    Beautiful hotel right on the beach. Comfortable yet elegant Nantucket feel to the lobby, restaurants and rooms. Have a pre-dinner cocktail and enjoy the live jazz Weds-Sat around 6pm in the lobby.

    The famous Shutters on the Beach is perhaps the classiest hotel game on the shore--it has balconies on all 198 rooms, & direct access to the beach. Some rooms have fireplaces or jacuzzis. Read more

    It’s all about the attention to details in this New England inspired beach house hotel. The rooms are well decorated that make it feel like home instead of a hotel.

    It’s all about the attention to details at this New England style beach house. The rooms are well decorated that you feel more at home than you are at a hotel. go to the cozy living room for a drink.

    Fantastic views of the sunset. Also an interesting spot for people watching and a really cute, clean restaurant on the beach.

    Santa Monica's most luxurious beachfront hotel has a New England beach house vibe, with blue awnings, picket fences and floral trellises. Inside, there are comfy sofas and cashmere floors. Read more

    If you're looking to have a drink by the beach in Santa Monica this place definitely works. If the lobby is packed just head downstairs to the Coastal Cafe and grab a seat at the bar

    The Living Room is easily one of the first places that pop into peoples' minds when looking for a spot to meet up in Santa Monica. The beach house-like spot has unbeatable views. Read more

    Scenic view and lies on the quieter side of the beach, more privacy~ Also a huge public carpark right next to Shutters!

    It's both upscale and beach casual. Lots of tourists. They have a Diner type of restaurant in he bottom level. Pricey but fresh ingredients and generous portions. Good brunch options.

    I went splitskies with Jo Nathan on a burger and the chicken club. Don't be scurred by the small dogs and fake lips. No need to go hamalamadingdong on some fancy shit, stick to the basics here.

    Breakfast doesn't open until 7. If you're a jet lagged Brit, great opp to take in the sunrise before the joggers start pounding the boardwalk

    The lobby (with sofas to melt into & saucy live jazz piano music after dark) still remains one of the best places for a romantical rendezvous in this town. Toast with a Kir Royal~they do it gorgeous!

    The farmer's market-inspired menu is perfect for watching a sunset on the beach. Katie Lee, author of GROUNDSWELL, enjoyed many meals here while writing the book.

    This is the best hotel for a family trip in LA. Try the pier, the outdoor beach playground and the aquarium. All a walking distance from the back door!

    One of the best views of the beach in LA. Eat at One Pico and ask for a table by a window and listen to ocean as you dine. You may even rub shoulders with the stars!

    Don't be afraid to try mixing the side orders and form a meal from them. Also their Red Velvet cake is exquisite.

    Ask the concierge for a tour of the hotel's "beach gallery," featuring pieces from such artists as David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg.

    The ultimate spot for a beachy-escape, this ocean front hotel manages to feel luxe and casual at the same time. Incredibly kid-friendly as well.

    Take suites because most of their rooms have view on the parking and not on the beach.

    When Trevor lived in Santa Monica, this was our place. A great, calm setting with soft, live music right on the beach. Relax in the comfy seating and sip on some great wine!

    The thong for sale in the cabinet is pretty funny, but that "bath toy" is lots of fun, too!
