Boho, beachy high-rise hotel with friendly staff and rooftop farm-to-table restaurant with Pacific views
There’s a beachy, Midcentury sophistication to the lobby. Bask in front of the large stone fireplace on a ’70s retro half-moon leather couch next to wood slab and curvaceous golden tables. Vintage black-and-white surf photos decorate the outdoor halls, and all rooms face west. The Kimpton Group’s ubiquitous outdoor patio/lounge/bar/pool and firepits provide a romantic atmosphere; go for housemade potato chips, a signature cocktail and local tips from the bartender.
Bed and Bath
Calm prevails in taupe rooms and bathrooms with a view; low-rise platform beds evoke an Asian feeling, and the mattresses are fitted with soft Frette linens. Other perks include plenty of desk and drawer space, 42-inch plasma TVs and a small outside patio with table and chairs. Bathrooms are tiny but sleek, with two-sided glass showers and amenities from C.O. Bigelow in support of the nonprofit Dress for Success.
The California lifestyle demands that one stay in shape, so grab a Hula Hoop from the lobby or a free bicycle; pump iron in the fitness center, or walk (or run) along the nearby beach and pier. Indulge in an in-room spa treatment to soothe your muscles. The 11th-floor Cusp restaurant has a menu of delights that includes roasted quinoa and yellowtail ceviche, tangy Caesar salad, perfectly prepared fish entrees and housemade gelatos and sorbets.
