LOVELY SAN DIEGO celebrating our upcoming birth


Dear Mr. Odior,

First, thank you for letting The Passionate Traveler plan your trip to celebrate your upcoming birth of your first child. I'm happy to share the results of my research with you. I think you will be very pleased with my recommendation. As a recap, you told me that you were looking for a relaxing getaway with your wife to San Diego that would expose you to the local culture which included the arts scene and some coastal activities. Based on your feedback, I was able to negotiate an amazing deal at a beautiful downtown San Diego hotel. The Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego is one of my Signature Collection hotels, so I am able to get you a few extra little perks there to make your stay even more amazing. The recommendation below includes round trip airfare, hotel fees, and suggested excursions.
