“Superb Location”
Reviewed May 12, 2010

This hotel is in a superb location near Seaport Village. It's close to everything and the there's a trolley stop across the street. We had a room with a great view of the harbor. The room itself had a king sized bed and was pretty clean. The decor is slightly older as other reviewers have commented but it fit well with the overall style of the hotel. The only drawbacks to the room were the lack of free wired or wireless internet access and the bed was a little lumpy which is why I am not giving 5 stars.

The hotel has an outdoor pool and a hot tub on the 4th floor. There was also a few fire pits near the pool so you could sit outside at night. Since it was still chilly when we visited, we made use of the fire pits every night. A nice amenity.

The staff were courteous and helpful. When we checked in and requested a room with a view, they gladly obliged.

I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit San Diego.

Arrived late and slightly dubious given some previous reviews. Was upgraded to a premium view room. Check in was swift. Porter was excellent and explained all room amenities. Room was spacious, nice empty fridge to put own produce in. Decent coffee maker (although being picky would have preferred china cups instead of disposable cups but I know this is quite the norm in the states). Good amount of storage and nice spacious bathroom. Nothing to fault room wise. The decor is a little dated, but the king bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. I heard other people moaning that there were shower curtains over the bath instead of shower cubicles, but they were clean and totally prevented water from spilling on to the floor. The baths were the typical rather shallow american baths but there was nothing wrong with them. No the TV wasn't a plasma but then I dont go away to watch TV and as long as the picture is OK then I dont mind! Housekeeping was prompt and efficient, always plenty of towels and hot water.

I am not usually a fan of the big buffet breakfast but found it to be delicious with plenty of choice and great service.

The pool area was lovely, my only complaint would be with lazy guests who when they have finished around the pool are too idle to put their used towels in the large bin so other guests would know which loungers are available. The sun loungers had nice mattresses on them. There was a nice pool bar up on the sun terrace and food was delivered to the terrace via ordering over the telephones up by the pool. The food served up there was superb and I thoroughly recommend the Jerk Chicken Salad.

The Top of the Hyatt Bar was ok. I prefer to be outdoors in such a beautiful place, the view was magnificent but I thought they could make more of it.

Sallys on the water was great for sitting out on the waterfront sipping cocktails and we had a nice dinner there.

I REALLY hope to return to San Diego (my husband was attending a conference) I have been to several American cities and it has to be my favourite. Climate superb (rubbish about gray May, it was incredibly sunny May), sea not to cold to swim in, dining out fantastic (quality rather than quantity) people charming, city immaculate. Loved the whole area and would without doubt stay in this location and hotel (- friends were at the Marriott next door which we liked a lot less, apart from Roys Bar where we drank cocktails outside most evenings).

ONLY ONE COMPLAINT ABOUT WHOLE TRIP - THE TRAIN DRIVERS WHO SEEMED OBSESSED WITH HONKING THEIR HORNS SO LOUDLY ALL NIGHT. LOCALS LAUGHED BUT SAID THERE HAD BEEN A LOT OF ACCIDENTS - MY ANSWER INSTALL BARRIERS!!

The Manchester Grand is a superlative hotel...ranks with the very best throughout the world. My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the service, staff and amenities. We were there as part of a Naval Academy Class Reunion. The Grand handled the large group with apparent ease.

I have travelled around the world for many years and a hotel does not get better than this. The facility was immaculate, the food impressive, the staff very responsive and the management delightful to work with. The whole atmosphere was terrific. I would eagerly stay there again.

Every employee I encountered was very friendly, anxious to please and make the stay enjoyable. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. Although my room was on the 14th floor and across from the train and light rail, I didn't notice when they came by unless I was looking for them. Good access to walk downtown.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel from 19 to 23 April and had a wonderful time. We were there for a Naval Academy Class Reunion. The room was excellent and had a great view of the Bay and Ocean. Service from the front desk to housekeeping was great. The banquet dinner was superb. We had no problems similar to some of the previous reviews. The food at Sally Restaurant was outstanding. I would definately stay here again and will highly recommend it to my friends.
