We stayed in the garden suites. The kitchen and complementary beverages and snack came in handy. Note to those with a stroller, ask for an accessible room without flights of stairs which can get very old quickly. We valet parked (I did have a coupon for free valet parking for 4 of the nights, it is $22 a night otherwise). The valet was very quick to get our car and was extremely helpful. The pool is very small and only goes to 31/2 ft deep, but was fine with a 1 year old. The location was beautiful...close to shops, restaurants and the ocean. I took a 1 block walk to see the sea lions in the morning and we spent time in the park a few block away in the afternoons. If you have a little one, make sure to bring a sling to make it easier to access the places with steps. Overall, we had a great experience.
