Cool view from this rooftop lounge (3rd or 4th story), opens at 2pm and closes "whenever they want" which is understandable considering they probably don't get anyone but hotel guests unless someone decides to drive there, pay $22 for hotel parking instead of going to the harbor or San Clemente pier to watch the sunset.

Good view, beautiful view of ocean and outstanding food. The service was excellent, typical of our entire experience at this hotel.

you wouldn't think a hotel roof-top bar could be this swanky. great views, good poo-poo snacks, and reasonably priced booze. Sometimes there's even live music.

If it wasn't for the bad service we received I would rate this a 4 or 5 star. Everything seemed fine at first but after 45 minutes we still didn't have our shrimp tempura, just our drinks. When we asked the waitress all she said was: "well, since it comes from downstairs it takes a while".. no apologies or anything. We almost cancelled the food order but we were too tired to go elsewhere. Once that shrimp came it was good, just surprised at how long it took when only 3-4 tables were taken. Nice view and weather, loved the heaters and firepit.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise that we learned of from Restaurant.Com, we took a chance on it even though it had not been previously rated in TripAdvisor. We were pleasanty rewarded with a ocean view (distant), great food, great service, and reasonable prices. This restaurant is on the roof of the Doubletree Hotel in Dana Pt, with outdoor seating. It is protected by glass and portable heaters for chillier days. It is elegant yet casual, but with the 1st class service and food you would expect in a five star restaurant. They have a half price (everything) happy hour from 2-4 that cannot be beat. David was our server and he was outstanding! We will be back!
