California is called the sunshine state for a reason, with its guaranteed weather, cool beaches and throngs of locals with an almost unnerving, unwavering sunny disposition.

Where better to get your honeymoon off to a super-happy start? This earnestly hip, dark and alluring boutique hotel is a welcome contrast to the blazing sun outside. With its gorgeous retro furnishings, the Sixty emanates quirky cool. The rooms are simple yet stylish - but if you're in the mood for something a little more indulgent, upgrade to the Sixty Suite for king-sized contentment: get lost on its three balconies and chill out in your own overflowing jet-tub. The high-rise rooftop bar is great for hanging out in the cabañas, sipping prosecco and watching the oh-so-beautiful pass by while you tuck in to a classic Californian salad (blush tomatoes, zingy peppers and fruit). Or bin the health-kick and grab a gloriously gluttonous signature burger at the 25 Degrees bar. It doesn't get more fabulously American than this.
