Friendly staff everywhere who really make an effort to help and to do it with a Cali-infused smile.
Location is glorious - get a balcony bay-facing room if you can. Pool is remarkable - private, with plenty of chairs, beautiful grounds. Very clean, modern rooms. Would have liked more outlet plugs, but docking station was nice. Also, no exhaust fan in bathroom (but perhaps it was broken). Fitness center very well maintained ; group exercise classes offered on weekdays. Nice touch with the very popular fresh lemon water.
Take the hotel - owned water taxi from right behind the hotel across the water to Coronado ($6) and hit the beach.
Overall, we were very pleased. Hotel is right across the street from the train stop, walking distance to all shops and restaurants, and very well maintained. Highly recommend.
