Description
Inspired by the unexpected beauty found in life's everyday experiences and interactions, LiA Hotel is a breath of fresh air for travelers who seek to infuse their lives with art. An acronym for Life is Art, LiA More Hotel takes its mission seriously, featuring original photography of San Carlos as well as canvases for guests to use (coming soon!) and in-room Buddha boards for bursts of unbridled creativity. A handful of LiA guest rooms are creatively equipped Inspiration Spaces, where bright ideas bubble up as if by magic. Add comforts like complimentary continental breakfast and free coffee round-the-clock and it's easy to see why LiA Hotel is San Carlos' favorite new hotel. Less
