Vacation in Santa MonicaPosted Aug 16, 2014
We booked our vacation thru expedia. Which I will never do again! When we check in they gave us a tiny room with a view of a building next door. Not to mention we were booked for 6 nights with 3 people. The manager matter-of -factly stated we book thru expedia a 3rd party and that's what we paid for. After upgrading and paying $150 more a night we were finally comfortable.

Great Hotel & Great LocationPosted Jul 30, 2014
Cons: A little pricey, but most of the good ones are.
Location: Santa Monica Pier, 3rd St. Promenade, the beach, bike rental, several great restaurants and bars, all in walking distance.
Went to Santa Monica for a short vacation. I have stayed at a J.W. Marriott before, and it was great, found this one online. From the minute we arrived on the property, several people were greeting us and offering to help. Every morning when we came downstairs, the entire staff made a point to say good morning or ask if we needed anything. The entire staff was very accommodating. The bellmen, front desk, bartender, waitress and the concierge, could not have been better. The food and drinks were very good. The property is beautiful and is located within walking distance of the beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. Highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed here July 3-7, 2014 and can't wait to go back. The amenities, location, and chic decor were excellent! The front desk and wait staff ( Evelyn and Jay) were awesome. This hotel also has multi-level outdoor seating, including a flat screen and fire pit, which was an added plus! The property is steps away from the beach, shopping, and fine dining; trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Great hotel close to pier and beachPosted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: The pool, location room and comfortable lobby.
Cons: Free wifi in the room would de nice.
Location: This a great location. It is a short stroll to the beach and the pier. Get lunch at Big Dean's at the beach and breakfast at Cora's down the block.
We were only here one night, but it was lovely. The room was w ell appointed and comfortable. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. At check we left something in the room and the valet ran up and retrieved it for us. The room was very clean. The facilities were great. There was a small, but lovely heated pool which we enjoyed for a few hours. We were right near the beach and about five minutes from the Santa Monica Pier. Parking was a bit expensive, but it was convenient and it seems in line with area prices.
