First time posting on here, but I've been reading for a long time. Hoping for some tips from you LA-area travelers.


Heading to Southern California with my girlfriend in June on a planned points stay, but I'm debating on places to stay. Looking for the best value when it comes to Titanium benefits (breakfast offerings, lounge availability, etc.), quality of hotel/resort and the rooms and a decent pool and bar.


Here are some of the places I'm considering:


+ Westdrift Manhattan Beach

+ Avenue of the Arts, Costa Mesa

+ Renaissance Newport Beach

+ Marriott Newport Beach Bayside


Any reviews? Recommendations? Also, if there's another 25-35K points/night place you would recommend, I'm all ears. Thanks in advance, all!
