We just got back from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We booked the Firepit suite as the beach views on the site were spectacular. This is a sham! False advertising. The view from our suite was of a concrete wall, our so called private patio was viewed by everyone staying at the hotel, there were two chairs outside,...

Room was nice. Shower great. Nice and powerful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Thoughtfully they brought me GF bread with my room service without asking. Great location. A slight niggle was that the room wasn't entirely sound proof. That said there wasn't that much noise outside so didn't cause me any bother.

We travel often to Los Angeles, and Santa Monica is our favourite place to stay.

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.
