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.

Good location and good size room.

Everything was fine. This is a solid hotel. Rooms are clean and adequate but could use a little updating. The staff was very nice and helpful. Also very friendly.

My stay at the Grand Hyatt

I thought the bathrooms were depressing. They really need updating. The towels were small and scratchy and the amenities were sad. There was not a bathrobe either which is kind of odd for a Hyatt hotel. I expected better amenities.

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.

Meets Expectations and Beyond

I have stayed at the Hyatt in Minneapolis, so I know quality comes with this hotel chain. The beds were very comfortable, but the pillows were hard. They really do 'nickel and dime' the customers, as there is a fee for every service. I recommend you go on the Hyatt website and apply for the 'gold card membership'. It is free, no strings attached, and you can print your membership as soon as you complete the application. Then, bring that with you at check-in, and they will apply it to your account, so the gym is free. Without the membership, the fee is $5.00 / day. Expect to pay at least $10.00/day internet should you want this service. I have heard they have free wifi in the lobby, but I did not haul my laptop down there to figure it out. I even had a small box delivered via UPS, and the hotel charged me $5.00 to pick it up! If you are going to the conference center, know it is a few LONG BLOCKS away. All of my female friends had blisters on their feet due to all of the walking in heels. You can take a cab for about $5.00 if you want to pay for it. The staff is amazing. Very kind. The pool is kind of small, but the pool area is very nice and comfortable. The lobby is huge and beautiful, and the restaurant in the lobby serves wonderful drinks. They have breakfast items a'la cart for sale, and they serve a limited menu at lunch and dinner that tastes good and the cost is reasonable. The concierge could use some work... I was told incorrect info a few times, and I felt like I was bothering them when I asked them questions. Be very specific about what you want from them! I would definately stay here again.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Sea World costs $65.00, and although I love marine life, it was a little too commercial for my taste. It also cost $25.00 each way by taxi to get there from the Hyatt. Best to go with kids unless you absolutely must see a killer whale in your lifetime and this is your only shot.

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.
