Enjoyed an incredible stay at the Hotel Ambrose in Santa Monica. It is 20 blocks from the beach but the hotel offers free shuttle service within a 3 mile radius (a wonderful benefit).
This hotel is a green hotel and the ambience is very zen.
The décor I found to be somewhat Craftsman in style. Very warm and soothing.
They offer a complimentary continental breakfast but it is more than just fruits, juices and bread.
They also offer throughout the day in the lounge, complimentary drinks and cookies.
The hotel staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful (especially Alex and Thomas).
The price is half what you would pay at one of the hotels on Ocean Avenue.
I highly recommend this hotel if your looking for a true gem and not one of those 200+ rooms size hotels.
