We were using Hotwire to find hotel rooms for us during our road trip down Highway 101 and found this place via a blind booking at a great rate. The hotel is fantastic with just enough old world charm mingled with up to date luxury - the ride in the orignal 1920's lift (elevator) was worth popping in for alone!. We both agreed it was our favourite hotel of our 3 week trip and we stayed in plenty.
The hotel is situated well for the beach, shops and highway. The pool area is lovely as is the spa. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the beds are very very comfortable. Nice bit of history with the Charlie Chaplin connection which plays through the hotel as a theme.
24 hour tea, coffee and fruit made the stay very comforatable and the free post cards on the lobby desk were a nice touch. The staff were very helpful and polite.
