This is a beautiful boutique hotel located right on the beach. We had one of their new suites with expansive top floor views of the beach/ocean. The room had a beautiful beach-themed decor and all the amenities you'd expect in a suite. The hotel staff was generally okay, but not overly friendly. Everyone I came in contact with had a... More

The staff seemed also under managed and in need of serious developmental work. Pool is disappointingly small, but you're on the beach and the ocean is just... More

After a rocky start where I was staring into an empty lot full of industrial bins...I was moved to a gorgeous room with an amazing view of Santa Monica beach and pier. I arrived with a very bad neck and thankfully found that the spa provided me with an excellent masseuse who was fabulous and helped sort it out. Perfectly... More

Have stayed here twice, most recently June 2014. Overall a very nice hotel in a great location by the pier. Rooms are kinda small but very cozy, almost feels like a bedroom in a house. Views are very variable. Once we had a direct on ocean view (but set back in the back of the U shaped building, which cut... More
