Iconic Santa Monica stay feted for its top notch dining, V.I.P. clientele and casual Californian modern vibe
Designer Michael Smith has imbued the guest rooms at this cult Santa Monica stay with worldly touches, from John Robshaw comforters to Tibetan rugs. The decadent marble bathrooms sport whirlpool tubs and TVs, and each room has a balcony from which to admire the ocean. Step out of your chic cocoon and you’ll have the chance to spot starlets having low key lunches at One Pico, the market-driven restaurant with a cozy fireplace and blue-chip views. Spa aficionados, meanwhile, will be in heaven at ONE, where bespoke massages and high-tech facials are the order of the day.
In the Area
Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue does double duty as a prime people watching destination and a place to give your credit card a workout. Don’t miss boutiques like Pretty Ballerinas, which does a brisk business in chic ballet flats; French Lessons, where you can stock up on wares from Diane Von Furstenberg and Alice & Olivia; and Stacia, selling chic knitwear made from sustainable fibers like bamboo. Recover from the retail binge at century-old landmark the Santa Monica Pier, with its nostalgic dining, live entertainment, and famous Ferris Wheel.
