“Great hotel in a noisy location”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Hyatt hotels are overall fantastic, and this property is no exception. But if you are a light or early sleeper, this may not be the right location for you. Freight trains seem to come by every night around midnight. Trolleys, trains and noise from the street can be heard even at higher floors.

Stayed here with my wife on our wedding anniversary.. Amazing hotel with great views of Coronado and the Coronado Bridge.. Located right near all the downtown San Diego attractions and The Gas Lamp district.. San Diego Convention Center next door, Petco Park a short walk away and did I mention The Gas Lamp District a few steps away? Complete access to restaurants, museums and San Diego's nightlife.. I am looking for a reason to move here..

The hotel is in a great location, for sightseeing and just hanging out.

A few negatives though - the pool is a bit small for the size of the hotel; and the spa area only has one shower.

Dear PDXTravelingGirl,
Thank you for the nice review! We are thrilled to hear you loved the location of our hotel on the San Diego Bay. I did want to clarify that we do have two pools, one on the 4th floor pool deck and one adults only pool on the 3rd floor, just outside of Kin Spa. I hope you were able to take advantage of both during your stay.
Again, thank you for the nice comments and we hope to see you back soon.

Warmest Regards,
Kristin Spitz

beautyful lobby, excelent service, helpful staff. i liked my room very much, nice furnitures, especially the bed which was most comfortable. convenient access both to convention center and gaslamp quarter. comparing hotels nearby, this was the best value for the money. cannot understand why it is relatively under rated on tripadvisor. the only remark i have to make is i wish internet was free or at reasonable price.

First time in San Diego and this hotel was great. On the harbour front, near to the Fish Market restaurant, and within walking distance of the Gas Lamp district where there is a wide choice of restaurants and bars, as well as shops.

We were on the 30th floor with an awesome view of the harbour and with the baseball ground Petco park in the distance. The trolley (tram system) ran from just over the road which was convenient for getting to Sea World and Fashion Valley (not my choice of venues but I'm a good bag carrier).

The hotel room was spacious, big bed, very comfy, all clean, and the 40th floor 'Top of the Hyatt' was a good place to kick the night off, or retire to mid afternoon to escape the heat.

The restaurant in the hotel is nice, as are the bars, but I would recommend getting out to the local restaurants, as there are some great fish places to eat, and the steak at the Marble Room in the Gas Lamp was fantastic.

We will definitely return to San Diego and this hotel soon!

...and a quick word on San Diego, it is right up there with our favourite place New York, as the people are very friendly and we loved it!!!.

At our recent stay at the Manchester Hyatt we found the quality of service unsurpassed, starting with the concierge, specifically Philip and Mercedes, always doing their best to make our stay enjoyable. Cathy, and Benazon went out of their way, along with Ben our bellman to help us find a certain type of medicine for my wife and myself, even personally driving us there. Basel was also one of the most helpful managers we have met. We are frequent travelers to San Diego, and we never consider any other hotel than the Manchester Hyatt. The staff are more friendly and welcoming than anywhere we've ever been; we always feel like we're home when we arrive.

my daughters i-pod was stolen by a staff member. no interest from hotel, no investigation or contact on our return as promised. this place looks great but its a facade, anything goes wrong and you are on your own. beds are tiny, yet the sheets don't reach the bottom of the bed so your feet are on the bare matress?! walls paper thin, very expensive to dine, massive internet charge. the 'designer' shops mentioned in the foyer are a couple of dodgy places flogging garrish statues and floral patterned shirts. pool is very small, and very windy as its 4 floors up, if there are more than 50 people present its full and with a hotel this size thats not difficult. it was clean, thats about it.

Thank you for your candid comments here on TripAdvisor. We take any theft reporting very seriously at the hotel. If this incident has not been addressed already, I'd like to invite you to call our Rooms Director, Chad Eding at the hotel so we can further investigate this claim.
