Fanstastic! Beautiful Spanish Architecture and Charm. Looks like a castle. Wonderful service without the "attitude" in most upscale hotels.

This is a great weekend getaway for those who desire luxury, affordibility, and relaxation. Unfortunately, there is not much to do outside the hotel (in my opinion). As a city girl, Riverside is not my idea of an interesting city, but the hotel is in a class of its own.
