We stayed for three nights in December 2012. The three words to describe this boutique hotel is: location, value, charm. It is perfectly located. It's literally across the street from the Del Coronado, a short stroll to the Del Coronado beach, right next to the Orange street shopping and restaurants, and just around the corner from the public Golf course. We felt we got a great value. We stayed for three nights and paid $499 all taxes included, parking included, a super awesome continental breakfast each day, and a bottle of wine. So, the calculated $499 divided by three nights is $167 a night -- but it is obviously less with all the included values. As great as the Del Coronado is, the value here at Glorietta is hard to pass up. Also, at Glorietta, since it's such a small property, you can enter and leave the property quickly without having to walk through several hallways, lobbies, elevators like the big hotels. That was nice since we were on vacation and wanted to maximize our relaxing time. Also, you can park right in front of your room, which makes it so convenient to come and go. I really really came to appreciate that.
As far as the rooms are concerned... We lucked out and got a Bay View room with a balcony and a nice view where we could see some of the bay and the boats. The interiors were nice and spacious -- there was a little nook where we could work on the computer and not be in the way of the main part of the room. The only two things that were inconveniences on the property during our stay was the toilet and television. The toilet flush was very weak and was frustrating to get to work. And there was some issue with Time Warner Cable so the channels were somewhat limited. Instead of watching tv, we checked out some DVDs from the front desk (they have a pretty large collection!) But in the grand scheme, these two did not take away from our loving our stay. All in all, I think you will be hard pressed to find a hotel with the combination of location, value, and charm.
