Great location, right in the middle of everything. Staff was very accommodating from the moment we arrived. Astrid in the breakfast room was fantastic. Very engaging, great with our kids and took great care of us. We will be back.

This hotel is in a great location. We splurged for ocean view and it was great. The main floors that were tile were filthy though. The rooms were clean but the elevators and common areas were grungy. The rooms are a bit dim for my liking. Over all decent hotel but not 5 star.

Booked two nights suite with king sized bed and pullout sofa facing ocean. Sofa bed was the worts castro convetable thin matress metal underneath, a roller bed was brought it which was acceptable but crowded a small spaced room even more.

I've stayed here twice in the past 3 months. The staff, valet, room service, and porters are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help you with everything.

The location of this hotel could not be better. It is just steps away from the Santa Monica Pier and nearby attractions. Champagne upon arrival? Yes please! Loved that added touch.

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.
