Rooms & Rates
Nearly a century after opening, two Victorian-era hotels merged to create the Horton Grand Hotel in the mid-1980s. Saved from demolition then carefully taken apart, transported and reconstructed side by side, the hotel now sits in San Diego's liveliest neighborhood, steps to the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum and multitude of lounges, restaurants, boutiques and attractions.
"This unique Gaslamp Quarter property is a historical bonanza," writes Frommer's. The two elegantly restored buildings -- now connected via a light-filled atrium and New-Orleans style courtyard -- feature handcrafted antiques, elegant period decor and a 200-year-old hand-carved oak grand staircase. Marble fireplaces and wrought-iron balconies characterize many of the charming guest rooms -- each with unique decor -- at the hotel, complemented by modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi.
Off the lobby, grab a drink or a bite at the Palace Bar which transports guests back in time with wood-paneled walls, elegant decor, a cozy atmosphere and live entertainment Thursday-Saturday evenings. Ida Bailey's Restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there's also a 24-hour on-site gift shop is perfect for late-night snackers and forgetful packers.
