There's not many hotels on the beach in Santa Monica is one of them! This is an established older hotel sitting next to their newer sister hotel, Shutters on the Beach. There's something about the history of an older hotel that has a charm the newer ones lack and that's what you find here. This is a luxury class hotel but worth it - if you want a suite try 510 the beautiful one bedroom king suite. There's a yoga and fitness class included and though I didn't have time for the spa, their services look appealing. Very relaxing, amazing views and what always matters most to me - great guest services. Thanks Connie for looking after us and for my husbands birthday treat!

Casa Del Mar is a beautiful hotel situated right on the ocean and steps away from the pier. Our room was beautiful, very comfortable, spacious and clean. I recommend at least a partial room view. That's what we had and it was awesome. The cleaning ladies did a wonderful job keeping our room well appointed. Also, we did you use the car service one night and that was very convenient. The driver, Myron, even picked us back up. I have a few complaints. One, we heard pipe noise from the ceiling that woke us up occasionally. Our room was on the 7th floor. We did say something at check out and we were credited for a meal. Two, the food at the hotel was very disappointing. I don't recommend the fried calamari or the desserts. Three, while the MAJORITY of the STAFF were very friendly and hospitable, we came across two that made me wonder how they had jobs at such a nice hotel. They were rude and had bad manners. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. I would recommend Casa Del Mar and would not hesitate to stay again if I am ever in the Santa Monica area.

A beautiful classic hotel featuring comfortable rooms and a view you can’t beat. It’s right on the ocean! Our room had a cute little courtyard attached, it was beautifully furnished with great books to read by the beach or learn about the area. It was stocked with good shampoos & lotions including sun screen. The cafe for breakfast was simply fantastic. The server was excellent making good recommendations. Their fresh squeezed juice was delicious. The only disappointment was there was no valet or bellman to greet us when we arrived late at night. We had to figure out where the check in desk was on the second level of the grand entrance. The concierge seemed bothered to check us out when the front desk was empty the next morning. It happens. People are people. We’ll return!

Had a lovely visit to Casa del Mar for my 60th birthday. Staff was helpful, friendly and not stuffy. Cookies and cocoa for the holidays was a nice touch. Gigantic, live Christmas tree was majestic and warming. Loved the stay.

The Casa Del Mar is a nice hotel on the beach. Nicely decorated rooms with a home feeling, good spa and a small but pleasant swimming pool & jacuzzi. However, staff at the restaurant can be arrogant, makes mistakes and service is very slow.

Stayed here for a couples getaway/business gathering on recommendation from friends who live close; this charming hotel did not disappoint. Felt like we were right in the hub of things without excessive noise or traffic. We had a beautiful room with every necessity and more (Malin Goetz products!), a great view of the water and were within walking distance of lots of shopping and eateries. Excellent service in all the hotel dining venues. Considering the location, ambiance (celebrity sightings right there in the lobby) and amenities, the Hotel CDM is a gem.

We had two rooms there (4 of us) for six nights. What a wonderful hotel! Terrific accommodations- beautiful rooms, great pool and hot tub. And excellent restaurants. The staff are outstanding! The reception staff, the waiters, housekeepers, and staff at the pool all were friendly and made sure we were having a good trip. We will definitely return.

Casa Del Mar is a gem among hotels. The old world charm mixed with the unique Santa Monica beach culture makes this a wonderful holiday. The rooms are so beautifully styled with fine linens and very comfortable beds which makes ones holiday that much more lovely. The staff is very friendly in a European excellent hotel kind of way. The best part you have the iconic view of the pier which is a great way to wake up in the morning. Also our family loved taking the (free for one hour) bikes out to Venice Beach. In addition the hotel has a driver that can take you out in the evening within three miles-which was lovely the night we arrived.

Perfect hotel to enjoy exploring Santa Monica, Malibu and LA. Whilst Shutters ( next door ) gets a lot of the publicity this hotel is, in my view, even better. Great pool, nice spacious rooms and fantastic views. Restaurant, both less formal one at bar or more formal sushi restaurant were amazing.

The hotel is a legend on the beach , stunning position, impressive building. Beds super comfortable, rooms well furnished. Staff well trained , polite and very helpful, a true five star experience every time
