Crystal Pier Hotel
San Diego
Everybody loves a place near the ocean: The Crystal Pier Hotel offers 23 cottages (and five traditional hotel rooms), 10 of which are so far over the ocean that if you accidentally flop out of your bedroom window, you'll be dropping through the air and then chug-a-lugging seawater faster than you can yell, "Hey, surfers! Quit laughing at ... !" No kidding, this place offers an experience so quintessentially Californian you'd think Flipper's about to pop by for a cold one. The Cape Cod-style cottages (small, blue and white, flowering window-boxes, quaint shutters) are built on a wooden pier that juts out over the ocean: half of them are directly over the surf, while the rest float atop Pacific Beach's fine, white sand beach. Gorgeous. There's nothing in this world like having Neptune rock you to sleep. Caution: There are some units on land. If you want the pier cottages, ask specifically for them.

More About San Diego

Known as "Americas Finest City", elegant and sunny San Diego is truly a city with something for everyone. In town, a whole day or more could be spent in Balboa Park, playing golf, touring the world-famous San Diego Zoo or visiting a museum. Just outside of town, Torrey Pines State Reserve offers a somewhat wilder terrain where visitors can view rare birds and the stately trees the park is named for. Children, and in turn parents, will be delighted with the city's wide range of family-oriented activities. From SeaWorld to the historic Gaslamp Quarter, there are events and exhibits to keep even the most hard-to-please happy. San Diego boasts an array of fine and trendy restaurants covering a melting pot of cuisines, world-class shopping and hotels from lavish to budget. San Diego is the eighth largest city in the United Sates and the second largest city in California. Relatively free from smog and byzantine freeways, San Diego, set around a gracefully curving bay, represents the acceptable face of southern California.  Although it was the site of the first mission in California, the city only really took off with the arrival of the Santa Fe Railroad in the 1880s, and in terms of trade and significance it has long been in the shadow of Los Angeles. However, during World War II the US Navy made San Diego its Pacific Command Center, and the military continues to dominate the local economy, along with tourism and the Biotech Industry. San Diego is also home to one of the 2009 top ten beaches in the US. Coronado beach has just moved up from the number 8 position to number 4. You can enjoy the 100 year old Hotel Del Coronado visited by Kings, Presidents and movie stars behind you while taking in the ships and sail boats in front of scenic Point Loma.
