Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego is a high-rise hotel complex in San Diego composed of two towers. The towers are the third and seventh tallest buildings in the city. Developed Doug Manchester and owned by Host Hotels & Resorts,[6][7] the taller tower is the tallest building on the waterfront on the West Coast, and with 1,628 rooms, it is Southern California's largest hotel.[8][9] Because of its proximity to the waterfront, as well as its amenities, the Manchester Grand Hyatt is referred to as a spa and resort.[10]


The Manchester Grand Hyatt consists of two towers, the 40-story Harbor Tower built in 1992 and the 33-story Seaport Tower which was added in 2003.[11] Starting in 2012, all of the guest rooms and suites had a complete renovation when the property was transferred to new ownership.[12] A four-story building with a rooftop pool connects the towers to each other. The hotel's 1,628 guest rooms each have partial water or city views, and many offer views of the Pacific Ocean. All rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access, and iPod docking stations.[9]

The hotel has three bars: the Top of the Hyatt, Redfield's Sports Bar, and the Grand Lobby Bar.[13] The third floor holds Iconic, A Marilyn Monroe Spa & Salon with its private pool and the fourth floor holds the general swimming pool, whirlpools, and sun decks for all guests.

Top of the Hyatt[edit]

The 40th and top floor of the Manchester Grand Hyatt is known as the "Top of the Hyatt", a bar with views of San Diego, Coronado Island, and Mexico.[14] The bar was awarded the title of "Best Upscale Bar" by SignOnSanDiego."[15][16]

Iconic, A Marilyn Monroe Spa and Salon[edit]

In November, 2014 - the 5,000 square foot spa underwent a full renovation serving as a refresh to the spa's 10 treatment rooms, steam room, sauna, Glamour room and relaxation spaces. The 3rd floor pool deck is an adult-only pool (ages 21 above) located off the spa's west wing on the third floor of Harbor Tower. The rooftop pool includes bottle service, cabana rentals, and hosts pool parties on holiday weekends in conjunction with Fortune Industries.[17]


The Manchester Grand Hyatt is located on the Marina’s waterfront, a few blocks away from the Gaslamp Quarter, Seaport Village, as well as the San Diego Convention Center.[18] The San Diego Trolley stops near the hotel which connects to several lines to reach the majority of the San Diego metropolitan area. The hotel is located only three miles from the San Diego Airport, less than a mile from Petco Park, an Amtrak train station, and Woodbury University's San Diego campus.[19]
