Up before 7 AM to prep for a presentation that never happened, this One Busy Bee stopped working for the day job at 10:15 PM. Arriving at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton at Half Moon Bay, California, at 4:30 PM, I happily plopped on the bed with a view of the Pacific Ocean. I then placed a couch pillow on top of my legs and topped it off with my laptop. How appropriate, right? I worked for five hours, not leaving this inviting and relaxing hotel room. I didn’t leave for dinner or that glass of Malbec I remember having the last time I was here. I was not going to be distracted trying to make new friends with the many people here for a conference. I was focused.
I was a guest at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay last year for the same conference. My roommate’s company sets her up with a room and I get to crash it. The stay was so memorable that the property is the main reason I will fight for my Marriott points. I want to move in. Or, at least, I want to stay here for free. Not a bad deal, right?
The views are incredible. The property is right on the cliff and you can hear the waves coming in. The rooms are luxurious, the food is delicious, the spa is fantastic and the customer service is top notch. It is a dream to work on my own business with a view of the ocean and the crashing waves as the work day’s soundtrack on repeat. I am happy here.
In the right environment, I am focused, calm and ready to work. Today has been a great day and I have no complaints.
