    The US GRANT, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego

    1.05 miles away

    San Diego, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2754 reviewsTripAdvisor (2754)

    The son of Ulysses S. Grant (the 18th president of the United States) opened this luxury downtown hotel in 1910. Today, THE US GRANT, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego gives guests a taste of Old World glamour coupled with modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, minifridges and marble bathrooms. The hotel also houses a fitness center and The Grant Grill, which is critically acclaimed and known for its fresh Californian cuisine. However, this Luxury Collection property probably isn't the ideal hotel for sun-seekers, since it's pretty far from San Diego's most popular beaches. On the other hand, it's quite close to many of the city's top attractions, and if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member looking to redeem or accrue reward points, this could be the place for you.

    The Westgate Hotel

    1.07 miles away

    San Diego, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1087 reviewsTripAdvisor (1087)
    Free WiFi

    The Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego has all the fixings of a royal mansion: antique furnishings, Persian carpets, gold fixtures — the works. Modeled after the Palace of Versailles in France, this 223-room boutique hotel offers guests an experience unlike that offered at the city's more contemporary hotels. Many guests found the Old World interiors of the hotel to be simply beautiful but don't let the decor fool you, the place comes outfitted with necessary modern amenities. All accommodations at the Westgate Hotel feature 49-inch LCD televisions, Internet access and step-out balcony. The property also features a large rooftop pool, as well as the acclaimed Westgate Room restaurant. Previous diners are quick to praise the fine Westgate Room's dishes, though some say the atmosphere felt a little stuffy (not to mention expensive).

    Kimpton Hotel Palomar San Diego

    1 miles away

    San Diego, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1440 reviewsTripAdvisor (1440)

    Like most Kimpton brand properties, the Hotel Palomar San Diego offers guests a stylish retreat in a convenient location. Situated in downtown San Diego, the Hotel Palomar is described by recent visitors as classy and cool. Accommodations here feature Italian Frette linens and a muted yet elegant color palette. Rooms also include high-speed internet access (which Kimpton Karma members can use for free), ETRO bath products and plasma TVs. When they're not out enjoying the bustling nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter, Hotel Palomar visitors can take advantage of the hotel's on-site spa or relax by the outdoor pool. And though numerous eateries sit within walking distance of the hotel, previous guests strongly recommend savoring the craft cocktails and farm-to-table fare served at the Saltbox restaurant.

    Andaz San Diego

    1.14 miles away

    San Diego, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1803 reviewsTripAdvisor (1803)
    Free WiFi

    This Gaslamp Quarter hotel gets praise for its trendy ambiance – guest rooms and common areas feature stylized furnishings and contemporary artwork, and the general atmosphere of the hotel says "swanky." With that said, some recent travelers say the Andaz San Diego is more about partying than about relaxing. Guests warn against a weekend stay – Thursday through Saturday evenings, the Andaz's lounge, the Rooftop by STK, is swallowed by loud music and mingling social butterflies, and the neighborhood is fairly noisy. But during the rest of the week, travelers say a stay here isn't half bad. The comfortable guest rooms contain complimentary snacks and cable TV (plus earplugs for those sensitive to noise), and the on-site pool earns high praise. What's more, because of the hotel's Hyatt ties, rewards program members can earn or use points while bedding down at this Andaz property.

    The Keating Hotel

    1.17 miles away

    San Diego, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 855 reviewsTripAdvisor (855)
    Free WiFi

    Most guests praise The Keating for its trendy atmosphere and its prime location in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Visitors are also fond of the guest room decor, which showcases red and blue hues with exposed brick walls (in some suites) and contemporary furnishings. Some of The Keating's more unique amenities include LaVazza espresso machines, Egyptian cotton sheets, mood lighting and walk-in rain showers. The hotel also offers a number of tailored stay packages, such as the romantic Amore Mio package, or the spa-tastic Dolce Vita (think: bottle of champagne before or after treatments). However, visitors say that the hotel falls short in a few key ways: Some report an icy reception from hotel employees, and many complain of street noise disturbing a peaceful night's sleep.
