Nearly two years ago, JDV Hotels announced they would be opening a hotel in the "real" Orange County, California by taking over the old Vacation Village hotel on the beach.

Now, The Pacific Edge Hotel is just about ready to make its debut. And in typical JDV fashion, the hotel is holding a contest to determine the hotel's new logo.

The hotel is looking for a design that captures the "spirit of Pacific Edge and "communicate the special qualities of the hotel." However, only California residents may enter.

Californians can submit their creative logo for this unique boutique hotel from May 17 to June 7, 2010. For the winning designer, Pacific Edge is offering a stunning prize – a two night’s stay in its freshly remodeled Villa, based on availability, valued at $3000. Two runners-up will also be announced and each awarded $200 in gift certificates to use toward any Joie de Vivre property or restaurant. The winning logo will be chosen by Joie de Vivre Founder and CEO Chip Conley and Pacific Edge General Manager Kurt Bjorkman, and announced in June.

The hotel will officially join the JDV Hotels collection on June 15 but it is open now. The guestrooms will include the JDV amenities like free WiFi and complimentary coffee in-rooms as well as bright and happy room decor. Although, we are a little concerned about the age of the chunky box TVs.

We found rates that night for $139 a night for a village room with one bed. Oceanfront rooms start at $239 a night but you can also consider the hotel's Livin' on the Edge package which will get you not only a room but the hotel will pay $150 towards one "audacious" adventure of your choice whether it be shark diving, bi-plane rides, car racing, zip-lining or private paintball. The package start at $199 for a village view room and a three-night minimum is required.
