    Nothing. There was no breakfast. We couldn't even get coffee unless we went to the restaurant.

    We had to walk down a flight of stairs and go around the corner to get to our elevator. We were put in the next to the last room even though I made reservations months in advance. The sea lions kept us awake all night, I booked two rooms and when we checked in, they would not let us pay separately. The hair dryer was useless. We wanted to use the rooftop hot tubs but were not allowed to because we did not use the spa (we did not have time to use the spa, we were just passing through). I thought we were going to have a balcony, but did not. When we checked out, they did not even asked how our stay was. The bell staff and the staff in Schooners were very good, but the staff on the front desk was not.

    The location is the best part.

    I asked for an early check in and did not get it, I asked for top floor and did not get it either. the check in girl took our number and said she would call us when our room was ready. she just went home and left us hanging. we did finely get a room on the third floor. it didn't start well, but ended ok.

    Location - right in the bay!

    We were lead to believe from the photos that there was a fantastic hot tub and chill out area overlooking the bay. Don’t be fooled - this is the spa and is not included with the room fee. There is free access to a sad little internal courtyard with a few sun loungers and a hot tub but it was pretty depressing.

    One of the highlights is the food in the restaurant, which is AMAZING. We had a fantastic dinner one night and two excellent breakfasts. I really like the fact that their breakfast is all a la carte, rather than a tacky, overpriced buffet, like many hotels do. Also, their crab cakes are to die for. One small thing, which I really appreciated, was the fact that the the gym has yoga mats, which is not very common outside of CA. Yoga is a form of fitness too!

    The only small thing is the sort of confusing layout if you stay, as we did, in the building across the street from reception. If you take the elevated walkway back across to the main hotel, it's almost impossible to find the elevator. I know that we, and at least one other couple I met, preferred just walking across the street, so we could see our surroundings. Fortunately, the weather is generally nice in CA, so it's not a big deal to avoid the walkway.
