The Hotel Cheval in Downtown Paso Robles, California, a
Two and a Half Year Effort for Proprietors
Robert and Sherry Gilson

Paso Robles, CA (March 2007) - Paso Robles welcomes a new downtown luxury property with the opening of Hotel Cheval in April 2007. Influenced by the surrounding countryside and situated in America's new prized food and wine region, Hotel Cheval will offer well-traveled guests an experience unlike any other in the Central Coast area featuring old-world hospitality and exceptional personalized service amidst thoughtfully designed and refined accommodations. 

Proprietors Robert and Sherry Gilson spent two and a half years refining the concept and location of Hotel Cheval. With a passion for good design, more than 20 years of experience in real estate and an interest in the hospitality industry, the Gilson's were inspired to open their first hotel in downtown Paso Robles. Robert's background in business finance coupled with Sherry's talent for style and design makes these new hoteliers a dynamic husband and wife team. From the original blueprint, to the decor and selection of the amenities, they have immersed themselves in its development to create a memorable destination for their guests. 

"We are inspired by the many properties we have visited and are drawn to the romanticism of hotels. The idea of giving guests a surprising and delightful experience is very exciting and fulfilling, especially in this new American wine country." says Robert Gilson.

Each of the property's 16 rooms is thoughtfully and individually composed with a classic and stylish flair featuring a hint of contemporary design. Cozy windows seats, fireplaces, outdoor patios, fountains and European artifacts are complimented by original artwork by Richard Tullis. Additional amenities include complimentary continental breakfast, flat screen televisions, complimentary Ethernet and wireless internet connections, DVD players, luxury linens and bathroom amenities by Temple Spa. 

In keeping with an equestrian theme - cheval is French for horse - the rooms are named after famous racehorses throughout history. Guests can unwind in front of the fireplaces in the courtyard, curl up with a book in the library or have an early evening glass of wine in the Pony Club - the Parisian inspired horseshoe shaped zinc bar. For a unique and unparalleled experience, guests can enjoy complimentary carriage rides to dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings with Chester, Hotel Cheval's Belgian draft horse. 

Hotel Cheval is a stylish and sophisticated 16 room luxury Inn located in the superior downtown location of Paso Robles. For more information on Hotel Cheval, please visit .
