Neighboring the resplendence of Los Angeles is Santa Monica, a beach town famed not only for its sands and shore but its boardwalk. In addition to the 3.5 miles of beach, the Santa Monica Pier is a famous landmark, sporting an amusement park, pubs, an arcade and numerous shops. (It’s also popular among Pokémon Go players.) Having opened in 1909, its a centenarian by now, but its neon arch welcomes 86 percent of the town’s visitors yearly.

We’ve selected five hotels for you, based on past customer ratings, location and pricing. Beware, however: Santa Monica’s beauty does not come cheap, especially as the summer heats up. Book early!
