I love staying at Loews. It's a great hotel, service is excellent, food in the restaurant is superb and the location is great too.
It's not a cheap stay but a good way to spoil yourself especially as a first night or two in the US after arriving from Australia.
Santa Monica has a lot to offer - dining, coffee, cruising along the beach.
Try a casual Sunday session in the bars along the beach near Venice.
