Great location and clean hotel
Posted Aug 20, 2016
The hotel was great. The room was clean and a good size. The view of the pool and restaurant were fine and it didn't get noisy in the evenings. The staff was great, especially the doormen. The location was very close to the beach, the Santa Monica Pier, and the Third Street Prominade. We didn't eat at the hotel because it was pricey. There was free coffee and tea in the lobby in the morning. Our reservation said something about free pastries in the morning, but we never saw anything. We found a close bakery-style place a few blocks away (Joan's on Third) that had great croissants. The hotel pool area was small but well-maintained. Due to the weather being lower than we expected, there was not a crowd in the pool area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would stay again if we were to return to Santa Monica.
