The Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego will soon be the home of a Marilyn Monroe™ Spa, a national company that transforms traditional spa and salon concepts under the iconic Marilyn Monroe™ brand.

The spa is located on third floor of Harbor Tower and is easily accessible from the lobby level escalators or the Harbor Tower elevators. Offering stunning views of the San Diego Bay, the new spa will feature:

The Marilyn Monroe™ Spas brand currently has seven locations open among its three unique concepts: Marilyn Monroe™ Glamour Room, Marilyn Monroe™ Nail Lounge and Marilyn Monroe™ Spas, with additional locations opening soon.

“The new Marilyn Monroe™ Spa at the Grand Hyatt San Diego brings a reenergized spa experience to the already standout resort… one of engagement, luxury, approachability and fun,” said Weiss. “This is the fifth Hyatt that we will bring our branded spa to across the nation.
