We stayed over winter break while we had family visiting from out of state. The price for off season was acceptable for location and being an upscale hotel. The rooms we were given were a little difficult to find and went through a maze of inside then outside and then inside our tower, but since CA winters aren't too bad didn't really bother once we were able to locate our rooms. We had adjoining rooms that overlooked the seasonal ice skating rink, a little noisy while operating, but also a treat to watch out the windows. The in-laws had a single king with a pull out sofa, and were quite pleased with the space and also the large library of area sights and even novels. They commented it was the best hotel they ever stayed in. Our room had 2 doubles, and was a little tight with 2 adults and 3 small kids, but we just left the adjoining door open for the social time anyway. Appreciated having a fridge for water, milk, and juice for the little ones. The little ones also enjoyed walking around the lobby looking at the hand crafted ships on display. Highly recommend, since there are so many places nearby to eat, look at and just plain adventure to.
