Hilton Worldwide has named Tracy Walker as area general manager for the San Diego region, with duties that include direct oversight of the 1,190-room Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel.

A Hilton statement said Walker will also provide regional leadership for Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, DoubleTree by Hilton San Diego Mission Valley, and Embassy Suites by Hilton La Jolla.

Walker started her hospitality career with Hilton more than 25 years ago and most recently served as general manager of the 2,860-room Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort in Honolulu. She directed a multimillion-dollar renovation and expansion at that property.

Hilton San Diego Bayfront, located downtown at One Park Blvd., is the region’s third-largest hotel by room count and is majority-owned by Sunstone Hotel Investors of Aliso Viejo. Hilton manages the property and also holds a minority ownership stake.
