Overview

Grand whitewashed waterfront hotel with a serene day spa, located between Half Moon Bay Harbor and the Montara Mountains

The Lowdown

Dominating the picturesque shoreline of Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, this stately whitewashed hotel offers spacious rooms with fireplaces and private balconies, all the better to appreciate the gorgeous coastal sunsets. Décor is streamlined and tasteful, with subtle maritime touches like model ships and framed shell prints, and bathrooms feature luxe touches like deep soaking tubs. Elsewhere, the full-service spa is a highlight: indulge in hot stone massage, reiki or a therapeutic bath in one of the deep copper tubs.

In the Area

The Shops at Harbor Village, a collection of boutiques and cafes beneath a greenhouse-style roof, are within strolling distance from the hotel. Half Moon Bay Golf Links, a short drive away, has a striking cliffside setting overlooking the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean and a convivial pub-style restaurant called Mullins Bar & Grill. Get an even better perspective on Northern California’s ruggedly awe-inspiring coastline with a tour to the Point Montara Lighthouse, a historic landmark established in 1875.

Only 1 night but really impressed
DanFreemanPhoto

Even though we were only staying here for one night, and arrived late due to a farcical entry process at SFO - we still very much enjoyed our time here.
Our room was great, and we made the most of the living room area too.
The location is great, with many shops and restaurants a stone's throw from the hotel itself.
We'd happily stay again for longer next time.

Beautiful location

Our room was fantastic! Very spacious and real clean. All the rooms have balcony’s over looking the ocean. It is really neat at night. The room also had a fireplace. Great for just relaxing and drinking some champagne.

Excellent

Very romantic, so close to the water, the only thing I would say is a down side would be that the night life dies really early. but the Hotel itself was Perfect, I will book here again. pricing is on the high side but for location and what you get I do believe it's worth it.
