I live in San Diego. I think the US Grant, luxury collection, is the best SPG property in SD and stay there regularly on points. Uber is everywhere so no need for a car. The Marriott Marquis in downtown on the water is also nice and in a slightly better location but then you’re transferring points to Marriott

Man the US Grant looks super nice for 12k points per night, what a bargain!!

Westin gaslamp. Hyatt Marina if you have status

I’d say La Jolla (cliffs/beaches) or Gaslamp (heart of downtown) for areas, car not needed for the ladder

I’d agree with PWC1, also live in SD but stayed at the Grant on occasion when I was based in LA. It’s right at the north end of the gas lamp and an Uber to anywhere that’s worth visiting is at most 15 mins away

Westin Gaslamp is nice too

Do not....I repeat DO NOT....stay at the Sheraton Marina. I let my ambassador talk me into it. HUGE mistake

Haha why?

Westin gas lamp no car

I just took a vacation to San Diego, also from Chicago...if you're planning on just sticking around dowtown no need to get a rental car, everything is super close and Uber is cheap. The more plan to go outside that main area the more necessary a rental car is. I ended up getting one since we were doing a day trip down to LA for one of the days

US Grant

Don’t forget the Mexican food: - tacos el gordo - don Carlos - Lucha libre

I highly recommend checking out The Taco Stand in Downtown if tacos are your jam. Some of the best tacos I’ve had in a long time, try the camarón or al pastor for sure

Is it normal to be threatened to be fired after making mistakes that you had no idea were mistakes in the first place? I’m a junior litigation associate at a small firm, and the managing partner says things like “you aren’t providing value to the firm” or “you’re being paid to avoid mistakes like these” when I make mistakes due to, what I believe, to be a lack of guidance and instruction. As in, they could be easily avoided with a “please keep in mind X” or something like that. Thoughts?
