I was a bit surprised to find a very small, yet clean and modern, room upon arrival given what was paid for a standard week day stay on business. You're not a far walk from the beach or Gaslamp district and the concierge is fairly helpful with directions. I didn't find anything about the hotel remarkable, one way or the other. The noise from the street can be bad if you're on a lower level, but otherwise a decent night's sleep.

Over thank you for the mostly positive review. Sorry we didnt get a chance to blow you away with our other services. I am glad the concierge met your expectations. Did you by chance try our Grant Grill restaurant? A pinnacle of culinary acheivement there! Jared, Director of Front Office

We enjoyed our stay at the US Grant in July. The hotel is beautiful. If you like old fashioned, grand type hotel, you will enjoy its architecture and the interior. It is not too stuffy and the room was beautifully decorated with original art as the headboard of the two full sized beds in our room. The bathroom was huge, with the biggest jacuzzi tub I'd ever been in!
We also enjoyed the Grant Grill Restaurant. The breakfast was tasty and the dinner there was excellent. For being a member of the hotel rewards club, we got credits to be used for breakfast each morning. The credit for two were generous enough for the three of us. The wait staff and the hostess were very friendly and remembered our name even though we stayed there for only two nights. At dinner, the restaurant staff accommodated for our 12 years old girl who enjoys many types of cuisine, but did not see anything on the menu that she would enjoy eating. I would recommend this hotel for anyone making a special trip to San Diego.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 11th floor, which needed a special key to use in the elevator. It was nice and quiet on that floor.

Sounds like you were in one of our exclusive Grand Deluxe rooms! There are only 5 of the total but the bathtubs are quite luxurious! It's amazing to think that one of the reasons this hotel was so renowned was that upon opening over 100 years ago, it boasted "bathrooms in most of the rooms" a luxury that didn't exist at the time! Glad to hear they continue to impress. Jared, Director of Front Office

I very much like your diction in this review and truth be told I am going to steal the phrase "bang on the corner" when talking about great locations! Thank you for the review and I am glad you enjoyed our corner rooms! We hope to welcome you back soon. Jared, Director of Front Office

If you want high end service and great food in a setting that feels exclusive (without feeling stuffy), check out US Grant. It's pricey, but you'll feel treated like a special guest. In addition to an attentive wait staff, both the chef and the restaurant manager stopped by thank us and ask how we enjoyed our meal.

Since the first time I visited the US Grant over 25 years ago for a fundraiser, we have made it our home when we visit San Diego. Nothing in Southern California can compare to the experience; it's combination of retro elegance and modern amenities make it a 5 star stay from the moment you arrive.
This trip we needed a larger space for a small get together and the Signature Suite was perfect. Two wonderful king beds, a perfect party area for cocktails for 12 guests and a beautiful bath with a really (almost silly) huge shower.
Every amenity was considered, every staff member greeted us with a warm smile, and every service was provided promptly, efficiently, and graciously. What more could a guest ask for!
I truly cannot think of a more wonderful place to stay while experiencing America's finest city!

Room Tip: Because this is a historic building the room size and view will vary. I'd advise consulting directly with the hotel to choose a room to suit your needs, but they are all beautiful!

This is one fo those reviews I almost have trouble responding to because its not only so positive but so well written! Thank you truly for your feedback. Reviews like this are almost better than any marketing we can come up with to share the guest experience here and we truly appreciate you taking the time to share it with the world! Glad the signature suite worked so well for you; it is such a versatile room! Jared, Director of Front Office
