Shutters On The Beach

Shutters On The Beach Rating: 5.0 Pearls

A known celebrity hangout, Shutters on the Beach has an atmosphere of formal opulence, with expensive artwork in its lobby and restaurants, luxe features, and rooms that belong in a billionaire's beach house. Its oceanfront location and doting service are hard to beat, but Casa Del Mar rivals it with a more intimate feel and better amenities.

Hotel Casa Del Mar

Hotel Casa Del Mar Rating: 4.5 Pearls

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. It's one of the best luxury hotels in town.

The Huntley Hotel Santa Monica Beach

The Huntley Hotel Santa Monica Beach Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A design-conscious, thoroughly un-beachy 18-floor hotel in the center of a beachside community with an exceptional restaurant -- but, disappointingly, no pool -- that attracts a mix of European hipsters, wedding parties, and business travelers. It's good for those who prefer strolling and shopping to sunning and swimming, but scuffed-up rooms belie the four-year, $18-million renovation (completed in 2009).

Le Merigot-A JW Marriott Beach Hotel And Spa Santa Monica

Le Merigot-A JW Marriott Beach Hotel And Spa Santa Monica Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 175-room hotel, located five-minutes from the beach in Santa Monica, has comfortable beds but generic-looking decor and unremarkable amenities. There's nothing really wrong with it, but for similar prices you can often get more personality and better features at other Santa Monica hotels like the Loews.

Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica

Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A slick and inviting boutique hotel overlooking the Pacific, with 71 exquisite rooms and lustrous interiors in an iconic Art Deco building that displays the curvy contours of an elegant ocean liner. For a modish and luxurious ocean-side getaway, the Shangri-La is mighty close to perfection.

Shore Hotel

Shore Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This chic, 164-room beach hotel opened in 2011 with a prime location across from the Santa Monica Pier and a block away from shopping and entertainment on Third Street Promenade. The building has a sleek, eco-friendly design, and comfortable rooms feature private balconies; city or ocean views; and modern technologies such as free Wi-Fi and self-adjusting thermostats. The lovely courtyard pool area and well-equipped fitness center are also pluses, as is the locally sourced Mexican restaurant.

Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Its family-oriented, ocean-view pool and excellent gym make the 342-room Loews in Santa Monica a reasonable option for business travelers and families. Just note that the constant nickel-and-diming and overpriced food can add up, and that the hotel isn't right on the beach (it's across the street from it).

Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Luxurious (though small) rooms, an excellent spa, and a devoted staff make this five-acre, 302-room property one of the best hotels in Santa Monica. The Fairmont is not as intimate as the Oceana, and it lacks the direct beachfront of Casa Del Mar. But with beautiful grounds and a laid-back, private vibe, it's an excellent choice nonetheless.

Viceroy Santa Monica

Viceroy Santa Monica Rating: 4.0 Pearls

It's best known for its sexy bar and pool scenes, but the Viceroy boasts substance as well: friendly service, an environmental conscience, and clean, comfortable rooms, many with ocean views. There's even a library. The competition is stiff in Santa Monica, however, so be sure to check out rates at the many alternatives before booking here.

The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey

The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey Rating: 4.0 Pearls

With a waterfront location on a harbor, not the beach, there's little reason to stay here unless you're boating or have a business meeting at the hotel. Rooms have luxurious features but little style. Guests who want to hit the beach, or just be in a lively area with restaurants and shops, are better off staying in Santa Monica or Venice.
