How it Ranks: The Grand Del Mar ranks #1 out of 669 San Diego Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.
Our Take: What doesn't this European-style hotel offer? About 20 miles north of central San Diego, the Grand Del Mar drips luxury from its marble lobby to its four swimming pools to its Tom Fazio-designed golf course. Plus, it also hosts the award-winning (and delicious) Addison restaurant. Inside the rooms, guests will find deep soaking tubs, Italian textiles, and rich, Tuscany-inspired design. And if that isn't enough, there's also a 21,000-square-foot spa and über-friendly, accommodating service—overall a five-star experience.
