“Great Hotel and Staff”

My wife and I had a great time at the casa del Mar. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Robert, conciege, was nice with great restaurant recommendations, reservations and we were taken in the house car. Very professional staff and a great room.

In August I had to find a place where to spend one week in SM: so I read carefully all the reviews. Finally I decided for Casa del Mar: a perfect decision.
The hotel it is on the beach: and this is worth the choice.
We chose a room with frontal sea view and I spend all days at least 30 minutes looking at the beach and at the ocean.
Breakfast was really good (and a little bit expensive): having it looking at the sea is priceless!
It has a nice gym even if the best thing is running on the beach!

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here. The room was gorgeous with a wonderful ocean view, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed being walking distance from downtown Santa Monica, the Pier, the Ocean, and the Promenade. It was such a lovely and romantic place to stay.

We always look forward to staying at Casa del Mar when we travel to LA about once a year. It's definitely a treat for my husband and I, and on this last trip, for our 4-month-old baby too. The hotel is in the best location in Santa Monica - one of the 2 hotels directly in front of the beach - and nearby to 3rd Street Promenade, Main Street, and Malibu. The staff is always friendly and courteous and go out of their way to make us feel at home. Upon checking into our room this time, our mini fridge and bathtub spout was not working. I needed the refrigerator for our baby's milk, and was looking forward to a bath after a long cross-country trip. It was a little disappointing that we were not transferred immediately, and had to wait until the next day to be transferred rooms. Our second room was slightly bigger and had no problems at all. During our stay, I took advantage of the complimentary Jaguar service, which dropped me off at Main Street so that I could walk around for an hour while my husband watched the baby in the evening. That was a nice touch, although I ended up taking a taxi back because I forgot my cell phone at the hotel room to have them come pick me up again. :) The bar area is nice, and we invited friends to come join us for cocktails and enjoy the live jazz band one night. It was also nice to have family over to watch the football game on TV while we enjoyed great food in the lounge.

We took advantage of the pool area one afternoon too and went swimming with the baby in the hot tub. The area was lacking an attendant, but it's nice to sit outside with the beautiful ocean view.

We're looking forward to our next trip and recommend this hotel to anyone who's looking for relaxation while traveling in LA.

We stayed 2 nights over the holidays. While our room was small, it was luxurious, bedding was fabulous, and it had a lovely bathroom with carrera marble bath tub deck and floors. I loved having coffee in our room while laying in bed in the plush robe. The customer service was empeccable; everyone from the bell person, front desk to valet couldnt have been more helpful and friendly. We had breakfast in the restaurant and enjoyed the views and food. The music on Thursday and Friday night in the bar was very enjoyable. The jacuzzi and pool were very nice with great views.

While it wasnt cheap, it was a nice treat for us. Would go again if we can get a better price and recommend it.

Room Tip: We had room 209 which is on the lower floor on the side facing the Shutters Hotel. We found it to be...

I loved this place. The room was themed to a beach house and was really homely. At last, a US hotel with coffee/tea facilities in room! The location is perfect, within easy walking distance of Santa Monica and Venice beaches, as well as the pier and shopping centre. Very romantic, too. Only complaint: no free wi-fi - this was the only hotel during our US tour which charged

This was our first stay at Casa Del Mar, although we've been to its restaurant and lobby bar a number of imes before. We loved our room, which had a great ocean view and a great bed. The furnishings are very similar to the sister property across the street, Shutters-on-the-Beach, where we've stayed quite a few times. We actually like Casa Del Mar a bit more. The staff all were outstanding. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Face the ocean if you can.
