David Weyrich—a winemaker who also owns Paso Robles’ posh, 8-room Villa Toscana inn—has taken the 1929 Carlton Hotel and turned it into a first-class retreat: one of the nicest hotels between the Bay Area and Santa Barbara. The 52 rooms are large and tasteful, the public spaces—the ground-floor lobby, a second-floor terrace—glamorous. The lounge and wine bar offers a good selection of the San Luis Obispo vintages that lured you here in the first place.
