This weekend we packed our bags and drove North for a weekend stay at Santa Monica’s newly renovated hotel, Oceana. Normally when Rudy and I visit LA we stay at my sister Sara’s house in Marina Del Rey, but we decided to treat ourselves a little extra this time and it was a delight.
The staff at this beachfront hotel were so friendly and accommodating, and the property’s decor is visually stunning. Most of the rooms have glass French doors with an outdoor swing near the entrance, making for a very homey feel. The hotel is a perfect mix of luxury and coastal.
If you want true relaxation without any noise from the outside world, Oceana has you covered. The hotel is situated in the perfect location, close enough to walk to restaurants, shopping, and the beach of course, but still far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle of downtown Santa Monica. And if you don’t feel like walking, they have a complimentary house car for local excursions. We had such an amazing stay and there’s no doubt in my mind we’ll be back soon! Oh and quick note– if you happen to visit for lunch, order the pink spritz to drink and the fresh roasted turkey club, you will thank me later!
