I opened my door on Sunday morning, and there was a child standing there.
"Are you anyone important?" the child asked.
"So . . . why should I tell you that?" I replied.
"Because my parents told me if we stayed here, we would see celebrities."
Trust me, celebrities wouldn't stay here -- but business people do. And you get used to people staring at of you for no apparent reason at this hotel.
Other than that it's a nice place.
If I had to mention anything negative, it would be the horrid parking situation. The property is adjacent to Monterey Peninsula College and cannot expand it's parking lots. But as I found out, on weekends when all the rooms are filled by tourists, you might wind up in the hotel's remote overflow parking lot.
Not exactly business-friendly, but what are you going to do? Not a bad place, but definitely one of the more exotic properties I've visited in my life.
