    Montage Laguna Beach
    Laguna Beach, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1477 reviewsTripAdvisor (1477)
    Free WiFi

    The Montage Laguna Beach epitomizes the relaxed class and beauty for which Southern California is known. The property's location (right along the shore just south of downtown Laguna Beach) is a particularly popular perk among guests. Accommodations at the hotel also include feather-top beds and marble bathrooms, not to mention beautiful turn-of-the-century decor and private terraces or balconies that overlook the ocean. But don't plan on spending too much time in your room. In addition to enjoying the large beach area, you can lounge poolside, shop at the in-house boutiques, receive spa treatments and eat gourmet meals at one of three on-site restaurants. If you happen to be here for date night, recent guests say that the intimate atmosphere and the locally sourced California cuisine at Studio will set the tone for a romantic evening. There are also family programs for children, though previous visitors say that the upscale environment at Montage Laguna Beach is better suited for couples.

    Free WiFi

    With stunning views of the Pacific Ocean from its shorefront perch east of downtown Santa Barbara, the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is consistently lauded by guests for its friendly staff and stunning decor. The Spanish Colonial Revival structure houses 207 spacious guest rooms and suites that feel bright and airy and feature large windows and views of the 22-acre property, and visitors say that the down bedding adds an extra dose of luxury. Recent guests also praised the in-house spa for its extensive list of treatments, but should you desire some rest and relaxation without the additional cost, a day spent by the outdoor pool should do just fine. If you're traveling with kids, let the resort's certified staff provide them with a host of supervised activities while you enjoy a romantic meal at Tydes (if you like seafood) or Bella Vista (if you prefer your Californian cuisine infused with some Italian flair).

This grand dame of hospitality occupies 23 acres at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, boasting spectacular views unaltered by the city's newer high-rises. Though it's been around for more than a century, The Langham Huntington has yet to start showing its age. Guests describe the property as beautiful – with classic 20th-century decor and a rich color palate – and well-maintained. Accommodations here come with four-poster beds, Italian marble bathrooms and French doors, as well as more modern amenities such as iPod docking stations and flat-screen TVs.

    For golf fans, a stay at The Lodge at Pebble Beach – which sits on the 18th hole of the historic Pebble Beach Golf Links – is a dream come true.

There are five exceptional bars and restaurants on-site, as well as multiple shops. Access to the Beach & Tennis Club is also free for guests. Just keep in mind that you must stay at least two nights at the Lodge (or The Inn at Spanish Bay or Casa Palmero) to get a reserved tee time on the course, and you'll have better luck securing a spot if you book your tee time when you reserve your hotel room.

    Little touches such as soy milk for your morning coffee or steel cut oats for your breakfast oatmeal go a long way with recent guests of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. Those travelers also praise the invested and attentive staff and the fresh produce served in the hotel's FIG restaurant. This hotel earns praise for its proximity to the Third Street Promenade of Santa Monica, not to mention its deluxe on-site amenities, which include the exhale Spa, a fitness center (which hosts Mind Body classes) and an outdoor pool. Visitors find that the guest rooms meet their needs, housing flat-screen TVs, internet access (for an additional fee) and Keurig coffee makers. However, previous guests recommend requesting a room facing the pool rather than the ocean, as late-night noise from the nearby Santa Monica Pier can make for a restless night. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels can earn points for choosing to stay here.

    The Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa & Marina offers guests a convenient home base near Mission Beach, just a short drive from downtown. Guest rooms here feature bright green accents, flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet access and ample space to spread out. Previous visitors say that the views from the rooms are great (make sure to ask for accommodations on a higher floor overlooking the water). If you aren't satisfied with the scenery outside your room, you can enjoy the surroundings while dining on coastal cuisine at Red Marlin Restaurant & Terrace  an experience many recent guests recommend. This Hyatt property also boasts three pools (complete with waterslides for the kiddos), a fitness center and the Blue Marble Spa. However, some travelers say that this property could be better, with some citing costly parking fees as reasons they may think twice about returning. Members of the brand's loyalty program can offset fees by cashing in accumulated points.
