There’s something very romantic about the notion of staying at one of the fantastic hotels in Santa Monica. Maybe it’s the end-of-the-world sensation you get as you look out from its famous pier, across the Pacific Ocean.

Perhaps it’s the rollerbladers or the iron-pumpers getting sweaty beside the white sands. Or it could be the bright Art-Deco hotels that help you to forget you’re on the edge of Los Angeles: the second-biggest city in the USA.

A city in its own right, the oceanfront location of Santa Monica and its laidback vibes make it a popular destination for visitors to LA and the cool California coast. Beach hotels in Santa Monica are in high demand, and as a premium location that means only one thing: expensive hotels.

Some of the most luxurious hotels in Santa Monica are found close to the pier and behind the soft sands of the beach, on Ocean Avenue.

With designer suites, ocean views and top restaurants, these hotels can demand hundreds of dollars per night, but for sheer luxury and the best location in the city, they are usually worth the splurge.
