“Nice place, great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Stayed at the Manchester over Thanksgiving week, was very nice. The room was great, bed was comfortable, and was at the end of the hall , so very quiet. This hotel is close to the airport, easy to get to, and right next to the marina. Wonderful views and you can walk to the gas-lamp district easily. Definitely enjoyed our stay.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay there again. The rooms were excellent, extremely clean, even spotless. Finally the view from the 40th floor bar was well worth the trip alone.

If you're going to San Diego, this is a great choice for a hotel. It is located about 10 minutes away from the airport and is within walking distance of several restaurants, shops, and the Gaslamp District. We were able to walk to the USS Midway from the hotel as well. The hotel is very large, but we never had to wait in a line when needing assistance in the lobby. The rooms were spacious and were kept very clean. The hotel was accommodating when we asked for a humidifier. The only thing we didn't like about the hotel was the amount of time we spent waiting on elevators. We were on the 28th floor, so taking the stairs wasn't really feasible. We would definitely return to this hotel if we go back to San Diego.

Room Tip: We paid for an upgraded view and had a beautiful view of the Coronado Bridge and the city.

From the drop-off at the front door to the departure, everything about this visit was perfect. Now, while it's no full-service-feel resort, for a mega-hotel, this one's pretty dern good. The room was large with an excellent view. I notice the little stuff like scuffed edges on dressers, small pockets of mold in the shower, caulking to cover something...yet here, I noticed nothing but perfection inside my room.

The meeting facilities were nice and the staff was very accommodating across the board.

Room Tip: If you're here for a conference, know which side most of your meetings are on and try to get in...

California Association of Realtors Winter Meetings 2014 were held here, and it is a wonderful facility. It is easy to get around, and there are some great places to eat and shop just steps away!

My room had been just updated and it was wonderful!

Two huge towers adjoining each other w/ massive check in area & rooftop open main pool area above. Plenty of house restaurants from a deli style / coffee area for a quick bite, to a real pub/sports bar, 2 formal restaurants of which one is by the water & a beautiful top bar on one of the towers w/ sweeping views of SD.

Of course you are right next to Seaport Village & 2 blocks away from Gaslamp Quarter for plenty of shops & other dining choices. Besides the main expansive main pool area there is one labeled
adult. Self enforced, because while we were there a couple brought their kid to splash around.

The room was a corner King not huge but adequate, cost a little extra but worth it. The bed was comfy w/ sweeping views from every angle. The windows however were fairly dirty which takes away some of the wow factor. I guess its a big chore to do the windows on both towers on a regular basis but if you are spending hundreds of $'s per night you have expectations.
We got this on a Travelzoo or Groupon deal so I cant be too picky:)

The sitting furniture I found a little too modern & angular & not very comfy, so you are forced to spend more time in bed. There is a nice desk & exec chair w/ plenty of USB jacks & outlets. Big screen TV too. Bathroom was spacious & modern, plenty of towels & toiletries.

Parking you have two choices: self park $28 (ouch) on a adjoining structure w/ easy access or valet w/ a steep $40 (double ouch) price. Hyatt has always been in the forefront of nickel & diming for everything. One reason I don't visit Hyatt as often unless I get a really decent deal & put up w/ the annoying fees. Yes, water bottles available in your room are an extra $5 & WiFi is an additional charge as well, $10. There is a Starbucks across the street so wasn't a big deal. Some Hyatt resorts hit you with a resort fee as well.. this one doesn't.
The best feature of this is Hyatt is the location right next to a lot of the waterfront attractions of SD. There is a Marriott & a Hilton further down the boardwalk a little further away from Seaport Village. An Embassy Suites across the street as well but not waterfront.

Room Tip: Corner King on Seaport tower gives you sweeping views of Coronado Bridge on one side & USS Midwa...

We are staying here for a Realtor convention and to me it is amazing that we have not had to leave the property for any of the meetings. Talk about convenient! The rooms are clean, modern, comfortable and mine has an incredible view of the Harbor. The fact that you don't have to leave the hotel is great - however you probably should get out and just jog down the street to the Gaslamp district and enjoy all the restaurants and fun that it has to offer, or meander to Seaport Village to get some great eats also.

Room Tip: I am on the 22nd floor of the Harbor tower- convenient to all the events etc. The elevators, even t...
