Whether it is the discreet service they provide or their "Luxury without the stuffy" they are doing a lot right. Just a short drive from the frenetic destinations of Beverly Hills and Hollywood, Santa Monica enjoys a more relaxed beach feel, with all the trappings of a Californian city: designer shops and a vibrant nightlife. The hotel's three restaurants and their seasonal menus are popular amongst couples enjoying a sundowner against the backdrop of a Pacific sunset. The 'One' spa is award winning and of local fame - owner Ole Henriksen has such a following there is quite the rush for treatments around Oscar season! Decor is classic California cool and rooms are furnished with rattan chairs, four poster beds, large hand woven rugs on oak flooring, all set against a palette of whites and blues. There are impressive in room libraries and all have their own Ipod docks; bathrooms come complete with inbuilt jacuzzi baths.
