The US Grant is a perfect place to stay for those taking a cruise. A quick $15 taxi ride (tip included) from San Diego Airport will take you to a beautiful hotel with excellent, helpful staff.
My wife and I loved our room which was spacious, clean and quiet. The daily complimentary water was a very nice touch! There is a small, well-equipped gym but the sea wall is within easy jogging distance for those so inclined.
All the attractions we wanted where within easy walking distance (e.g. Horton Plaza, the Gas Lamp Quarter , Petco Field, the USS Midway and the port). There is a pharmacy and a number of convenience stores close by as well. The Zoo, Balboa park etc., however, are further away requiring a taxi ride.
There are plenty of places to eat close by and the concierge recommended a rustic Italian restaurant called "Asti". It was excellent and definitely a must try! Downtown San Diego, in general, can be a bit "interesting" with the locals but my wife and I felt safe to walk about.
The port is a 5 minute taxi ride away but be advised that the taxi will drop you a little ways (~ 50 yards) from the port entrance because of the traffic volume. Not really a problem though unless you have many cases.
All in all, an excellent stay and a beautiful, friendly hotel. We will certainly stay here again on our next visit to San Diego.
