I can't say enough good things about the Spindrift. This boutique hotel is set right on Cannery Row, and above the beach. Spend the extra money for an oceanside room and sleep to the sound of the waves crashing below.
We were welcomed immediately by Patrick, the valet/bellman, and he was incredibly friendly and accommodating. (Valet costs the same as self-parking, so might as well go for that if you're going to spend the $20.) Our room was gorgeous: roomy, bay window with nothing but water in front of us, gas fireplace (that burns cedar wood, which they provide), cozy antique-ish furniture, huge bathroom and a comfortable bed.
We spent a lot of time in the room, and I wish we'd been there at least 2 nights! Wonderful home away from home.
Other perks: free wine and cheese from 4-6 and free room service breakfast (pastries, cereal, fruit, etc.) and great location, right on Cannery Row.
We had a wonderful time. If the opportunity presents itself again, we'll spend a few days there!
