San Diego Memorial Day Hotel Deal :: W Hotel or U.S. Grant
To Californians, Memorial Day Weekend is not that big of a deal compared to East Coasters who share a house in the Hamptons or down the shore. Yet a holiday is a holiday and San Diego hotels are taking advantage of that.
The U.S. Grant Hotel is offering rooms for the weekend at a rate of $269 on their website but no cancellations allowed (hotels.com has $279 listed.) These are actually pretty good prices for a Luxury Collection hotel from Starwood. Although, do realize you will be paying almost a $1,000 if you stay through the weekend which to us is crazy to spend and still be in America. Unless it's Vegas. We would do that for Vegas.
You can get something similar over at US Grant's sister property, the W San Diego. However, this hotel has "thoughtfully" put together a Memorial Day package in which parking and two cocktails is rolled into the room rate of $309. Just a regular room rate without the extras is $237 and is non-refundable.
While both hotels are in San Diego proper and not close to the beach, the W San Diego has the popular rooftop beach bar (above) so you can dig your toes in the sand if you please.
As for the beach hotels, unless you want to stay at a major chain like Hilton, Sheraton or Marriott the better San Diego beach hotels are starting at $400 a night. Pretty much the only way you can get a room under $200 a night in SanD is to stay in places like Comfort or Vagabond Inns so we say hit up Waikiki instead.
