US Grant Hotel

Top choice luxury hotel in San Diego

This 11-stories high 1910 hotel was built as the fancy-city counterpart to the Hotel del Coronado and has hosted everyone from Albert Einstein to Harry Truman. Today’s quietly flashy lobby combines chocolate-brown and ocean-blue accents, and rooms boast original artwork on the headboards. It’s owned by members of the Sycuan tribe of Native Americans. Parking costs $48.
