    First off, it is an expensive place. But the food was delicious (salmon and steak) and servers were very kind and fast. The hotel itself is also very nice, overall, worth it!

    An airy blue-and-cream–colored lounge. Floor-to-ceiling windows. The sight of lush, lawn-covered cliffs overlooking the sparkling ocean. Now, this is what Bay Area living is all about.
