Victorian ambiance meets California mall mania.. The Scene This family owned-and-operated, European-style boutique hotel has always displayed a quaint quality that its guests describe as charming, although finding a Victorian English setting practically across the street from a sprawling modern shopping center in a Southern California beach community can be a little disorienting ... and typical. It's just one more example of how the fusion of old and new, traditional and nouveau, has been embraced in the Southland.
The Details Specials such as the Romance Package, which includes dinner and Champagne, as well as banquet rooms and gardens for weddings, are what the hotel is known for--a retreat within the city for those who adore the inn's fussy style. Rooms are furnished with authentic bronze, oak and carved marble antiques. The dark Victorian dining room serves continental cuisine, as well as afternoon tea, presented by servers in period costumes. Although the atmosphere is definitely old-fashioned, this small hotel provides all the modern conveniences to make your stay comfortable.
