The location is quite good, but the rooms--while clean--feel a bit distressed. Being an older hotel, you hear a fair amount of ambient noise from the corridors and through the walls. The desk staff is rather indifferent. Also, in the hotel description on Trip Advisor (and in the confirmation email) it says they offer you "a complementary bottle of water." If you drink it, they will charge your credit card $5 after you leave (in my case three days later). Reached out to the hotel, but got reaction. Pretty low class.

The hotel has bags of character and the staff were friendly and helpful. Quaint lift- one has views through windows with little rooms dressed from a bygone age. Nice touch. There was a different pianist each evening in the bar. They were good quality and even if you didn't want to sit in the bar they could be heard from a number of lounges. Only disappointment was the wifi. We were on 4th floor and the signal was very hit and miss. This is something that needs addressing with today's expectations. The hotel is ideally located in the Gaslamp quarter and the hop on hop off bus tours stops right by the building. There's lots to see and do and this was a great place to base ourselves.

In the heart of downtown San Diego just blocks from the Convention Center and across from Petco Park, this property provides gorgeous Victorian style rooms and obtain an attentive service-oriented staff. I was initially greeted by Charles upon arrival...him and his staff were incredibly friendly. The Front desk agents were also very helpful and hospitable. I would definitely visit the Horton Grand Hotel again.

Had great experience with Erick with valet and help with baggage. He was extremely friendly and sincere helping us. He was knowledgeable and provided lots of great suggestions for our visit and answered all our questions with a smile. Thanks Erick. You really made us feel welcome.

The woman at the front desk was not nice at all, she made me feel uncomfortable since the moment I arrived. My room is above some engine making a lot of noise and the full room including the bed is vibrating, and the smell in the room is awful. It's impossible to sleep here. At 1:30 AM I had to go to the front desk because they were not replying at the phone, I waited 20 minutes because the woman was having a coffee outside. Then she told me I couldn't change to another room. I've been traveling for 24 hours, I have to attend a conference in San Diego this week starting tomorrow, and I can't believe that I won't be able to sleep in a hotel that was supposed to be good... And they propose no solution...
