How it Ranks: Terranea Resort ranks #7 out of 958 Los Angeles Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: About 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, Terranea Resort is a palatial resort in the city's backyard. Many rooms look out onto the Pacific from private balconies and come equipped with a long list of luxury amenities, including LCD flat-screen TVs, four-fixture stone bathrooms and iPod docking stations. But most guests appreciate what's outside their quarters, particularly the fitness center and multiple pools. The hotel also houses a noteworthy spa, and visitors are in awe of the expansive, manicured grounds all 102 acres. This family- and pet-friendly resort (managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts) has eight delectable eateries and watering holes; of those, Catalina Kitchen is the true standout with its breakfast and patio setting.
