The lobby of the hotel is beautiful. The staff is friendly. The rooms themselves were fine. Not a ton of space but adequate. The restaurant menu sounded great. The bar had some local craft beers on tap. The outdoor patio area was pretty.
My biggest complaint is the $18 parking fee and the dark somewhat isolated sidewalk to & from the parking a garage.
My other issue was that the rooms could have used some, I guess I'll call it maintenance type cleaning. The carpet had dirty spots, & the throw on the end of the one bed that had one had strange stains.
From what we found the "Business Center" was a few time-limited computers in the lobby that had issues accessing work related sites.
I like the Del Mar area that this hotel is in because it's not the "rest" of Del Mar near the fairgrounds. What I wasn't necessarily fond of is getting in & out of the hotel due to the orientation of the hotel on the street. But everything in this business park area has the same issue.
We ended up at this hotel because we bid on a 3 1/2 star level on Priceline rather than our usual 3 star in this area. The 3 star is the Double Tree that, while not as "pretty" and not featuring what seems to be an outstanding restaurant, doesn't charge for parking. You'd think these places being almost directly across the street from each other parking would be either paid or not at both. Odd.
I'd stay again for the right price, but I'd prefer the Double Tree that has free parking and seems cleaner. Anyone can visit the restaurant.
