Don’t ask me why, but in all my trips to States I’ve never made it to San Diego until now. Having stay at the US Grant I rather regret that. Ideally situated near the gaslight district this historical hotel (with excellent panels explaining it’s story in the lobby) really helps you place the city in context.
The hotel itself is well furnished; whilst the corridors are rather tired the room and public areas are good. Though for myself I wish they made a little more of the historic themes in the room décor. Another gripe I do have however is the comms. Whilst recently decorated the rooms still have prehistoric IT and telecoms in them which is a shame. But in all honesty these are niggles. The is a solid hotel in lovely part of a lovely city – enjoy!
