Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay
We have been to Half Moon Bay a number of times. In previous occasion, we always struggled to find a good place to stop. The parking is expensive and if after you parked you find the place to be too crowded or not ideal, you are out of luck.
During the Memorial Day weekend, our friend YM took us to the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay. You might think it is going to be expensive to even get in and park at the hotel. However, we were surprise, even on a holiday weekend, we were able to find a parking spot at the parking structure, free of charge. All we have to do is to inform the guard that we wanted a coaster access pass, and she immediate gave us a code for the parking garage. She even suggested to us where else we can park if in case we couldn't find a spot in the parking structure.
Beside the free parking, the beaches in front of the Ritz Carlton is gorgeous. Within a few minutes walk, we came to a stair way that leads us down to the beach.
From high above, we get to enjoy the spectacular view just like all the hotel guests. We couldn't even buy an outdoor meal there but we elected not too.
