Things to do in CaliforniaEdit This
Who wouod have thought that this hiddden tucked away huge block of hotel was in Riverside? I had been there to the mall and shops over many years span without an inkling of what lay inside for my pleasure, and total delight
The hotel has a three star rating at this time but truthfully I do believe it will be up to the fives within a year or two. The service is the absolute best I have encountered, the rooms are the cleanest and best kept I have seen, The food is plentiful. What makes this hotel stnad out is it's corners and cornaces, it's ballasdads, spires, hidden staircases, spiral staircases,,huge open courtyards (several) and the absolute feeling that you have stepped into another world. I spend one whole day exploring every stairway and crecvice that was not off limits. Fruit and vegetables are grown for the five great restaruants on the rooftops. Many small courtyards sport water fountains and quiet places of repose and seclusion. Many famous people heve stayed there from movie start to prsesidents.
My room was in the Spainish quarter and looked down on the courtyard restaurant, it was furnished with antique scrolled writing desk, a flat screen tv, an updated bath and all new ammenities,while keeping in style with the old world style that gives this unique hotel it's charm. I had a bedroom, walk in closet, another closet, bathroom and reading room with game table and easy chair. The room had windows that opened as well. Room service was served and concierge and the bell desk helped withh any plans one could have with courtesy and respect as well as promptness.
This set of buildings are an archetechts dream. Clock tower that chimes, and so many little pathways and stairs curving around and it is so huge that you think you havd left the USA. Everyone is very helpful, kind and seem to be quite happy with their positions. There are many flowers and fruit trees growing and herbs appear to be grown there fresh as well.
There is Kellys Spa on the ground floor that offers all sorts of spa services, and he four restuarants area all very good, one being a four star. There are large areas of libraries of the last century style which provide free internet access wirelessly, And for a small fee an ethernet cable is furnished in the room for your private use.
Many writers have come to this lovely hotel to write, and one can totally see how the atmosphere can be quite conducive to thie acivity.
This hotel began in the last century as a four bedroom boarding house and has grown step by sometimes uphill step to get to where it is today, full of history and on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one you just cannot miss.
