I stayed here for several weeks a year or so ago and I absolutely loved it. Particularly for work. It's away from the tourists and all the rooms are suite-sized so there's plenty of space to let your mind breathe. The restaurant breakfast is decent and you're close to the beach, two pluses, plus it's an easy escape onto the... More

I was greeted at the hotel by a nice doorman who opened my door to the car and was very polite and cordial. Onto the front desk where I was greeted by a very polite and wonderful staff. My stay was nothing short of wonderful. Great staff, great rooms, great food, great pool, great view, great spot, great time.

True to its description this was a most pleasant stay. Lovely staff and beach style but generous sized rooms in an intimate boutique setting. Beds are super luxurious. Pool is smaller than other large resorts but big enough to cool off. Only downside is it closes at 6pm so don't plan your return after a big day too late if... More

There’s so much to love about this boutique hotel from the location to the luxurious rooms to the sexy pool area. What stands out from other hotel experiences, however, is the exceptional service. A friend and I recently stayed and were treated like royalty by the staff (obviously, we’re not), specifically Charles and Suzanne, their exceptional night crew. They were... More

Not many rooms which makes this place great for a quiet relaxing atmosphere. Not super fancy or stuffy, perfect for kids! A few stairs over the bluff to the beach. A couple blocks away from grocery, nails, 3rd street promenade, beach and Just gorgeous views. Friendly valet, front desk and house keeping staff. I will stay here again. Very convenient... More

It was just what we needed. The courtyard and pool were a fantastic bonus. Our room was spacious and lovely however the previous occupant had obviously been smoking in it as the smell of cigar smoke was very overpowering. It was my one complaint. Otherwise everything was great!

The architecture of the hotel was great, as well as the rooms and the pool area. Some members of staff were super friendly but we didn't receive a warm family welcome upon arriving at the hotel. I really feel there was a lack of welcome to the entire family, after our long drive a cookie and a juice would've been... More

This place is great for families. The staff are really courteous and they can't help you too much. The bar and food is great you don't have to do anything. There is a member of staff for everything. The concierge service is great loads of helpful tips and advice. Also location can't be better.

Only spent two nights here, mid-week, but had a nice stay. Good location and nice relaxed vibe, except when there were screaming kids scurrying about the pool. But hey, I've been that "annoying thing" by the pool before too.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
