I stayed only one night on my way home from visiting a friend in LA on business. I love the La Jolla/Del Mar area and had an extra night so I thought I would make my way down the coast.
I booked on a site that looks at multiple hotels so I only made my decision based on the area and the star rating. Wow, did I get lucky that this was the hotel I ended up at!
The room was beautiful and CLEAN, and the entire grounds were well maintained. Since it was my last night I wanted to just relax so I made my way to the hotel restaurant first for dinner then the bar for drinks. First, the restaurant... The pasta was fantastic, the atmosphere was very calm and relaxing, and the service was wonderful. Joel was my server and was an absolute sweetheart. It can be a little odd dining alone while surrounded by groups and couples but he made me feel right at home.
The bar was another great experience. There, I met Afton who made sure I enjoyed myself the entire time.When I travel someplace I want to know the true experience, not the experience provided by the tourism in the area. Both Joel and Afton were full of information about local attractions. I also love to meet and talk to new people and never once did I feel like they were annoyed at my questions and were more than willing to chat when time allowed. I must also mention the lovely musical entertainment by Elliot. Not overwhelming for those who want to have a conversation with someone near then but still perfect to listen to while enjoying a glass of wine.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a personal experience, especially if traveling alone.
