Sea lions sunning themselves and chatting on the piers of neighboring King Harbor make for all-day entertainment. In the lounge, huge windows with white drapes and white panes frame the Pacific with views of the sunset and sailboats coming home.
Rooms are painted in crisp blues and yellows with white wainscoting, and each features a private patio or balcony. Ocean-view rooms look past the marina to the Pacific. Luxury suites have pedestal tubs and fireplaces. The naturally lit fitness room has cardio equipment and free weights. The adjacent small pool has a gorgeous ocean view.
