Great hotel in the Gaslamp District

Posted Aug 20, 2014
The hotel was undergoing renovations during my stay, but the staff went out of their way to be of service. This is one of the old Grand Hotels of San Diego and is one I would return to again.

Great Location

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: The location and new renovation
Cons: The signage during redirecting traffic around the areas being renovated was small and easy to miss. It took some time to figure out where to go.
Location: The Gaslamp Quarter! With lots of history and night life.
The Horton Grand was a wonderful hotel with lots of history. They are going through a renovation right now, so we were able to get a good deal! The rooms, which were already redone, were comfortable and nicely decorated. The Palace Bar was also a nice place to end the evening. Besides the hotel, we were right in the middle of the Gaslamp, and had tons of restaurants and clubs near by. Great Stay!

This is a wonderful hotel in excellent location.

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Personality and location
Cons: Bartender (not owned by hotel) was lousy. No personality and very cold. Good news is that there are plenty of other places close to get a cocktail.
Location: Seaport Village and Gaslamp easy walk. Wonderful restaurants.
We were only there one night but will return. The location in the Gaslamp is excellent. Highly recommend.

Excellent

We had an excellent stay. The hotel is very quaint and has a unique style. It felt like we were in New Orleans with the beautiful courtyard and Victorian style.

Weekend in San Diego

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Our stay at The Horton was both positive and negative. Good points included location near the ball park and the convention center, cost, and character. The staff was also nice and helpful--especially the valets. On the flip side the rooms are extremely small and antiquated with few electrical outlets and a tiny space to hang clothes. The first night we had a room above the bar and street and the noise kept us awake until 2:00 A.M. The next day the staff was very understanding and changed our room to the alley side of the hotel. In summary, if you need a hotel in this location at a good price and you are only staying a few days, you could probably make The Horton work for you.
