    The photos are highly missleading. Parking at $29 per evening was 'a surprise'. Not even a sea view.I will not reccomend this experiance to any of my collegues. Cetianly there is limited 'value for money' here.

    Nice hotel which is close to PIMCO and Pacific Life Insurance

    Very relaxing, wonderful food and brilliant staff. Did not use Spa. Pool was good.

    We had to move rooms as there was building work on that side of the hotel. Very surprised that they even put guests in such rooms as work started as early as 5am and we did not sleep after that time.

    It is a very posh hotel and one can tell immediately that it takes money to stay there. It is a great status symbol. The spa was great, but we could have accessed those services without staying there. The coffee wasn't even good and there wwas no complimentary anything.

    It was not as close to the beach as we were led to believe by the maps and description. We were dollared to death. Tips for everything, everything is extra. In this day and age charging $12.95 per day for Wi-Fi is ridiculous! We spend our final day at the Holiday Inn Express in Costa Mesa and were much happier.

    Great bathroom with lots of room.

    No slippers had to ask for them very noisy but I understand due to building next door, but should warn guests....

    The staff couldn't do enough for you, very cushyand luxorious.

    Cost of computer use, cost of parking.

    Great Staff. Attention to detail

    Loss of basketball /tennis facility

  • Single
    8.8

    Food in dining room was excellent all day. Servers are helpful without being officious. Spa is elegant and clean (staff are a little officious, but it's a pricey spa; you want to be bowed to). Cheapest room was huge, bright, comfortable. Staff very sweet and responsive, w/o being craven.

    Insane charges for internet access, both in business center and in the room. $32/night parking charge (plus tips) in So.Cal., where everyone arrives by car. Insane forced 20% "service charge" for room service, which probably never goes to the staff, plus a $4.50 surcharge--what is that? All this should be baked into the room price, and not hidden. No newstand.

    Construction across the street is a bit distracting while laying by the pool
