Labor Day weekend I am surprising my husband with a trip to the Reagan Library. We will only be there Fri - Mon so a very short weekend. What suggestions do you have for the best hotels (best experience) and even restaurants. I want this to be romantic as well.
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions!
I would suggest the Warner Center Marriott as opposed to the Courtyard in Simi Valley especially if you have status and get free breakfasts. The Reagan Library is a great experience and will take longer then you expect. Being able to go on Air Force One is a real treat.
A suggestion is to take a boat to the Channel Islands for part of one day while you are there. I have done this more than once and always see dolphins on the way. If you decide to add this, and are not elite with Marriott, the Courtyard in Thousand Oaks is a good choice.
I always enjoy eating on the coast but don't have restaurant names for you. There were several in the marina where the boats leave from and many more in the area. Even if you don't want to take the boat, the Channel Islands National Park Visitor center has some really nice displays if you will be in the area.
Another hotel that you might want to consider is the Ventura Marriott which is 1 block from the water. I stayed there several times and was treated well. It may cost more points.
