The 22-room Hotel Joaquin is probably the best bargain in Laguna Beach, and certainly one of the hippest hotels in town with literally zero attitude. It’s not directly on the beach, but it’s just a three-minute walk down the hill.
It took a massive three-year, top-to-bottom, inside-out refurbishment to bring the Hotel Figueroa back from the brink. And what an incredible transformation. This is now one of the sexiest and, frankly, best hotels in downtown Los Angeles.
Like the original Line in Los Angeles, this new Austin outpost also occupies a beautifully restored vintage property with archetypal mid-century pedigree. The views of Town Lake are exactly the same as you would get at the Four Seasons.
