Great Hotel in Coastal Town

Reviewed on: 15 Jul 2019

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Californian for a July 4th/babymoon getaway. The hotel staff were incredibly attuned to our particular stay, making sure we had anything we needed, helping at any point we asked, and generally making our stay very pleasant. Rooms were modern and constantly cleaned. Location is unbeatable. Great hotel!
