Rooms at The Lodge at Torrey Pines take their cues from the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s 1900s-inspired California Craftsman architecture. Inside the wood-filled room, you’ll find Tiffany stained-glass table and floor lamps, an oversized burnt sienna Craftsman leather chair with a matching ottoman and a nice-sized writing desk with chair. The beautiful Stickley-style woodwork is a standout; the wooden bed frame and headboard are made without a single nail. Cuddle up to the green-tiled gas fireplace (my favorite room feature — you can turn it on with the flip of a switch) or crawl under the light sage quilted duvet with a reddish-pink floral-like print. If you’re lucky enough to snag a room in the San Diego hotel with a balcony, the red-tiled terrace comes with wicker chairs and a marble-topped table. The balconies either overlook a central courtyard filled with plants and flowers or the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific beyond it. The Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired rooms are the antidote to cookie-cutter hotel accommodations.
