Places To Stay: from beachfront icons to trendy, Gwyneth Paltrow–approved newcomers

Although we’re situated in Venice Beach, just a few blocks from the Santa Monica neighborhood, we’re thrilled to be recognized in Conde Nast Traveler’s list of The Best Hotels in Santa Monica, California.

“There’s perhaps no more neighborhood more emblematic of the Southern California lifestyle than Los Angeles’ Westside, with its marine-layered mornings and palm tree–lined streets. Its relative dissociation from the center of the city makes it extra special—a real retreat for locals and travelers alike. The accommodations range from eclectic bohemian stays to traditional beachside retreats, but all of them boast proximity to what you’re really here for: the ocean. If you’re looking for the ultimate Santa Monica stay, here are our favorite properties.”

Venice V Hotel

“ Set inside the historic Waldorf—a landmark originally opened in 1915—this property was formerly a residence for A-listers including Charlie Chaplin, whom the luxurious penthouse suite is named after, and underwent a major renovation in 2021. Updates like the oversized noise-cancelling windows are a major plus, especially considering its location right above the Venice Boardwalk. In the aforementioned Charlie Chaplin suite, relax in a plush king-size bed, watch the sailboats breeze by outside the window, and stargaze through the vintage-style standing telescope at night.”
