My husband and I stayed at this gorgeous hotel a couple years ago and then returned last week with our children. Both stays were lovely. The hotel is historic, clean, and luxurious. It features a comfortable and beautiful pool our children enjoyed very much, blooming flowers everywhere, and a short walk down to Children's Cove and over to all the shops and restaurants. We only needed our car for San Diego jaunts. We walked everywhere. Our three daughters (8,11,13) played chess by the fire, dined with us on the lovely terrace, and slept well in our junior suite. The rollaway bed was surprisingly comfortable and our suite was plenty large enough.
The staff treated the girls kindly. We worried it would feel wrong to bring children to such a fancy hotel, but they were welcomed and they behaved themselves well.
DH and I already booked our next stay and we only checked out yesterday. It is absolutely worth the money. We are springing for an ocean view for our next visit. The view of the street and hills was lovely, too. Truly, you can't go wrong staying here.
