The redesigned Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point, Calif., was unveiled in April. It features a new marble lobby, complete with waterfall, and 20,000 square feet of new meeting and banquet space. The top-to-bottom makeover of the southern California resort brings its total meeting space to 50,000 square feet and adds new furnishings, flooring, and amenities—including LCD television sets and faster Internet access in guest rooms. All 378 rooms have been completely refurbished.

The project upgraded the VUE restaurant and added the new OverVue indoor/outdoor lounge and deck with stunning views of Dana Point. The AAA Four Diamond resort overlooks the California coastline, Doheny State Beach parkland, and Dana Point Harbor.
