CHAPTER 5: TODAY
In late 2003, the hotel was purchased by the very ancestors of the land on which she stood. Sycuan Tribal Development Corporation (STDC), the business arm of Sycuan, a sovereign Tribe of the Kumeyaay Nation, acquired the 11-story icon for $45 million. With this purchase, THE US GRANT and her legacy was returned, in so many ways, to her original roots.
Sycuan made the decision to renovate THE US GRANT. What was to be a seven-month, $26 million endeavor became a 21 month, $56 million dollar testament and commitment to the property.
The renovation, completed in 2006, was followed by a $13 million restyling, completed in 2017, to reimagine the hotel's storied history into an enriching design narrative.
In nearly a century, THE US GRANT has seen it all. A great city rose at her steps in large part because of her persuasion. Those who have known her have embraced the new romance with her return. And those who now find her for the first time are captured by her grace, elegance and enduring presence.
For over 100 years, THE US GRANT has been celebrated as a San Diego icon, steeped in timeless elegance and legendary style.
