My wife and I chose the Horton Grand Hotel as our residing place for a week long 15th anniversary trip after researching and reading many, many reviews. The Horton proved to be a great choice for us. These are some of the things we loved about our stay at the Horton: 1. Historic charm super close to San Diego's Gaslamp...

We stayed in the Horton Grand in April 2017. The atmosphere and comfort were excellent. While the hotel is old and the floors creaked, It was a luxurious place to stay. The staff were excellent, the food was great, and the bar had live entertainment. We would definitely stay there again.

I had one night to stay in the Gaslamp district, and I was glad to find the Horton Grand Hotel in which to stay. This is an old hotel that has been beautifully updated and maintained. My regular room, not a suite, had period furniture and comfortable beds. The room was spotless and felt warm and homey. While the day...

I stayed at the Horton for 3 days for business in April, 2017. You can't get internet connection with your laptop, but will probably get it for your Apple iphone. The rooms are old and musky smelling with old furniture. Horton parking costs $42/day. Great location for Convention Center and cheaper than Hard Rock. The bathrooms had the old style...

The hotel is charming and the effort to upgrade is great . The lobby and halls and bar are really beautiful and looks like all new carpeting. The rooms are small and the bathroom very...

It has such a superb location. The hotel was originally built in the 1880s and was rebuilt 100 years later. It is a Victorian...

Wow what a great hotel! Room was lovely with a balcony looking down on the gaslamp quarter. The room was small by American standards but for us it was fine. Didn't use the fireplace as the weather was gorgeous. Highly recommend the restaurant for breakfast, especially the orange juice which was delicious San Diego is amazing, I will be back!

This was my second time staying at this hotel. Both times were very enjoyable. It is a fabulous location and the hotel was very clean and quaint. The historic significance was very interesting; I much prefer hotels with character to big box hotels. Although small, the room was clean and adequate, with a fireplace small balcony and view of the...

My husband and I stayed here for one night and this was our first time in San Diego. Excellent location - was an easy walk to tons of restaurants and a very quick walk over to the Petco where we saw a ballgame that night. Excellent customer service and the rooms were clean and spacious. Definitely would stay here again...
