If you are looking for a swimming pool, this is not the place for you. But if you want to experience breathtaking views of the beach, a glass elevator ride to the penthouse bar/restaurant, outstanding service and a prime location - book your stay here! I have stayed at this hotel on and off since 2008 and as recently as June 2013 for business and pleasure and it still holds up. It is only a few blocks from the beach, the 3rd Street Promenade and all of its shopping and restaurants and close to the freeways you need to truly explore the Los Angeles area. From the moment you walk through the fragrant lobby, you will feel like a star. The other best choice in Los Angeles near this hotel is The Viceroy, but avoid Loew's on the beach at all costs, unless you love Holiday Inn Style accomodations, dirty rooms and beds that feel like you are sleeping on top of an ironing board. Loew's Santa Monica only stays in business due to the real estate of the lot it was built on and catering to tourists.
No Pool or Spa, but beach 2 blocks away, gorgeous place and perfect location where you can actually...
