The medium-sized lobby features antiques, colorful 1920s Spanish tile work, and a hand-painted ceiling.
The Mediterranean-style resort is made up of a 4-story and an 11-story building with beautiful scapes of sea, mountainside and village.
Each of the guestrooms has its own individual style and character. Designed with a European flair, there is a suggestion of the old with the conveniences of the new. Rooms and suites may overlook the bustling village, the luscious gardens or the blue Pacific. All lodging accommodations have windows that open, allowing rooms to fill with the scent of blooming flowers and the crisp ocean air.
The hotel offers three of the best San Diego restaurants on site, each with its own unique ambiance. The romantic Sky Room transports one back to an era of fine service and distinctive French cuisine and features only 12 booths and tables, each with a 180-degree view of the Pacific. The Whaling Bar and Grill is open for lunch and dinner daily, with many dishes prepared tableside. The Mediterranean Room and Tropical Patio, with its charming Spanish flair, is the all-meal restaurant of the hotel offering guests light, flavorful cuisine and an option for indoor or outdoor dining.
