just stayed at the montage last night for a wedding and it was wonderful! we have stayed at the St Regis in laguna before but the Montage is the way to go! the staff was incredibly helpful and nice. Our room had a complimentary bottle of champagne, when we left, our car had 2 montage baseball hats in it as well as water bottles - they did not miss a beat. if you can afford it you should definitely stay there.
