Fodor's Review

Whimsy abounds at this stylized seaside escape—just look at the porcelain dogs as lamp bases and Spode china plates mounted on the walls—yet the compact rooms, which all have French balconies, and sexy mirrored walls draw quite the upscale clientele. The mostly marble bathrooms have seated vanities and supremely refreshing aromatherapy products. Glamorous socializing takes place in the pool and cabana area amid all-white armchairs and divans. People-watch at the green-hue

bar and lobby lounge during awards season and you'll likely catch a slew of celebs air kissing in the lively bar. The hotel's attractive restaurant, Whist, presents market-fresh Cal-Med cuisine. Upper-floor, ocean-view rooms are brilliant at sunset.
