The Murieta Inn and Spa – more than three years in the building – will open to the public Feb. 1. In this video, owner Carol Anderson Ward shows you around and answers questions about the restaurant, spa and other facilities and why the hotel took so long to build. (Ward is the longtime Equestrian Center owner and one of the investors in the North development.) The hotel has 83 rooms and rates of $189 a night and up, depending on season, according to Mary Orlando, general manager.
