Great stay at the Santa Monica Hilton! They upgraded us to a suite when we checked in since we were staying for several nights. The location is great, it’s a short walk to the beach and to tons of restaurants and stores. If you have a rental car it’s only about a 15 minute drive to Beverly Hills, a 30 minute drive to Universal Studios and an hour drive to Disneyland which made it a great spot to stay if you want to do everything but also have some relaxing beach days without having to drive anywhere. I did find that the parking was a substantial extra cost since there was no self parking option and the valet parking was $46 per day after tax. It definitely added an extra expense to the stay on top of what you were already planning to spend for accommodations.

I paid for ocean view but instead got a view of the loud freeway instead. Also, not much of a “fitness” center. I guess if you call 2 treadmills & 2 ellipticals a gym. Lastly, no hot tub for the cool nights tk relax in. I wouldn’t stay here again.

Beautifully and comfortably remodeled; great Santa Monica location.

Ocean View isn’t what you expect. The Ocean View have a giant parking garage structure blocking the majority of the view. Was not worth the extra money.

Valet Parking is required and it is $39 per night. We were not told the hotel was under construction until check-in, when they informed us that we would hear the construction early in the morning. We also had to walk through construction zones to get to our room. Rooms are very nice, but the first room we found someone's knife left on the couch so that made us question how well they cleaned the rooms.

Construction..poor attitudes from dinning room staff

The staff was very good however our room was run down and although we were told there were renovations coming to me that does not justify what we paid. There was construction happening at the hotel and we’re not informed that this would be happening until we arrived. $39 per night for parking is excessive. To me parking is a necessity and should be included in the original price

The warm cookies is the hospitality Fruit infused juices when you walk in it’s just nice just the carpet needs to be taken out and redone it’s old

Great view of the ocean! Wonderful pool and work out facility and great coffee!

Valet was great. Cookies were delicious. Front desk was helpful

A "roadside inn standard" for rather a lot of money, but that's unfortunately normal in the LA area. The worst insult was a seriously overpriced valet parking only.

Nice clean hotel, great location and friendly staff

Dear Guest, Warm greetings from all of us in Santa Monica. It was a pleasure to welcome you to the sun and sand of Southern California and we appreciate you taking the time to share your review. While we hope our ideal location served you well for exploring all that awaits just beyond our front doors, we are sorry to learn that your first room was not perfectly detailed to greet an arriving guest. We thank you for bringing this to our attention and we trust that your second room served as an ideal home-away-from-home. We thank you once more and we look forward to you one day visiting again so that you can experience our new rooms which will make their debut later this year. Warm Regards, Doubletree Suites Santa Monica
