Nice stay with quality service, in general it's Riltz Carlton, we were expecting more from the room size and amnetities comparing several other brands we stayed. Restaurants are good, in the way of great views.

This Ritz Hotel has a low key and beautiful setting on Half Moon Bay. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The food is creative and nicely prepared. I am sure you will enjoy your visit. Try to ask for a room with a view!

This hotel set's the standard for luxury, beauty both inside and out and just about everything else. The room was spectacular and surprisingly fun - we had all the fixings for "Smore's" and cooked them up on our outdoor fire all the while listening to the ocean waves breaking on the shore and watching the crescent moon slowly move across...

We recently went on a girls trip to San Francisco. The end of our visit include one night stay at the Ritz. We had a fire pit room overlooking the bay. We indulged ourselves with a visit to the spa for a message and facial. The trip couldn't have been topped off any better. We ordered Chinese from a local...

The hotel staff went out of their way to make this a memorable and wonderful experience for us both. Rose petals on the mattress were a lovely touch. The food is some of the best we've ever eaten. Many stars for the food.
