No Joke, the fire could be seen this morning all the way over in Half Moon Bay at 530am.

The guests were all evacuated to the beach, apparently none of the guest rooms were touched.

I read about this on LG this morning. Glad no one was hurt. Wonder if they will move the guests to another hotel?

I'd wait & see how it shakes out in a day or two, don't rush to re-book somewhere else if you really want to stay at the ABR. They may be able to make repairs quickly, depending on the damages.

Not wishing to fear monger .. but if main reception is gone, the bookings may be in complete dissarray or lost. I wouldn't be surprised if your travel agent wouldn't be contacting you soon.

I think that a call to your TA may at least be in order.
