    Amazing central Cali sunset views

    Beautiful room with amazing view of sunset from balcony. Part of California coastal trip, so only an overnight stay. Wished we could have stayed here much longer. Will remember this stay as COVID 19 blew up in USA on our visit. It is a moment that I will never forget as it was also on my birthday! View from Pacific Edge and Sunset Room are amazing as well. Had dinner and breakfast there. Best breakfast we had on our Cali trip. Hope I can return to enjoy this hotel in the future.
