I'm looking for some personal experiences folks have with the Huntington Beach Hyatt, and the area. Is it a nice vacation spot?.

I'd recommend reading the master thread on this property on FlyerTalk: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hyatt...sort-spa-review-master-thread.html

I've dropped in for drinks and a bite to eat over the years at the Hyatt.

I would not really call it a "resort", of the Hawaii or Mexico variety, but a more of a business like hotel that happens to be beach adjacent, and I suppose a good base if you plan on being doing other things around SoCal, especially Northern OC, or Long Beach areas.

If you want a more secluded getaway with the wife, I'd recommend the new Terrana Resort in Palos Verdes next to the Trump National Golf Course. Since this gorgeous location is on a cliff, its does not have much of a beach however, but is a good place to bum out for a few days at the pools. (you can always drive about 15mins to a good beach nearby)

If you want a SoCal beach experience, then I'd recommend the all suite Beach House in Hermosa Beach the home of beach volley ball and modern surfing. You're on the beach, with plenty of activities such as restaurants, and pretty easy access to greater LA.

What are you looking for? I probably have some other ideas based on what you want.

Wow, that looks awesome. It's reminiscent of the Montage(?) in Laguna, my Brother n law and my Wife's Uncle both brag to us about that place but it's out of our price range as we're paying for our trip out of our pockets and not on a corporate retreat.

Back in 2003 my Wife and I stayed at the JW Marriott Le Merigot in Santa Monica, we absolutely loved it. I was looking for something along those lines in the Newport Beach/Laguna beach/Huntington beach etc.. areas. I don't suppose the Terrana resort offers a Government employee or law enforcement discount?.. The Le Merigot does, they are quoting $249 a night for the discount on a standard rate of $349 a night.

Yes the Montage in Laguna is indeed nice but pricey.

For the Terranea I'm not sure about govt rates they have but I have seen radio and print advertising for them with weekday stays in the $200/range. This will be their first full summer, so I'm not sure if they have their pricing all figured out and might be offering some deals. Give them a call.

Here is an LA Times blog with 20% off offer from two weeks ago -- says rates are $252.

Otherwise, if you are willing to skip the ocean front location there are certainly other good properties in both LA and OC. You looking for a base to tour around town from, or just more veg vacation hence the desire for the ocean?

p.s.-feel free to PM/email me if you desire.
