I am reserving one star because I have not yet experience any stays in this Hotel. I cannot lie to other viewers of this review for something that I have never experience myself. So, what are the full color stars I am giving for? They represent the harmonious atmosphere, the unique design of the architect, the traditions that being kept, and the cleanness. As being a tourist of SD, I was brought to see its rare view once at a very night while sitting in the car, but I was attracted in the dark by the huge cupolas which were made into ½ open umbrella shape. Then I knew I will visit her again later. A few months ago, I had a cup of warm coffee in the car while driving on the way home from Coronado in an evening. I decided to have my coffee somewhere in there. The sunset shade projected the cascade leaves' shadow on the ground like the celebrity’s red carpet led me a way to the front door of the hotel. The passion red roofs soon cascaded into my eyes and seemed very inviting. The mix of darker interior colors sedated the tiring travelers. The elevator in the corner of the lobby was the beauty of the antique and there was an assistant in there to operate it. I found a comfort spot right next to the imperial like design open bar sip my almost not warmed coffee when I enjoyed listening to the pianist play his songs and watched people dance in the dancing pound. I continuous ignored my tongue’s signal of needing hot coffee, I signaled back with a message to the tongue: they are just from starbucks.
