of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We had a great stay at the US grant. We asked for adjoining rooms beforehand and got exactly that. Two very comfortable rooms for us and our two kids. It was recently remodeled with a high end tasteful style. The breakfast is delicious with many healthy options and at night the restaurant converts into a live jazz bar... overall great experience.
Enjoyed our stay. But we were being charged for wifi until I required. Really! It's nickel and dime stuff and they should be embarrassed. The staff is great. I think at these prices, the breakfast should be included. It wasn't. They have work to do. It's a competitive market. (They also lost my wife's laundry)
"Grand old hotel"
The US Grant is very much in the style of a grand old hotel, with sunny rooms and elegant public areas but also small elevators and a long walk to your room if you're at the end. The service is impeccable. I was particularly impressed by how quickly the valet retrieved our car whenever we called for it; we never had to wait. The fitness area is small but surprisingly well equipped. The restaurant was only so-so and there are not any good restaurants within walking distance. The restaurants and stores near the hotel are pretty generic - primarily chains.
"A grand old hotel broughtup to date"
This is a classic old California hotel, with fully modernized furnishings and a very helpful staff. The rooms and the public areas are comfortable and spacious. Staff were uniformly helpful and courteous. Nice little gym in the basement. And the location, on the edge of San Diego's Gas Lamp District, is good for anyone who wants/needs to be downtown. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at the appointed time (3 pm check in time). The front desk clerk, without asking, gave us a $50 hotel voucher and promised to expedite the room. We had a light lunch at the Grill, and the room was ready before we were done. A very enjoyable stay.
Superb hospitality, fabulous deco and great, convenient location to restaurants, shopping and the waterfront. Unfortunately, the hotel lacks a pool! Inconveniently, we were advised to walk to a sister hotel a few blocks from the US Grant. Not practical, esp in winter. Also your welcome drink is for One person 😼so you're spouse/partner needs to purchase their own'' This beverage voucher has to be redeemed on the day of arrival- irritating if you check in late in the evening & shower and sleep is all you need.
