“This is a very colorful, unique hotel with a very funky Japanese restaurant that feels like a Shanghai opium den. The rooms are beautiful and romantic. Lots of antiques everywhere, great photography and generally all around wonderful service. Right across the street from a great, bright and spacious restaurant called Old Man to have lunch at with a young and gorgeous surfer crowd.
The lobby is huge and dramatic, they have dance performances on certain nights that are beautiful and entirely non- cheesy. Can’t recommend enough. You feel like you are in a movie. Jenny, the manager, is a delight and super helpful. We had friends come and visit from an hour away and they said it was worth the trip just to see the hotel.
Stayed March 2017, traveled with friends”
