The Grand Horton in San Diego is a very charming place located in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter, just a few blocks from the convention center.
We found it to be unique, picturesque and fun. It lacks a few amenities, like a work-out area, but more than makes up for it with ambiance. The Victorian style one-of-a-kind rooms are much more pleasant than your basic cookie-cutter room.
The staff are friendly and courteous. The restaurant is really good.
Go. Enjoy yourself.
