Splurge for an oceanfront room in the tower for one of the best sweeping views of the CA coastline you will ever see. The rooms are nice and bright and well appointed. One drawback is the lack of air conditioning, though the ocean breeze is pretty good for the most part. I would still prefer AC for sleeping. The pool is quite nice though it can get crowded. Valet service was a bit slow and I could not check in until almost exactly 4:00pm, but I still did get to my room by 4:00pm so I guess I can't complain. The location is superb but some of the foot traffic in the hallways is heavy and the hotel has a "busy feel" to it, but then so does Laguna Beach in general. I can't rate this property as excellent and I think it is a stretch to do so.
