Letter: MOM LLC Wants to Make Laguna Proud


We started our Newport Beach-based company in 2009. Our team includes veterans who have been doing real estate since the 1970s. We have completed more than one hundred projects and built thousands of units, each with the passion and commitment to excel in our work for the community and our clients.  

We know how to work with cities and get things accomplished. We follow the rules and don’t cut corners. We take pride in our work, move fast and do not stop until projects are completed. We are working with experienced builders and contractors who have worked in Laguna Beach for years and are well-versed in its rules and regulations. 

On May 2, 2023, we did not cause the city manager and police to shut our properties down, harm the reputation of the city or Hotel Laguna and 14 West. Instead, we prioritized the safety and well-being of our customers and our team. We had provided the city with ample evidence of our ownership and had multiple meetings while we were running our businesses graciously. When armed trespassers arrived, we didn’t get the protection a business property owner, our guest families or residents deserve. This is all part of the public record. 

We love Laguna and want to restore Hotel Laguna to its glory the right way. We are very experienced in the hospitality, leisure and luxury space. We want you to know that we care deeply about Laguna Beach’s unique character, heritage, culture and tradition. Laguna Beach’s greenbelt has been designated a historic American landscape by the National Park Service and Department of Interior. We greatly respect this nomination documentation that is housed in the United States Library of Congress.  

The Hotel Laguna is not for sale. We are asking all of you for the opportunity to get to know us and to let us show you how committed we are and who we are. You will see that we are working very hard and diligently to restore the hotel’s time-honored legacy. Our goal is to stay in communication with you on the continuing progress of the hotel and to ensure that the hotel is seen as Laguna Beach’s crown jewel. We want to make you proud.

  1. MOM LLC: Thank you for the introduction to the MOM company and for sharing and clarifying the unfortunate incidents that occurred on May 2nd. Sadly, this shocking chain of events is now part of the Laguna Hotel and LB history. It is encouraging to hear that MOM fully understood the importance of working with the City too. We can only hope our next Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem, City Manager and City Attorney can learn from this and will act expeditiously and responsibly to support your investments. Police protection isn’t an option, nor discretionary by our City Manager.

    Yes, the public wants assurance that the Hotel Laguna renovation will be completed as you state here: “We love Laguna and want to restore Hotel Laguna to its glory the right way.” Nothing less should be acceptable to LB stakeholders. Wishing MOM success! Thank you.

  2. Who is MOM Laguna? We’ve been told the owner of the properties is Continuum Analytics. OK, so you build “units.” But have you ever built, owned, or operated a hotel? What’s your experience in the hospitality space? When you say you are working with Laguna contractors, what exactly are you working on? Who is your architect? I know of two locally who turned you down.

    It’s great that you respect Laguna’s open space, but you’ll have to be less opaque to gain the trust of a community that has been repeatedly burned. And until you are more forthright about who you are and what you’ve done and how and when you plan to renovate our beloved properties, we will remain apprehensive and vigilant.
