Santa Monica’s seaside sanctuary
If you were a Hollywood socialite living in Southern California in the 1920s or 1930s, Hotel Casa del Mar would’ve been the place to be seen. Renowned for its swinging social scene, the beach club and hotel was the hottest address along the coast – a luxurious palace by the sea like something out of The Great Gatsby. Today, this Grand Dame is still popular and attracts both locals and tourists flocking to see and experience this iconic and historical landmark building which retains much of it’s grandeur with lavish rooms and fine furnishings. Relax and unwind as you enjoy sea views at this sophisticated European-style hotel situated right on the sands of Santa Monica Beach.
From the moment you arrive, you’re instantly transported back to the good times of the ‘Roaring Twenties’. The hotel has recreated this traditional look and feel using soft and simple lighting, elegant materials such as damask and velvet draperies and fruitwood and bronze furnishings. With 129 newly renovated rooms and suites, guests can enjoy panoramic views of the sand, ocean and Pacific coastline including the world-famous Santa Monica Pier. This chic, romantic beachside estate provides the perfect escape for travellers looking to get away from it all.
Each room is large and spacious, accented with shades of calming blues reflecting the sea views enjoyed from their windows, beautifully framed with ivory sateen curtains draping from high ceilings. You’ll enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep on their traditional rich walnut four-poster bed fit for royalty. Everything in their rooms is thoughtfully chosen to complement the style of this hotel, right down to the lush chenille throws and a wonderful selection of novels in their bookcase and entertainment system. You’ll be spoilt for choice with their modern amenities including a 42-inch LCD TV in the main room and another in the bathroom with complimentary movies, wireless internet access and an iPod docking station.
No expense is spared in their opulent and luxurious bathrooms featuring white Italian Calacata marble walls and floors, light fixtures finished in silver leaf, alabaster soap holders and glassware, traditional pedestal sinks and whirlpool tubs. Best of all, frosted-pan windows open into the guest room so you can soak in the bathtub while enjoying panoramic views beyond.
