The US Grant -- a Luxury Collection Hotel

The US Grant -- a Luxury Collection Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Built by Ulysses S. Grant's son in 1910, the 270-room U.S. Grant Hotel is one of the most celebrated and respected hotels within San Diego, known for its American luxury with a traditional European twist. Rooms are bright and classically elegant, with crown molding, crisp white linens, and modern amenities like flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms have large walk-in showers and deep bowl sinks. Although the hotel's overall elegance and luxe vibe are charming and captivating, it lacks a pool (although guests can use the Westin's across the street), and the fees for parking and Wi-Fi can add up.
Palomar San Diego

Palomar San Diego Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Hotel Palomar (formerly the Se San Diego) is one of San Diego's most luxurious hotels, and also one of its coolest, with a trendy rooftop bar, zen design, and a location just north of the lively Gaslamp Quarter, next to a major concert venue. But the nightlife can be noisy and most rooms have king beds, so leave the kids at home.
The Westgate Hotel

The Westgate Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 223-room Westgate Hotel offers plenty old-world European luxury -- common spaces feature high ceilings with crown molding and large chandeliers, wide, carpeted staircases, and elegant curtains draping the floor-to-ceiling windows. Rooms are extremely spacious and clean, and offer either harbor or city views, though the decor is classic, perhaps to a fault; this hotel may not be the best pick for visitors with modern tastes. Although the hotel is undeniably luxurious, with a modern fitness center, spa, old-school barber shop, and on-site flower boutique, it lacks a pool. Not to mention, the "facility fee" can be a major pain on top of the pricey parking fees.
W San Diego Hotel

W San Diego Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 258-room W San Diego Hotel is a youthful, upscale property in Downtown San Diego, within walking distance to Broadway Pier and the Gaslamp Quarter. Modern common areas include a stylish lobby lounge, a vibrant restaurant, and a posh, happening rooftop bar. Blue-and-white rooms have chic furnishings, minibars, and cool window seats, but some are on the small side for the price. The hotel offers a (very small) heated rooftop pool surrounded by lounge chairs and a fitness center, but the fees are high for Wi-Fi and parking. The just as scene-y Andaz has bigger standard rooms and a cooler location in the Gaslamp Quarter, so it may be worth comparing rates.
The Sofia Hotel Downtown

The Sofia Hotel Downtown Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 211-room Sofia Hotel in Downtown San Diego features small, but stylish rooms, with mini-fridges, microwaves, and tiny flat-screen TVs. Use of the fitness center, yoga and pilates studio, Wi-Fi, business center, and even loaner bicycles is included in the $8 daily fee, and the American brasserie gets solid reviews. It's more charming than the often similarly priced Holiday Inn, and the location is more convenient -- but parking will cost you.
Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown

Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This cylindrical, 220-room hotel became a Sheraton in May 2012 and received several upgrades as a result. A full-scale renovation of the property is planned to begin in fall 2012 and be completed by early 2013. This will include a larger lobby area and restaurant, as well as new hallways. Most amenities in the rooms themselves (mattresses, linens, etc) were changed as part of the transition as well. A few blocks north of the San Diego Concourse, the hotel is located right before a freeway on-ramp, conveniently close to the airport and major attractions. It still has some great freebies — free Wi-Fi, free morning newspaper, and a free shuttle to take you to the airport, for example. But the small pool and fitness center and out-of-the-way location near the highway are downsides. tag:revisit 7/1/2013
Porto Vista Hotel

Porto Vista Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 193-room Porto Vista Hotel offers a mid-range option with a ‘60s motel vibe, a restaurant with harbor views, and a cool rooftop bar with plenty of lounge space. But despite the veneer of trendy decor in some areas, this is a no-frills property: Rooms have motel-style, exterior entrances, and the hotel's location in Little Italy, right off the freeway, isn't ideal for exploring Downtown San Diego on foot. A free (limited) breakfast is included in some room rates, and the hotel has a free airport shuttle. Wi-Fi throughout is free. Those who don't mind giving up an on-site restaurant and gym may prefer the nearby, charming Hotel Vyvant for around the same price.
