Under Construction

We waited 3.5 hours to check in. The room was dusty. There was construction going on above our room, we were moved to another room. That room was dusty and then the water was off for hours! I will say the staff was fantastic and tried to compensate for the sad shape of the hotel. I would return ONLY after being assured of the completion of the construction!

you pay the location and the lobby

Do not expect a wonderful room. You pay for the magnificence of the facility. Good dining options within the hotel. You don’t have to be a guest to attend them. Rooms are a little bit old but clean. I paid for a premium view; I received a “partial” premium view.

Good but could be better

great location. I loved that we were able to check in early with no hassle. odd thing happened in the evening , they woke us up saying there was noise complains . First off if next door can hear us then the walls are too thin and it's a cheap hotel after all.. Also there was a 50 dollar charge that I didn't bother to look into wish they would have said something or emailed me the reason..

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.

Great Location, but too many fees!

The hotel had a great location downtown. We got a rental car and had to pay $24 dollars a day to park it at the hotel. We ended up leaving it parked at the hotel because it was difficult to park anywhere downtown without also having to pay. Luckily we were within walking distance to downtown activities. The hotel also charged for internet, the fitness room and breakfast, which was a bit annoying since we payed $225/night. The up sides were that it had a grocery store close and a really nice t.v. Another downside, they used a flat sheet tucked in instead of a fitted sheet and it never reached the bottom of the bed so our feet were on the mattress pad all night.

Stuck on the 26 floor

Views of San Diego were spectacular and great location. However, only two for the six elevators were working and getting to and from the room was crowded and time consuming. The last day of our stay the elevators stopped working and we walked down 26 floors.
