Very formal, yet comfortable

Posted Feb 18, 2017
Pros: The high standards that this hotel maintains.
Cons: I am sure there is something but I cannot think of it.
Location: The location is central to what there is to do in downtown San Diego. There are two theaters directly across the street.
This is a very formal, five star hotel. That being said I was very comfortable in what I did. I was impressed by how well it is maintained and the quality of the staff. Years ago I stayed at the Plaza hotel in New York and the U.S. Grant reminded me of that experience. I would not recommend it for younger children as there is no pool. It would be perfect for couples and business travelers.

50 dollars a day to valet is insane this isn't manhattan. Lobby was very impressive as well as breakfast but rooms were tiny with no sitting areas

The Best Hotel in Downtown San Diego!

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Beautiful hotel with excellent staff. Extremely comfortable room. Over-the-top room service! The ONLY issue with it was the outside noise (specifically the metro/ train transit system) at night. It can keep you up!

Enjoyed my stay.

Posted Dec 19, 2016
Stayed at the hotel in early December, 2016 . It was quite. Staff was very courteous. Location is excellent. It is a historic hotel that takes you back in time, but has the amenities of 2016.

Not kid friendly. Too expensive, not worth the extra cost.

Thanksgiving at the Grant!!

Posted Nov 26, 2016
Cons: We paid for a legacy suite but our room did not have a bathtub.I was taken aback by that but nonetheless, everything else was great.
Location: Excellent locale. in the middle of everything in the gaslamp district. loved it.
My husband & I spent the Thanksgiving holiday at the Grant. Being pampered was really great. The room was immaculate. We booked a legacy suite. It is a renovated room and we were extremely pleased with all the amenities.
