Fodor's Review

Set right on the sand, this gray-shingle inn has become synonymous with in-town escapism, and while the hotel's service gets mixed reviews from some readers, the beachfront location and show-house decor make this one of SoCal's most popular luxury hotels. The cozy lobby evokes a New England getaway, with a fireplace, and tall windows opening out to the Pacific Ocean. Guest rooms have those namesake shutter doors, pillow-top mattresses, small balconies, and built-in cabinets

filled with art books and curios. Rooms were recently reimagined by powerhouse interior designer Michael Smith to feature earth-tone throws and pillows and a beach-chic aesthetic. Bathrooms are luxe, each with a deep whirlpool tub, a raft of bath goodies, and a three-nozzle, glass-walled shower.
