Lonely Planet review

At the edge of the Gaslamp, rooms in this brick hotel from 1886 are individually decorated in Victoriana and have gas fireplaces. If you're facing the street you may get a wrought-iron balcony but also street noise from nearby theaters and clubs; rooms facing the inner courtyard are the quietest. Parking costs $25.

Our independent authors have visited Horton Grand Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in San Diego.
