    Room was extremely nice - wish we had been there longer to take advantage of the balcony and the deck with outdoor fireplace. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Location is great - close to everything in Santa Monica. Will definitely be staying there again!

    Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
