We've put on thousands of miles this year and this hotel, bar none, is the best we've encountered. From the quality restoration to the helpful front desk person (Katie) to the efficient and funny bartender, to the manager with whom we had a cocktail....it was a dream vacation. The history of the Carlton stands on its own. They focused on quality and used the best materials for the restoration with gold fixtures in the bath (jacuzzi!!) and solid doors and crown molding making the rooms more like the Plaza than a hotel in a small town on the coast in California. It's exactly 1/2 way between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Make it a 'must do' if you're traveling in either direction. I can't wait to go back.
