My daughter and I returned for our third stay and it was just like old home week. It was great to catch up with Larry, Patty, Steve, Judy and Jay. Everything at the hotel was as beautiful and relaxing as always. We loved the new Harley Davidson Limo and thoroughly enjoyed Jay driving us to dinner downtown. The car is quite a head turner and conversation piece.
We enjoyed the local restaurants. Every morning we would walk to Elmers and have breakfast or brunch. It is clean with great service and great food. Very reasonable and consistent The Lyons is also within walking distance and has excellent prime rib for dinner. (or seafood and steaks)
Also loved Melvyns downtown...wonderful steak and sea food. The restaurant is a window to the bygone days of the Rat Pack era. It is a marvellous fine dining restaurant and worth every penny.
We always go to the fire bar at Matchbox downtown for happy hour and appetizers. Such a great view of the main drag and you meet lots of interesting people there.
It is always nice to return to our hotel and enjoy the beautiful grounds, heated pool, and comfy rooms.
Now that I am back to Canada and enduring our crazy winter storms, I am already dreaming of next years trip to Palm Springs.
