Santa Monica, Santa Monica
Across the street from Santa Monica Beach, The Beacon, built in 1928, transports you back to Old Hollywood. Lounge in an art deco cabana and dip your toes in the hot tub. Catch a beautiful Pacific sunset from the rooftop. It's your stay for relaxation. Each room features modern amenities with a classic touch — soaking bathtubs for winding down and a Roku TV to binge your latest series. Downstairs, the fitness room has free weights and treadmills. You'll have several hiking options nearby, like Los Liones Canyon Trail. Play classic carnival games on the Santa Monica Pier, or ride the only solar-powered Ferris wheel in the world. There are endless food options nearby, starting with the locally-sourced catch of the day at The Albright. From sunny beaches and state parks to Downtown LA, The Beacon has it all.
