My husband and I with another couple recently stayed two nights at the US Grant Hotel and would like to share some of our thoughts and concerns. First, we have no complaints about the staff including the bellhop and the valet assistants. They were very helpful and courteous. However, we were dissatisfied with some of the incidental charges including $13.95... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights this September. I selected the US Grant based on my love for historic architecture & the high traveller ratings; our expectations were exceeded! This hotel was built in 1910 by Ulysses S Grant Jr.- it was one of the most opulent accommodations of its time, boasting private baths in each suite.... More

It is very tough writing a review for a hotel you want to give love to, but just can't because of several little things that take away from the experience. So, I'll do my best to give props where due, but also be honest where the mark was missed. My wife and I were looking for a weekend getaway over... More

Your review was very detailed, YOPP and the two pictures in high resolution were very informative, thank you for that. Did you know that there are now a whopping 790+ pictures of our historic property available on this site, that were taken by discerning explorers such as yourself? Great coverage indeed. We of course remember this unfortunate incident and that... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago while attending a wedding. Great location, with walking distance to the Gas Lamp District restaurants. The first person we met at the Parking Valet area was Eddy. He is very professional and what an asset to the U.S.Grant Hotel. Sometimes the first person you meet at a hotel sets your attitude. This... More

You actually hit on a really important service point; the first contact. Fortunately, our Ace Valet team is the best of the best and continually set us up for success from first meeting to final farewell. Thank you for the review! I would like to formally request the list of the other "best in the area" hotels to see what... More

Simply awesome! This is a beautiful property situated perfectly in downtown San Diego as it is wonderful walking to Gas Lamp, Little Italy, the harbor and Maritime museum. Also, very short distance to the zoo and Balboa Park. The beauty of this property begins as soon as you pull up to the valet and enter the lobby. Very ornate with... More

Having stayed in several hotels in San Diego on recent business trips this was the first time at the US Grant. It is located on Broadway toward the top of the Gaslamp district, lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are a decent size, comfortable and easy to work in. But linen all very clean and room frequently... More

We just really like seeing people in the morning; especially in the Grant Grill! Jared, Director of Front Office. More

We came to the San Diego region and divided up our stay between suburbia (at the Grand Del Mar) and downtown (at the USG). The property itself takes you back in time. The fixtures, the exterior of the hotel, the long corridors almost make you believe that a gentleman in a nice bowler or a Stetson is going to come... More
