Lucky for us, the metro system, BART, was quite easy to navigate (except for actually buying the ticket that is) and we arrived at our hotel pretty quickly. Walking into the hotel only made the day better, as it was beautiful inside (see review). It was just a few pillowed seating areas short of a Moroccan dream. We were more than pleasantly surprised at the what a great value we got with our package, as we weren't expecting such luxury. The beds were another great example of that luxury, and having started our day at 5:00am coupled with the time change, we decided to indulge a bit.
After a short nap and reading of visitor's guides, we discovered our hotels Wine Hour. Basically, from 5:00- 6:00pm everyday the hotel offers complimentary beer and wine to its guests. My dad, who can rarely stay in one place too long, decided to socialize. A few minutes later he returned with samples for us of the white wine and about a half hour later returned with a couple bottles he finagled. =)
With these gifts safely tucked in our minifridge, we decided to walk the few blocks to Chinatown, the one thing I think my dad was really looking forward to. Unfortunately, we didn't actually get to experience much of Chinatown, as the seductive glow of "Cheap Electronics!" stores lured my father in. I was in the mood for a little knock-off purse lovin', so my mom and I did walk up and down a bit, but I was disappointed in the selection.
After all that, we decided to call it a night and headed back to the Serrano.
