This hotel is situated on Ocean Boulevard in Santa Monica. The rooms at the front give views to the sea as does the small verandah at the front which is used to serve meals and drinks. The rooms are tastefully decorated and in keeping with the 1930's era when the hotel was built. The beach is 5 mins walk via a footbridge, the main shopping area and Santa Monica pier are 10 mins walk away. Service at the hotel is first class. The food was excellent in particular the breakfast menu. My wife, teenage daughter and myself sated in a suite at the hotel which provided a bedroom separate to the lounge area which contained a good quality sofa bed.
