The Horton Grand Hotel, San Diego
A historic charmer right in the heart of downtown!
I just love this Hotel. It’s Historic, it’s warm, inviting, and comfortable! I loved the setup in the bathroom, and my King bed was super comfy and awesome! I was on the 3rd floor with big windows overlooking the tall downtown buildings. I also liked the high ceilings, and the fireplace in my room. The bar was awesome with great variety. I was ther won a Saturday and there was a woman playing piano and singing beautifully. The bar is well stocked, and it was easy to order a great bourbon off the shelf along with a glass of wine for my sister and a top shelf vodka for her husband. Sat next to the huge fireplace and enjoyed a quiet coattail. Great location, and 5 minute Lyft ride to little Italy. Will absolutely be staying here again!! Oh and less than $100 on a Saturday night? Please! Take my money!!

Charming, a nice change from a traditional hotel! The hotel and rooms are appropriately decorated to match the hotels history and charm. Great service and loved the hotel bar and restaurant. The only complaint was late night revelers on the outsides streets making sleep at times difficult.

Hotel was charming and friendly staff. In a great location. Would definitely stay here again. Moved over to a resort hotel for 2nd half of trip and am regretting that decision, “resort” hotel is not nearly as nice!
