Santa Monica enjoys pleasant temperatures almost year round, so there’s no real best time to visit Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. The many activities available at the hotel — from treatments at the newly refreshed Ocean Spa & Fitness to the expanded mixology menu at the lobby bar to scores of diversions for kids — make it a draw even in the cooler months. It really depends on your comfort level with crowds and tourists, who descend on Santa Monica in full force July, August and September. For those who follow the sun, the main month to avoid is June, when the gloomy marine layer hangs heavy over Los Angeles’ beach cities.
