Located a few minutes from downtown San Diego, this aquatic playground is housed within the 4,600-acre Mission Bay Park offering a variety of waterways, seaside parks, oceanfront boardwalks and beautiful vistas.

Perfectly positioned on Mission Bay Park’s waterfront is the redesigned San Diego Mission Bay Resort. The luxury resort recently underwent a $32 million renovation throughout the entire 18-acre property.

Formerly the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa, the resort has relaunched with a new name and an upscale vibe.

All of the 357 guestrooms and suites have been upgraded reflecting an open airy beach experience. Carpets are swirls of blue and beige, exposed wood beams decorate ceilings, huge televisions and comfy oversized beds, lounge chairs and sofas ensure relaxing down time. Rooms and suites in tower feature balconies and private patios, some with fire pits, overlooking the boardwalk and bay positioned for perfect sunset viewing.

The open-air guest registration area makes it a breeze to safely and quickly go through the check-in process. Just outside the lobby lies the 4,000-foot outdoor pool area, complete with private cabanas, plush lounge chairs, Wi-Fi and televisions.

All restaurants feature outdoor dining options enabling guests to enjoy San Diego’s perfect climate, radiant sunsets and lively people watching. Mission Joe offers morning coffees, juices, sandwiches and healthy bowls, Plaza del Sol places diners around a huge fire pit for small sharable plates and Covewood restaurant offers tasty pizzas, steaks, seafood and cocktails.

Steps away from rooms and suites, guests can enjoy fishing excursions, paddle boarding, jet skies, waterskiing and sailing as well as sunset beach walks, rollerblading , biking, volleyball, tennis, a fully equipped fitness center and a full-service spa.

San Diego Mission Bay Resort is located at 1775 East Mission Bay Drive, reservations available at Mission Bay Resort or 619.677.1161.
