Editorial review:

This Santa Monica location is next to the beach. To get the best experience of the views of the Pacific, make sure you book an oceanfront room. The staff is helpful and you, and the rooms are nicely decorated but not unique. Venice Beach is close, and this offering is a great alternative to staying at the more expensive hotels at that location.

                  • The location was lovely, m a screenwriter and the hotel was quiet, the reception staff were very friendly and booked us in quickly. The rooms were spotless, bar service was great and some well mixed cocktails, restaurant were fantastic. The concierge was amazing, the pool was very nice.

                    Expensive on the beach and incredibly bad value. Very annoying fees for everything, coffee maker broken.

                  • The location was awesome and ocean and Vine = the new restaurant was superb. Room was bellow i expect a luxury hotel and price, service was good, concierge were very helpful and friendly. The bed was nice and comfortable, sheets smelled great. An onsite coffee bar was useful for bagels etc and the pool was Heated was wonderful for our toddlers.

                    Fourth stay was not as impressive as prior stays and gym and wifi charges were ridiculous.

                  • Fantastic location for the beach, ocean front rooms and the staff is the best part of this hotel. The lobby has a beautiful atrium and service here is very good. Internet access should be complimentary and the bar and restaurants are great.

                    This place is definitely not worth the money, pool was chilly and is only three feet deep.

                  • The location was excellent and the aromotherapy sea glo scrub at the spa was amazing. The hotel was extremely clean and decor was modern beach house. The staff were perfect and also the concierge present the evening before my departure was very professional and efficient.

                    Pool area limited sizewise and the front rooms are very noisy on the Avenue. Unfriendly stuff on the reception desk, too crowded, the price is too higher for this service and the food is extremely overpriced.

                  • Lovely views of beach, a long drive and the concierge had a great map of all the restaurants in walking distance. The hotel staff were wonderful, service was fine and the bar served excellent cocktails and the rooms were quite spacious and clean. Pillows were nice and fluffy, food was amazing. The pool was fantastic.

                    Not the best location, very noisy from the hallway and the street, this charge was not intimated at any point up to check out. The price of a can of diet coke was $5.94usd ridiculous, bed was not comfortable and needs a remodel, Our bathtub was stained and old.

                  • Location great and excellent Stay. Staff were discreet and efficient, beds were fabulous.

                    Swimmingpool too little, rooms are poor.

                  • Location was great and the staff at the hotel was very courteous and helpful. Bellman service were spectacular and beds were clean.

                    The price is high and the room is small.

                  • The beds are comfortable too and location is good and the hotel is within a 10 minute walk to the 3rd St promenade and a ton of great restaurants. The most amazing shower i have ever had.

                    The price i paid was not at all i expected for the room.

                  • Great location and a reasonable value. The waitress service fantastic and very nice beds. The outdoor pool/restaurant is outstanding.

                    Not worth the hotel room price.
