This place was definitely created for relaxation at its best. I had a magnificent weekend and both my husband and I have to agree that the spa was absolutely divine. The cabanas and lounge chairs were also a delight to lay back on and watch the sunset. Great staff. I am most appreciative.

This is a first-rate place on the beach in Santa Monica. The lobby is beautifully decorated historic hotel with elaborate tiles and wood and a fantastic view from the comfortable bar with multiple conversation areas. Service is great and we had a drink with some grilled octopus with potatoes; very good and very relaxing. There was also a photo shoot... More

We stayed Nov 21-23rd during a business meeting. We are local in LA and had never heard of this property. It is part of the Shutters hotel adjacent. Both are on the beach. Casa del Mar was fabulous. From the moment we drove up the valet staff, front desk, and housekeeping were fabulous. Our turn down service was so thoughtful... More

Although we live in Southern California, we were meeting friends and family in Santa Monica for the weekend and wanted to stay in a special hotel to make our experience even more memorable. Mission accomplished! The hotel itself feels historic, but in a cool, well-cared for way. The views are amazing as you are staying right on the sand looking... More

Stayed for 3 nights, the room we had was simply stunning, a corner ocean front room overlooking the pool, lovely bedroom with separate lounge, fire place and lots of home comforts. Close walk to the Pier and a fantastic cycle path for miles taking in Venice Beach. Lots to do with great staff.

A fabulous looking hotel with small rooms and expensive everything. The staff could use better training:a bellman took us to our room and left without even showing where the climate control was. The bathroom lighting and makeup mirror were awful . Checkout had us talking to a snarky manager who was unnecessarily rude. The bar was jumping at night and... More

This is a top class hotel sitting on the beach front. I arrived at a very busy time American Film Awards,nevertheless despite the hotel being full the high standard did not fall . Staff took the pressure in their stride, always efficient cheerful and top of their game. The buzz around the hotel especially the lobby area was electrifying. Front... More

I checked into the Casa for few nights and was upgraded to a beautiful ocean view room. My room was beautiful, bright and airy. I enjoyed the complimentary wi-fi and cozy dreamy bed. The food was mediocre and you don't really have many options from the menu and the one restaurant if you want to hibernate in the hotel. The... More
