Relaxation in Santa Monica

The hotel was very nice and the location was incredible - right on the beach and took long morning walks on the beach. It was very relaxing time - just wanted I personally needed.

Great spot in Santa Monica, but bring a big, fat wallet. A very small amount of chairs around the pool. Half the staff was far too snooty for their own good. At such a high price, I expected better treatment.

Thanksgiving getaway

The hotel was beautiful! Easy walking to pier and beach! Hotel staff was very friendly! Without a doubt will stay here again next time. Food from room service was prompt and very good. Love the outside firepits, pool and the bar area. Room itself was very clean and plenty of room. View was awesome!

Noise issue

Everything is great about the Hotel except the noise level. I was there on a weekend and both friday and saturday were really noisy. They had loud parties on the 6th floor conference rooms (I was on the 7th floor). It is definitely not a hotel to relax and sleep early, unless you are located on the area far from the middle of the hotel. They have a few of these rooms but they were booked so I couldn't move. Thank God I did not have the kids with me. No other complaints about it. (oh, Spa not that great and service was ok, not worth the $.)

great location

the amenities are lovely.; the setting is desirable; the structure is nicely laid-out for a beachside and pooll/resort hotel. The wait staff was consistently less than helpful. I'm referring to restaurant and bar staffing. They are not accommodating and seem rude or disinterested. this was such a consistent problem that it seems there must be some management problem in that area. Also, menus need a liitle up-dating. Cleaning of room could have been better.

Nice beach hotel

We arrived at 5 and our room was not ready (not good), but they got us into a room in about 20 minutes and comped breakfasts for our stay. The breakfast buffet was very good (belgian waffles, etc). Also had an AC problem one evening, fixed in 5 minutes. View of the Pier is great with fire pits at night.

The Lobster, a nearby restaurant that looks touristy from the location, was quite good, great ambience and great views.
