Stayed here 4 nights for a business conference and was supremely impressed. First would be the people...all were exceptionally helpful and friendly in a genuine way. The room itself, actually a suite (#471) was wonderful: large, great view, great amenities, super comfortable bed, even a telescope. The hotel restaurant and room service were also exceptional. Just a wonderful place to...

My wife and I went on trip on the PCH, between San Fransisco and LA, to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in 5 luxury hotels, and the Ritz was by far the best of the 5 ! The views were amazing, the service exceptional and the room was beautiful. The hotel gave us bikes to go on a ride, and...

My family and I recently returned from a three-night stay at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay. Like our last visit two years ago, everything was spectacular. Everyone from the bell captains to the front desk staff to the management make such a special effort to create a personalized stay for guests. They do this by greeting guests by name,...

This is one of my favorite Ritz-Carlton properties, which carries a great sense of European castle's style. Even though the hotel is far away from city, it arranges activities to keep you entertained - we got to make our own s'more at one night. The restaurant is great and no need to bother finding somewhere else to eat.

The RC HMB is a very handy escape for 3-4 nights. Longer and one might as well take up golf because there was a slight disinclination to venture too far afield save for the short drive to the redwoods where we saw heaps of cute banana slugs.
