The scenic vistas of Highway One, which stretches along coastal California, offer the perfect backdrop for a Spring Break road trip. Face it, with luxury and boutique hotel experts Mr & Mrs Smith offering 20 percent off when booking at hotels in their California collection, it’s time to pack those bags, pop on that playlist and hit the road. Here are five places to rest your head that will have you sharing photos on Instagram rather than sulking in a dimly-lit chambre at the Holiday Inn.

Start your road trip at the top of California in San Francisco. For contemporaries, we suggest trying Cavallo Point; a multi-house development right next to the Golden Gate. Rooms start at $359 per night.

Book into a contemporary suite at Cavallo Point and enjoy a luxe bathroom like the one pictured here. You might not spend much time in the suite itself, as the bathrooms are rather enchanting.

After arriving to Los Angeles, head straight to Beverly Hills to experience a tasteful throwback to the seventies at Sixty Beverly Hills. Formerly the Thomson Beverly Hills, rooms here start at $178 per night.

The only thing better than the beach is a remarkable rooftop, a pool and a great view. Warning: Grab a lounge chair early as the place gets rather busy.

Welcome to the Master Lounge—a place where you can indulge in true bohemian bliss while staying at Petit Ermitage, a boutique gem in West Hollywood. Rooms start around $254 per night but Smith is offering 20 percent off stays of 4-nights or more.

Cannot introduce you to Petit Ermitage without presenting the lovely rooftop pool, too. Enjoy a cocktail while sunning on the top deck, overlooking the Hills.

Before heading south to San Diego, spend a few nights at the Viceroy Santa Monica—where suites may start at $349 per night, but they look like this.

Not to burst the bubble, but Spring Break is technically Reading Week. So, why not be a good student and read a chapter or two in Viceroy's library—while sipping a cocktail, of course.

Finish off the road trip by heading south, toward the border, to San Diego. Spend your last few days at Rancho Valencia, tucked away from the Pacific in San Diego Horse country. Suites start at $465 per night.

Take a look at this spacious, beautiful bathroom at Rancho Valencia. If this doesn't make you want to visit the hotel, maybe the Tennis Club—or the fact that it is pet-friendly—will.
