Was in a perfect location for play, nice old style hotel. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Went to San Diego for the weekend and stayed at the US Grant. Upon arrival we were greeted by Paul who gave us a quick tour of the main floor and brought us to the hotel check-in area. Everyone bent over backwards to welcome us....very impressive!!!!! The next day was different. Seems that we arrived on the same day the hotel was hosting some of their […] big wigs so everyone was putting on quite a performance. The next day everyone was much more relaxed. The service was still good but nothing like it was on our arrival. The hallway carpets on our floor looked awful! I know it's a historic building but they need to address those carpets. The curtains in our room had some stains....I don't think I want to know.....? The sink in our bathroom had some nasty gunk stuff around the faucet. I honestly don't know if I would go back.

"Beautiful Historic Hotel right in the heart of SD!"
Staff was knowledgeable, friendly, the hotel itself is beautiful, I never waited more than just a few minutes for my car from the valet, I was treated with kindness, respect and not once did I feel un-welcomed. I was so impressed with the fact that your staff from valets to your wonderful bartender did not hesitate to stop and help me when I needed […] assistance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My family arrived at this hotel at night. It was not easy to find the parking lot. The room condition and room setvice was great. But this hotel does not have the swimming pool. For kids i do not think it is good place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NO A 5 START HOTEL !!!"
Very old pipes with poor water pressure took 10 minutes to take a shower...No coffee in the room, hiding fees everywhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The go-to classic for downtown San Diego"
Historic and elegant hotel is in great shape for it's age. Rooms were comfortable and everybody working there was great. The restaurant bar downstairs had live music until 11pm on Saturday and we had a great time. We live locally (Rancho Santa Fe) and this was perfect for a night at the Symphony downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel conveniently located."
This hotel is amazingly beautiful and conveniently located. With a superior staff our stay was unforgettable.Genuine Expedia guest review
not crazy about paying $42 for parking,staff was great,great historic place,good fitness center.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was fine but not up to standards of a 5star hotel. It needs a lot of work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would definitely return here for my next trip!"
Amazing staff that attended to every need with professional attention and positive attitudes. The room is huge and very well appointed. The Grill downstairs had great drinks, less than stellar food. Walking distance to lots of great dining and entertainment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything"
We enjoyed our 4-night stay very much. The hotel service is outstanding with help in getting transportation, dining reservations, entertainment tickets, etc. public transportation is very accessible from hotel for both buss and trolley (light rail). In downtown close to Horton Shopping Mall, Historic Gas Lamp District, Little Italy, museums along the […] water front - about 8 blocks away. Had a great stay and Hotel has a lot of history linked to it as well as a very nice art gallery. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel overall - classic luxury. Real pity about no safes in room to lock up valuables - strange omission I thought.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our new favorite in downtown San Diego"
We travel to San diego often and this hotel is By far the best value for a 5 star. Excellent location. Fast wifi. Professional staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Too bad they charge so much for overnight parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and the hotel staff was outstanding"
We stayed at this hotel for 14 days straight and every day was pleasant. The hotel staff always offered us complimentary bottles of water and they would also ask us how our stay was going and if there was anything else that they could do for us. We received great tips from all of the concierges on the best way to get around town and where to go. The […] US Grant is where we will stay when we come back to San Diego.

"Nice getaway in downtown San Diego"
Sometimes, you just don't want to sleep in your old bedroom with your girlfriend at your mom's house. This was a nice one night stay in downtown. Very close to the gas lamp district and night clubs/restaurants. We, however, ate at the restaurant inside the hotel and were quite pleased with the atmosphere and service. It's a lovely, historic hotel that's […] been nicely upgraded. Room was great.... everything made for a nice, romantic weekend. Breakfast in the hotel was fantastic. Nice service the whole time. A minor note, but the valet service was fast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"What a Treat!"
We booked a Landmark suite because the description said two televisions were included in these rooms. My DH is an early riser, and I am not, so we appreciate two rooms, so he can get up and watch tv or whatever, as I am catching up on must needed beauty sleep! We valet-ed the car, walked into the gorgeous lobby to check in at 2:pm. We were greeted by […] Paolo, such a friendly front desk guy, who gave us room 802. When we went to the room, we were kind of surprised by the size of the room...it was VERY small, but more important to us, it only had one television. I called the front desk and was greeted by Cynthia, called me right back and explained that we were given the only Landmark Suite that had one tv! She stated that we would be moved to another room, yet none were ready yet. She would store our luggage, until our room was cleaned and then would call us. At 4:pm, Cynthia called and told us our room was ready. We walked back to the hotel, tore our eyes away from the chandeliers long enough to get the room keys and soon were on our way to what the front desk called, "The Best Landmark Suite in the Hotel." (Room 1002) Well, they weren't kidding! This room was about double the size of the first room, had two tv sets, a city view (parking lot, airplanes landing, city lights)! We loved it! Great turndown service in the room, a fully loaded bar and a nice bottle of wine in room available for purchase. My DH and I went to the bar and had a cocktail before retiring. Slept Great!

"I little disappointed....no, more then a little..."
We have always wanted to try the US Grant but somehow usually end up elsewhere. We are frequent visitors to San Diego. We got what was billed as a Superior room. It was very small with an end table on only one side of the bed. I had to set my glasses, etc. on the floor. We had a beautiful view of the air conditioning vent and a section of the roof (room […] 341). Very disappointing.The hotel had the opportunity to pick up some return business, but now I'll go back to the hotels by the water. I do give the valet staff high marks, very courteous and quick.

