How it Ranks: The Grand Del Mar ranks #1 out of 664 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: About 20 miles north of central San Diego in Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, The Grand Del Mar offers coastal California visitors a hearty helping of luxury from the moment they enter the marble lobby. Guests rave about the incredibly spacious guest rooms, saying that the deep soaking tubs, Italian textiles and rich, Tuscan decor makes for a relaxing stay. And if that isn't enough, there's also a 21,000-square-foot spa, four swimming pools and a Tom Fazio-designed golf course. The Grand Del Mar also receives high marks for its cuisine; the hotel's two restaurants, Addison and Amaya, serve award-winning French and Mediterranean fare coupled with regional wines. Add to that consistently friendly customer service, and it's easy to see why guests frequently refer to their stays here as five-star experiences.
