Score from 171 reviews Very good
The Horton Grand is truly a grand old hotel - but some rooms are less grand than others. The hotel itself is beautiful - foyer, amazing staircases, beautiful bar area, grand piano (with amazing pianist the night we were there) and situated in the lovely gaslamp district - easy access to other parts of the city. Our room was quite small, not a lot of room to unpack bags and move around, lacking in the extras that a lot of hotels provide. Quaint but impractical. A balcony room might have been a real delight. If we'd been staying longer we probably would have looked for an upgrade.
Not enough room. While the hotel was certainly Grand the room didn't live up to that name. Hard to unpack bags and move around. No sense of being in such a hotel when in the room.
How close the hotel is to everything. We did not drive for four days, we walked every were.
Rentovation of the front lobby..
Love this hotel and it's history
The construction but realize it's temporary will be back
Historical charm Friendly staff Location
Construction was a bit distracting but only temporary inconvenience
breakfast was the only meal, some remodeling going on
Great potential. The staff tries hard to make things work.
I paid full price, but was not told that there were renovations going on that were inconvenient and noisy. Parking is expensive. The buffet breakfast was limited and over priced. There are better breakfasts offered for free at most Comfort Inns. First two bottles of water were free for a three night stay. Seriously?
The parking costs, small bathroom, noise from courtyard at night and staff was not very friendly.
Great staff, clean, comfortable room
Small bathroom Furnished like your grandmother's house VERY noisy when the club across the street empties out late at night -- lots of yelling in the street, racing cars, horns
Amazing patio, great bar with over 500 whiskies, the rooms were very confortable, and the staff really friendly
I could have used a swimming-pool
Second to non for there location in downtown
Didn't like that I had to pay for parking as a guest
Location - Traditional Hotel
During breakfast the lady owner came to our table and started to talk with my wife (English is not our native language but we speak it quite well - may with some accent). At some moment, when the owner did not understand exactly what my wife was saying, she said quite rudely "please speak English". We thought it was rather hurting.
The charm of the "old" building and decor. Location was great in day and early evening times. Easy to get around San Diego via transit. Bed was comfortable. Staff very pleasant.
Noise was terrible- even used earplugs, still could hear people talking a block away outside, not to mention thru the walls of the room.We were on the 3 rd. floor inside the courtyard. Sleep was 3 hrs. @ best. The bathroom floor needed to be cleaned. Lack of closet space (could hang 4 items only). In house "breakfast" was OK not worth $ 12.00 fee. You get same thing @ Residence Inn for free. Furniture was very old and wooden...not good for older people. Shower space needed a support bar for older folks. Constant round of weddings/conventions during the month of August. When making reservations, perhaps this should be mentioned as it increased an already unbearable noise level 24/7.
Loved the hotel overall. The court yard was an excellent place for my friends and family to gather in.
My wife and I are tall 6 foot plus and the shower heads are to low for taller people.
In the center of everything, but not loud or busy
The decor and location
Interesting architecture, history, location- we walked everywhere, comfortable bed, nice towels and shower, friendly staff
We had a room overlooking the street and it was a bit noisy with foot/bike traffic until 3 am or so.
The location of the hotel was perfect for getting to the ballgames, Seaport Village, and all the offerings of the Gas Lamp Quarter. We also liked the quaintness of the old place and the overall cleanliness and comfort level. Travis was helpful and the bellman/valet (can't remember his name) we first encountered was great
The Palace Bar staff was absolutely the worst staff I have encountered in a hospitality setting. Inattentive to the customers (or maybe just us), one bartender was more than inappropriately all over the server, and for a really beautiful bar, they made it an unpleasant experience. I was disappointed a the girl at the desk when I checked out. She was not very friendly and never once ask us how are stay was. Maybe she knew she would get an earful about the bar staff.
Location Room decor
price for breakfast
Great location, classic looks
Older building, so a little noisy in the morning
Hotel was within walking/trolley distance to everything we wanted or needed….it was our wedding anniversary and the hotel upgraded us to a suite…staff was very pleasant..hotel is charming and historic…our suite had microwave and small fridge-perfect! Anne and John Roper
Would have liked an in-room safe….otherwise, everything was great
Enjoyed the nice welcome by Travis and his night staff, clean and very inviting.
Centrally located Good WIFI for free
Breakfast, better go to the cafe 222 next door
Seating in the room is bad.
People, location and clean
TV fuzzy on all channels
We loved our room and our balcony view.
