5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful property. Excellent staff. $50 per day parking was steep.

Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2019

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Property needs a coat of paint. Doors, elevators, windows worn. It's also becoming a business-driven hotel. Upon arrival we found the entire lobby was being used for a DJ event for a corporate customer. Bar "closed for private event", and impossible to hear front desk person over the music. Great hotel for a meeting, not so great for a quiet getaway. Several other local 5-star properties (Dana Point Point, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach) are now better
