The 52 rooms are large and tasteful, the public spaces ― the ground-floor lobby, a second-floor terrace ― glamorous. Dining options range from homey Carlton Bakery and Café ($) to the Carlton Restaurant & Grill ($$$), with an exhibition kitchen and sushi bar, to the more formal DiVine ($$$). And the lounge and wine bar offers a good selection of the San Luis Obispo vintages that lured you here in the first place.
