“Perfect place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We think this is the perfect place to stay , its near the beach/pier and very close to 3rd street promenade, and restaurants/bars.
The suites are ideal with plenty of room, microwave and fridge ,but the restaurant is very good value if you don't want to venture out again after a tiering day out, the staff are very friendly and helpful, will be back again next year.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking the swimming pool, so noisy in the daytime but very quite at night.

This hotel is not right on the beach but is walking distance to the Pier and Promenade. There is a small gym and heated pool. Rooms are clean and spacious. We traveled with our grandchildren, so with the suites, we each had our privacy when needed
BUT I have to comment especially on the staff. Everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE was friendly .courteous and helpful. Kudos to Nathan at the front reservation desk and Shonda from housekeeping who happily worked around us when we arrived back during cleaning.
Thank you, everyone!!

I am guessing the site used to be an embassy suites. Good news if you know that style and format of rooms since this configuration remains. Outer room and inner edroom great for families with kids wanting to save money with one room
Even better the linen and amenities are upgraded to doubletree standards (the sheets are much nicer for instance)
The decor is a little tired and worn but the staff more than make up for that with great friendly and helpful service
All this just a few blocks from te beach and boardwalk
Be warned though.. No self park so you are stuck with relatively expensive valet parking.
Also very convenient for getting to the highway and into LA surrounding areas

We stayed here for just a weekend. We'd gotten a discount rate due to our friend's wedding, not sure what the rate would be normally. For such a short stay, I have no complaints. It's a short walk away from the Santa Monica Pier and shopping at the 3rd Street Pomenade. You have to park valet but the staff was great, very courteous. Can't beat the arrival cookie! ;)

This is a great hotel with very spacious rooms. While not right on top of the beach or the downtown area, it is still walking distance to them. Great friendly service too.

Easy access by taxi/town car to LAX - sometimes it can take just 15 mins if you are lucky like we were.

Stayed here recently for 5 nights in october with friends,as we were doing a tour of america and had stayed in many hotels this by far was the best we stayed in. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, Gary in the bar was very friendly and made us very welcome every night,angel in the breakfast room and enrique the valet and the concierge were all great too.hotel is in a great location and walking distance to the pier,beach, shops and restaurants. It was lovely touch to receive warm cookies on checking in,Our room was very modern and very clean. Will definitely return here again.

Great location, but a little overpriced. Walking distance to the beach, Santa Monica Place shopping and many great restaurants and bars. Can't say how the spa or breakfast was, although this makes you rate it (I suppose, based on everything else, it would be really good).
