“Luxury, service and great location. Slept great, staff made my vacation easy!”
From the moment you arrive, it is very beautiful. They staff was friendly, courteous and attentive. When we arrived, they sent up a variety of fruit and a welcome card. Albert and Mark from the concierge desk advised us and helped us set up or travel arrangements. For the first few days we walked or used a transit card for trolleys and buses to get to various attractions, zoo, seaworld, museums, etc. We were in San Diego for a week. The last few days we used a company called TravCar. The great thing about them, they don't jack up the prices like the airport rentals, its a flat fee and they are open until 9:30 pm. You can return the car the same day, get a shuttle to your hotel and don't have to pay for parking. if you want a quick good economic breakfast, IHOP express and Jamba Juice are both around the corner. Horton Plaza, the mall is right across the street as well. At Ross, we picked up a few extra travel essentials.
There were a few hiccups with tidyness of the room and turndown service, but all we addressed immediately. My two boys loved getting the chocolates and one night cookies. My one visit to the Grant Grill I was not impressed with the food or drinks (see other review). After a long day of local attractions, it was great having the large jetted tub for relaxation.
Overall the stay was exceptional. For the price it was a steal. Comfortable, oppulent, quiet, great staff. Thank you to Jared Dayton for setting up our accomodations. Thank you to all the staff for giving us a wonderful stay in San Diego. Contact them directly for best rates. If you are on the fence between this hotel and another, take this one, you will not regret it.
Call directly for best rates, ask for Jared Dayton. Ask about getting upgraded to the historic 11th...
