The rooms at Oceana Beach Club Hotel might make you forget that you are staying at a hotel. They are chic versions of the family summer beach house, outfitted with a plasma HDTV, floral upholstered seating, whitewashed built-in furniture, walls painted in cheery pastels and cool, comfortable beds decked with Frette Egyptian cotton sheets with contemporary floral accents. While the vibe here is generally one of being unplugged, generous in-room work areas, iPod docks and high speed Internet service keep you as connected as you want to be. Of the Santa Monica hotel’s 70 rooms, 58 spacious suites either face the ocean or the courtyard or have little extras like games and game tables. The Signature Ocean View Suite offers all-around bliss with a deep soaking tub and a balcony to watch the sun set over the sea.
