We stayed at the hotel on our last night before flying out of LAX. We had previously been at Disney and wanted to see SM and move closer to LAX. Location is about 4 blocks from peir and promenade and plenty close for our taste. Hotel was clean and quiet and they gave us free cookies everytime we would come and go. Has outdoor pool and hot tub. Valet Parkeing only and it was $25.80. Too high, but I fiqured trying to find a cheaper spot somewhere was not worht the effort. We would definately stay here again, but it proably too far from the beach if you are planning on taking chairs, umbrellas....
I picked this hotel because it was the only place with suites for less than $250.

This hotel was one of the best hotels on our travels down the west coast. We had a one bedroom suite which was huge! With separate living area and bedroom with a huge, very comfortable bed. Staff at check in were really friendly and so were the valet service. We did consider parking our car at the parking lot over the road as it was cheaper but decided to park it at the hotel as we felt it would be safer. It was about a 10 min walk to the pier and there is are all lovely shopping area in Santa Monica. I felt like 2 nights was not enough at this hotel as it was so nice and there is a lot to explore in and around Santa Monica.

This was my second trip to Santa Monica and we booked the doubletree suite for four of us.We were only 10mins walk from the pier and 3rd st promanade. Santa monica is a beautiful place and very laid back. The hotel is spotlessly clean ,The suite would easily sleep a family of six .

Stayed two nights recently, literally from arrival to departure the full staff ( valet, bellman, front desk, coffee bar, restaurant hostess & waitstaff) were friendly in what truly seemed a sincere way. Very nice large facility. Two room suite w/nice view of ocean. Realize you're four full blocks away. My wife and I are walkers so walks to ocean west of hotel and retail/restaurant areas more north were pleasant. Is hilly, everything of interest was within 3 miles or less round trip.

Lots of nice casual but med to upscale restaurants in area.

Found fisherman wharf pier touristy. Nice small area of rides w/ prettyferis wheel. Restaurants on pier turis stuff.

Had breakfast buffet one morning food and service exceptional. We had vouchers for free buffet both mornings but only used one day. Waiter still very attentive even though knew we had voucher. Coffee served in large insulted carafe left on table. Omelets and other eggs cooked to order. Variety of ingredients available to add to omelet. Line cook grilled these prior to putting in omelet. Preparation was well above normal for this type of lodging. Large selection fresh fruit, fresh juices, breads & pastries, breakfast meats & sides, sliced cold ham & turkey as well as selection of sliced cheeses. $ 18.95 pp normally so not cheap.

Nightly parking approx $ 28 as well.

Would stay again in a heart beat. Area hotels are high, so for attractiveness of hotel & location fairly priced.

This hotel was not the biggest or most grand hotel we have ever stayed in but it was certainly one of the best. It had all the facilities you could wish for & apart from it's excellent location, I have never been to a hotel with more pleasant or helpful staff. The hotel cleanliness was second to none.
