Main Strengths, Special Touch
One of two only hotels on the sand in Los Angeles. Originally built in the 1920s as a celebrity beach club, Hotel Casa del Mar has been fully restored and reimagined as a beach front retreat for the most discerning of travelers
A long Ocean Avenue, alfresco dining spots, pastel-hued hotels, palm-lined Palisades Park and the distinctive Tongva Park provide enviable beachfront hangouts. Ocean Front Walk, home of the Original Muscle Beach, still flexes its charm with a collection of rings, parallel bars and balance bars plied by bodybuilders, yogis and other assorted sun-worshippers. Bikes and skateboards drift down the Marvin Braude Bike Trail in an aimless procession of fun. Perched over the Pacific, the 110-year-old Santa Monica Pier, featuring the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel, the century-old Looff Hippodrome and the aquarium, attracts families, couples and friends each reveling in a delectable slice of West Coast nostalgia.

Hotel Casa del Mar was originally developed as an opulent private beach club in the « Roaring 20s « by Los Angeles architect Charles F. Plummer in Italian Renaissance Revival style. The original “Club Casa del Mar” served as an upscale hotel and beach club to the California elite. The Edward Thomas Hospitality Corp. purchased the property in 1997 and carefully restored the building’s exterior to celebrate its provenance and began a complete reimagining of the interiors to make the property relevant to the luxury traveler of the new millennium.
