Very nice hotel. The outside, lobby and front desk area are beautiful and very chic. Our room (2 queen beds) was nice. Nice decor and had a fireplace. It was clean, and I love the location. It was minutes (to drive) from Fisherman's Wharf and The Cannery.
There is an awesome French bakery across the street - their croissants taste like it is from Paris! We also ate at The Wild Plum which is across the street, around the corner by Denny's. Pretty good but I preferred the french bakery.
We mentioned to the hotel that it was my son's 9th birthday and they surprised him with two cans of soda and a box of fancy chocolates, and a nice message, in our room when we checked in. My son was so happy!!! They made his day! I thought that was so thoughtful.
The room was clean, comfortable and smelled nice. There was a fridge, coffee machine with Wolfgang Puck coffee, free internet, a fancy sink... Our room wasn't noisy at all , as some people mentioned theirs were.
We liked the pool and jacuzzi too, even though it felt like it was a little chilly to swim (weather was in the 60s), but my kids still got some usage out of it.
Our room was in a different building than the main building, and we had to walk behind the main building to go out (down the driveaway) to the entrance of the other building. I didn't like that (it was probably a former motel), but what can you do... it's in a different building. Our room also had a small balcony which overlooked the pool area.
We had dinner our first night at the hotel. It was very peaceful, and we had their prix fixe dinner (short ribs but tasted like stew meat). Not so great food, but the atmosphere was very calming and relaxing, with beautiful decor and a nice large fireplace. My kids loved their food and was happy to be there. And after 5 hours of driving from Yosemite, we didn't feel like driving anywhere else.
The Cannery and Fisherman's Wharf is just a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Go check out Monterey Bay Aquarium... very pricey but really beautiful. My kids loved it. Lots of good seafood restaurants are at Fisherman's Wharf. And there is a shopping center (with PF Changs, and many other restaurants) just down the road from the hotel.
