Cal Mar Hotel Suites Review

: While not the most stylish quarters in the city, this all-suite hotel is located in an ultra-desirable and very pricey residential neighborhood in Santa Monica. Its just steps from the beach, the Santa Monica Pier and the Third Street Promenade, one of L.A.'s most popular tourist destinations. These 36 suites are a favorite of the value-minded European set, whose word-of-mouth recommendations emphasize the warm hospitality and multi-lingual staff. The hotel used to be an apartment building, and the vibe still lingers around the kidney bean-shaped swimming pool set into tropical landscaping. The spacious guest rooms also serve as a reminder of the hotel's former function, with sitting rooms, kitchens and even dining rooms in some. Guests receive a discounted membership to nearby Easton Gym when in residence.
