Selected this Santa Monica hotel for two reasons...close to LAX and on the beach. We found it to be delightful. It's a kicky little 1930's style hotel which has been totally refurbished. What it lacks in modern amenities, it makes up for in charm. The porch out front is the obvious choice if eating at the hotel while you are staying here. Across the street is the beach and people watching is at its best. The room doors have retained a cute open-the-latch peephole to see who's knocking. The bathroom faucets, etc. are probably new but have that heavy industrial look from the '30's and the tile in our bathroom was a splashy green, black, and white. We even spotted a pipe in the ceiling, left over from the good old days. The air conditioning worked great (will freeze you out) and the hot water stayed hot as long as you wanted. The toiletries were an herbal blend that evoked a spa sense. Even the elevators are old, paneled in heavy wood, and one even sports the original hand-operated floor selector wheel (what DO you call those?) location. Our only problem is that during the one-night stay there, the alarm went off in the elevator and beeped continually for a while.....we're from Texas....could it have been a fire alert? Earthquake alert? Tsunami? Nope, just the elevator. The next morning there was an out-of-order sign on the elevator so we had to use the other until the former was quickly repaired. Stay here. It's absolutely adorable.....and by the way, is close to the shopping district called Promenade on 3rd street within walking distance.
