I have no further information other than that this was publicized
Referring to the Pico location, as the La Brea location has been operating with new onership and name for a while already (same food pretty much)

Was there today. No one in my group was impressed. Never been before so have nothing to compare it to.

No stars is better than 5 stars :P.

While I'm really glad you had an amazing trip, like many of your trips, it would be a nightmare for me. I need a luxury resort.

Anyone been to any 5 star resorts in the Caribbean /Mexico that has snorkeling right off the hotel beach? Fairmont  Southampton had it but I'm looking for another option.

But actually your right in a way.... the presidential suite I saw on the 39th floor is something to avoid. Lower ceilings. And smaller windows compared to other rooms.
A review I read on TripAdvisor or Google summed it up pretty well... The rooms are more Hyatt regency not what you would expect from a grand Hyatt. Housekeeping was so bad. All they did was make the beds and give new towels. Our garbage was left where it was on the dining room table, no crumbs wiped up, shoes not moved to the side... Even my family members who were impressed with the suite couldn't believe that.

MACHESTER HYATT GRAND HOTEL
was really something special.

Service was beyond personal and talented!
(except when ordering stuff up to the room from housekeeping or room service!)


I have a Ton of tips if anyone is planning on staying there or going to SD

PM me for now
or wait for my TR

Totally disagree. Was super unimpressed and housekeeping was a disaster. I only had the 2 bedroom signature suite not the presidential but wished I were back at the Fairmont when I was there. I'm a bit of a hotel snob I guess. Did not feel luxurious even in a huge suite, also beds were not comfortable and not the bedding I look forward to at hotels. My other family members were very happy and the size of the suite seriously impressed them.

really based on preference if you like going at night and seeing restaurants, nightlife, bars and historic downtown district then you might like gaslamp district  but personally I don't care for that too much.  Zoo more pleasurable and more memorable certainly if you have kids with you I think zoo is better option IME
Spent 3 very action packed days in SD last week with 2 kids in order they enjoyed
1. Legoland by far their favorite, they were in heaven there
2. seaworld was amazing as well
3. Zoo
I found all 3 great as an adult too. I would probably switch 1 and 2 but the zoo was definitely 3rd for me as well even though I did enjoy it. Loved the seaworld shows. San Diego is such a great family vacation spot. 3.5 days was too short.

DW has a flight tomorrow morning 8:30 AM from PHL-CLE. Keep the flight or switch to a later flight?

Any suggestions/strategies?
Best strategy for a situation like this is keep original flight but buy anywhere that's refundable (priceline Amex etc) alternatives as insurance. That was the only way I got out during a storm. Bought a ticket on every airline. And the one that flew, I took. But can be costly. Once the flight is canceled its too late usually... May already be too late.

What’s better the zoo Friday and rush through it.

Or Saturday night

Has anyone ever went to the zoo at night?
Was there last week,  started afternoon into night. Would definitely 10000% not go only at night. Animals are basically gone, lights at the la zoo were way more impressive. I happened to enjoy seaworld way more than the zoo. Although was my second time to that zoo this year. Also keep in mind nights in SD are very cold.

Please post expiration date for these when posting. Some people are, but others are not. It's pretty important.

Interesting, I'm planning on being there sun-wed so not sure if the beach will be as crowded during the week.. I want to be there not San Diego so that I can drive to LA in the evening for dinner, not particularly interested in eating at Ralph's in SD 4 nights in a row...
Stay in LA then, more to do and lots to eat. 4 nights laguna will be very boring IMO. SD does also have the place Cafe at the jcc,  but more important than food, so much to do! Was just there again last week. The Fairmont there is amazing if you can buy certificates. I didn't eat Ralph's take out every meal, I actually cooked a little in my room. Brought a burner, a pot and pans and used Ralph's for the raw ingredients.

Anyone have any feedback on the Ritz Laguna? Were they easy with upgrades? Things to do in the area?
Upgraded me to a fire pit room, which actually was my favorite part of the place (the balcony with the fire pit, if no suite available,definitely ask for that).  I was very excited to go to this hotel but very let down. The views are phenomenal, but that was about it. I was there on a weekend in the summer, beach was super crowded and it's a public beach which bothered us, although it was nice to watch the locals surf.  If I could go back and redo my trip I would cut it out entirely. I had it sandwiched between LA and San Diego, I would have rather been in San Diego longer.

Why does no one talk about Pico Cafe? I've been in LA 3 times in the past few months and been really happy with their food. Got it delivered to my hotel for brunch a few times each trip. Not fancy, but always good.
