My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights before flying home to Sydney September 2013. We loved it, the position on the beach is unsurpassable, the attention to detail and comfort was indeed extremely notable. My only complaint was that I booked early hoping for a better room and though it was lovely, it was slightly run down not... More

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed the hotel. We were here for our wedding anniversary and had booked a dinner in their restaurant One Pico. We were not disappointed. The food and service were top notch. We ate breakfast each day in Coast on the patio and dinner one evening which were all very good and with... More

We stayed for 5 days last week. We had a excellent view of the pier and the beach. The room was very clean, nicely appointed and the service was excellent. I enjoyed coming back to the room and opening up the doors to hear the ocean and the pier. The size of the hotel is larger then a boutique hotel,... More

I went to the restaurant they have an expensive valet parking but the service and the location are worth it.I recommend this place if you have a very special occasion coming or you want to impress somebody with a fancy and precious dinner . This is not a place to go to in bad dressed because the people in there... More

This absolutely beautiful New England stunner sits on Santa Monica Beach. The rooms are bright and airy, with a fresh and updated decor reflecting seaside lifestyle. The beds are sumptuous, feeling cradled in a cloud. This perhaps is in my top two hotels to stay at. And at Christmas it's absolutely wonderful. A morning run on the beach or the... More

The room was very nice, beautiful view, restaurants ok, service patchy - some great, some of the staff too concerned with looking cool. After paying $800 for a room I think it was inappropriate to charge for a sun bed on the beach. Also the wifi is of exceptionally poor quality - virtually non-existent and to get something decent they... More

I had a very short stay in this hotel but I absolutely loved avert minute! The attention to detail in the room is impressive. The retro toys, the candle my the bathtub, the beach towels and toiletries - all are there to make you feel in a beach house. The shower was great, the bathroom had a decent size and... More

A classic hotel on the beach. Rooms are nice, service is good, and restaurants acceptable. The fact that the hotel is on the beach is its "killer" feature. The hotel provides surfboard so don't hesitate to ask. While I enjoyed my stay, I can't think of anything exceptional about this hotel. Given the price, this was disappointing.

Was recommended to stay here by an LA friend as a great location for arrival by car on Route 101. And she was completely right. From the preppy doorman and car hops to the Cape Cod decor, it is great fun. Our room overlooked the Pacific and the pool, decor was very smart, and our experience was wonderful. The location...
