Perfect, my sisters and I travel together every year for a week. We try new locations and the Santa Monica Beach Lowes hotel has to rank among our best. The hotel staff was kind, prompt, attentive to all needs including asking us daily if we needed directions to anything, offered resturant suggestions, (we live in New Orleans and its hard...

What a beautiful hotel. The beach is your front yard, the pier so close as we had our own deck. The pier has everything and caters for all ages. Our last night their Jimmy Cliff was jamming on the beach, spectacular. Venice beach is only a stone throw away, so take a walk or hire a bike. The surrounding shops,...

The hotel is excellent. Located at walking distance from Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade. You just have to cross a local street to get to the beach. Rooms are well decorated, not luxuous but perfect for a beach hotel, clean, spacious, and the bed is very comfortable. Staff is very helpful and warm. The pool area has a...

Firstly if you have never been to California then it is well worth the money, it is the best place to holiday in my view. Santa Monica is a beautiful place, so relaxed and laid back with almost constant sun and the worlds best beaches. The pathway along the beach take you from almost Malibu to beyond Redondo and are...

Simply the best hotel I have stayed in anywhere in the world. They have thought of every small detail and just made our stay an absolute pleasure. Food, service, facilities, location, rooms, you name it and it is brilliant. Other hotels could learn a lot from how this hotel operates. Can't wait to go back!

Only a handful of rooms actually have a full ocean view. Some only have a partial view, while others have no ocean view whatsoever. It is close to the Promenade, but after dark, that area is kind of sketchy with all the homeless people lurking around. For a upscale resort hotel, why do they have double beds in the rooms...

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.
