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.

Stayed here for an evening during a layover and was put in a room right off the lobby. It was extremely loud and walls are thin. For the price of the hotel this is crazy. We certinalt will not stay here again.

Parking is valet and there is a charge. You are so central to everything Santa Monica though you really only need a car (or rent one) if you are venturing out elsewhere. Save your money and rent from the agency inside hotel.

"Rooms seem generally quiet and well appointed, many with views of the Pier."
"Oceanfronts room have a spectacular view of the ocean and beach, but can be on the noisy side with kids in the pool directly below."
"Ask for a room that does not face the apartments on the right side or ask for a room that is higher."
"Avoid rooms overlooking Atrium"
"Oceanfront rooms with balcony are worth the last minute upgrade fee!"
