My husband and I just spent a long weekend in celebration of our wedding anniversary at the Casa del Mar and agreed it is one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in. Although we live in San Diego only a short drive from the beach, Casa del Mar's location directly on the beach was truly a plus. The hotel's reception area is appointed beautifully and the staff welcoming immediately upon our arrival. The decor and comfort of our room was light and airy (Rm. 618 on the 4th floor just above the pool area with a view directly out to the ocean and sunset) with many personal touches. With the windows open, we enjoyed hearing the surf as we were nodding off (we were lucky to have warm temperatures & sunshine for our stay) -- windows closed, the room was very quiet. The jetted tub was relaxing after a day out riding bikes and shopping along Abbot Kinney Blvd. and the 3rd Street Promenade nearby. We enjoyed live music Saturday night in the lounge while having dinner. Speaking of dinner, the food at Catch is excellent. Sunday brunch was delicious as well and portions generous. The seating area of the lounge is quite comfortable, so we enjoyed a happy hour drink while watching a bit of playoff football on TV (no sound to disturb others). We've both agreed we will make a point to return to Casa del Mar for another weekend soon -- it's a very special place!
