“Great place”
Reviewed June 13, 2008

I've been to the Manchester Grand Hyatt multiple times and it is one of my favorite hotels. It's pricey but the service and facilities are very good.

We paid $140 a night on Priceline and were upgraded for free when we arrived (Thursday). The front desk staff was EXCELLENT. They were very friendly and accomodating. The 24th floor corner room was fantastic. We had views of the bay and the city lights. The location is excellent and you can walk to many great restaurants. Parking fee seemed excessive, but the room rate more than compensated for it.

Loved this hotel. I have stayed in lots of hotels and this is by far one of the best. The service was great, the room was fantastic. And not only that you don't even have to leave the area. Behind the hotel is many little stores and live music. My kids and I had a great time. We also loved the pool.

My wife and I stayed at the Manchaster Grand Hyatt in June 2008 for the San Diego marathon. The lobby was impressive. Room was nicely furnished, but was filthy - there were clumps of dust and dirt under the bed and behind the night stands. Room service was mediocre and definitely not up to the standards of a AAA 4 diamond hotel. Breakfast at Lael's was pretty good, but some dinner entree items (e.g. pizza) were very poor. Staff were responsive and polite, but did nothing to remedy the poor quality food.

I stayed in Manchester Grand Hyatt for 5 days on a conference.
Great location, good looking lobby, average room.
Would not stay there if I had to pay the full price, however.
It is all about location!!!

Manchester Hyatt is in a great location, in walking distance to the Gaslamp District, close to the ferry to Coronado, and on the waterfront near some nice restaurants. My stay was for 7 days while at a conference and it exceeded my expectations. While the hotel was pricey, it seemed as though most of their guests are business travelers ( and it is next to the convention center). The staff was wonderful and the room was spacious and clean.

stayed here for 8 days for a conference...rooms are nice, nice views of the harbour and marina from the 31st floor (got a deal on the harbour tower, 245 a night inc breakfast each day)....

Talking of breakfast, if its included depending on what deal you you may get vouchers for the buffet breakfast at Laels. This can be good, or very very very frustating depending on how full the hotel is. Some days you go down there and theres a massive queue, 20 minute wait (for a buffet breakfast for pete's sake) and the staff arent communicating between themselves about what tables are free and what arent..... So its ok getting free vouchers for breakfast, but if you're customers can't use them, even better....more money in the bank.............This let the whole experience down, extremely frustating as theres a marriot right next door which is my preferred chain usually.....

So basically if you want breakfast, go down early or order room service.....dont bother complaining, you're wasting your time...

Not impressed....to add to the problem, mothers day they shut down the buffet breakfast room so they could charge people for a mothers day buffet brunch, excellent commercial sense as basically all the customers with free breakfast vouchers got shunted off to redfearns or whatever its called which couldnt cope with the demand and basically the whole thing was an absolute SHAMBLES................One of the front of house staff in one of the catering areas needs some attitude readjustment, i basically got told to go find out something myself instead of asking her...how nice...

Why am i not awarding a terrible? The room was good, and the room service was ok, the club sandwich was excellent.......my terrible rating i save for special establishments (see other reviews)..............

  • Liked — the location is nice, they've spent a lot of money doing the waterfront up in san diego...
  • Disliked — poor service for breakfast, getting vouchers i couldnt use, arrogant indifferent staff and poor management
