    Great boutique hotel. Wonderful service and cute tiny little restaurant on premise. Good for families. It's sleepy and a bit off the beaten path but we've really enjoyed our stay.

    Designer Anthony Baratta drew out the property’s mid-century roots by ditching the Mediterranean palette in exchange for SoCal hues, Mad Men–era furniture, and Calder-inspired chandeliers. The refreshed hotel reopened in March 2013, complete with restaurant Tower 8, where Santa Monica native and Michelin-starred chef Josiah Citrin emphasizes southern California cuisine like ahi tuna tartare and avocado mousseline as well as farmers’ market salads. To really channel your SoCal chi, sign up for the free yoga classes.

    Small hotel in the heart of Santa Monica. Friendly staff and large clean rooms (I think they are all suites or very large). Nicely decorated. Nice menu if you want drinks or a bite by the pool.
