At 33 stories towering over San Diego Bay, Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego provides a sophisticated waterfront atmosphere for mixing business and pleasure.
Just steps from the retail and restaurants of Seaport Village and Gaslamp Quarter and overlooking San Diego Bay, Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego is truly in the middle of all the action. And it surely makes it presence known: each resort tower (there are two) stands 33 floors in the sky, beautiful sand-colored beacons that seem as if they are rising from the nearby water.
With four configurable ballrooms (among the largest in the city), adjoining waterfront terraces and 61 breakout rooms and spaces, the sight of businesspeople is a regular one at Manchester. But don’t be fooled; the resort has just as much playtime to offer its guests.
First, Manchester’s rooms aren’t intended to solely by a spot to rest your head after a day of meetings. The 1,628 rooms and suites are spacious and comfortable, and decked with modern, clean lines. Many of the rooms even have Pacific Ocean views that beg you to sit and admire for a while. Guests can even upgrade to a upscale Grand Club room, with additional living space and lounge access.
The Adult Pool (for ages 21-plus) on the third floor and the Family Pool on the fourth have breathtaking views of the surrounding city as well as the bay. There is even a telescope to get an even better peek. For a dose of luxe lounging, both pools offer private cabanas (complete with a fruit platter, water bottles and plenty of plush towels) so friends and families have an exclusive respite to recharge. Everyone from tots to teens (OK, and Mom and Dad too) can spend hours playing corn hole, ping pong or giant-sized Connect Four on the turfed area that neighbors the Family Pool.
Though dining at Manchester is slightly limited at the moment (with a few of the restaurants temporarily closed), Market | One, Pool Bar & Grill, The Landing and Sally’s Fish House & Bar are all open for business. Market | One is a one-stop shop for grab-and-go breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and Starbucks coffee; guests can order up frosty cocktails and casual dishes at Pool Bar & Grill; The Landing lobby bar shakes up classic cocktails; and Sally’s dishes up sustainable seafood and a lovely bayside patio.
Those looking to explore can take the ferry to Coronado Island, hop aboard the USS Midway Museum or enjoy Hyatt’s Destination Fee, which includes a one-hour ticket for a cruise around the harbor, daily one-hour bicycle rentals, water kayak or paddleboard rentals and more.
