Impeccable hotel.
We loved our stay at the Horton Grand. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is close to bars and restaurants and the train line was 2 blocks away which made getting around San Diego easy and inexpensive. We enjoyed the bar in the hotel too. If we return to San Diego, we will definitely stay here again.
