I cannot say enough about Michael Schibel! First, I want to say I always book my own trips, but he was referred to me, so I thought I’d give it a shot. He really advised me, and completely change the trajectory of my trip. Not only the hotel, but the city. I thought I wanted to stay in Laguna Beach, but Michael suggested Dana Point. He said I would get so much more value for my money by staying at the Waldorf Astoria. He suggested it because it was much more kid friendly, we would have more amenities. We’d have Dana Point at our fingertips, and still have the ability to go to Laguna Beach easily. I can’t thank him enough! My son was bored with Laguna in a few hours when we stopped there on our way to Dana Point. Dana Point offered so many fun things for a child to do. We went kayaking and whale watching, and just the harbor itself was so much fun. Parking is free everywhere in Dana Point and there are many fantastic food options. Great Sushi. My son loved the pool and just the whole feel of the Waldorf. He met a friend which allowed this tired working mom to truly relax! Michael was also able to get us lots of perks, which saved a lot of money at the hotel. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and cookies. Such a nice touch!!! Michael services are five star! I would not hesitate to use him again, and to refer him to everyone I know!!!! I am not an easy person to convince, and somehow he really made the right decisions for us! Thank you Michael. You are stellar at what you do!
