Stayed at this hotel with my husband from January 11-15, 2012. I was there for a work function, hubby was traveling with me.
Check in quick and easy. Got a smoking room like we requested. Spent one night in our room with two double beds and asked to moved to a room with a king bed. Staff moved our luggage for us while we out touring around town.
Rooms have great view over the water. Lots of windows, they even open, great TV, coffee maker with tea and coffee, mini bar and just a fair bathroom with a miniscule bathtub.
Hotel is set up with 2 towers. Elevators do floors 1-19 and 20-40 so you have to make sure you get in the right one in the correct tower. A little confusing but you get the hang of it.
Breakfast buffet is great but costs $30. Sports bar ok with very limited menu. Sallys has great food.
Location is fabulous. You can walk out the back door and be right on the boardwalk with a beautiful little village for shopping and eating right there. You can walk to the Gas Lamp District and the USS Midway is just down the street. Take the ferry over the Coronado Island if you have time. Fun to just sit and watch all of the action happening in the bay itself, fighter jets flying over head, lots of ships in the bay and even saw several dolphins.
Would I stay there if it wasn't a work event, probably not. I would look for a smaller boutique hotel that might be a little more intimate.
Overall biggest complaint was the lack of hot water. It didn't matter what time I tried to take a bath or shower it was always cold. I complained and they took the buffet breakfast off the bill for myself and my husband. Great on their part but would have preferred a hot shower at least once.

This is a very lovely facility that sits in the heart of beautiful San Diego. The views from all the rooms are spectacular and breathtaking. Centrally located to wonderful restaurants, shopping and sporting events. We stayed the weekend of January 28-29, 2012. This is actually our third visit to the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. We enjoy the amenities offered and excellent service from staff members. This place is spotless and the grounds are clean and well kept. I must admit that I am not thrilled about the price to pay to park your vehicle overnight at the facility. I congratulate the management of the Grand Hyatt for maintaining such a beautiful facility.

The Manchester has to be the best hotel in Southern California. I've stayed here many times, and several times with my Grandchildren, who love the pool, hot tubs, and the GREAT COOKIES in the Grand Club. Just a few minutes walk downtown, across the street from the trolley stop, and a few feet from Seaport Village. No need to rent a car. You'll love this place and it's awesome staff. Rick

An absolutely fantastic stay! This hotel is huge & situated right next to Seaport Village and right by the waterside. With it's distictictive roof design, the Twin Towers of the Grand Hyatt are landmarks of the San Diego skyline.

The decor may be a little older in style, and not as modern and hip as other hotels, but the hotel makes up for this with its superb levels of service and hospitality. With beautiful views of Coronado Island and the ocean, it is the perfect location for holiday makers and business travellers.

Situated 2 minutes walk from the convention centre, 7 minutes walk from the Gaslamp District and about 7 minutes walk to the USS Midway Museum. The rooms are a good size & very comfortable indeed. We stayed in one the Club Room/suites which have lots of extras thrown in. Breakfast at Lael's was something else! A real variety and catering for the health conscious and the not so health conscious. If breakfast is included in your package indulge in the Grand Breakfast buffet....no limit to how much you can eat! Breakfast filled us up for the whole day, certainly until evening hors d'oeuvres. Sally's Seafood restaurant is next to Lael's and has a great menu. From Sushi to the more traditional. Their Fish & Chips are famous, and definitely worth a try, as are their crab cakes! If you have be over-indulged, then take a leisurely stroll along the waterfront! For those fitness lovers, the hotel has a 24 hour gym and 2 swimming pools, and a great hot tub. Getting around is easy, there is a taxi rank outside, and if you hire a car there is a car park on sight, and depending on your package the parking may be included. If you want to hire a car, there is a Hertz Vehicle rental on site. Should you wish to be driven, the Concierge service will arrange that for you. Public transport is easy too. Their is a trolley (tram) stop on the otherside of the road, directly behind the Kansas City Grill, where the "Great Balls of Fire" Scene from "Top Gun" was filmed!

The hotel has everything you need.. well besides quick food service :). There are some places right outside the side doors that have great breakfasts, lunches, coffee etc.. there is even a Ben and Jerrys. The hotel is more of a "resort" type feel as it is HUGE. You can easily get lost in here. Our room wasn't very "luxurious" which was a bummer because we paid $238 for the room. The last time we paid that was at the W in downtown New York. There we had location AND luxury. Its a great hotel if you want easy access to get around and have a rental car. It was fun although I would stay here with my family.. not just my spouse.

Room Tip: I think Sea Port towers are older rooms??

Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights, because it is so big and so close to the convention centre we expected it to be crazy and busy. We were pleasantly surprised - it is big but gives you a very welcoming experience. Staff at reception desk and at the front door are great, very helpful and take the time to give you recommendations. The location of the hotel is great, we were able to walk most places. Restaurants were good, service all around good. Take the elevator to the top for a drink! We would stay again and would recommend it. We enjoyed our stay in San Diego.
