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...

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)

Robert B, Hotelier at The US Grant, responded to this review

As much as we enjoy picking out the good of your review, we do acknowledge what we could have improved, riccic. To have lost the Mrs. laundry is indeed a problem and we must look into this. Please contact us directly unless it was resolved already at usgrant@usgrant.net so we can make this right. We are very sorry for this...

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...

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...

Thank you for taking notice of our recent $13 million refresh, RDM888! We are proud our historic bones as a "classic California hotel" built in 1910 by the son of 18th U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant, but also understand the importance of continuous improvements to ensure we not only meet but exceed the expectations of today's travelers. We look forward...

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...

The most beautiful experience thanks to the staff, the location, the elegance... The Chief Concierge Mark S. Peak went out of his way to make us feel comfortable during our stay, as well as the whole staff.

I stayed at the US Grant in San Diego for a conference going on at the Convention Center. It's an historic property, but very well maintained. I had a corner room facing the park. My first night was on Saturday and I was exhausted due to an early flight and a 3-hour time difference. I had hoped to get to...

The last time we visited The US Grant, it was tired and disappointing. Completely the opposite experience this past weekend. Upon arrival, we were greeted by charming, friendly doormen who directed us to the front desk which was just past the newly renovated lobby. Stunning. Crystal chandeliers, plush furnishings...very opulent. At the desk, Paolo helped us check in. Attentive, courteous,...

The first level of this hotel is astonishing! An authentically elaborate feeling of elegance and the service is equally helpful. We also found the location nice as there are many nice restaurants and stores within a short walk. I stayed in room 306, which was by the elevator and heard it several times throughout the night, other than that a...
