More Room Types

Palm trees and flowers surround The Ambrose Hotel in Santa Monica -- known for its sustainable practices, as the first green certified property in the city, and dedication to well-being.

While not in the heart of all the action, this well-priced hotel is only a 7-minute drive from Santa Monica Pier, with its standout Ferris wheel and aquarium. Bike hire is free (available on a first come, first served basis), and there are a multitude of restaurants to explore in the area. Later on, head across Ocean Avenue to Santa Monica State Beach, which is also near the popular shopping area of Third Street Promenade.

Back at the hotel, Frette cotton robes are snuggle-worthy after time spent working out at the 24-hour fitness centre, where access is complimentary. Other included perks are an all-natural continental breakfast with coffee, Wi-Fi access, and a London black cab shuttle that will take guests anywhere within three miles (subject to availability, excluding the airport).

There is no on-site restaurant but 24-hour room service is available from Rustico Catering, providing healthy dining options. Sample a caprese sandwich or margarita pizza, along with any number of organic coffees.

All rooms have Italian linen, mini bars stocked with healthy refreshments, and recycling containers. Upgrade to a King Premier Room or higher for your own balcony or patio with city views.

From the press:
