Two Historic Hotels - Combined
The Horton Grand Hotel is comprised of two different historic hotels from the mid 1880's combined into one complex: The Grand Horton Hotel and the Brooklyn-Kahle Saddlery Hotel. The two hotels were located where the now defunct Horton Plaza Mall is and ordered to be demolished. Instead they were taken apart brick by brick in the late 1970's then put back together and restored.
The new Horton Grand Hotel which is comprised of both the Brooklyn-Kahle Saddlery Hotel and the Grand Horton Hotel opened in the 1986.
The Horton Grand Hotel hat has been a favorite over the decades with the likes of Wyatt Earp, Lou Costello, and Babe Ruth as well as national dignitaries.
Some say that the Horton is haunted from some ghostly guests of the past. In fact, the Horton is featured in the Most Haunted Places in San Diego as well as in Best Things to do in San Diego.
The Perfect Hotel in the Gaslamp Quarter
The Horton Grand is not your average big-chain hotel, and that’s what makes it perfect for business and leisure travelers who prefer an experience that they can’t have anywhere else.
From the minute you enter the building, you’ll see the Victorian influences in the décor, including dark wood paneling and architectural details. The 132 rooms in the hotel also have that historic feel, with marble-framed gas fireplaces and hand-carved wood furniture.
The bilingual hotel staff bring more of the good old days with their commitment to providing excellent customer service. They are dedicated to each guest to ensure a stay at the Horton is indeed grand.
