Downtown San Diego has quite a number of smart hotels, and some that aren’t as smart as they think they are, but the majority of them suffer from that international anonymity that leaves you feeling just a little bit more dead inside. Well the US Grant isn’t exactly a boutique hotel rippling with eccentricities, after all it is in the same market as it’s neighbours, but it has does have a certain individuality that come from it history. It is clearly a hotel which when built, sometime in the first half of the 20th century, had a sense of luxury and quality; the tasteful restoration has tried to capture some of this.
Not everything about the hotel suited us, we found the only bar in the hotel a mixed blessing; it was relatively intimate, but in reality a little on the small side; some nights the live music was pleasant on other evenings it was annoying wall paper. The breakfast like wise had highs and lows, no one would recommend the Egg White Frittata and I wasn’t over impressed with the poached eggs on ciabatta which was an eggs Benedict type of affair with a rubbery poached egg and a poor hollandaise sauce. On the other hand fresh egg omelette was excellent and both the shrimp frittata and the smoked salmon breakfast were very good.
On the whole, if you’re going to stay downtown in San Diego in one of the big hotels this is one of the more interesting, not the most luxurious and certainly not among the most expensive but very nice and with its own certain sense of style.
