“Hotel for Big Conferences”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

This Hyatt has a grand lobby, hugh pool area, within walking distance to Convention Center, Gaslamp District and waterfront. Great views of water from rooms. Two hugh towers house thousands of guests.
I had corner room that was spacious, clean and furniture was in good condition. Hotel soaps & shampoos are very ncie, bath has make-up mirror and robes. No flat-screen TV and small closet are biggest complaints. Noise from pool area, harbor sircraft and boats can be heard in room.
This is not a cozy hotel and the lobby can be filled with conference attendees.
TIP: When getting a cab walk toward the gift soap side of the hotel and get the cab from the street. By the time the cab pulls up to the main entrance and then through all the other cars in the enrance driveway you have wasted at least 10-15 minutes.

Pros:
The pool has a lot of activities, and has a play area too! The staff were very friendly.Seaport Village was literally at the back of the hotel. Rooms were VERY comfy, quiet and spacious and not to mention clean! Great view of San Diego and the marina from every floor. Smores every night down at the pools fire pits. Gaslamp District just a walking distance from the hotel, Seaworld and San Diego Zoo and other amusement parks were a good distance from the hotel. Got a good price for the room! Family friendly too!

Cons:
The sounds of the train horns made falling asleep hard. Wi-fi came with a fee of about $12. Parking also very expensive, but somewhat reasonable, for $1 an hour which is all in all $24 a day.

Great hotel! We enjoyed staying here a lot! Hopefully, we will come back again! :D
5/5 stars!

Rooms did not match elegance of lobby. rooms were average. could not get a served breakfast, it was all buffet. food cold by time got back to your table. Alcohol Beverages very over priced. Regency level lounge very small for size of hotel. Had a very reduced rate otherwise would not stay at this hotel. Location is superb & views were beyond description. Left a written message for manager & never heard from him. He must not be concerned about the comments of his customers

The Manchester Grand Hyatt is a perfect destination in downtown San Diego. From there you can visit all the important sights of SD. The service was great and the room was such a nice place. Especially with the big windows in nearly all directions. I would stay here again...the only negative thing is, that it is quiet far to the beaches.

Room was very spacious. Impressive views (ours was of the harbor and Coronado bridge).

Location - right on harbor, next to Seaport Village. Less than 5min walk to Gaslamp Quarter. Easy driving access to highways and Balboa Park/San Diego Zoo.

Friendly staff.

Only downside was parking fee - charged nightly and no discount for hotel guests.

Love this hotel. If you can get one of the corner rooms on the west side of the Seaport Tower. Great view of the Harbor and a nice view of the city, pool and other tower. Top of the Hyatt is a great place to watch the sunset while sipping on a martini and eating the wonderful hot crab dip.

We have stayed here several times and can't wait to go back!. Used priceline and have got a room for $75 to $100 a night. The pool area is awesome, during the summer they have movies poolside and a childrens play area, basketball courts, shuffel board and tons more. Seaport village is right behind the hotel and Gaslamp is within a few blocks!! The best experience we have found for a family!!
