    Great Hotel Resort and Awesom Location

    This Hotel was in great Location to bay/harbor and restaurants and shopping... also a Hop Skp Jump from Airport... Room /Bathroom were very clean and decent size... Bed was not as comfortable as another Brand Name i usually stay in but decent... Great Bay view from my floor - Harbor Tower... Although on the pricey side for rooms and Food and Beverage, I as a single female traveler, i felt very safe staying here and walking around... Many restaurants and 'stuff' within walking distance... If you dont want to walk... there is bicycle 'taxis' which hang outside of hotel on curb... also keep in mind, this Hotel charges Destination fee per day and a Parking Fee

    Fabulous weekend!

    Our weekend at the Grand Hyatt was delightful in all respects. The hotel is well located - easy walk to Seaport Village, bay front walkway, and Gaslamp district, and staff -particularly Jazzy and Cynthia -were exceedingly helpful and friendly, We plan on returning in the near future.

    Close to the convention center

    Stayed 3 nights for a conference. It is close to the convention center and the harbor. Otherwise not much to recommend. The room was very tired. Couch cushions worn through, missing caulk in the bathroom. Loud heat. Also it is the furthest of the 3 waterfront hotels from the convention center. Would recommend the Marriott or Hilton Bayfront instead.

    Great Stay!

    Wonderful hotel with incredible amenities. Really accessible to the rest of downtown. This was the longest I have been in San Diego and the joy and ease of the Grand Hyatt only makes me want to come back as soon as I can.

    Simply a fantastic hotel!

    Because of its location, views, amenities, restaurants, service, and comfort, my wife called this the best hotel she’s ever stayed in! Even though I was there for a conference and my wife tagged along, we had the best time in San Diego thanks in part to being able to come home to this amazing hotel each night. We had a room with an amazing view. It was clean, the bed was super comfortable and the restaurants and shops right inside the hotel made the place perfect. Not to mention, the pool and hot tub AND being located on the historic waterfront. When we come back to San Diego, this is where we want to stay!
