Sweetest deal with great location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 6, 2009

Husband attended a biz conference while I went around San Diego with my daughter for a week. Fantastic view overlooking bay/pier plus an aircraft carrier. Check in/out was a breeze. Every call to room service or housekeeping was attended to immediately with a certain graciousness which was a far cry from my Westin St Francis, SF experience. Specialty/local botiques line the ground floor of the hotel. Very good restaurants are just a stone's throw away in the Seaport Village.

Every facility worked although it was too cold to swim so we only managed a 2 minute dip in the pool.

If you are easily bothered by train sounds then do not book this hotel. I personally find this aspect a bit quaint :)

Unique Quality: Great location near the trendy Gaslamp area and quiet Coronado community. Interiors were impressively finished with warm wood starting with the cavernous Front Desk area.

My daughter liked the room service 4 cheese pizza, mini burger and fries. She also liked the very ample bed and ultra soft pillows.

Directions: Near the Coronado bridge entrance

Formerly the Hyatt Regency San Diego!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 6, 2005

First I'll have to say that I haven't stayed at this hotel and most likely will never be able to. The price is just too high for my meager budget, an average price, $300.00 a night.

However for those who can afford it, the Hyatt offers all the luxury one would expect for the price, plus views, just short of a helicopter ride, of San Diego that are mesmerizing and rare!

You might not close your mind to the price without checking it out as I believe that this price can be reduced significantly by shopping around on the Internet. Many times, especially in the present economy, hotels such as this will offer reduced prices even during "the season." Last November (2010) one VT'er paid only $89.00 per night during the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Now let me tell you another way you can enjoy some of what the Hyatt has to offer without actually staying here.

Unique Quality: The Hyatt Regency San Diego changed it's name in 2003, when the second tower was built, to The Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. This addition expanded the size of the hotel's waterfront property to become the largest on the west coast and gained Hyatt the right to call itself Grand.

The original tower is a mere 33 stories and the newer addition, is 40 stories high, both overlook all of San Diego and as far north to La Jolla and south to Mexico.

The polished Italian marble in the huge--three stories high--lobby, which connects the two towers, is not really attractive to me. It reminds me of a grand train station, but the lobby is not what I recommend this place for.

Sally's Restaurant, Ann Maries Coffee Shop, Lael's, Redfields lounge and bistro and The Grand Lobby Bar are a start. These restaurants/lounges are open to the public and an inexpensive--comparatively speaking--way of experiencing the grandure of this hotel.

However, it is the Top of The Hyatt lounge on the 40th floor that should not be missed! Views, from the floor to ceiling windows, are breath-taking, mesmerizing and thrilling. The cold marble interior of the lobby is left behind at the door of this lounge. I felt as if I had walked into a private club from a different era. At the windows were comfortable arm chairs around dark, polished wooden tables and in the center an array of sofas for people to gather around the coffee table.

The lounge offers interesting appetizers, a martini menu and a full service bar. These items are priced higher than average, but well worth the price, if only for the ambiance and view.

The size of this hotel can be appreciated by looking at the photo of the two largest white towers at either end of the property.

Directions: Just north of Seaport Village's parking lot.
