The pros: 1) The hotel grounds are beautiful, it is located near the ocean and right by UCSD. 2) The bed was comfortable (my wife said it was the best sleep she has had in months). 3) In general the service was good. 4) Pool area is nice, but small. The cons: 1) Given the price, I expect better service.... More

I stayed here for a work conference both at Estancia and UCSD campus. From the friendly & hard working staff to the scenic walk through the property, you will not be disappointed. Rooms are spacious, clean, & up to date. The meeting rooms are comfortable/modern, & the restaurants on site have incredible food and drinks. We rented meeting spaces for... More

Was down for the weekend for Comic Con. I had the pleasure of lounging around the resort and taking advantage of their beautiful amenities. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful! So many little hidden nooks to read a book or relax. The pool is beautiful and a relaxing area. The food in either restaurant is excellent but pricey; typical hotel pricing.... More

This is the 3rd time staying at the hotel, so obviously we like it. The location is not too far from L.A. for a quick getaway. I think the price can be a bit high, we only stay if we get a good deal and so try to book early and with a AAA discount. The grounds are beautiful, it... More

This is a boutique hotel with more good then bad. Service was friendly and hospitable upon check-in. The room was clean and large. Unfortunately the bottom floor rooms are dark as the only real window is the glass door that lets you in. If you do 't want everyone to see you walking around--you have to close the curtains creating... More

We stayed here for one night over Memorial weekend. The grounds are nice (but not as extensive as I thought), the staff was friendly and attentive. But I expected more as I have stayed at other hotels in this collection. There is no bell service before 7am. Surprising as there seemed to be many waiting for it. Als, the pool... More

I stayed here for a work trip, and was very impressed by the service, aesthetics and amenities. The valet guys were excellent - though as a Northern California valet is still a bit exotic for me so perhaps I was overly impressed. ;) I loved the in-lobby coffee place with excellent espresso drinks - very important. I didn't get to... More

What a beautiful hotel!! As soon as you enter the grounds, you feel you are in a hotel in Napa Valley. The grounds are stunning and well kept.
