If you do bring your own Web-enabled device, you also can use it to order room service, request room amenities, get a valet and book local tours of the San Diego harbor and Temecula wine country. The services even work off of the hotel's property at nearby places like the San Diego Convention Center and PETCO Park.
And if the iPad and other guest portal services go well, the hotel will consider expanding the offerings this summer. The Hilton San Diego Bayfront will look at lending out iPod Touches so that you can place food and beverage orders poolside or request towels. What we're looking forward to is the ability to use our iPhone to pre-order a cinnamon soy latte at the onsite Starbucks from our room or off-site to avoid standing in line—score.
