Southern California

Summer Getaway Guide

May 22, 2020

Over the last week or two, I’ve had an influx of requests for weekend getaways and staycations. While people aren’t quite ready to get on a plane (yet), the desire to travel is certainly back. And it is perfect timing, as many hotels are starting to [slowly, cautiously] re-open in May and June.

Being based in L.A., many of my clients also live in Southern California, so I thought it would be helpful to put together a comprehensive (albeit, evolving) guide of local-ish hotels that would make the perfect getaway when you’re finally done sheltering at home. Generally, hotels will be opening with limited occupancy and amenities, and will slowly move back to full operations as the summer progresses (and as the state and local governments deem it safe for them to do so). We’ll be watching these updates closely, and they are changing daily, so send us a note to find out the latest.

Scroll through to browse the full guide, or jump ahead by section:

Please reach out if you’re interested in booking anything! As noted below, when #bookedbyarbiter, our clients get amazing perks (and usually upgrades), and we often have access to exclusive incentives! (As a side note, I’ve heard that sometimes clients or followers are hesitant to reach out for one-night stays or weekend trips, afraid that they are “wasting my time” with smaller requests. I promise you, you’re not!)

And be sure to check out our Northern California Summer Getaway Guide as well!
