Carlton Plaza of San Leandro was absolutely lovely. It was everything my father would have loved. It was a lovely setting, and he absolutely adored it. They had a wonderful restaurant. The people were gracious. When you walked in, they all greeted you as if you were family. They reminded me of a five-star hotel, but with a family twist. The dining area had also like a little cafe where you could all daylong have popcorn, cookies, fruits, coffee, cocoa, and all that.
They had tons of activities. I would say they had 20 boards of activities that everybody could do on a daily basis. They had a lovely garden area. Oh my God, the garden area was so pretty! It not only had places to lay out, but if you wanted to sit on a lounger, you could sit and chat. It had a little area for golf. The rooms were beautiful. They were well appointed and wonderful rooms. They were very well set up, and the way it was set up, everybody looked down on the garden area. They also had a bubbly dining area if you wanted to have a private party, and it had a separate kitchen. They had two areas to watch, whether it was TV or movies, and my father loved the food.
