Fodor's Review

The view from this hotel perched on a hillside above Santa Ana is impressive, but so is the building itself with its colonial and modern style—think archways, hardwoods, and leather. Guest rooms are spacious, with hand-crafted furniture and bathrooms with hand-painted tiles; ask for one on the fourth or fifth floor to take advantage of the view. The restaurant, La Luz ($$$), has plenty of windows for admiring the distant hills and the pool and gardens below. The eclectic

and unusual menu includes rack of lamb with organic coffee sauce and Caribbean-style sea bass with coconut-milk sauce.
