Beautiful hotel close to 3rd Street Promenade and the beach. Great location to beach, restaurants and 3rd Street Promenade. It's very trendy and upscale and decorated beautifully but the staff (front desk) was not friendly and not helpful at all. I've stayed at some beautiful 5-star hotels and this certainly looks like one but they treat their guests with disdain....

Stayed here for one night for a meeting nearby. Super convenient location in Santa Monica. Stayed in Jr suite which had a great bed, tub, shower and amazing views. Didn't get a chance to check out the food, but the bar on top of the hotel is very cool and has amazing views. Overall, I will be back again the...

I wanted to go to Santa Monica after my last trip to LA with friends. This time I stayed with my family. From the plush toiletries to the cabanna style areas in the restaurant it felt like a luxury beach holiday. I found it strange there was no where to hang your towels, you are suppose to just order more...

The hotel was very nice. The service was outstanding. The location is great. The rooms were very comfortable and modern. Nice amenities in the room and very comfortable beds. Although being on the upper floors is very nice because of the view, the noise from the penthouse restaurant / club can be very loud on the weekends. We stayed on...

We stayed here last Aug 25-29, 2016. This was our second time. The first was in spring as a stopover for our family on our way to La Jolla.

One of the nicest places I have stayed at, but it comes with a price. The room is great, very modern and chic. The bathroom is wonderful (I had the best shower I have ever taken here). It is very close to the beach and very close to shopping/restaurants. Valet parking is outrageously priced. Almost $50 a night. For that...

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.
