I had wanted to stay at this hotel and was unfortunately disappointed. Whilst the rooms were spacious and nice enough, our room was the last down a long hallway. This meant that room service items sat outside our door for a good 36hrs. Seems it was too far for staff to come. For the price of this hotel I expected...

Room was tasteful, spacious, clean and comfortable. Service around the pool a little slow but not a big issue really. Best thing about he hotel is the location and that's what you pay for in my opinion, right on the beach and a great base to explore Santa Monica.

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.
