The Empress came to me by chance through a new trendy travel app on the iPad, and thankfully made my California work trip a little easier and more pleasant on the restricted travel budget that I currently find myself on (start-ups are, well, cheap).
But this gem was perfect and a great value. I would put it a notch above a nice Courtyard by Marriott. It has more charm and taste with all the same business amenities and a much better restaurant. The rooms are large and comfortable and the location is great. I was able to get quickly to the beach/ocean, to restaurants (awesome), and coffee (local & delish).
I will definitely return.
