Stayed at the El Cordova the first weekend in June and had a great time. The hotel is pretty dated and needs some upgrades, but the room was comfortable and charming. When we arrived, they were doing construction on the patio of Miguel's in the courtyard and we happened to get a room that overlooked all the action. When I opened up the window in the bedroom, I came face to face with a crewman and a saw! The room itself had a bedroom, a kitchenette, a living room with a couch bed and 2 full bathrooms. Cute room, but couldn't deal with the construction noise...after all, we came here to get away from it all! After we said something to the front desk, they moved our location and in the process upgraded our room to a 2 bedroom suite! Awesome room with a living room and master bedroom that had windows that faced Orange Ave. and a view of the Hotel Del and the ocean. The other bedroom didn't have such a good view...it was the rooftop of the Brigantine restaurant. Through that bedroom was a kitchenette. The floorplan of this room was definately unique! The bathroom was pretty small, but it had all the amenities we needed. This is a boutique hotel and it's fun to come downstairs from your room and be surrounded by shops, restaurants and beautiful courtyards. The staff was awesome, especially the gentelman that upgraded our room! Miguel's, The Brigantine and the Marie Callenders across the street are highly recommended! Marie Callenders is within walking distance and near the underground parking area across the street. I suggest you use the 2 hour parking zones in front of the hotel to load and unload, but use the underground parking, as it is only $6 a day with in and out priveleges. Thank you Hotwire for a deal to die for on this hotel! I paid only $166 a nite for the orginal room which turned out to be about a $350 a nite room after the "upgrade".
