 Grandma Juice Travels:
Trip To San Diego Sheraton Resort & Marina

Yep! That beautiful place right there… that’s where we called home for the week! I know! We totally scored! The Sheraton Resort & Marina is seriously beyond just a pretty place. If you’re planning a family trip to San Diego, I don’t know why you’d stay anywhere else!

After our craptastic road trip & the breakdown in hell, we pulled into the Sheraton Resort about 9PM. We were hot, tired, cranky… took them up on the valet parking, because… obviously! It took me literally about 2 1/2 minutes to check in. I was really pretty impressed considering the line of other hot, tired and cranky peeps waiting. They don’t mess around.

While we waited for the bellman to bring up our 5859604 bags and my laptop (handle with care) I went out on the balcony to take a peek. And that’s the view! I was kind of in awe, really. The camera has never seen such a gorgeous shot. They are located RIGHT in the bay! If you stay at the Sheraton on your trip to San Diego, you can see not only that gorgeous view but the San Diego skyline as well! Living here in Vegas, all I see is dirt…

Oh! Lookie there! That’s what else I saw from the balcony! The Sheraton has 3 pools and 3 hot tubs! That one was mine! Ok well not all mine, I shared with Grandpa and Ethan. But my cabana boy with fuffy (I just made that word up) alcoholic drinks with umbrellas in them and towels and snacks and, and, and…. he was waiting down there for me to get a good night’s sleep and see him 1st thing in the morning! I think he even winked at me! (don’t tell Grandpa)

Resorts always have way better linens then you do at home, don’t they? Why is that I wonder? Anyways, after sleeping in from our long car trip to San Diego, I had to take another peek at what I could see in the day light… to give you some perspective…

That’s my plush digs… on the 11th floor. They have 1,053 guestrooms and suites which are split between two towers – 705 in the Marina Tower and 348 in the Bay Tower.  (we stayed in a suite in the marina tower) All rooms feature the Sheraton Sweet SleeperSM Bed. And again… why can’t I get these linens for my bed?? I’m asking my new BFF Mark from The Sheraton how to snag some! Also, the Executive Club Level rooms offer complimentary continental breakfast and hors d’oeuvres. (I’ll show you what trays of awesomeness  landed in my room each night in a sec, you HAVE to see this other stuff 1st!)

That’s the full on daytime view! Pretty, right? I think planning our family trip to San Diego was one of the smartest things I’ve done lately! Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this every morning? Beats the brown, Vegas dirt any day! AND!! The Sheraton Resort & marina is just minutes from the historic Gaslamp District. Also right down the jogging path is the seriously coolest spot with off-beat restaurants, a bit of an artsy type district  to walk around and soak up the local flavor! Seaport Village, the San Diego Convention Center, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld (that post is coming up this week!) Really, everything is right there just waiting for you!

Speaking of waiting for you! This tray of very fine, yummy sweets was waiting for us after being out and about one day! I know!! The coolest chocolate I’ve ever seen! (yes, I shared some) Also, my BFF Mark won my heart. There was a special *Grandma Juice* tray waiting… it had… WINE!!!! I love my BFF Mark. And honestly, all the 200 employees at The Sheraton go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and are nice and comfy while you & the family are enjoying your trip to San Diego! I can’t say enough good things about this place!

Tomorrow, I’ll fill you in on all the activities the Sheraton Resort & Marina has to offer and show you everything we did!  It was a total blast!

Oh… One thing I wish I could have had them help me with… the humid air wreaking havoc with my hair! I arrived looking all Angelina Jolie smexy and left looking like the love child of Peter Frampton & Roseanne Rossanadana!

For you youngsters… I give you this:

Check back in on me tomorrow! You’ll see my hair and all the rockin’ stuff we did!

Our trip to San Diego was partially sponsored by The Sheraton Resort & Marina.


  1. The linens at the Sheraton are the best, as are their bathrooms!

    • Grandma Juice says

      I’m totally going to figure out how to get my hands on some of those cozy linens1 why can’t you find stuff like that for your own bed??
      The bathrooms… !!! Makes ya feel pretty OK about pooping away from home, eh??

  2. Wow! That looks like a fabulous place to stay! Just a wee bit jealous right now! 🙂

  3. Those chocolates look amazing. I wouldn’t have shared!

    • Grandma Juice says

      If we all didn’t walk in and see them at the same time, I totally would have hid them 🙂

  4. Looks beautiful. Something to consider for the future. Now how do I get a partially sponsored San Diego trip from the Sheraton? LOL, JK, or am I ;).

  5. Nice digs! Looks like you had an amazing time!

  6. This looks so luxurious. I would enjoy that Sheraton very much. Also, I adore Roseann Roseannadanna!

    • Grandma Juice says

      There’s a few people that came to mind I was sure would know who I was referring to, you my love are one of them 🙂
      I added the video for the youngin’s… they missed that era.
      Good times, sucks to be them.

  7. That place looks amazing! And thanks for the video trip down memory lane from someone old enough to appreciate it! Can’t wait to check back and see your hair tomorrow and read more!!

    • Grandma Juice says

      Poor kids these days! They have no clue what they missed back when folks were REALLY funny, huh?
      Yes, my hair, it really did that down there 🙂

  8. Now that looks like a sweet vacation! That dessert is making me hungry! Yum!

  9. Sounds like a cush vacay! I am glad to know I am not the only one who travels with more bags than I can carry 🙂

  10. That looks really NICE!

  11. Looks like a great place to stay! Love the pools!

  12. Thanks for the tip! We usually visit SD over Nevada Day Weekend and I still have to book the hotel! Definitely gonna check this one out.

  13. What a fun peek into your stay at the Sheraton! I will definitely have to keep them in mind for my next San Diego trip.

  14. We’re looking for a great hotel for a staycation next spring and I think the Sheraton would be perfect! Love the pools.

  15. Wow! I’ve never stayed anywhere that nice before. The view, food, and drinks 😉 sound amazing!

  16. I was just in SD myself!!! My family and I used to stay at that Sheraton when my brother was in law school there. SO much fun.

  17. Looks beautiful! Sounds like they have everything at that hotel. I spent 4th of July in San Diego and I love visiting there. I too have Monster Hair when near the ocean and it scares me!

    • Grandma Juice says

      Kinda of like some undiscovered sea creature with seaweed tangled all up in there. But not 🙂

  18. Why is it the chocolate stands out the most?? LOL!

  19. Wow, that looks like a really nice resort. Will have to keep it in mind if I ever travel to San Diego.


  1. […] had planned to hit up The San Diego Zoo, but from our balcony view at The Sheraton Hotel & Marina all Ethan could focus on was that very cool pirate ship docked right below us in Mission Bay. So, […]

  2. […]  (there’s my hair I warned you about, get the giggles out of the way now) […]

  3. […] is actually one of my favorite drinks all year long. In fact, when we went away to San Diego, the Martini Bar made the most fantabulous one for me! I’m going to pour a tall one and hope […]
