US Grant Hotel

San Diego

No hotel in the region can compare to the Hotel del Coronado for history, but US Grant, built in 1910, comes close. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places for its past including celebrity guests, magnificent ballrooms, a one-time Turkish bath and a speakeasy. Visitors can take a tour with advance reservation by calling the concierge desk.
