The US Grant is ridiculously beautiful! You almost feel like you are in San Francisco once you see the hotel. The first floor lobby area is spectacular and nicely decorated. The bar and restaurant is old school beautiful. The rooms are nice and comfortable. They are clean and fresh. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
The Grant is perfectly located in downtown. It's close to the Gaslamp, Petco Park and shopping.

Reporting live from San Diego, this is Ron burgundy. I spoke with the reviewer and thought this hotel was a blast. The reviewer went as a couple and thought very highly of the hotel. When you first enter the hotel, the hotel screams classy. The lobby has high Chandeliers, historic art work, and beautiful decor.

The rooms really remind the reviewers of the old Parisian hotels. As one can see, this is a fine selling point for newly found couples, especially if you want to impress a girlfriend!

The bedroom features a nice tv, dimmable lights, and a very spacious living room center. The bathroom was very spacious, his and her sinks, and very awesome shower.

If one wants a great hotel, please choose the us grant in San Diego! Stay classy San Diego!

Mr. Burgundy, what an honor for you to cover Charles L's recent stay. The only question left to ask is what can we do to make the reviewer's next stay a 5-star experience?? Until then, staying classy always and forever since 1910.

Kudos to Starwood for the really superb way they have restored and maintained this historic hotel, which was built in 1910. Many older hotels feel older, with smallish rooms and cramped public spaces. Not the Grant. It's been beautifully updated to meet the needs of the modern traveler while still respecting its storied history.

The appearance of the hotel reminds me a lot of the venerable St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, which was completed in 1913 (also managed by Starwood). The decorative touches are all elegant without being stuffy. The hotel provided pineapple lemonade in the lobby the day we arrived, and offered a mixed cocktails cart beginning around 4pm.

Our room was spacious and inviting, crowned by the Starwood touch--the Heavenly Bed. The room also had a safe, a small refrigerator, a coffee maker, and free bottled water during turndown service.

We look forward to returning to the welcoming service and elegance of the Grant.

We appreciate you taking notice of our genuine pride in preserving the historic charm of our hotel while also modernizing features and services for today's travelers.

Great location, Great service and Good food. Large comfortable beds. Gorgeously lit up at night. Only negative is the park accross the street which accents San Diegos Homeless problem. Not a safety issue just sad and unsightly.,

I stayed here with my mom for three nights. We were in town to see a show at SDSU. Our favorite thing about staying here was the Grant Grill, the hotel's restaurant. The service was fabulous and the food was very good. The entertainment was good too! The room felt like just the right size and the beds and pillows were comfortable. We enjoyed the nice bathroom with a great shower. The only downside of staying here would be the location and maid service. There is a mall across the street, but it's not very nice. The area didn't feel safe and I would not have gone out at night. The maids did a fine job, but our room was always made up so late in the day, around 5pm. Also, I found myself always bumping into the maid cart in the narrow hallway, which was a touch annoying. Late check out was a big plus. Staff was all wonderful.
