Walk in the footsteps of Bogart and Bacall at the glamorous Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach. Originally opened in 1948 as a private beach club, the now AAA 4-Diamond resort "retains late '40s charm but with many modern day amenities" (Frommer's).
Why we love it
- Nab this exclusive Travelzoo deal -- knocking nearly 60% off regular rates -- to visit ritzy Orange County in Southern California any day Jan. 20 - May 13, including weekends.
- Retreat to a 500-square-foot upgraded guest room touting a "beachy decor of rattan furniture, plantation shutters and tropical-pattern drapes" (Fodor's). Sip the included bottle of wine and look out into the landscaped courtyard and pool area from your private veranda.
- The hotel is ideally situated bayfront on Newport Harbor, making it the perfect spot to explore the waterways and Balboa Island on an electric Duffy Boat. This deal includes an hour’s boat ride.
- The 15-acre property also boasts the aptly named First Cabin restaurant, reminiscent of a cruise ship, and Duke's Place, a bar named after former club member John Wayne.
