Not only was the outdoor scenery a breathtaking relief from the Midwest, the resort and the Alexander Hotel topped everything off. The decor gave me a comforting feel of home; only better. I enjoyed the ocean view and rested well. I also was able to stay on my exercise regimen, as I used their state of the art fitness center. Actually, I was able to take a few business video conferences without feeling embarrassed by the surroundings, and without having to leave my room; like traditional hotels.
