I stayed here for five days. The hotel is beautiful, and they have tons of super cute boutique shops in the hotel. Honestly, I think two or three nights would have been plenty. I don't eat seafood, and the restaurants inside the hotel primarily serve seafood. They have a fantastic breakfast buffet though!
The rooms seem somewhat outdated, even though they mentioned that they had just revitalized the rooms inside the main house of the hotel (which they call Victorian rooms). The rooms inside the Ocean View towers are nice...but again, they just seem sort of average in their quality rating. I stayed in an Ocean View room and then switched to a very modern-decorated room inside the main house. The room was larger than average. Because the hotel is so old, the floors are a little uneven and make noise...you can just tell the hotel is very old. Having said that, the hotel definitely has a certain charm and it's neat to experience it. I just think 3 nights is enough.
I think it's great for an experience. It's located in a great spot on Coranado island, close to tons of shops and restaurants that are all within walking distance down Orange Street. It has it's own private beach, which was voted one of the best in America. They offer different activities, for a cost, like s'mores on the beach at night. They also have an ice-skating rink in December, where you can skate on an ice-rink right on the beach!
The front desk staff were SO friendly and helpful. The concierge on the other hand was horribly rude. They were rude the last time I was there a year ago too!
