The US Grant
Travel Blogs from San Diego
Located at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego, CA. CNM commemorates the landing of Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542. This event marked the first time that a European expedition had set foot on what later became the West Coast of the U.S. Great views and lots of history here.
Spent my birthday with friends Wynnie, Zenny, Miyet and Raymond. Stayed 2 nights at The US Grant Hotel.

And so we flew 300 hours from Manila to the United States of America.
We landed into Los Angeles and were greeted by really long immigration and customs lines. But once through we entered the country that will be our home for the next 2 months and we don't have to do airports and planes for at least the next 4 weeks. Also the people we have met and dealt with so far have been amazingly friendly and the customer service ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The US Grant San Diego
If you long for a stay at a grand old hotel but worry that you will have to give up luxury and comfort, worry no more. The US Grant offers you the chance to capture the experience of a grand old hotel that has been enhanced with a modern touch that blends in very nicely with the original hotel.
Truly 5 Star experience
Stayed at the Grant Dec. 25 - 27 on the first leg of a vacation trip driving from San Diego to San Francisco and all points in between. The renovation to the hotel is fantastic and is a beautiful property. From the color selections to the paintings in the rooms and all the amenities are first class. In our trip we stayed at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, W Hotel in LA, Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, Mission Ranch in Carmel & the new St. Regis in San Francisco - The Grant was the best of them all.
One of the Nicest Hotels We have Stayed at!
Upon the time you drive up to the hotels entrance to the time you leave the hotel, you are treated like a king or queen. All, I mean all of the hotels staff are very friendly and attentive. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. We had room service and I had the best pork chop I have ever had. Nice jacuzzi bathtubs! I have stayed in a lot of nice hotels and this is without a doubt one of the nicest! Will definately return to the US Grant!
Stayed here 3 nights during Thanksgiving. We had 2 rooms, a jr suite and a deluxe room. The hotel has only been open a few months and has a few "kinks" to work out. We did not feel the jr suite was worth the extra money, there was no separate sitting area. They did show us other rooms but we did not feel like moving our things. The rooms were very nicely decorated and comfortable. The location is great, easy walk to restaurants and shopping. Very short drive to the zoo and other sights. The staff was excellent. We ate 1 breakfast & 1 dinner at the Grant Grill. The food was very good and the service was fine, but the kitchen was incredibly slow. It was so slow that on our second morning we decided to leave the hotel for breakfast and walked to a restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter and had a fine breakfast for a third of the cost. We enjoyed our stay at the US Grant and would stay there again.
I stayed at the recently re-opened US Grant this past month while at a convention in SD. The minute I arrived at the front door, there were was a friendly yet extremely respect bellman who accompanied me all the way through the check-in process until I arrived at my room.
The location is across the street from Horton Plaza and a couple of blocks from the Gaslamp Quarter. I was attending a meeting at the Convention Center which is about 8 blocks. I actually enjoyed the walk back and forth.
One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in a while. The service was perfect. There wasn't much they wouldn't do for you. The 52 million dollar renovation is beautiful. The beds were so comfortable and the food is great. 24 hour room service is a plus. The valet and bellmen were cute and friendly. It was a little pricey but you definitly get what you pay for. Clean, comfortable and great service.
I stayed at the US Grant in August of 2004. I can't believe this is the same place. My stay two years ago was fabulous. The front desk staff then was very accommodating and helpful..........not this time! The desk clerk that checked us in seemed to have been under the influence of something and the clerk that checked us out was no better. The hotel has been remodeled and looks nice, but the interior does not make up for the bad attitudes. I would rather stay at an older hotel with nice and helpful employees than a remodeled place with awful, mean, stoned employees.
The U.S. Grant finally re-opened in mid October 2006! Ignore all reviews before October 2006 because they are now totally irrelevant.
This GRAND HOTEL is beautiful! After the $60 million renovation that was put in to this hotel, it is "THE JEWEL OF SAN DIEGO."
