Expert Review

Cape Cod in California? That's what you'll find at this seaside resort, 20 minutes (without traffic) from the Hollywood hustle and bustle. The 198 rooms reflect a whitewashed beach house theme with small balconies and inviting king-sized beds with a mountain of pillows. All units come with techie goodies like iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, and DVD players. Brunch at the Coast restaurant allows you to watch rollerbladers and powerwalkers passing by on the beachfront Santa Monica promenade. Rent one of the hotel's beach cruiser bikes and join them, or head to the pool area, recently redesigned by President Obama's White House decorator Michael Smith.
