While Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel brims with activity in its lively pool area and bustling lobby, the city hotel’s 342 guest rooms offer a beachy oasis. Comfortable and contemporary, the rooms range from 330 square feet for a Deluxe King or Double to 2,200 square feet for the Palm Suite. A neutral palette of yellow, sea grass beige and green plays on the idea of the sun, sand and sea, while clean-lined furnishings keep with an urban style. Rooms are outfitted with creature comforts such as Keurig coffee makers, roomy executive desks, video game consoles and bathroom TVs. In a $4.5 million renovation completed in the spring of 2013, rooms have been updated with glass balconies that offer unobstructed views of either the Pacific Ocean or Malibu. Suite options include 15 one-bedroom suites and four premier suites, including the Palm, Pacifica, Santa Monica and Bay. The Santa Monica hotel recently partnered with L’Occitane en Provence to create the Summer Spa Suite program in which baskets of full-size beauty products are provided for premier suite guests. There are plans in the works to renovate poolside rooms into cabana-like, beach-level accommodations with residential-style patios and fire pits.
