Overview

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 newly opened Salt & Whiskey which transports guests back in time with wood-paneled walls, elegant decor, a cozy atmosphere and live entertainment Thursday-Saturday evenings.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available and there's also a 24-hour on-site gift shop is perfect for late-night snackers and forgetful packers.

The staff at the hotel did not go above and beyond to assure we enjoyed our stay they were polite but non engaging. No extras here! We forgot toothpaste and were directed to the gift shop where we could BUY it. This would be ok but you can’t gauge people on stuff like parking (45$/night) and then not have something as simple as toiletries.

The staff was amazing. Flawless check in. I felt welcomed immediately upon walking in the door. Room service was prompt and courteous. Check out was flawless and I was even set up with a driver back to the airport at 4:30am, which meant more than words can express due to traveling alone. That to me was above and beyond and demonstrated that they truly cared about me, my stay, and my safety.
