I really liked this hotel, including the room, the service, and the location. It is very close to 101/92, shopping, and lots of businesses. The staff was friendly upon checkin, and there were fresh cookies available at the counter. The elevators were fast. The lobby looked clean and in good condition - I'm not sure why they're renovating it soon.
My room was a king with a couch. The couch wasn't very comfortable, and the A/C was pretty loud when it cycled on. But that seems to be typical at most hotels, so I didn't ding the rating for that. The bed was comfortable, and the desk chair was adjustable. The Internet was fast and free for me. I also enjoyed the Keurig in the room. I didn't eat breakfast there because I hate paying $15 for a buffet breakfast. They might have had ala carte options, but I didn't ask. The lobby bar was fast, pleasant, and served good food. But to call it a restaurant is a stretch. They have a full menu, but it is small and not separated from the rest of the lobby.
The fitness center was a bit small and crowded in the early AM, but it is open 24 hours and not crowded in the middle of the night. :-) The pool is outdoors I believe.
The hotel is a bit pricey, but maybe it is just the area. I paid $179/night and with all the CA taxes, you end up paying over $200.
