We can’t wait to welcome you, Guest.
We believe there are places on earth that have the power to transform us. We are so pleased to welcome you, our guest and soul of Hotel Joaquin back to our hidden gem.
Like all houseguests, we know you may have a few questions, especially during this unprecedented time. We wanted you to know that our team has spent this valued time away planning our re-opening protocols. We’ve refined the traditional Hotel Joaquin experience to reflect local, health and safety regulations and in accordance with social distancing which will be maintained by our team throughout your stay.
We are pleased to share, ‘Soul (and Safety)’ is our style.
A few changes to our offerings
Saline Restaurant is closed at this time.
Saline Bar is open for cocktails, beer and wine in addition to a small selection of light, fresh bites served in bio-degradable to go containers.
Our full wine, beer, and spirits list in addition to mini-bar beverages and snacks will be available for pre-orders so we can place it in your room prior to your arrival. Note: For your health, once Food & Beverage items have been placed in your guestroom, they may not be returned.
We all need our coffee first thing in the morning. Our famed morning coffee delivery (now includes pastries!), will be placed outside your door at the time specified and knock on the door. We will text you the evening before to inquire on timing and ensure its piping hot.
Not to be missed are a few of our local restaurant favorites which are available for delivery or pick-up! We will have a list of current offerings in your room for you to enjoy.

We’re always keepin’ it clean, however for your ease of mind, we would like to share with you our fresh housekeeping protocols.
We have partnered with a renowned sanitizing expert, Ecolab on a curated 5 Step cleaning process for not only our guest rooms, but for our property as a whole. This process includes using EPA-approved disinfectants on all hard surfaces and allowing the solution to sit for the required time. This protocol additionally includes allotting for extra time during the housekeeping process and paying close attention to all touch points including light switches, fans, shade pulls, faucet handles and record players.
In order to minimize contact, daily housekeeping service and turndown will not be available during your stay. Additionally, all soft goods such as throw pillows and throw blankets will be removed from guest rooms. Please let us know if you would like any additional pillows and blankets delivered.
On request, we are pleased to provide new or additional linens, pillows, towels, and amenities. Please text us at 949-449-2299 and we will promptly have them delivered in a bag outside your door. We will also provide an additional bag for you to place your existing linens in and place back outside the door for removal.
While lounging poolside
Your personal chaise lounge is waiting for you poolside. Yes, that's right, social distancing has its perks too. We’ve reformatted the our poolside space to ensure the lounges are social distanced.
Please note, personal coolers are not permitted on property.
Laguna Beach is one of the most stunning hiking destinations on the West Coast. The Trails are immaculate and go deep into canyons with fragrant sagebrush and hidden petroglyphs. It’s our duty to get you into our paradise. Stop by the Living Room and an ambassador would love share the inside scoop on the right trail for your time frame or check out https://www.visitlagunabeach.com/blog/top-trails-in-laguna-beach/
Making it a Beach Day? We’ve got a number of sandy escapes within walking distance to our property including Shaw’s Cove just steps from our property, and Crystal Cove.
Our Beach Service including beach chairs, umbrellas and towels are available Saturdays and Sundays. On weekdays, we are glad to provide you with extra towels for lounging on the beach, however our adventure gear/beach chairs, umbrellas, and yoga mats will not be available for use in order to reduce surface touchpoints.
