My husband and I visited the Glorietta Bay Hotel in early December. This lovely hotel was decked out for Christmas and really put us in the holiday mood. Most impressive about our stay were both the staff and beautifully appointed room. We stayed in the library room, which is located on the first floor just aside from the grand staircase. Visitors in the main inn are treated to nightly turndown service complete with chilled milk and cookies. In addition, there is the option to have breakfast brought to the room at no extra cost. A buffet breakfast is included for all guests with seating at tables in the living room and outdoors on the porch.
The staff was very attentive and friendly. This included the front desk as well as the breakfast staff and housekeeping. A nice touch is the availability of free hotel postcards, which the front desk will happily stamp and send for you.
The hotel room was clean and comfortable. It included a nice sized refrigerator, terry cloth robes and thick towels. The one comment that I have is the lack of a convenient outlet in the bathroom. Also the outlets in the room were at the baseboard making it difficult to plug in phones and computers. Other hotels that we have stayed in recently now have outlets on the night stands as part of the lamp base.
In all, I would highly recommend The Glorietta Bay. It is conveniently located to the shops and beach. The Hotel Del Coronado is directly across the street. The location and cozy atmosphere of the Glorietta Bay made it a perfect choice for us.
