All you need to know

Formerly known as The Embassy Hotel Apartments, the Palihouse Santa Monica is a boutique beach lodge ideally situated in Santa Monica. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, the hotel is only a few minutes’ walk away from key attractions such as the Third Street Promenade, Farmer’s Market and the Santa Monica Pier.

This hotel has been in continuous operation since 1927 and this rich past is apparent in the Moorish-influenced Mediterranean Revival Architecture. The hotel existed when Santa Monica was the last Los Angeles rail stop! Even though it has a few years on it, the property has been methodically maintained. This careful upkeep has given it a renowned status as its elegant exterior ornamentation, lush courtyards and gracious lobby continue to attract visitors from all over the globe.

The hotel is stylish but low key and offers plenty of space for relaxing with a cup of tea and enjoying a meal. The classically decorated rooms feature a 40-inch flat-screen cable TV, work desk, a seating area, guest bathrobes and ironing facilities. Guests can even book a spacious studio or suite with a fully equipped kitchen. Any guest looking to expand his horizons and stay and at a non-traditional hotel, will love vacationing here.
