We were not sure where we'd end up staying while on a one week road trip from LA to San Diego (Mar.9-16/13) Our first night was booked in advance in Huntington Beach from there we were planning to stay a night here and there. Out of curiosity we popped into the Riviera while doing a walk around Laguna. Alex allowed us to see a couple of the available rooms ... who could resist the beach front view from this great spot. We booked it for 2 nights then planned to drive further south however after our 2 glorious days we couldn't bring ourselves to leave so we booked the rest of our stay here albeit in a different room and just did day trips...one hr or so to LA one hr or so to San Diego.
Yes there was a bit of construction going on the beach front of the Riviera but we were not in our rooms all day so it wasn't bothersome. Could NOT hear any street noise either ... if there was it was drowned out by the beautiful sound of the crashing waves!!! I loved all the hand paintings on the exterior walls. These two Canadians are so looking forward to our next stay! Thanks Alex for being helpful and informative.
