Extremely nice hotel in a perfect location on Sta Monica Beach right near the Pier. Booked in as a walkup so the price was a little more than if we had booked in advance. Great rooms with balconies overlooking the beach. Staff was superb. Meals at the bar/pool we're great and not really expensive. Would definitely stay there again if...

Great location, comfortable room, good food, fantastic staff! While a little pricy this excellent hotel on the beach in the heart of Samta Monica is well worth it! Be prepared for SM being a bit "touristy" but still fun. Lots within walking distance too.

Very nice hotel, which is reflected in the price. My husband, 9 yr. old, and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Short half a block walk to the beach, not located directly on the beach. Make sure to ask for towels, umbrellas, beach boards, kites, etc . to use at the beach.

We first visited here two years ago and loved it. This trip was much the same with only a minor glitch. The outside of the hotel had been redone in a different color and looked great. It course is still right next to the Santa Monica Pier and within walking distance of the 3rd St. Promenade. LA and Malibu are...

When I do get the opportunity I would stay at a Loews brand hotel. This is the third Loews hotel I stayed at. I wanted to do a two-day get-a-way to relax and enjoy the beach and this seem to be the perfect location/place. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was the grand lobby with the palm trees. That...

The hotel has a fantastic location right next to the beach. We had a car with us and the valets, Rodger and Fernando were very attentive and friendly. The fitness center is one of the better ones we have used.

I stayed at the beach hotel for 9 days with my family. We first had a room at the level where you have the beach access so 1, to get a better overlook, the lobby is on 4. This room had a big terrace but I think it is to dark. I asked for a different room, so because I...

After a long flight from Australia with three kids in tow, we were very excited to be finally checking into this hotel. Unfortunately upon arrival, we were told that our pre-paid booking had been cancelled. I knew this was not the case, and we were lucky that there were rooms available so we could still check in.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
