Nothing really stood out ...

Nothing really stood out atbthis hotel. Since the hotel was renovated recently. It took us a while to locate it because of that fact. Its also not really walking distance to the Santa Monica pier (unless you're up for a 20 block walk). They did, however, provide a free shuttle ride to the beach and shopping areas.

WOW! Great Hotel!

The hotel is situated perfectly to all things a tourist would like to do and see in Santa Monica. The rooms were beautiful and clean and the bed was comfortable. I was really impressed with the double window to keep out the street noise! Without question, I would stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Santa Monica beach, Third Street Promenade and great restaurants are a short walk from the hotel. Just park your car at the hotel and you are set for a perfect weekend!

Great hotel in a great neighborhood

This hotel is clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The hotel provides shuttle service to shopping and the beach - couldn't be better! Also bus service is less than 1/2 block away which is also very handy. Nice to have the IHOP right on the premises since sometimes you don't have time to eat while touring and it's nice to be able to grab a bite before retiring for the evening.
