Staycation at The Manchester Grand Hyatt

Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel downtown San Diego

#hosted You'll definitely be #LivingGrandSD when you stay at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. 🏤 If you don't have Spring Break plans yet, this would be perfect for a staycation. 🧳 Or grab a Resort Pass for a daycation! @grandhyattsandiego 🤩 (scroll down for photo gallery)

Tip: Leave the car at home because the Trolley Stop on the Green Line is a quick 5 min walk across the street. There's so much to do here, you won’t even need one. 🚃


This hotel really did surpass my expectations. We had so much fun here that my boys already want to come back. Everything was great and there are so many options for playing, eating and doing nearby! The location is perfect because you can either stay at the hotel for your entire visit and not get bored, or take a walk to the many nearby attractions.


Most of the time we spent splashing in the pool, playing games on the rooftop and hit the gym; which is huge for a hotel gym and has a ton of equipment. There were only 3-4 others in there at the same time and it's so big we were far apart from everyone. I wish we could've timed our stay with the Rooftop Cinema season that just opened a few days after we left...but I guess we'll have to plan another stay.

(TIP: If you book a Rooftop Cinema you'll get a hotel discount for that same night.)

Here's all of your play options at the Manchester Grand Hyatt:

💦 Family Pool

💦 Hot Tub

🏓 Yard Games: Ping Pong, Large Connect Four, Corn Hole

🤩 Views for Days!

🏋🏻‍♂️ Gym is incredible

📽 Rooftop Movies!! Time your stay for a fun outdoor movie on the 4th floor rooftop.

🎟 Your reservation includes two coupons for a one hour rental (bikes, kayaks or paddle boards) 🚴🏻‍♂️ and a one hour harbor tour 🛥

🛍 Gift Shop (the selection & quality are really good here)


The on-site cafe at MarketOne was perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch to eat in the lobby (lots of seating tables were nearby and distanced from everyone) or sometimes we brought it back up to our room to enjoy as we looked out the windows at the city below (mesmerizing!). We had dinner one night at Sally's Fish House on the outside patio next to the waterfront. The food was rich and decadent; this is definitely perfect for a special occasion.

Here's all of your on-site dining options at the Manchester Grand Hyatt:

🍤 Sally's Fish House is on the waterfront with inside & outside patio seating (make a reservation) and views of Coronado Bridge. We had Thai coconut mussels, wild salmon and a blackberry mojito.

☕️🥪 MarketOne is the lobby cafe open from 6am-11pm daily serving up your Starbucks favorites, fruit, sandwiches & charcuterie boxes to-go, even order from the grill for hot breakfast & all day dining.

🍹 Pool Bar & Grill is the seasonal poolside service. Check back later this year before summer.

🍸 Top of the Hyatt is at the t-o-p of the 40th floor!! Imagine the views. They have cocktails, drinks and small plates only. No pool attire, the dress code is "sharp casual".


When we checked out, we left our bags with the bellhop and walked around Seaport Village for the rest of the day shopping, eating and gazing across the bay.

Here's everything else you can do at Seaport Village when you stay at the Manchester Grand Hyatt nearby:

🛍 Across the street is The Headquarters & Seaport Village for shopping, walking, eating & treating.

🎠 Ride the carousel at Seaport Village, cash only

🚃 Take a trolley or boat tour, buy tickets at Seaport Village. 🛥

⛴🤫 Take the secret ferry to Coronado (hint: it's next to Joe's Crab Shack, not the other one by the Midway) 😉

🤸🏻‍♀️ The New Children's Museum is a 10 min walk

💦 2 Trolley stops north takes you to the Waterfront Park

Plan out your stay and you'll realize that 2-3 nights would be perfect. You'll have all of this fun but still be able to rest, relax & enjoy your time here. 🏤

Save this post for your stay and share it with your staycation buddies! 👯‍♀️
