Following a $21 million re-imagination and renovation of its 357 guest rooms, conference center, and executive board room, the former Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa reemerges this month as San Diego Mission Bay Resort.



San Diego Mission Bay Resort Set to Debut After Recent Major Renovation

Now operated by Noble House Hotels & Resorts, the new luxury resort and spa is set to debut upgraded and enhanced technology, expanded amenities, new casual yet elegant furnishings, modernized guest baths boasting tubs and custom-tile showers and, throughout the conference center, artwork.

“The newly unveiled Mission Bay Resort will appeal to couples, families, leisure and business travelers alike by offering effortless elegance, with activities and comforts of the barefoot chic, vibrant San Diego lifestyle,” says Scott Colee, Noble House’s chief marketing officer.

“We are especially excited to announce the launch of new curated programming that will engage every guest and visitor, and capture the true essence of everything this luxury coastal playground has to offer.”

Coming soon: Look for Mission Bay Resort Owner Pebblebrook Hotel Trust to invest an additional $10.5 million into the lobby, restaurant and public spaces.
