“Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

My Fiance and I had a great experience at this hotel. The location is incredible (across the street from the beach, ferris wheel and the Santa Monica pier amusements), the staff is excellent and helpful and the restaurant has great food. It has WAY more character than "box" hotels in area. There's an awesome, wood paneled elevator. The lobby is inviting, clean and has a designer feel to it. The room was smallish but very well kept and comfortable. The bathroom had a boutique feel. It was an awesome stay all around.

Room Tip: Ask for Ocean View. It was beautiful!

Loved it. Great little boutique hotel in Santa Monica. Right across from the pier. No swimming pool but they give you beach towels and the beach/sea is a 5 minute stroll across the road. I stayed here 3 nights. Kept extending as the charm of this place just got to me.

Tip: I used "hotel tonight", the app for last minute hotel reservations, to book it so it was discounted on the standard rate.

Right beside the market bar and grill - which is great for food.

Corridoor noisy.The net curtain at the window not particularly clean and had a hole in it.The staff at the front desk were excellent and could not do enough to help.The Verandah was Ok however long waits and the staff looked very hassled.Overall a reasonable hotel but not particularly good value for money.Not sure if would recommend.Wifi intermittant and kept dropping out.

This is a great art-deco building, that needs a bit of TLC on the façade, but our room was updated with nice modern amenities. The views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Pier are incredible. The location is perfect for beach activities, shopping, great restaurants, and it is convenient to LAX. The staff were also worth mentioning.....great service. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The rooms with an ocean view are worth the extra price.

We loved this hotel. Visited with wife and 3 kids and had plenty of space in our room. The 1920's atmosphere was complimented by the very friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It's not far from the Santa Monica Pier and the beach. It has a great porch area out front for dining or just relaxing with a drink and people watching. Only problem is the buses will sometimes park across the street and block the view to the ocean, not much they can do about that.

I stayed here one night. Arrived late, left early.
Pros: very clean, close to the beach, good views, smell of the ocean.
Cons: a bit dated, some of it intentional (I suppose) though. Lobby feels old. Ocean Blvd. can be noisy. No underneath parking, as I understood, so you must valet park. I parked in a hotel next door: $22 for up to 6PM the next day.

Room Tip: Top floor is quieter
