Arriving from a long drive late afternoon the night before St Patricks Day I waw welcomed by the hotel staff at the entrance. Everything was very professional, everyone was very alert, helping out with everything from parking to bringing in the luggage. Hotel lobby is fantastic, everything is new, the color combinations and details a pleasure to look at. There are many leather chairs and sofas, nice lamps and decor, and it just makes the whole experience really great. Check-in was fast, and the front desk receptionist gave us valuable information about all we needed to know about the Carlsbad area. The hotel even has a complementary bring and pick-up service, so if you like you can hit town and return back for free. Mike was the driver for the night and he gave great advice about dining options in Carlsbad. When you stay at this hotel you feel that everybody takes care of you in a special way, so I would really recommend a stay here. If you do not want to go far this hotel has all you need for dining, wine cellar and bar. Outside there are cozy tables with heaters installed in the ceiling, and there is also several fire places you can sit around. The weather was hazy, so I did not see the sunset, but the location is perfect for this, so I have to come back later another time.. Just across the street you get access to the beach, and here you can walk for hours, look at the surfers, waves, pick nice pebble stones or just relax and listen to the waves. Before leaving I had a great breakfast, and I felt so at home that I did not want to leave yet. I really recommend this hotel. The people working here are fantastic!
