Stayed with out 3 1/2 month old for our anniversary. The hotel's website describes the "Oceanview Dream Suite" as "boasts a private balcony overlooking the Monterey Bay." We were disappointed that the balcony is roght above the pool with kids screaming below our "private balcony" until 11PM on Saturday night. The "Oceanview Dream Suite" is on the 3rd floor which is street level and situated right outside of a parking lot (random cars with music blaring throughout the night gives the impression of a Inn or Motel experience in this suite).
I will give them credit that the check-in process was smooth and we even received a call after check-in to confirm if everything was o.k. The Acquarius restaurant also had a nice ambiance. The "Ocenview Dream Suite" does have a really nice fireplace.
We previously stayed at the JDV sister Hotel Vitale in SF and were hoping for a more consistent experience, but it i consistently found myself holding my breath for the next surprise. I generally like my suite experiences to involve less mixed feelings.
