Right in downtown

Posted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: The history and the rooms which were nicely appointed.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of.
Location: Restaurants, Balboa Park,
Our stay was great. The hotel was wonderful and the Concierge, Lee Ann was wonderful. She managed to get us a reservation on our anniversary at Bertrands at Mr. A's which was wonderful.

Got the royal treatment the moment we arrived from polite valet to house keeping. Everyone gave off an air of generosity, friendlessness, and professionalism. The decor was among the best I've encountered in a while. Absolutely breathtaking. One slight drawback was accidentally being told the wrong number of the suit we'd be staying in. But the issue was quickly rectified and we were comped free drinks and appetizers at their amazing in-house restaurant. On that note I have to mention their great live piano based musical entertainment at the bar. House keeping was especially thorough and visited a couple of times a day, possibly more. The room was fantastic. Soft mattresses, easy to figure out shower, and all lamps have built in dimmers. Another key point was the near sound proof walls. I never heard a peep from our neighbors regardless of the time of day. Room service was nice. A tad pricey but overall worth it. The food was always fresh and presented in an aesthetically pleasing manner. One negative that stands out was the view from the room. Usually not a deal breaker however our room faced another portion of the building in which we could clearly see inside the rooms opposite us. Not a big issue we kept the curtains drawn but the main kicker was consistently needing to close the blinds of the large bathroom window after coming back to the room for the day. Seemed unnecessary to keep those open considering the location of the suit. Otherwise our stay was great.

Everything was fine, the parking rate is a high price to pay, understanding that is San Diego and not NY. The restaurant's furniture need to be changed for a new one. Also the prices are higher compared to the same quality of the area.

Remodeled landmark hotel

Posted Jul 14, 2017
Cons: Our room did not have a place to sit comfortably. Also, as it was at the front of the hotel, somewhat noisy.
Location: On the edge of the gaslamp district, close by the park and Little Italy
Remodeled landmark hotel. Nicely updated. No pool. No spa. Concierges LeeAnn and Mark were top notch and both very helpful.

Great facility, very convenient to where my location was and would totally stay again. Worth noting the couple blocks around it are a little rough.

I stayed in this hotel for my wedding night. The staff was thoughtful and were nice enough to upgrade us to a nicer room and move our luggage to the new room while we were out. Thank you so much Cynthia

5 Star Hotel, But 4 Star Experience.....but....

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Pros: Location is perfect and the price totally reasonable.
Cons: Just check the air conditioning/vents in our room. No biggie.
Location: perfect location. Park across the street, Gas Lamp Quarter starts across the street, seaside shops within walk distance...about 8 blocks I think.
Air conditioning made lots of noise, so couldn't use. That was the only prob. I imagine just our room. EVERYTHING ELSE WAS OUTSTANDING! Great view, great location near. Little bit of a walk, but we hoofed it from the seaside to the hotel. Gaslamp Quarter right next to our location. Surprising amount of Indian restaurants. Hotel Lounge was comfortable. We got interesting drinks and deserts. Room was comfy with nice bathroom. Definitely recommended. If we didn't have the air conditioning prob, definitely 5 star.

Impeccable Elegance

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Upon arrival I knew I was not staying at your normal everyday hotel. The US Grant is a perfect example of what fine lodgings should be. I was visiting from out of town, a return home, and couldn't have picked a better place to have my girlfriend meet me. The staff were helpful, friendly and remarkably professional. I will definitely be returning.
