I have to take some serious issue with this article at the NY Post. The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel is not terribly swanky! Its very unfortunate, too. Just because it shares the name, do not be confused. It was a disappointment compared to the other Ritzes I've stayed in. (I'm building a collection.) I do, however, like the beach front location. Even in March, a walk on the beach was a bit too cool for me, and I live in DC!
