I have stayed here at least once a year for the last 4 years or so. Last time I reviewed this property I gave it 5 stars. This time I am moving it down to 4 stars.
The property is gorgeous, and has great views. Overall it is a very nice place to stay, and I would come here with my family if I was in Carlsbad for any reason. I really like this hotel.
So why the downgrade? Well a couple of things, one the overall cleanliness of the property was down a little. It just wasn't as immaculate as last time I was there. (in their defence I did see people vacuuming inside of chandeliers and cleaning carpets) But overall it just felt slightly beat up compared to before.
We were there on business with a conference. This is part of why I am downgrading as well, the set-up staff had roughly about a 30min to 1 hour response time for any request. As you know that is not good when trying to set-up or run a meeting. Several of the housemen were very gruff and short and by no stretch pleasant to work with. Not all of them mind you, just a couple.
Overall I recommend this hotel stil, it is just not as good as when it was the four seasons previously....
