The 132-room Pacific Edge Hotel is now part of California's largest boutique hotel collection, Joie de Vivre. The hotel, on a white-sand beach near Laguna Beach's downtown district, is in the final stage of renovations. In addition to its 28 suites and a multipurpose cottage, the property features a recently refurbished 6,000-square-foot space known as the Villa that can be used as an event space. Pacific Edge also plans on introducing a 3,000-square-foot beachfront bar called The Deck in the fall.
