Whale watching and sport fishing are a way of life for many guests at this Dana Point hotel who want to stay nestled close to Doheny State Beach.

Take a stroll along Dana Point Harbor or indulge in a Catalina Cruise, where you'll be whisked off in luxurious style. The location to the harbor, Laguna Beach and numerous wedding venues is just one of the many reasons this Dana Point hotel is so popular. The many nearby activities catch guests' eyes, but it's the value, cleanliness and sheer quality of service that really makes the stay great. Enjoy a variety of room types including suites, whirlpool and standard rooms so you can customize your stay.

A central location between Los Angeles, San Diego and Anaheim makes this Dana Point hotel the perfect home base for a California getaway. The Doheny Blues Festival is always a crowd pleaser, and the Dana Point Boat Parade of Lights is a romantic yearly event that can't be missed. Make the most of the Pacific water with sailing, boating or surfing.

Business travelers with Nestle and the Southern California Gas Company take advantage of the corporate rates at our Dana Point Hotel. Whether guests are in town for a meeting with Hobie or an event at Camp Pendleton, spacious rooms make staying as a group easier. Even if business calls, make time to visit the Battle of the Paddle or In Water Boat Show. From the Toshiba Tall Ships Festival to the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, you're sure to find something that strikes your fancy.
