    I think Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is the best choice with the adjacent Bungalow as a fun nightlife option. Shore Hotel is a privately owned hotel but don't let that scare you off. Oftentimes the rates are lower than they should be and the location on Ocean Ave is excellent. Great Mexican restaurant there too called Blue Plate Taco

    Shutters On the Beach is on the beach and walking distance to both Santa Monica downtown and the Main St area. They have a nice bar and restaurant there too.

    First choice, I'd go with the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. Vibe is good and their lounge Bungalow always has some action. Second choice would be The Huntley Hotel. Restaurant/club there is worth a visit too. Called The Penthouse. The newer Shore Hotel looks nice too although I haven't been.

    If you want to try a little further south in Venice, the Hotel Erwin is probably the hippest place in the area right now.

      I agree with the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows IF you can get a bungalow or a renovated room. We had an adorable bungalow the first time . . . but a really awful, old suite (better than the first one they showed us) the second time. Affluent locals fill the place on the weekend so get some front-end room guarantees if you're an outsider. We're from Dallas and *forgot* to dress in Prada, alas . . . · (0 likelikes)
