Overall a exquisite hotel!! It has an old "Victorian" feel to it mixed with Hollywood at the same time! The hotel staff is super friendly and so very helpful!! Plenty of room with a view of the balcony! The beds were so comfortable and definitely high quality with pressed sheets that feel so good when you get into them! The bathroom was spotless and they even cleaned the glass shower daily! We consider it one of the best values for a hotel room from a well traveled person's POV. My brother said it was the best hotel room he ever stayed at.(:

Staying at this hotel was quite an experience. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable beds. The public rooms were very well decorated - full of charm and history. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed, so we had to go out for food. Maybe next time.

When you are up wine tasting, biking, coming back from the coast or whatever, the Carlton is a delightful taste of long-ago elegance. Service is excellent, rooms are comfortable, if a little cramped, and there is an excellent in house restaurant and bar. Not only that....it's just up the street from Sylvester's - most excellent burgers and breakfasts!

Even in the standard room, one had the sense of "old Hollywood" with the beautiful period reproduction furniture & upscale fabrics. Well designed built-in cupboard for the coffee maker along with china cups, a very comfortable bed and a hanging tapestry added much to the ambiance. BUT, my favorite amenity was the fabulous marble tiled bathroom with jacuzzi tub and separate shower, large vanity, pocket doors to separate toilet room, more built-in shelves for towels - it was just heavenly.

I was fortunate to enjoy yet another stay at The Carlton for several days during mid-May, and once again was reminded why I keep coming back. The staff is always very friendly and helpful with every detail. The room is very comfortable, the bed the most comfy I've ever found while traveling. Internet access (a "must" for me) is excellent (both wireless and LAN are available). Very quiet and peaceful.

Room Tip: If possible, I recommend The Carlton Suite, even if only for a day or two of your visit. Very luxur...

Bakery Review: (I haven't stay at the Hotel) “Carlton Cafe and Bakery” Very good Coffee, Fresh European baked goods & breads that are prepared and baked in the Bakery on the first floor of the Carlton Hotel to the right of the Hotel entrance. (The restaurant to the left of the entrance is not open at this time) the Bakery has breakfast and lunch (I believe Bakery is closed on Monday and Tuesday?) I’m becoming a regular, nice Art store around the block on Traffic Way called “The Artery”. The Baker also hosts Tango (Argentine) Milongas: Third Saturday of the month, 8:00-midnight 6005 El Camino Real, no cover.

Loved, loved, loved this hotel. Front desk was friendly and upbeat. Hotel was beautiful. The room was amazing. Jetted tub was wonderful and so nice after a long car ride. The king size bed was so comfy made for a wonderful nights sleep.
