This was a last minute, same-day "splurge" booking for us. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a fabulous suite - huge bathroom, separate dressing area and work alcove, and private patio with jacuzzi and fireplace. The suite epitomized elegance and luxury - simply magnificent. The property's grounds were immaculately maintained and the layout ensured maximum privacy. The pool area evokes a bygone era of Hollywood glamour. My wife and I dined at the bar, where the cocktails were generous (at corresponding prices!), the burger quite tasty, and the service discrete. (The dark corners of the bar would seem to be a great place for a discrete rendezvous!) Our interactions with the staff were all very positive; the concierge provided us same day tickets to the Getty Villa (which is generally booked out weeks in advance). An exceptional experience and I look forward to returning some day soon.
