Fodor's Review

Sharing the same frontage as the private Balboa Bay Club that once hosted Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and the Reagans, this watefront resort has one of the best bay views around. A+O is the resort's lively gastropub that opens to sea breezes, part of a renovation that gave the lobby a fresh, contemporary look and added a coffee bar. The more formal restaurant and bar, Waterline, retains a classic nautical vibe. The spacious rooms, some with bay or courtyard views, have a beachy decor of rattan furniture, plantation shutters, and tropical-pattern drapes. Rent an electric boat or stand-up paddleboard from the resort's private marina.
