Some of the world’s most beautiful places and resorts are in Southern California. Many of my favorite California beaches are found in Laguna Beach, which pairs perfectly with the neighboring and iconic Monarch Beach Resort, now part of the Waldorf Astoria family of properties.
Why visit the Waldorf?
Waldorf Astoria, the Hilton brand’s iconic luxury hotel brand, combines luxury and the California Beach throughout every detail of the 25+ Acre property. The Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort and Club features large and welcoming common areas, unforgettable landscape views, bright and vibrant interior decor, beautiful pools, a golf course, and of course, a private beach! There is also an 18 hold golf course overlooking the Pacific Ocean on site.
Convenience is key
Dana Point is a great halfway point between Los Angeles and San Diego, being only 1 hour away from either major city. It also is next to some of the best beaches in southern California including Huntington, Newport, and Laguna Beach. If you are traveling from out of state, the closest airport to the property is John Wayne Airport just 30 minutes to the North.
A great perk of this property is that you can redeem Hilton Points for a free overnight stay. This is a luxury brand product, so you will have to maximize your points in order to do so. If you stay at Hilton Properties, be sure to book with your Hilton points directly. Another great option is to transfer Credit Card Points from card programs such as American Express or Chase to help you earn that free night in luxury!
There is so much to do on the property but if you are looking to get away, there are some great hikes and beaches just a short drive away. Check out my Laguna Beach Blog for the best places to see in neighboring Laguna Beach.
