1. Re: nightlife

The Holiday Inn is in downtown Santa Monica. There are countless restaurants and bars within a few blocks of your hotel.

However, if you are looking for the trendy L.A. clubs that you've heard about, you need to venture to the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood and also to Hollywood.

Actually, the trendiest, hippest bars, with the longest lines, are now in Santa Monica: Penthouse at the Huntley, The Viceroy, Montana Lounge... You can walk to all of them. To be sure that you get in, go early and get a seat at the bar, about 7 or 8ish.

There's also Voda, Circle Bar, Air Conditioned, Zanzibar, the bar at Abode, and all the restaurant bars in the area including Sushi Roku, Boa and Makai. All happening spots.
