Exceeded our expectations entirely. Super hotel in all aspects. Location is amazing, staff are friendly. We had a premier ocean view King room which I highly recommend. Makes all the difference and will certainly be returning one day. Very happy.

This is a very hip and fun new hotel. You walk in and they hand you a drink to sip if there's a wait for your room. Fresh clean rooms, many with nice views (but not all - ask). The pool area has a great vibe and the bar in the lobby is more of booth but still fun. It...

This hotel is in an fantastic location. It is right across from the beach and yards form the Santa Monica Pier. It has a modern/swanky feel to it. While on the small side, the pool area and lobby have a hip vibe. In the morning there is a coffee bar pool side that converts to a real bar in the...

This hotel was simply fantastic. You've probably read lots of people talking about the location and that's because it couldn't be better. Cross the street in one direction and you are on the beach. Cross in a different direction and you are on Santa Monica Blvd. Go the other way and you're on the pier! Nothing is more than a...

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.
