Had a ocean/pier view room and it was just lovely and would recommend this room as you can sit on your balcony and have a drink while the sunsets (over the water, which we are not used to) and then go back into your room, close the door and it is soooo quiet even on the main road.
The room and the bathroom were modern with and set out very nicely. We used the pool once and it was lovely.
The hotel is in a great location and you can walk everywhere, it was very busy and it was hard to find a restaurant not fully booked (if you are going during a holiday, I would recommend booking so you don't miss out).
It is a shame that the Santa Monica area doesn't do any fireworks for New Years Eve (only at Malibu) as the large beach area would be perfect.
An enjoyable stay at a first class hotel, its just a shame that they don't have there own bar on site over looking the pier as do the rooms
