The Best Hotels in Laguna Beach
Welcome to “The Riviera of America,” shaped by artist enclaves, surf culture, LGBTQ heritage and Hollywood glitterati, from silver-screen icons to reality-TV divas. The southern Californian city’s hotels capture this laid-back-but-sophisticated mélange perfectly. Expect vintage vinyl, loaner boogie boards and high Mediterranean style blended with Mission Revival and midcentury-modern accents. Wander the area’s 30-odd postcard-perfect beaches, before retiring to a rooftop patio for cocktails and sweeping sunset views over the Pacific. Or amp it up in the O.C. — Orange County — with canyons hikes, ocean kayaking or tooling around on a beach cruiser, courtesy of your digs. Keep an eye out for migrating grey and blue whales year round!
