Very nice rooms; helpful staff. Great bathroom with shower and soaking tub. Balcony overlooking the harbor; not a true "ocean view" as advertised. Good restaurants within walking distance. Pricey but enjoyable.
After being unable to get in to The Ritz @ Half Moon Bay, it was suggested by the Ritz that this was close by and "next best alternative". It does not come even close to comparing to The Ritz, as it does not sit on water (seperated by road and a parking lot); not to mention my wife did not sleep and was a bear the next day! We wondered why there was a noise machine and ear plugs next to the bed. We found out why, besides a large school of frogs that have a fairly loud "snore" thru the night. Their is a fog-horn from the lighthouse that goes off about every 10 seconds! Unless you are a very deep sleeper, I would suggest you find another place to stay. We checked out at 6am, as my wife coul dnot handle the noise any longer.
I booked this hotel using a TravelZoo voucher and couldn't be happier. I had never stayed here before but I will in the future. The room was large, big bathroom, a sitting area with a fireplace and a large balcony. Included with the voucher was a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. The furnishings were beautiful. There was a restaurant at the hotel but we did not use it. The king bed was comfortable and you could not hear anyone else in the next room. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. I can't wait to return to this hotel. There is a spa at the hotel but we did not use it.
Very nice hotel. The receptionist was very helpful. She gave great suggestions for dinner and what to see in the area. This was our first visit will definitely come back. I was celebrating my birthday. The rooms very nice and bed very comfortable. The bar very nice as well. The only thing I didn't like was the shutter blinds for the bathroom. Would like more privacy while using bathroom. I highly recommend the hotel.
There are several good aspects about this hotel, but may others which do let it down.
The room was a good size with a balcony facing the bay and a nice seating and coffee table area.
The gym was a good size and quite well equipped but no windows so little/no natural light or fresh air.
The service as mentioned previously was pretty patchy, friendly enough but clearly young kids/student with no professional training.
The food was not particularly impressive.
Stayed here because of a wedding. Very spacious and attractive room with separate sitting area,wet bar, table, refrig, and large porch with chairs and a great view of the harbor. The rate was very reasonable for this. The staff and service was quick...not sure what wasgoing on when others had complaints, but we had nothing but a good experience that I would recommend to anyone.