"Worked out great due to the hotel manager."
When I arrived, I learned that Expedia had not made the room reservation for which my credit card statement verified that I'd been charged in advance. I had to go online and show the hotel manager that I had been billed by Expedia for the stay despite the failure of Expedia to make the reservation on my behalf. The manager found me a room in the hotel, […] and after a long drive in heavy, holiday traffic I was greatly relieved. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Treated Like Royalty"
We were blown away at the treatment we had from the second we pulled up until the second we drove away. It almost felt like we were royalty. The lady who handled our reservation came around the desk to hand us our keys and show us the way to the elevator. Another gentlemen who worked there ran to the elevator to hold the door open for us. A gentlemen […] that worked at the restaurant bar was so nice. One of the valet gentlemen ran to our car to beat us there and open all our doors and put our luggage in the trunk. Every employee there was so friendly. I could go on for a while at what a great experience it was. We will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our local get away!!!"
My wife and I were looking for a wonderful place to spend a memorable place to spend our 5th wedding anniversary. I use to work as a chef in a local San Diego Casino, and one if the chefs I use to work with VESA Lepalla use to be the Executive Chef for the Grant a while back. I told him in a conversation one time while speaking about the Grant thT one […] day I would like to stay there. Well, I got the chance to and loved it! The only thing I didn't like was the fact that I paid the amount I did for the room, and then had to pay $39 for parking? Parking should have been included in the price of the room!

The hotel was beautiful and in a very convenient location. Close to shopping and great restaurants. The room was very comfortable and the staff was excellent.

"No longer a 5 star hotel: BEWARE"
It's best to remember what once was for the Grant hotel...instead of what it has become. This is in *NO WAY* a 5 star hotel. I've stayed at hotels in Haiti and at least their hotel shower drains drain and you don't have to feel the water splashing about your feet while you bathe. Moreover, the carpets in the hallways are stained and their are heavy […] scratches and gouges in the wall paper along the corridors.While the entrance *is* fantastic, the rest of the hotel (or at least, the 7th floor where I stayed) needs to be carefully looked at. This place is resting on it's laurels and it is quite disrespectful of the 18th President to present itself as some grand hotel, when it hasn't been kept up. I chatted up a maintenance worker there at the Grant and he told me that the pipes are a constant problem. I suggest that they replace them, after getting 100+ years of life out of them! The area outside is OK, but if you venture a couple blocks down, then you run into a high-crime area. Oh, and if you want to park your car there at the hotel, there is only VALET service. You will be missing a couple 7th Presidents from your pocket. Yeppers: you will be paying double Jacksons for valet parking...per day. Hope you enjoy your stay--a lot! I realize that the service biz is a tough one and that there are a lot of demands, but being honest and truthful about what you offer is universal to every business. The owners of the US Grant need to be made aware of this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleased with what was given"
My thought process of choosing US Grant was based off from location, quality and reviews from outside sources. The pictures that we're given on the site did it's job, gave the illusion of a spacious room when it really wasn't. Maybe it was my fault that I didn't the full research on the blueprint of a superior room. Overall, my stay there was quite […] pleasant with the staff and the environment. Did not know there was a pricey parking fee per night, which was not cool. I figured the high standards and pricing of the hotel something like that would already be included. I would suggest people to go here if there were going to stay in the downtown area for the night life but if they were to visit the city and the outskirts to go somewhere else.

"Beautiful Historic Hotel"
We loved absolutely everything about this hotel! The rooms were large and well furnished, with modern fixtures and luxe touches throughout. The hotel staff, all of them, super polite, and gave quiet, unobtrusive service. Truly a hotel reminiscent of a bygone era. We did not use the pool at the neighboring property, but it was nice to know that it was […] made available to guests from this hotel. Had breakfast at the Grant Grill, delicious!

The US Grant was a convenient, luxurious hotel. The room size was decent, bathroom size was decent. You can hear everything that happens in the hallway and doors slamming was a common occurrence. Staff was very friendly and the hotel overall was very nice. I did not like paying $39 per day for valet service...you can't park yourself. You are 5 minutes […] of walking distance from great restaurants and the mall. Overall the experience was good and I would recommend to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff."
The hotel was very beautiful and clean . The staff couldn't be more kind and friendly. Did not like paying $39.00 per night parking. It was more to park the car than it was to rent it! The downtown area is extremely trashy and homeless people are everywhere. Not th hotel's fault. It was so noisy outside that it was hard to sleep. I would avoid staying […] downtown from now on.

Checked-in late. Good speedy and great room service. Next morning, breakfast was waiting for me, and the coffee was spectacular!! Move over Starbucks. The bar downstairs was also good. No complaints. I plan on staying there anytime I'm in San Diego.Genuine Expedia guest review
"High class hotel in great location"
Very big and clean rooms, great service all around. The hotel (built in 1910) is one of the oldest buildings in town but was recently renovated, giving it a modern yet traditional feel. Parking is expensive ($39 a night including valet service) but there are cheaper options in walking distance (ca. $15 per day). Wireless is only free if you join their […] rewards program (no cost for joining). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Elegant and convenient to dining, music and harbor"

"A stylish grand dame"
It's a lovely hotel, elegant and excellent location, you get what you pay for. The staff are all engaging and very helpful from the concierge to the housekeeping staff, all excellent. Rather sad old bed, definitely needs to be replaced, a definite crater on the left side of the bed. The room decor was really intersting like a Parisian apartment, though […] It seemed odd to provide only one bedside table and lamp for a King bed in a suite. Lovely bathroom, robes, slippers and nice amenities and a spacious lounge area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
