The rooms are very spacious and clean, and the bathroom had a shower and a separate bathtub, which we loved. The location is great -- many of the major attractions are within walking distance, such as the Aquarium and the Wharf, and Carmel is a short drive away. When we arrived, we were, by our request, upgraded to a room with a water view and a balcony, which was definitely worth it for $16 extra/night. Although the hotel called it an "obstructed water view," we actually had a head-on view of the water, which was a nice surprise! (I imagine they call it "obstructed" because technically the view is partially blocked by buildings across the street, but they are far enough away that you have a very clear view of the water.) I would recommend eating at the hotel restaurant; the food was delicious and it had very nice views of the water. Although it was a bit chilly when we were there, the restaurant's outdoor seating area looked like a great place to spend an evening. There is also an outdoor area with fire pits, although they were not turned on when we were there. The hotel lobby is extremely nice, and includes comfortable chairs and a fire pit! If you have a car, which we did, I would definitely recommend getting the package that includes parking; otherwise, it was upwards of $20/night to park the car. Our biggest gripe was that guests have to pay for the wireless internet. Altogether, a very nice hotel in a great location.
