The Beach House in Hermosa has everything you want in a hotel. You’ve got the beach, well appointed ocean — front suites, fireplaces in every room, luxurious bathroom and did we mention the beach?
Built on the Strand in picturesque Hermosa Beach, 10 miles from LAX, it’s a homey hotel with the perfect location. Walk up the Pier for boutiques and restaurants, or on miles of beach and pick up a Volleyball game. Hermosa is also known for his nightlife so there’s plenty to do at night though we chose to uncork a bottle of wine and relax on our small patio. The separate bedroom and living room make it feel spacious and the built — in kitchen makes it handy for families.
Each of the 96 loft suites are designed to take advantage of the beautiful ocean views from both the living room and bedroom and 80% of the hotel suites have some sort of ocean view. The beds are custom made and exquisitely comfortable.
Though the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, they offer room service from nearby cafes and a complimentary Continental breakfast
in a sunny room off the lobby. (Each table has its own toaster!)
An Ocean-Front is $329 on the weekends; Ocean-view is $279; partial view $249 and Standard is $239 but there are always special rates
