We had a lovely stay in a gorgeous, peaceful suite and the only disappointing thing is that the hotel is undergoing some renovations so there was plastic sheeting blocking the view from the lobby and bar and scaffolding outside our window. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the food in the restaurant was wonderful.

Last minute one night stay here. The lobby entrance is gorgeous and vast-but it was chilly ! Immediate check-in and up to the partial ocean view room.Shabby chic,beachy and pretty decor.Very clean ,nice configuration of bed&lounger. The floor slanted slightly to one side which was a little strange so if you have a balance issue...Fabulous bathroom ! The bath was... More

What a wonderful hotel. Although I only stayed here for one night, it was a tremendous experience from the lovely staff at check in to the quirky, but luxurious rooms. The hotel faces Santa Monica beach and is a short walk to shops and other amenities. Getting elsewhere in LA is not much trouble at all and the trip from... More

This is true the weather helped. Amazing bright days. But Casa del Mar left nothing behind the wonderful wheather. Staff always caring about the guests, specially the waiters in the cafe where you can watch a sunset in the Pacific, which is very rare for those that leaves in the other side of the continent. Last but not least, very... More

Casa Del Mar is one of the best places we have every stayed. The location on the beach with the walking path along the beach is so wonderful. The service from the front desk to concierge to the valet people was fantastic. I don't think we would have been able to get into the restaurants we went to on Oscar... More

I hated the stay there. You do not get the quality for the price you pay. The service was bad, we were referred to Shutters to have breakfast outdoors, where at Shutters you can only eat inside. The valet brought us our car back covered in bird droppings with a blank stare, the closet had water on the shelves..... Will... More

You cannot be any closer to the gorgeous Santa Monica beach without getting sand in your shoes - hence the location cannot be beat. The rooms are large and well maintained, the gym has brand new equipment, service is a little slow (in line for an unhurried resort style - just be aware of if you are in a rush).... More

My husband and I just spent a long weekend in celebration of our wedding anniversary at the Casa del Mar and agreed it is one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in. Although we live in San Diego only a short drive from the beach, Casa del Mar's location directly on the beach was truly a plus. The hotel's reception... More

I have stayed at the Casa del Mar three times over the last four years, always with consistent results. The hotel is gorgeous, historic, beautifully maintained, and perfectly situated right on the beach and close to Santa Monica attractions. Everyone I've encountered who works at the hotel is a consummate professional. One time a couple of years ago my husband... More

For sure not a cheap Hotel but it is worse each penny. The rooms are decorated in a maritim way and make you feel comfortable immeditaley. Beautiful lobby and restaurant with great views. Staff very helpful. I prefer the Casa del Mar rather then Shutter's on the Beach (next door) what is outstanding as well. I do look very much... More
