Phoenix, AZ - March 2013

Warren greeted us with a big smile and friend "Hello". We felt ourselves unwind right then, after the long drive to the coast. He gave us a tour and we loved it all. The location is a few minutes from the beach, fewer minutes to the harbor, a short walk to good (and great) restaurants, shopping, and the pier. We never drove our car the entire four days. Just walked everywhere. The room was decorated in a sunny beach style, which was great. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and neat. The pillows were a bit odd. Small, square pillows which I found difficult to sleep with. Will just bring my pillow from home next time. But that is a small issue compared with all of the nice amenities this lovely hotel offers. Breakfast with a good variety of foods, and a little dining room to eat in. We took our breakfast to the rooftop terrace and enjoyed seeing the ocean from one side and the harbor from the other. Beautiful! We borrowed two movies from their great DVD library and watched them in our room. Cookie time, late afternoon daily was a delight. We made sure to be there to get one every day. They have boogie boards, beach towels, and other beach items to loan. Laundry facility on site. Parking is tight, but they will feed the meter for you if you have to park in the big public lot next to the hotel, so what could be easier? Lovely place, charming staff. Will definitely stay here again...and again.
