The Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego: Urban Oasis on the Water
Situated on the waterfront in beautiful downtown San Diego is the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Offering stunning views of San Diego and minutes from most of the top attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, the Gaslamp Quarter and SeaWorld, this hotel is an urban oasis.
The Manchester Grand Hyatt also offers world-class dining, a full service spa and a full Business Center for those who like to take working vacations.
This luxury hotel has 1,625 rooms that all have Wi-Fi, in-room safety deposit box, full bath amenties including a blow dryer, coffemaker, spectacular city or bay views and windows that open to capture the sea breezes coming off of San Diego Bay. The Manchester Grand Hyatt is truly a home away from home.
For those who like to bring their dog on vacation, the Manchester Grand Hyatt is pet-friendly. For $30 per day, guests can enroll their dog or cat in the Pampered Paws Program. Your pet will receive a water bowl, treats and a daily delivery of squeaky toys. The program also includes a welcome letter, special door hanger and pet-friendly room service menu.
According to Kristin Spitz, Electronic Sales & Marketing Manager for the Manchester Grand Hyatt, four-legged guests have been well received by staff and guests alike.
“[We’ve received] all positive feedback because we know our guests love to travel with their pets. Our Pampered Paws program is very popular,” Spitz told i Love Dog-Friendly.
The Manchester Grand Hyatt allows one pet per room. Pets must not exceed 50 pounds and must be licensed and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Pets are not allowed in the restaurants, bars, lounges, health club or spa. However, they can join their pet parents on the patios. Pets should be leashed when wandering around, and guests are responsible for any damage their pet causes.
The Manchester Grand Hyatt hosts a Yappy Hour every Thursday from 5-7 p.m. for guests and their four-legged friends at Sally’s Seafood on the Water. Specials include 50 percent off all appetizers, $3 draft beers and $5 well cocktails and wine. Four-legged guests will receive complimentary treats.
Spitz said, “Yappy Hour at Sally’s is a favorite for locals and hotel guests alike. It’s a great social time for guests to relax on our bayfront patio and enjoy food and drink specials while their dogs socialize and enjoy their doggie-treats.”
Spitz recommends pet parents bring their pet’s health certificates with them, and to call the concierge desk and let them know you are traveling with your pet. They will be happy to suggest nearby activities and parks that are pet-friendly around the hotel.
