... good, and struggled with the fact that pesos are indicated with a $ sign despite being worth about 8.3 cents (and the £1:p$18 exchange rate). I bet things would have been cheap though.
I often like going off the beaten track so I can only imagine I would have walked a 15km loop down along the Tijuana river over heavily crumbling pavements. I think it probably would have felt like San Diego in the sense that they're both clearly Latino, but odder in that ...
... messy, you can see why it comes with a bib. You can see why this area of Southern California is a Mecca for surfers. The clear crisp Pacific waters with waves crashing through every few seconds. One nearly swept me away must have been too much ...
... the bar scene from Top Gun was filmed and picture Tom Cruise singing You Lost that Loving Feeling in that exact spot! We walked around Old San Diego which is a State Historic Park and looked in the shops and toured La Casa de Estudillo and Seely Stable. In the early 1800's it was the social and political center of San Diego. The house was beautifully furnished and it was so neat to see ...
... problem there. Luckily we came across a pretty cool rock bar just a few mins walk from the beach and I think that may have been the best pint I have ever had.. The barman was really friendly and we chatted to him for a while. Apparently you don't find bars on beaches anywhere in California due to a problem with under age drinking. So now we know! He suggested sticking to Europe.. Anyway, good day out but long ...
... lovely couple of Californian tech-workers and enjoy a lively chat about Google, Yahoo and if it is ever going to be possible to retire in the US if you are in your mid 50s.
From Monterey we start the drive south, visiting rich, twee Carmel where nearly every shop has a picture of Clint Eastwood with his arm around the store owner. Our next stop is San Simeon, a base we have chosen so we can visit Hearst Castle, the folly of a megalomaniac media baron. It's not ...

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."
