I am so glad I chose this hotel! This is a historic hotel in the Gas Lamp District. I wanted to be downtown, but I was unsure of which hotel to choose. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and narrowed my choices. Then I started to second guess myself about whether to stay at the Del Coronado or Grand Hotel del Mar which I had read about...luxury... but 20-30 minutes from downtown San Diego & 3 times the price. The staff at the US Grant was superb, the rooms are very nice and comfy and the food at the Grant Grill is fantastic! I would definitely return to this hotel if my travels take me to San Diego in the future. Oh, and I saw people with their pets, so this would be a wonderful hotel if you needed to bring your pet. Also Valet Parking was very efficient & friendly.
