Travel Diary: California

Travel Diary: California

Now let me tell you, we definitely found the MAGIC in California.  So many things to do and breathtaking scenery.  Still soaking it all in (via Lightroom); slowly perfecting a few city guides for your convenience.  When I started searching places to see/things to do, etc. it was veryyyy overwhelming, as you can imagine because there is just so many darn cool places.  Here are a few notes that were at the top of the list that ended up being freaking phenomenal.  

 

STAYED @ 

 

RENAISSANCE HOTEL

9620 Airport Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

A boutique hotel from the Marriott collection.  This was a quick shuttle from LAX.  Clean and minimalist design, just how I like it. 

THE LINE HOTEL

 3515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

If your into stylish decor; view with automatic curtains, this is it.  Trendy from the moment you pull up.  They have a stylish entrance and cocktail area, followed by a the trendy rooms, of course. 

PEARL HOTEL

1410 Rosecrans St, San Diego, CA

A trendy hidden gem.  No need to travel further than their cozy outdoor patio.  Chick flicks on the projector and cutesy drinks, what more could you really ask for.
