I had a nice stay for business and had a beachfront room. The view is really amazing on the Santa Monica Pier, close to the hotel. Very close to shopping area, and nice connections with transportations. I hired a car from the hotel to Huntington Beach and the organization was super correct. For my first stay in the US, I...

Stayed for 2 nights in September .Lovely hotel with an excellent location a few steps from the beautiful beach and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants.Bedroom large and comfortable but view was restricted by a large building opposite .Large pool area with lovely views .Everywhere clean and tidy .Staff friendly .Only downside was the very expensive parking.

Room was average in furnishings and function. Some items not working. Hotel staff was not very receptive. Concierge totally dismissed us when we inquired about restaurants. The exception being room service. In room dining was prompt and the food was very good.

Stayed for business for two nights. Great location just steps from the beach and central to all things-Santa Monica, clean and large fitness center with plenty of working equipment (no need to wait), staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was fine with lots of room and a sliding door that opens to allow the ocean air in (no balcony,... More

First, the good. Its a perfect location directly across the street from the pier. Wifi is included, parking is extra. Now the bad.

The pool was being renovated and the noise was not pleasant. I did ask for a view to the beach but had no idea that i would see an empty pool and hear jack hammers all throughout the day. I was very disappointed since I thought this to be a swanky hotel. Make sure you ask where your room will... More

Luckily, I was in Los Angeles on business and wasn't going to take advantage of the pool at Lowes. The whole pool area was destroyed. It would have been really nice to have been told that prior to making our final reservations, dontcha think? The location is really fabulous and they did give me one of the top floor rooms... More

The location was excellent, and room was clean as expected. We knew the hotel was under renovation and swimming pool was out of order. When we check-in on the Friday afternoon, the front service agent told us that the loud construction noise will stop in a couple hour and there's no construction on the weekend. But, the construction jackhammer resumed... More

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.
