We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

There’s Laguna Beach and then there’s Laguna Beach, if you get our drift — and Pacific Edge isn’t called Pacific Edge merely because it’s rather near the Pacific. It is, as the name implies, right on the edge of the thing; not just in the general environs of the Laguna Beach municipal area, but right on Laguna Beach, the beach.

Well, a lot of hotels are on beaches. And a lot of them, in the face of the majesty of the sea, throw up their metaphorical hands, and abandon any hope of scraping together any sort of visual style that can compete with, or even complement, the sea view. It’s sad, but it’s true. Pacific Edge, however, is not one of these hotels. Here you’ll find poppy modern design, a sunny, retro-inspired color palette, and more than enough visual interest to keep the eye from wandering straight out the window at every opportunity.

You can’t help looking for the label on a piece of work this fine; and it should come as no surprise that it’s another Joie de Vivre hotel. We envision a future where the West Coast is more or less covered with charmingly stylish Joie de Vivre hotels, and the prospect does not exactly strike fear. In fact the boutique hoteliers of the world could stand to take a leaf from JDV’s book — few hoteliers, and essentially no boutique chains, manage to get the temperature quite right, providing sharp design without a hint of pretension, keeping things approachably cool from bottom to top.

In short, it’s a winner. An update on a rather faded family-oriented resort, Pacific Edge has considerably cranked up the style quotient without getting all velvet-rope about it. If you’re looking to separate yourself from a major slice of your income in exchange for bottle service and all the rest, there’s no shortage of places in Orange County that’ll help you out. Here they’ve aimed for comfort, as well, rather than opulent ostentation. Sometimes a sea view and a little sea breeze is all the opulence one requires.
