Inspired by the grand villas of the Mediterranean and the beachy vibe of Santa Monica, Hotel Casa del Mar invites you to unwind in style. Its vibrant new ocean view lobby and Terrazza Lounge by interior designer Michael S. Smith are a contemporary contrast to its classic Italian Renaissance exterior. Originally built in 1926, this exquisitely restored oceanfront hotel in the heart of Silicon Beach offers some of the most coveted accommodations on the West Coast. Each new exquisitely styled guest room and suite showcases local coastal art and residential design, many feature sweeping vistas of the coastline from Palos Verdes to Malibu. No matter where you are at Hotel Casa Del Mar, you are only a stones through from the pacific. Indulge in eco-minded wellness at Sea Wellness Spa before discovering farmers-market-driven selections at Catch Restaurant as you watch the sunset or just grab a cocktail in Terrazza lounge and enjoy the view.

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.

If you like luxury, enjoy star spotting and live the ocean this is the perfect hotel for you. I lived staying here. The seafood restaurant was also a plus and I was right on the beach! So every morning a walk along the promenade to Santa Monica Pier or Venice beach was a great

First Impressions: They say first impressions make or break... we couldn't have been more wrong. This hotel doesn't boast or yell at you with a grand facade from the outside to prove that it's amazing. Yet the incredibly spacious reception & lounge, beautiful decorations

There's not many hotels on the beach in Santa Monica is one of them! This is an established older hotel sitting next to their newer sister hotel, Shutters on the Beach. There's something about the history of an older hotel that has a charm the newer ones lack and that's what you

Casa Del Mar is a beautiful hotel situated right on the ocean and steps away from the pier. Our room was beautiful, very comfortable, spacious and clean. I recommend at least a partial room view. That's what we had and it was awesome. The cleaning ladies did a wonderful job

Yes, there are several restaurants an easy to find mostly up near 3rd street. I would walk North to the pier. Nice pleasurable walk wide sidewalk on beach, but be aware of bicycles on the path. Some riders peddle rather fast. With lots of people around during daylight hours not a problem but use caution during the darkness. Lighting is adequate in evening hours but there are also many transient people looking for opportunities.

Not at all sure if I exactly understand your question. Waterfront rooms overlook Santa Monica Beach and the Pacific.

"Ask for a room overlooking the Santa Monica Beach for the best view"
"Full ocean view rooms are worth it!"
"Seventh floor room with partial ocean view. The downside is that we woke up to loud pipe noises coming from the ceiling above us."
"Book a room with an ocean view. The high beds allow you to see the ocean while sitting up."
