First off, the good: The hotel has been remodeled nicely and the lobby and rooms are both attractive and fun. Beds were comfy, bathroom spacious and well appointed. We had a Superior King and it was large and well furnished. The Not So Good: We stayed for one night under an American Express Fine Hotels deal and paid a fairly... More

Thank you for your very balanced and fair review. It would appear you truly live up to the name "igetaround" as you seem quite well traveled and have a good eye for consistency and objectivity, which I always appreciate. We do love the Fine Hotels and Resorts Program but the upgrade can be tricky since it is indeed automatic, if... More

This was the first time for many years that I was travelling and spending time in a city mostly on my own I chose the US grant because of its downtown location. It is a fine hotel but what made this a lucky choice for me was the calibre of the staff. The concierge desk is genius. Every one of... More

Stayed at the Grant for a night during 4th of July using my SPG points since it was the most bang for the bucks. Service is top notch just a touch above your normally good Westin Service. We checked in before our room was ready so they took down our phone number to call us when our room was ready.... More

You know I have to admit when I read the review (which was fantastic by the way and thank you so much) I got distracted by the name TheChimmy. All I could think about was the song from Mary Poppins! At first I couldn't remember what movie it was from so I had to google the lyrics and sure enough... More

Stayed here recently for 3 nights. The hotel has an old world charm about it with lots of character. The rooms, whilst not large are more than comfortable. The staff are very obliging and friendly. One of the best things about the hotel is its location. Situated on Broadway it is ideally place for transport and is literally across the... More

The location is wonderful for walking. Quite a few homeless in the area, but not nearly as bad as San Francisco... Easy walk to great restaurants and shopping. The rooms are nice, beds very comfortable. The Grant Grill is a great place for breakfast. Service was very good. The hotel has a fascinating history.

Jared D, Front Office Manager at The US Grant, responded to this review

It is funny you mention San Francisco as a comparison; my sister goes to school around there and she has similar sentiments that they (the homeless) are truly more aggressive up there. I think any fair-weather area is likely to have some since it is so livable down here but its interesting the difference in personality between cities for the... More

Our arrival was via the drive through drop off at the back of the hotel. A bell hop took our luggage whilst the valet only parking took care of the car. At check in there was a minor hiccup as our pre booked room was not on record. However this was sorted in short order and we were allocated a... More

We unreservedly thank you! Sorry again about the confusion at check in... some oddities at times with 3rd party bookings through other websites but most important is that we were able to recover and give you a great stay for your special occasion with us. Thank you for giving us the chance and we look forward to seeing you again.... More

This hotel was established over 100 years ago. It is very upscale and deserving of the rating I gave it. The difference in being a three star and a four star are many, but one of the most important is the staff. This staff went out of their way to accommodate your every need. They were always asking is things... More

Very beautiful historic hotel in the heart of San Diego's downtown area and very close to the gas lamp district. We had a superior room on the 9th floor and we were not disappointed. The hardwood floors (with what appeared to be the original wood) were very beautiful and the room was well laid out and a very good size... More

I can only fault this hotel about the location due to all of the homeless lying around the corner from it where they fight at night and it can be frightening when you are walking to the hotel. However, everything else was fab including the rooms, food, service etc. The concierge Mark is extremely helpful in comparison to Albert who... More

Thank you for the mostly positive review! The location, while so positive to so many since we are so close walking distance to everything, does come with the territory of most downtown warm locations of having some "transient" population as well, as we refer to our less fortunate neighbors and natives. We hope that the City of San Diego continues... More

My mother and I stayed at the Grant in July 2014 not really knowing what to expect. With regards to the building, the lobby was grand and the rooms were immaculate. We stayed in a double queen facing the Westgate Hotel and the natural sunlight made the room absolutely gorgeous. It was large and very clean. The bathroom was fabulous!... More
