In 2014, a $22 multimillion renovation introduced a beachy chic vibe throughout this 11-acre property at the tip of Shelter Island. New or refreshed amenities include Vessel, the waterfront restaurant; a new pool with furnished cabanas and tiki bars; state-of-the-art fitness facilities; and a full-service spa. A private beach by the marina is perfect for reading and sunbathing on the sand. Rooms are well appointed, if a bit small, and most have balconies with views of either the adjacent marina or San Diego Bay. The attractive hotel is popular for business meetings.
