Very cool & vintage charming (Yeah, I'm a guy, and yes I did say "charming"...LOL)
Right in the mix of Laguna's restaurants, bars and stores. Park your car and forget about it. You can walk to everything from here, including the beach which is directly behind the hotel. Many rooms have ocean views, get lulled to sleep by the roar of the crashing waves, after a bloody Mary in the oceanfront bar (Damn, I'm a good writer, huh?? LOL)
Built in 1930 don't expect the Ritz, but do expect to go back in time, and walk the halls that Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks Jr and many other Hollywood celebs did in "the day". Did I mention Errol Flynn and Humphrey Bogart also rested their heads there...
The front desk manager "Varia" was AWESOME, and helped me book a great overnight birthday stay for me and my wife. Thanks Varia!
Everything looks freshly painted and I heard they were getting new room furnishings. Although everything was fine when we were there.
This hotel is awesome for history buffs and people wanting a taste of vintage "Hotel'ery", I just made that word up....LOL
Yeah the bathrooms are a bit small and the fire escapes add to the history of the place (C'mon, didn't you watch "I love Lucy", that's the way buildings were designed back then...)
We were blown away with the location, staff & vintage building, rich in history. A definite stay in Laguna Beach!
