I went to check out the La Playa Hotel in Carmel, CA for a possible wedding venue. The lady, Pam, was nice enough I guess but the reception room she showed me had a very 'conference' room feel. There were pictures on the wall and standard plants in the corners. I asked if we could remove the pictures. She said 'No'. I asked if we could remove the plants. She said 'No'. Not even a 'Sorry, we cant do this for you'. Not very accomodating at all.
