I was on a business trip for 2 days. This hotel is right on Ocean Avenue - walking distance (10 minutes) to the Pier and many wonderful restaurants. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff was very professional and friendly. They have a nice bar area and the outdoor patio is full of lights and it's very cozy.... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, as it is in a fantastic location near the beach, pier, and shops / restaurants. Igor made our stay that much more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend

A short walk to the Promenade, the Palisades and the Santa Monica pier. Beach Access directly from the Hotel. The friendliest and helpful bellmen and front desk staff. Comfortable pool area (I was able to work from the pool area one afternoon).The only reason it's not a five is the Hotel is in need of some refreshing. They were replacing... More

I've been to LA just for a weekend, first time ever in the US I was impressed by the customer service provided by the staff.. Arrived on Friday night, checked in and had a quick meal before going to sleep. The food was very tasty and the guys were friendly. On Saturday they sorted all my taxis from/to Santa Monica,...

When I go to California I am weary of old hotel with a slight facelift to the lobby. This is far from that. Beautiful new looking hotel! The rooms were comfortable and new and clean. Everything about this hotel is perfect including the location. Right on beach near Malibu, Hollywood and LAX everyplace I want to be. Loved this stay!

About the only positive think to say about this hotel is its great beach location and proximity to Santa Monica Pier. The hotel's service was abysmal at every turn -- truly every interaction with staff was a pathetic case of apathy to the point it was almost laughable. Could EVERY person here care any less about their job and their... More

Recently I had the pleasure of spending the night at this beautiful and well maintained hotel. I was in the area with family members for an event and we stayed at this Marriotts for the night. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The parking valets were some of the most courteous and helpful that I have ever met! Rooms... More

Checked in on the 29th of December. I had a little problem at check-in but it was quickly resolved. Front desk staff was wonderful. At check-out, I had some credits to the account that were handled quickly. Room was clean and comfortable for the most part. I'm not a fan of shower curtains but they were clean and the curve...

The employees at this JWM were nothing short of exceptional. I felt like the literally were looking for EVERY possible way to serve me. From the valet staff, to the front desk, the bartenders and the concierge...high marks across the board. It would be hard to beat the location. It has the most peaceful area in the back with an...

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.
