Overview

Beachfront hotel in Santa Monica
Room rates are pricey

According to recent guests, Casa del Mar meshes a little art deco flair with Mediterranean styling – a mélange that has a beautiful effect. And compared to its sister property, the Cape Cod-esque Shutters on the Beach, this hotel affords a more upscale aesthetic. Count the Italian marble featured in the lobby and guest room bathrooms as proof. And the cool blue decor, intricately carved furniture, in-suite iPads and complimentary in-room movies only add to the experience. One of the southernmost hotels along Santa Monica's pricey beachfront strip, the Casa del Mar has 129 rooms and suites to choose from, as well as the tasty restaurant, Catch, and the gorgeous Sea Wellness Spa.

In the 1920s it was a posh beach club catering to the city's elite; now the Casa del Mar is one of SoCal's most luxurious and pricey beachfront hotels, popular with celebrities and foreign dignitaries, with three extravagant two-story penthouses, a raised deck and pool, a newly reimagined spa, and an elegant ballroom facing the sand.

Mosaic tile work, soft colors and rich woods reflect the "historic beach club" setting, and the eight-story property features a red-tile roof, wrought-iron balconies and sculptures throughout the property.

A true jewel, this historic grand hotel is world-class yet refreshingly unpretentious (unless you count the Hollywood crowd at the popular lobby bar). But there is nothing modest about its spacious elegant rooms, rooftop pool, and commanding location right on the beach — a rarity in L.A.
