Surfs up at the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach. The hotel has become popular with the local surfer lifestyle corporate community for business meetings and retreats. And while it is appropriate for meetings, it’s also a great place to book a room for a weekend surf excursion. Located right across the street from the beach in Huntington, the Shorebreak Hotel is a modern, beachy boutique hotel owned and managed by the Joie de Vivre hospitality group.
The rooms are average size with a long, skinny layout. Many have balconies that face the ocean and overlook the PCH. Sadly, the noise of the traffic drowns out the sounds of the ocean but the view is spectacular and includes the Huntington Pier. The décor is modern and light. The bathrooms are large and amazing and have a huge tub that you’ll want to soak in for hours.
The hotel includes a fun place to eat and drink with their restaurant called Zimzala. If you’ve spent much time partying in Huntington Beach then you know that the scene is rather “Jersey Shore”ish but the scene at Zimzala is upscale elegant where you’ll feel out of place in cut offs and bikini tops. The crowd can still get noisy but there’s a deck area to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful ocean breeze.
Since it’s so close to the Strand (just one block over) you have access to all of the bars, shops and restaurants in that area which can be fun…so much fun that you’ll appreciate having a bedroom nearby.
