“Great location, great service, nice hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Stayed here for the St Patrick's Day festival. The service was beyond what I would expect from this type of hotel. The team at US Grant were welcoming and extremely helpful from valet, front desk, dining room, and housekeeping. It feels like a very expensive classy hotel without the big price tag. The lobby and rooms have beautiful decor. Loved this place.

Outstanding in every aspect!!! Staff, service, and food were noteworthy. Close to Gaslamp district, Horton Plaza, and Old Town Trolley pickup!

Be sure to try Spa Breakfast with fresh fruit and egg white frittata!

The room was very nice, just like the pictures online. The carpet was very plush, odd thing to notice, but it stood out in luxury. The bed was the highlight, very, very comfortable. I also really liked the bath ameniites, different and upscale.

The check in was smooth and the man offered a great dinner recommendation and then called them for me to check what time they closed without being asked - great service.

Very grand lobby, wish I had more than one night to explore the town!

Greetings,

I am amazed that you noticed our carpet, it's actually hand woven with patterns relating to our Native American ownership, that of which we are very proud of. Thank you for your all around lovely review.

We hope next time you are able to eat in our very own restaurant, the Grant Grill, and spend more time exploring downtown San Diego!

Warm Regards,

Douglas R. Korn, General Manager

I just come back from San Diego where I spend three amazing says.
The property and the entire staff were amazing. From Steven at the Front Desk to the concierge and Pablo in the restaurant.
The room was pristine, the staff always smiling and engaged. Did I say that the Waffle brunch was "Yummy", loved the tangerinne coconut waffle, and the chocolate kit kat ones...
Enough said! what an experience.
Thank you for making this stay special.

Stayed here for one night to celebrate our anniversary. They upgraded our room to a higher floor in the corner, the "anniversary suite." They sent us complimentary chocolate truffles and an anniversary card. The valet service was very prompt. We requested a mini refrigerator be sent to our room and within minutes we received it. They even called our room just to confirm delivery. The customer service here was above and beyond. I've never experienced such amazing service!!! The location is perfect! One block over from the gaslamp quarter. The hotel is not only historic, it's GORGEOUS! We will stay here again. Had an amazing stay!

Grretings,

We are absoluetely overjoyed you enjoyed your anniversary celebration with us here at THE US GRANT. Our ambassadors and valet take great pride in our 102 year old hotel and the service we provide to its inhabitants--even if just for one night!

We cannot wait to see you again, do come back and visit our Sunday Waffle Brunch in our Grant Grill next time you are in San Diego.

Hotel is very clean and location can't be beat. Hundreds of restaurants within 8 blocks. Everyone on the staff was extremely nice with the exception of the restaurant staff but that's another story. I have stayed at over 20 spg properties in just last year and I can say for sure that this is by far the best experience I have had. In my past experiences with a touristy hotel, I have always found the staff to be meh (Westin St Francis I'm looking at you!) but this hotel has just been a great experience. Finally I can feel like I can relax because the staff will take care of everything and anything! Loved staying here and can't wait to be back.
Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are small but I think they have made an efficient use of the space.
Yes, it can get loud in certain rooms that overlook the 4th or Broadway but you're in a tourist spot, what did you expect?
Yes, it can be pricey but its worth it!!!

From the friendly helpful check-in, to the wonderful room (one of their slightly larger ones on a corner), to the comfortable bed, to the room's amenities etc... everything met or exceeded expectations. The bedding was definitely on pair with 'heavenly beds' and the decor was a fresh take on historic - feeling current but respectful to the hotel's history. The open areas are also great - as was the bar and the restaurant (see my separate review for the Grant Grill).

It should be noted that as a Starwood Gold member, they do have a designated floor that may have slightly better amenities or services - but I can't state for certain. Also, wifi (free to Gold) is $11.95/day. Parking is $35/day but offers in/out privileges (sadly this rate is similar to most downtown hotels). No resort fee as a downtown hotel.

The hotel is located at the north entrance to Horton Plaza and the north end of the Gaslamp district. It should be noted that when I visited in March the building across the street is being demolished - and even on a Sunday construction was going by 7:30 - 8 am. As an early riser this was not an issue, but if you like to sleep in I would check with the hotel as to when they expect the demo work to be done.

Greetings,

Thank you so very much for highlighting so many areas and aspects of our downtown hotel--from our Luxury Collection version of the heavenly beds in our guest rooms to the Grant Grill and even the parking option! Your attention to detail is very much appreciated.

Please come back for another visit--after April 2014, we will be excited to have the newly remodeled Horton Park across the street on Broadway for our guests to enjoy!

All the Best,
