The Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach
On my first trip to Huntington Beach, I stayed at the Pasea Hotel, located just steps away from the beach and pier. Less than a year old, the property gets two thumbs up. Hip and catering to the Surf City culture for which Huntington Beach is known, it makes for a great place to kick back and relax.
The lobby has this interesting piece created out of flip-flops:
A closer look:
The pool was fantastic for my morning swim, and you can't beat a pink flamingo for a flotation device!
The fitness center was huge, albeit deserted. More than adequate for a hotel gym.
The room was spacious, clean, and well appointed:
including a guitar in the living room:
I love little touches like this:
Of course what you really are staying here for is the view. Yowza.
You would have a hard time finding a more spectacular place to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean (or a better looking couple to photograph):
I also recommend the in-house restaurant, Tanner's.
I had great service...
a tasty entrée...
and a dessert that definitely meant I was doing laps in the morning.
My only snafu during the visit was the bill. If you stay here, take a close look at every charge. I was overfilled by a substantial amount. On the plus side, accounting had it taken care of shortly after my phone call.
