We celebrated my birthday with a weekend at the Ritz. Only an hour away from San Francisco, it felt a world away, with its beautiful grand hotel property, lushly landscaped golf course, and of course amazing views of the crashing Pacific waves. We did not get a firepit room (the premium for a firepit and terrace was just too difficult to justify!) but our standard room, which was on a higher level than the firepit rooms, was quite nice, with a very spacious bathroom. We brought our young infant and were treated to a very high level of welcome service from the start--everyone from the valet to the conceirge at check-in wished me happy birthday, and the manager personally gifted our baby with some toys. (We've stayed at the Ritz in New York and Boston and never received this kind of personalized service at those properties). We had requested a pack-and-play and it was a bit flimsy, but they included blankets and a nice bath set for my baby. The food at the Conservatory was wonderful, if expensive, and though we had brunch reservations at the real restaurant, we canceled it when we saw what a mob scene it was (and I personally do not like buffets). If we had known in advance, we would've just gotten breakfast at the Conservatory again. All in all, a wonderful way to spend a birthday weekend, but your wallet does pay for it!
