I was here on business and was a little leary when looking at this hotel on line. Many hotels looks great in pictures but are horrible when you get there. This hotel was spectacular! It is like stepping back in time from the busy homeless lined streets of San Diego. The staff upgraded us at check in. We were on... More

Just like Snoopy says, "Keep Looking Up...That's the Secret of Life..." Thank you for raving review Patricia! We were all thrilled reading it. Robes can never be too fluffy but let us know when the bed is not soft enough for you when you hopefully return. We can sure help fluff that as well a bit! Wishing you safe travels... More

The hotel is clearly a classic. Beautiful Lobby and general rooms. Guest room was nice although small. The furniture especially the love seat was just uncomfortable. Small bathroom. Room service was spotty usually late and inconsistent. The biggest gap was simply electrical outlets to charge a phone or IPad. There are easy options such as power strips by the desk,... More

A lot of people probably don't know this is an SPG property. I'll definitely be coming back more now that I know. This is probably the nicest hotel in San Diego for many reasons and for many purposes. It's convenient to almost everything. It's luxurious. It's got all the things that come with luxury: exceptional service, comforts, dining, etc. And... More

Service was great. Room was on the small side. Visited the dining/bar a few times. Bartenders were great but the waitresses were hit and miss with rudeness. Bellmen were fast and courteous. Maid came in room while I was in shower. Little shocking to say the least. Overall decent but over priced for the size of room (had superior King)

Beautiful lobby area, convenient valet only parking behind the hotel (under building), excellent staff interactions, welcomed my service dog with a fluffy dog bed and food dishes. Convenient to shopping, restaurants, Balboa Park, and nearby San Diego attractions. Rooms are beautiful and well maintained, please remember that being a historic hotel, not every room has a tub, book carefully if... More

I am a Virtuoso travel agent who was recently in San Diego for a funeral. It was a quick one night stay but I had not seen this hotel before. We arrived later than expected and found we had been upgraded to a beautiful Presidential Suite. After a very long and hard day this was the best news possible. We... More

I stayed there two nights for business. The hotel lobby is beautiful and has the elements of a high end European luxury hotel. It's very large and has multiple seating areas and is not loud. You can actually have a non formal meeting, while enjoying your coffee. The Grill for a cocktail during happy hour, was also great, and service... More

We salute the Bowmans for choosing us and yes, Hoddads is just THE burger place. We love them too. If you go the next time to Ocean Beach, stop at South Beach Grill for their famous fish tacos before having your entrée burger up the street at the original Hoddads. It was an honor to have you as our guests... More

My husband and I were attending a conference at the hotel and booked rooms for two nights. The US Grant is located in downtown San Diego right in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter. It is within walking distance of several wonderful restaurants and a mall. It has a classic old world sophisticated charm that you experience as soon as... More

We stayed here for three nights and even though we were upgraded to the Legacy suite upon arrival, we really wished we had opted to switch rooms. The room was beautiful, but our bathroom was TINY. 2 people could not be in there at once. If you wanted the door to remain open while you were in there in was... More
