Clean air, beautiful beaches, scenic mountains, a pedestrian-friendly downtown and hundreds of fine-dining options are a few of the features that have made Santa Monica one of the most favored among L.A.-area destinations. Moments from the beach, guests at our LA boutique hotel will find themselves within walking distance of many of the area's top attractions.

Palisades Park overlooks the ocean along Ocean Avenue.
