Situated on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel is one of Los Angeles’ most celebrated beachfront hotels. A recent facade renovation that includes a stylish sense of arrival and new glass balconies in guestrooms proves that sometimes it really is what’s on the outside that counts. Crystal clear views of the Pacific, Malibu or city of Santa Monica put a spotlight on the variety of nearby activities and attractions, including sun and surf just out the hotel’s back door, family fun on the iconic Santa Monica Pier or world-renowned shopping and dining along Ocean Avenue. Additional hotel features include an oceanfront pool deck and an eco-conscious spa and wellness centre as well as Ocean & Vine, the hotel’s signature restaurant, and Papillon Lounge.
