I stayed at this hotel for two nights on a business trip, and it was a very comfortable stay. The room I was in had two queen beds and was quite large. Top notch decor, and the staff was very friendly and efficient. Beds were very comfortable. Note, that there is a daily parking fee of $35 for valet and $50 for self-parking. The wireless Internet access is not free in the hotel room, but my company had a special deal with Hilton which allowed me access. Internet speeds were fine.
This hotel has a very nice restaurant (6:30a breakfast open time), pool, hot tub, and fitness center (with free weights, universal machine, and treadmills, elliptical trainers, bike).
The hotel isn't actually on the beach, but right across the Pacific Coast Highway. There are no other restaurants immediately next to this property, but there are numerous restaurants, bars, etc. just half a mile North of the hotel within walking distance.
