I travel to San Diego every summer to attend an international conference and I have stayed in many different hotels throughout the years. Every year I was always attracted to The Horton Grand Hotel for its historic look. Finally, I was able to stay a whole week and it did not disappoint. The charm is not only on the outside, but in the lobby, staircase (brought piece by piece from Austria) and the rooms as well.
I was given one of the 2nd floor rooms with a small balcony facing 4th street. Despite the noise level at night (which management informed me at the time of check-in) I truly enjoyed the "old feel" of the small room (which includes a working fireplace!).
The hotel is in an idea location: close to the convention center, a block away from 5th street and a couple of blocks away from the mall (Horton Plaza).
