I'm always looking for a hotel with pool facilities where you can actually swim laps. Although the depth on one side of the pool is only 3 feet, the other side is plenty deep for flip turns and it is 25 yards long with four lanes for swimming laps! Plus it is a very artistic pool - designed by Julia Morgan with tiles and a view into the garden. Lovely hotel with great rooms - though they can be fairly loud if your neighbors aren't polite (but the staff took care of our partying neighbors after the first compliant!). Great location too! We'll be back!
