Great Location

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Pros: The location, the amenities and wonderful staff.
Cons: For the top price they charged they need to update to do some improvements. The restaurant location is good but food is not so good.
Location: Beach, village and restaurants are walking distance. The hotel has a shuttle to horse racing or anywhere 2 miles didn't take my car out once.
Great place, great location. The staff reception, bell boys are exceptionally helpful and nice. Restaurant food need little help and the rooms need little update for five star resort.

Hotel or Wedding Venue?

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Less weddings and more focus upon hotel guests
Location: Close to plaza, racetrack, beaches and all shops in DelMar
Nice hotel close to all Del Mar facilities but check to see if they are holding a wedding or a special event. We went to this hotel hoping to have a relaxing finish to our holiday. On 2 out of the 3 days that we were there, weddings were held and that resulted in the hotel being very busy and very noisy until late in the evening. It also means that a portion of the hotel is shut off to normal hotel guests. So nice hotel but disappointing experience for anybody not attending weddings.

Luxury hotel, overpriced, small rooms.

Posted Jul 1, 2017
Wonderful location, Beach Access is a bit wierd. You have to cross over railroad tracks to get to it. Staff during day was excellent at night horrible. Valet lost our keys for an hour and at $39/day you expect a refund for thst day.. At $400+ a night not includin taxes and $39/ day resort fee and $39/day parking you expect bigger pool ( tons of families) and larger rooms. When we arrived we upgraded to coastal room. But view of ocean was weak and seen mainly off balcony. Overall high priced and missing some things to make it worth another stay - 3 stars.

Do just about anything else with your money.

Positives: walking distance to beach, village, negatives: room descriptions on hotels.com might be an issue but the room was disappointing for 720$, no tub, horrific coffee in the room, slow wifi, additional 70$ park and hotel fee. Was this worth $800. Not a chance.
