This is a clean, modern, boutique like hotel in a great location for all that Santa Monica has to offer, including the beach, the shopping centre and tram to uptown. Rooms are modern and decorated in cool, fresh colours. There is also a lovely double width power shower. We had breakfast in the hotel which, although pricey, was really nice...

Excellent Santa Monica location across from the beach and pier, with the mall behind. Lots of great restaurants and nightlife within walking distance. Love their committment to sustainability from construction on. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Marilyn in the breakfast room remembered our entire order after only one visit!

A clean, fresh, modern hotel in a great location. Clean, brightly decorated bedrooms with large, modern shower. Food in the restaurant is quite pricey but we enjoyed a lovely breakfast. The hotel is quite expensive but feels quite exclusive and boutique style, even though there are quite a lot of rooms. Location is almost opposite Santa Monica pier so convenient...

Paid about $500 for 2 nights which is a pretty good deal considering it's next to the ocean in Santa Monica. Santa Monica outdoor mall is right next store which makes it very convenient. The room is pretty nice with a large glass shower and automatic privacy curtain. The beds were comfy and pillows provided good head support. I received...

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.
