    It's only $40 to get a day pass to the spa facilities which grants you access to a sauna, steam room, cold water plunge pool, hot tub, and a semi-private saltwater spa pool.

    Awesome 'get-away' spot for Angelenos. F&B on property good and not overly over-priced. Take a date for a day-trip or stay the night if you're ballin'. Enjoy.

    The Vanderlip Suite faces Catalina Island and has a telescope to view passing dolphins and whales. Want to get closer? Cruisve above a nearby kelp forest on a 14-foot, stand-up paddleboard.
