Bar nice atmosphere, and lovely cocktails. Rooms small , clean but noisy (had asked for a quiet room) . Not good value for money , as location... More

Beautiful hotel, very original decoration though somewhat "dated" and far from the standards of a modern palace - except for the prices ! Staff distant, no matter the price you pay - we booked a three thousand dollars two-bedroom suite - they do not sem to care. It could be unsignificant, as the surroundings are so nice and the hotel... More

We came here for a 2 day visit and the first room they put us in was a 2 bedroom suite. One of the rooms had no windows and smelled like filthy dog. The hallways smelled of marijuana and so did our room because the adjoining guest was smoking so much pot. The second room was sort of better (dirty... More

Casa Del Mar is an amazing property and in great proximity to the beach. I recently stayed here while on business travel and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are clean and spacious with lovely décor. I did not get to check out the amenities of the hotel, but I have only heard... More

A beautiful hotel where I had a room right on the beach.... The personnel is very professional and sweet... I will remember my breakfast on my patio with the birds and a street violinist playing right in front of me... And the view on the wheel on the Santa Monica Pier at night... The service is impeccable and the bell... More

We stayed en route to Monterey. The room was old-fashioned and looked out into a courtyard. There was nothing in the room that was special or that justified the price we paid. In fact the room looked like it was in need of a refurbishment. Several of the pieces of furniture were chipped or marked. The service was OK but... More

We wanted to try Casa this year after staying at Shutters a couple of years ago. Honestly in my opinion this is a much grander hotel, from the entrance to the bar and lounge and the beautiful catch restaurant. We had an ocean view suite which was plenty big enough and lots of wardrobe and drawer space. The maid service... More

This hotel is the sister hotel to Shutters and in our opinion is the better option. A smaller hotel with beautiful bedrooms and well appointed bathrooms. We were lucky enough to be able to check in early and the front desk couldn't have been more welcoming. The main restaurant has the most amazing view across the beach - a fabulous... More

For a hotel that charges as much as it does, it is somewhat frustrating that the "free" wireless is very poor and they charge a premium for workable wireless. Also, we had to wait until after 4pm to get our room cleaned. Stayed at a Ritz Carlton two nights before and the Casa del Mar charged 50% more but without... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
