The bed was so comfortable and the employees were so welcoming! I loved the elevator with the vintage artifacts on display as you go up!

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel boasts short walking distances to many restaurants and convenient proximity to Petco Park for events. The staff, especially Concierge Todd, are excellent. The vintage decor and rich history add to its charm. However, the only drawback is the consistently low water pressure, which persists regardless of the time of day, which is somewhat perplexing.

The Horton Grand was a beautiful hotel for our stay in San Diego. The level of customer service was exceptional. Victor from the hotel was very helpful in providing local information, as we were visiting from Hawaii. The front desk staff went above and beyond. The Horton Grand is in the perfect location for local food, drinks, nightlife in the Gas Lamp District.

Staying here at Horton Grand Hotel was a wonderful experience! The staff was all excellent! Helpful with recommendations on things to see in the area. The restaurant Salt & Whiskey is a good place to eat, also very friendly staff. The hotel has history with a pretty cool story. They have done a wonderful job keeping the architecture original, without the musty smells that can go along with these types of buildings. This was the first thing I noticed, the nice smell! The room was very clean! Victor and Marjorie were extremely friendly and helpful, made our visit! Thank You

We have stayed at the big chain hotels in San Diego but they do not come close to the charm and friendliness of the Horton Grand. In the heart of the Gaslamp District, the hotel is close to everything yet tucked away on a quiet street. Easy walk to the convention center. From the moment we pulled up to the valet, Todd immediately greeted us like we were old friends. Marjorie was amazing at checking us in and seeing if a room was ready even though we arrived early. (It was!) We settled into a premium king suite and it was huge. Small kitchenette, nespresso, fireplace, two TVs. Wonderfully comfortable bed. It was so quiet and restful after long day of work meetings. Marjorie gave us a great recommendation for breakfast. We even got 2 free drinks at Salt and Whiskey bar. (Server Ruby was so sweet!). We will definitely stay here again!

This was my first time in San Diego and my job booked me at this hotel. The location was absolutely perfect!! Close to bars, restaurants, and the convention center. My room was cozy. I love the pillows and the fire place. I couldn’t quite land on a temperature I liked but between the fan and fireplace I was ok. The bar and restaurant onsite were nice and the people were amazing. Victor made sure I knew how to find the best shopping and welcomed me each time I came back to the hotel. If I’m ever back in San Diego I’ll stay here.

Historic hotel off the beaten path, plenty of charm and character, huge suite rooms. Victor and the rest of the valet & staff were great. Fireplace in the room was a nice touch. Beautiful building, and relatively quiet overall. Also in a good location.
