Stayed at Hampton Inn for a conference down the street at the Grand Hyatt Manchester. Grand Hyatt was $250+, Hampton Inn $122. Trolly station is right behind the hotel (County Center/Little Italy stop), so this is EXTREMELY convenient for getting to the big downtown hotels, Convention Center, Gaslamp Quarter, and Petco park for Padres games using a $5 day pass....
