11 of the Best "Stay - Cations" in OC!

Posted September 2015

"The rest of the hotel has a European feel; the lobby gives a distinctly Mediterranean vibe with high archways and hammered metal décor. Built in 1929, the hotel retains many of its original characteristic details. Their Rooftop Lounge is possibly the best place to see the sun set in Laguna, and while youʼre up there, try one of the hotelʼs five specialty Mojitos. Lunch is served daily at Rooftop, and drinks and appetizers from 2:30 til close. For dinner, Kʼya Bistro downstairs is a favorite among locals, and offers Mediterranean and European cuisine (dishes like Truffle Macaroni and Ahi Poke), “mini tinis,” and half glasses of wine at discounted rates."
