“Had a lovely time in Santa Monica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Had a great time in Santa Monica with my sisters and mother for a great girls weekend away. The location was good...several blocks from the beach and from the 3rd Street Promenade. The staff was very friendly and made our stay there really pleasant. Everyone was extra nice and really helpful and accommodating. The suites were roomy, clean and I had no complaints. We had a really nice time!

Very comfortable. The restaurant food is even worse than usual hotel food, but service is excellent, responsive. Extremely comfortable suite. Easy walk to the beach and shopping, restaurants. Fitness center is small, but impeccably clean with nice cardio equipment
and very limited free weights.

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.
