We want to do a detour and stop by Dana Point for a quick visit traveling from Carlsbad to Anaheim, maybe grab a drink or appetizer and enjoy the views. Would like to visit a fancy hotel there, but do not want to valet park. We are good walkers, and a local self-park garage or lot is fine.
Where is good place to park and get over to the Ritz Carlton, the St. Regis, or Montage? Of those 3, which is your favorite? Live music always a plus for us, and think I recall Ritz Carlton has piano player.
