Lovely hotel but for the wifi use 'ph' as the username and password for the wifi or it is 10 dollars a day per device so it is pretty expensive. Apart form that a great hotel but could do with a pool and a bar

Loved this hotel. Desk staff were amazingly nice and so helpful. Room was very nice although small. Service was very good. Our home made croissants and hot tea for breakfast were delicious. (I would go back for the croissants alone!!!) The position of this hotel is excellent, so close to beach and shops. The view from our room was gorgeous... More

The only negative was that our room overlooked a motel next door. The hotel is spotless, the room was massive, as were the Queensize beds, the ensuite was lovely and the bar / restaurant on the top floor was absolutely brilliant. I would recommend the NY Strip. Great location to get to the beach and into town. The hotel was... More

The rooms feel very Californian with pristine whith linen and a great sea view. The restaurant on the top floor has a great panoramic view and the food is excellent. You can walk to the beach and all of the shops within about 10 minutes.

The lobby of the hotel is very modern. Check in and out were quick and easy. Valet service was excellent. The room was very basic but quite large. My room faced the parking lot which was sad.

Location is wonderful close to beach, Santa Monica pier and third street promenade. Penthouse restaurant has a nice atmosphere for a relax meal with a view. Rooms ok (regular rooms nothing special) but the suites are nice (but lots of light come thru window treatment. ). Good service

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.
