DAY 1 - Yesterday, Valerie visited Terranea Resort for the PROST Luncheon...and decided I should join her for an overnight.
So, this afternoon, we check into a room.
We actually have an ocean view room! The bed is nice, but not as comfy as our Ritz-Carlton bed. =)
This box contains the hotel directory and guide to services
Looking from the desk back towards the bathroom and entrance foyer
I am happy to report that not only is this an HDTV, but, unlike those at some hotels, one that allows guests to adjust the aspect ratio
Mandatory bathroom shots. Bathtub
Single basin sink on the vanity
Seashell encrusted light fixtures
I step outside on to the balcony and see that the resort will be hosting a wedding ceremony just west of our room. The marine layer, which has not been present over our home, looks pretty thick down here...
...but appears to be burning off
Looking down the hall from outside our room
The door outside leads to...
...stairs down to the Resort Pool
View from halfway down the stairs
The hotel's porte-cochère
It is nice to see that people who come to visit this hotel have truly good taste
I am curious to see where the valet will park this fine automobile
In general, I hate valets. That said, I approve of this one's judgment
Fountain at the center of the porte-cochère
Looks like this will be the staging area before a wedding reception
Succulents...native plants are featured throughout the resort
