This was our final stop on a three city, 12 day family trip to CA. Our family of six (kids' age range 11-16) had been to San Francisco and Yosemite earlier so we wanted to be on the beach but with good access to the wide variety of things we wanted to do in greater LA. We stayed for five nights. Reserved a 1 BR suite with full ocean view (facing west/the beach) plus another room with 2 Kings that had a pool view; both on upper floor. Suite had a king bedroom plus parlor with pullout couch and we brought in a cot. The suite was generous for two people but manageable for 4 because we spent little time in it during the day. Great location on the beach at Santa Monica. View of the pier/ferris wheel and went there at night to take in all the rides. Comfortable rooms. Plenty of activity in the lobby and the dining/lounge areas to make it an interesting place to stay. We used the dining quite a bit. Particularly enjoyed sitting in the outdoor lounge as a family around the firepits. Very good menu options in Ocean & Vine at the hotel for breakfast and dinner. We liked being across the street from the beach and pier in a contemporary setting. Also enjoyed the scene at Venice Beach. We rented roller blades from a place just out front from the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel and return.
