Ocean views, contemporary design and great amenities at a family-friendly hotel in Carlsbad.
Carlsbad is a wonderful North County playground with its lovely beaches and attractions like Legoland and the flower fields. This Mediterranean-style hotel, set on twelve acres high on the hill, offers great ocean views, an inviting California casual ambience and friendly service for both leisure and business travelers. The spacious well-designed rooms have all the right comforts, while the Villa Suites have full kitchens and media centers for longer family or business stays. Grownups appreciate the adult-only Olympic-sized pool, while families love the water park and kid pool for aquatic fun. Small fry can also play video games or do crafts in the activities center. The on-site restaurant, Karl Strauss Brewery, is a great place for craft beers and casual good eats. Golfers will be pleased with the nearby The Crossings course. Legoland is a stone's throw away, as is the Carlsbad Flower Fields for tractor tours and more family fun. While there is a state-of-the-art workout facility and massages available, anyone wanting a full day spa experience can head to Ocean Pearl Spa at nearby sister resort, The Sheraton Carlsbad. The Grand Pacific Palisades also has more than 10,000 square feet of modern meeting space with great outdoor venues with ocean views, as well.
