As the San Diego Red Bull Air Race approaches there is still time to grab a great hotel for the event! While several of the hotels right next to the air races are already booked, our super sleuths have done some research to find some great hotels that are still available.
Unfortunately, San Diego is a very expensive city, and especially downtown, so if you are looking for a fantastic hotel to use as your basecamp during the Red Bull Air Races then the Manchester Grand Hyatt can't be beat, but if you don't mind a little walking the Holiday Inn San Diego - On the Bay is still a great option.
Manchester Grand Hyatt
Manchester Grand Hyatt is located directly adjacent to the action on the embarcadero area. This gorgeous hotel also features rooms that feature views of the air race and windows that can open to let in the fresh sea breezes - or engine noise and fumes on this particular weekend, during the Red Bull Air Race J Rooms are not cheap, but this appears to be the last hotel with rooms available this close to the air race.
Rooms start at $379 for two double beds, or $404 for a room with a "premium view". Luckily for those of us on a tight budget, there are plenty of other hotels in downtown San Diego that are a bit cheaper, and San Diego is a great city for walking - even at night.
