Helpful Staff in San Diego

I enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hyatt and it is conveniently located to the Convention Center. Since I was travelling on business, it would have been helpful to receive a receipt with room rate and taxes broken down, but since I paid for my trip through a third party, I was unable to get the proper documentation for travel reimbursement from the hotel. Noe at the front desk was extremely helpful.

Richard Walker's Pancake House is a few blocks from the hotel and has fabulous pancakes for about half the price of the hotel breakfast buffet.

Very Welcoming

Fantastic staff. The bellmen, front desk, Concierge, and housekeeping were all very hospitable, always with a smile. The staff at Redfield's Grill were especially friendly, easy to talk to after a long day.

Great Weekend Stay

My husband and I stayed here over the holiday Weekend. The hotel was lovely and the room had a wonderful view of the pool and ocean. The staff by the pool was slow we waited for a very long time for a drink and towels but you can't beat the location.

Very nice hotel. Overly expensive.

The lobby and building itself are beautiful, reminiscent of a Vegas hotel. The room is perfect for two people, very clean and well-appointed with a 46" flat panel Samsung LCD TV. We had a beautiful view of the bay and part of downtown (29th floor). Staff were courteous and attentive. Location is unbeatable and this is what you pay for - Seaport Village is at its doorstep, the convention center is a stone's throw away, and the Gaslamp district is about a 10 minute walk. Overall, great stay. Would stay again if the price was a little lower.

Go to The Broken Yolk Cafe in the Gaslamp district for breakfast. It's delicious and home of the 12 egg omelet! ... You may have to wait to be seated. But yes, it is *that* good!

Good location and experience

Lobby entrance is very swanky and the hotel has very nice furnishings and comforts, including pool with 2 spas and well equipped fitness center. Was surprised (and disappointed) that only breakfast option was coffee and bagel in the sports bar or a buffet ($17-24). Very comfortable room with great view of harbor, aircraft carrier and Seaport Village. Near Gaslamp District and convention center (several blocks away). Attended conference at hotel - every room was under 70 degrees and food was just ok. Nice view from roof-top bar but service and drinks were poor quality.
