We just had a mother-daughter birthday celebration over the weekend. I had stayed at the hotel since it opened numerous times over the years for business and pleasure but hadn't been back for a few years. I had forgotten how wonderful it is! The staff couldn't had been friendlier. The rooms are clean and beautifully-appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the sheets are divine. The comfy bathrobes are a very nice touch. We had a room with a view of the bay and enjoyed listening to the surf at night. The room was spacious and the bathroom a good size as well. We had two breakfasts and a dinner at Schooners and couldn't have been happier. We are regular visitors to the area and have a lot of favorite restaurants but were glad we opted to stay in and go to Schooners on our first night. The fish was fresh, the side dishes delicious and the service and ambiance were stellar. Our meal was actually superior to a famous restaurant we dined at the following night. We enjoyed drinks in the lobby listening to the pianist one night. The immaculate health club was one of the best in recent memory - dramatic water views and state-of-the-art equipment. Next time we plan to have a spa treatment and soak in the beautiful spa. The location is quite convenient for enjoying the stunning waterfront. We took several long walks, a surrey ride and a bike ride. We are already planning our next trip!
