Older historic hotel that has been brought back to a stylish renovation. Suite was generous and well appointed, bathrooms modern and functional. Hotel restaurant had interesting and delicious breakfast options. Good location for gaslamp district. Parking valets were very good but parking at $42/night was pricy. More than likely would try something on the water IF we return to San... More

San Diego is one of my favorite city's to visit but always with kids or attending conventions. I had never adventured out to explore other hotels in San Diego until recently. The U.S. Grant Hotel is elegant and in a perfect location; 3 blocks from the Horton Plaza Shopping Mall and walking distance to the best restaurants in San Diego.... More

This is my first time staying downtown in San Diego and the US Grant was a great experience. We checked in and got to our suite - huge! I loved the half bath in the "living room" area as I like to wake early and read my book while having my morning coffee. The room was clean and very well... More

We loved the US Grant hotel! My honey had been there decades ago, and didn't recognize it after its facelift (several years ago). It feels opulent when you enter the lobby. The staff are wonderful and attentive. There were many special touches that enhanced our stay there. From the way-too-yummy punch they served by the registration desk in the afternoons,... More

I was here for business and pleasure for 4 days last week. The room is beautiful, has decent space and a large bathroom/shower for comfort. EVerything was perfect from the moment we walked in (being greeted by the Valet) to our check out. We had a minor issue with our washroom sink (it was clogged). We asked them to fix... More

My wife and i were on honeymoon and spent 2 days in this hotel, once we walked into the hotel we were taken back at how lovely the lobby was, you could sit in it for hours and not get bored. We checked in and made our way to our room, yet again we were taken back by how amazing... More

Wow! First time in San Diego and loved it. The Gaslight district is something else! The US Grant is an excellent hotel in a very convenient location. The service was good, the rooms were reasonably clean and comfortable, but the Legacy Suite we'd booked deserves a negative comment. Well, ROOM 917 was called a Suite, but that's really an exaggeration.... More

Great to see you enjoyed pretty much everything! There seem to be two groups of people: those who like the separation of the suite styles and those who prefer the more large open room style (like deluxe rooms which many compliment on). Really just whatever works best for you. I like seeing that you have stayed before and seen the... More

For it's pricepoint, this hotel is average. My first reaction, in the lobby, was somewhere between "seen better days" and "shabby chic." It's a large, grand lobby, but the carpet looks old, as it does in the hallways (hence the "shabby chic.") They definitely could use more staff at the front desk as it took awhile to get checked in... More

Were you traveling with the Amex FHR guest below? Very similar subject line! You two should travel together! Great location, friendly courteous staff (though not enough of them, duly noted!) and nice clean rooms. You are right, these are the fundamentals of a nice hotel. Perhaps after our little facelift in 2016 we will get that luxury image you are... More

I appreciate the 4 star ranking with the mixed feedback. At first I was counting all the good things and then when only 1 bad thing I was excited! But the bad experience was pretty bad so I understand the rating. FHR travelers such as yourself have often stayed in the best of the best so I would anticipate your... More

The US Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego is the most historical and famous hotel in San Diego. It is where presidents have stayed, and has the style and ambiance you would expect from a first class hotel. If you want to do the Gaslamp, and have a upscale experience, the Grant is the place. The lobby and common areas... More
