Best Rooms: Nice bay views are available from Standard, Deluxe and Premier Bay View rooms. The only difference is that they're located in different buildings, but among these, the Deluxe Bay View is considered to be the best.
Best Rooms: Guests looking for the best views will want to book a Bay View room in the Bay Building (specifically, rooms 252 - 259) or odd-numbered rooms from *01-*37 on floors 2 - 3 (e.g. 203, 315, 229) in the Catalina Building.
Best Rooms: If you're looking for the best view, book an Ocean View room and request to stay on floor 7 or higher.
Best Rooms: For the best city lights view, book a Deluxe King, as they start on floor 7. Premier Kings offer coastal views, but most are limited.
