Excellent location and view

I was at a conference in San Diego. The Manchester Grand Hyatt was a good hotel. However, the grandeur of the lobby and public areas was not entirely matched by the quality of the room in which I stayed: even though the linens were clean, there were old stains on the carpet and walls. I also thought that, for the price guests were paying, they should not have been charged additional $$$ for a small bottle of water available in the room. The service was excellent. I am particularly grateful for the assistance given to me by the receprionist and the people at the Concierge desk.

Manchester

This hotel is a good one, but not without the occasional problem. Location-wise, it can't be beat if you want to walk to plenty of restaurants, pubs or coffee-houses to wine and dine contacts. Everything is within 5-10 blocks of there. There is also a convenient trolley/streetcar right in front of the building. However, if you have to drive around a lot, stay further out of town where there isn't a traffic light on every street corner every 50 feet. Also, make sure the staff has left you more than one caffeinated coffee if you aren't staying alone--we had to call them repeatedly about that.

Good location for convention center

As expected for a Hyatt, it's a nice hotel. The rooms seem a little dated and not quite up to the level in other Hyatt Hotels I've stayed in, especially at the prices charged during this large convention.

Great location

The location was perfect! The rooms were okay, not what you'd expect for the price (especially the price quote from their website!) There is a new tower and would recommend asking to be in new tower (Manchester). The tower we were in was outdated!! Walls were thin and very noisy, could hear everything out in hall and above and below us (ex. people taking showers, opening curtains, flushing toilets). Saw several other hotels in the same area around the same price and wished we would have chosen another one. The pool area was nice. The best part of staying at this hotel was the location so close to everything!

San Diego Trip

The hotel was very nice. Pleasant and prompt staff. Great bar and pool area. Awesome views of the bay. Large rooms. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because we had a room with a connecting door to another room and sometimes it felt like the people next door were having a conversation in our room.

Rent a car and drive up the coast. You really just need a day and you get to see some pretty cool beach spots. On one beach, we were literally 10 feet away from seals.

Great location.

Walking distance to Seaport Village, the Gaslamp district, and the USS Midway. Easy access to catch the trolly to go to Old town or just sightseeing on the trolly. As usual....items purchased at the hotel are costly, but a Ralph's grocery store is in walking distance so you can purchase water bottles and snacks. Would definately stay there again. A plus...the view from my room was great!

Good quality

This is a good quality luxury hotel, with elegant public spaces and comfortable rooms. Our room had a lovely view of the San Diego Bay. Oddly, the room lacked a comfortable easy chair, with only two desk chairs.
