Since the late 19th century this hotel has been the incarnation of the west coast lifestyle, a millionaire's playground and celebrity hideaway. The hotel's garden is a walkway through the private bungalows. It is lavished with flowers, exotic trees and tropical ferns. A now-enormous fig tree planted by an unknown sailor graces the lobby and is the focal point around which the hotel was built. Hotel guests may wish to dine on the terrace overlooking the famous pool, the rippling waterfalls or lavish gardens and exquisitely-manicured grounds. The hotel also offers a bar on site.
Check-in time is 3 pm. Check-out time is 12 pm.
