The US Grant is a gorgeous, historic hotel that I have stayed at before, but this time we got put in what seemed to be a more handicapped accessible room. The biggest disadvantage to this was the shower which was configured so that you can't help flooding the bathroom floor. We were also very let down by the pricey and... More

Dear Guest, We deeply apologize for the unfortunate In Room dining experience that you endured during your recent visit. We simply were not at our best and felt we owed you a note to communicate our dissatisfaction with our performance. We know that everything we do communicate to our guest just how capable we are and we regret that in... More

We stayed at the US Grant for three nights in February. The hotel was very nicely renovated, the rooms were nice and well decorated and furnished. Shortly after checking in we noticed a HUGE FLAW - they kept the old wooden window frames! Not only that they looked dirty and the paint was cracked but they didn't stop the noise... More

Dear Guest, Firstly please accept my sincere gratitude for the wonderful comments you mentioned with regards to your accommodations. We pride ourselves in providing our guests with an exceptional and luxurious experience and I am therefore truly disappointed that you were unable to fully experience this because of the street noise you mentioned in your review.

We took a last-minute anniversary trip and chose the US Grant by reputation. We were a little wary that the price (affordable) meant it would be more shabby chic than super chic. But we were very pleasantly surprised. From the bellhops and room service, to valet and housecleaning, everything came faster than promised, was grander than advertised, was more helpful... More

Public spaces are beautiful, the location is good (albeit a little sketchy) and the breakfast that came with booking through AmEx was fabulous but I wouldn't say that we felt all that welcome. Something went wrong with booking so we ended up with a couple of double beds instead of a king. The Grant was full so they couldn't change... More

Sometimes you just fall in love right away. This is old world class right on the edge of the Gaslamp with very proper service and elegance dripping from every crystal on every chandelier. Yet somehow it's not stuffy. It's amazing how some places can pull that off. I only spent one night here, but managed to explore most of the... More

My wife and I stayed for the weekend for a getaway from the kids and work. The hotel was in a perfect location. Restaurants, clubs and the Balboa Park all in walking or taxi range. The employees were all top notch! Mark, the chief concierge, was a pleasure and all the advise he gave was correct. If you want the... More

Stayed at the U.S. Grant with my family on March 11, 2011. Everything from the valet welcome, check-in and bell service was first class. As a platinum SPG member, we were upgraded to one of the Signature Suites which was incredible. The showers in these suites are extraordinary and no one in the family wanted to get out of the...

Stayed here with my fiance in January this year. The hotel is centrally located in downtown San Diego and everything around is very walkable. Rooms are very spacious and beautifully furnished. Very comfortable beds (we had a huge King bed with lots of pillows) and nice design in general. Street noise can be heard sometimes as the hotel building is... More

This is a old hotel with a modern look. The hotel is very clean but the rooms are very small. The hotel is within walking distance of the Gas lamp Quarters. The parking is a little expensive $32.00 a night for Valet service. The only complaint I would have is there is no pool on site.

This is truly a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the hotel staff is second to none. We have stayed at many luxury hotels around the world and none have been able to obtain the same level of quality as the US Grant. This was our second time staying at this hotel, and we will return... More
