The glamorous seaside town of Del Mar is only 21 miles north of San Diego, but it feels like a world away. The pretty AAA 4-Diamond L’Auberge Del Mar fits right in here with an upscale yet laid-back vibe. Enjoy complimentary mini cupcakes on check-in, private access to the beach and live music on the weekends.

The hotel is a mere three-minute walk from the beach, and Del Mar Village’s main boutique, restaurant and shopping area is right across the street. Take a scenic hike at Torrey Pines State Reserve, play a round on one of the numerous championship golf courses in the area or visit the famous local racetrack.

The hotel displays photos of past guests, including Hollywood royalty Esther Williams, Bing Crosby and Clark Gable, and there are stacks of seashells at every turn. The standard rooms are a little small, but all have high ceilings and a separate seating area, and most have a patio or balcony.

On site, there are two heated outdoor pools, tennis courts and a 5,000-square-foot spa, which uses organic and vegan products. Breakfast at Waterfall Terrace is a must, topped only by evening cocktails (and sunset views) at the poolside Bleu Bar. For more upscale fare, the fine-dining Kitchen 1540 offers creative menus that employ organic ingredients.

From the press:

  • "Offers an increasingly hard-to-find slice of old-school SoCal relaxation" -- Travel + Leisure
