So Beautiful In Santa Monica

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 26, 2007

We stayed at the Embassy Hotel this past winter. Although not a "full service" hotel, we found the accomodations fabulous. Every room/suite we saw, in addition to our own, was spacious with wonderful natural light and beautiful furniture. This is NOT your typical hotel where you get a small room and lots of company! Parking can be difficult in the area, but if you like to walk, everything is near by. The gardens and residential location remind me of days past when everything was not built to maximize land coverage.

The staff, which is limited, was warm and helpful.

Unique Quality: This hotel is a Santa Monica Landmark Hotel. Although not as old as buildings you will find on the east coast, it was built in 1927 and reflects the charm and craftsmanship of that time. Fortunately not much has been done to the building to change the original intent. There is extensive use of rich woods, beautiful tiles in the lobby, high ceilings and large windows. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning and the heating can be noisy (radiators), but we did not need either when we were there.

Directions: Just two blocks north of the Third Street Promenade, three blocks south of Montana Avenue, just east of Palisades Park and the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Very conveniently located.
