We had help booking a smallish (15 people) dinner reception through Bob Fader and the helpful catering group at La V. The bride and groom also booked 2 nights stay. Drinks before looking at the ocean view. The dinner was in the dining room and done with class and taste. Off-the-menu dishes were all superb, excellent wine, stellar service. The B&G enjoyed gift of wine and goodies in room. Bravo to La V! Thank you.

Great old hotel. Rooms are european small. Bar and restaurant were great. Pool area was nice with its own bar service. Short walk to other great restaurants and the waterfront. Service was excellent throughout.

This hotel is just what a traveler needs when they want a place with some charm and character in the best senses of those words. While standing in the lobby, take a look west out of the window at the end of the lounge: there's a perfectly framed view of the Pacific ocean in a classic Spanish colonial shape. A walk around the landscaped grounds brought more of the same while still somehow invoking a feeling akin to grounds at a nice location in Hawaii. It's wonderful. I believe I had what they call something like a "King classic" room. It is not as spacious as you find in a newer hotel, but I didn't miss anything - there's a comfortable bed, a desk for getting a bit of work done, and your ubiquitous dresser and closet with more than enough room for a stay of a week-ish (or possibly more, depending on your packing style). I'd say my biggest moment of stress while at the hotel was calculating whether it was worth the cost to get the diet Coke in the glass bottle that is on offer in the room. Those aren't easy to find, people! The service was friendly and smooth and I appreciated the Wall Street Journal that was there to greet me first thing in the morning. All in all, I'd recommend this for those who like their cookies when they come in more than the typical shapes. Sure it's not round, but it's still delicious!

This is a wonderful treat ! My daughter took me to this hotel to celebrate my birthday. It was magical. We had a fabulous room 1117 and the view was breathtaking. He dining facilities were excellent. and we enjoyed a few scrumptious meals here. We also listened to the live band and the. Atmosphere was terrific. The pool side was a wonderful place to spend a lazy afternoon sipping on cocktails. Excellent !!!

Just spent a full week at the beautiful 90-year-old Pink Lady. This is by far THE best location on Prospect Street with full access to the cove and beautiful walking paths. Even for an older hotel, the property is stunning. Once inside the lush grounds, we were hard pressed to leave. We had a king room on the 9th floor with an ocean patio view. We did notice the hotel elevator took time and there’s several levels of stairs. Probably a challenge for wheelchair access needs but we loved the exercise. We walked the seaside trails every morning, then retreated to our oasis and the Pink Lady become our home. We snagged breakfast most mornings at The Med; spent wonderful afternoons by the crystal-clear pool and loved just being in the comfy hotel lobby with it’s amazing big picture window and fabulous bar. Absolutely everyone we encountered, from valet, desk staff, housekeeping, and hotel staff were professional, courteous, helpful and just downright fun to be around. Special shout out to Rachel, Kira (aka Madeline), Francisco (aka Kiko), Becca, and big hugs to Rob and Kevin. It wouldn’t have been a great afternoon by the pool without those two! We will definitely be back.
