Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel
Santa Monica, California
LPA completed an upgraded modernization for Strategic Hotels and Loews Hotel and Resorts, a Santa Monica Beach and Pier resort, which included suites and guest rooms of varying sizes and totaled 4,793 square feet. By opening up the wall between the restrooms and bedrooms with a transparent glass shower, light shines throughout the entire room, allowing for views of the Santa Monica beach and pier.
The soft, neutral palette creates a warm retreat for guests by bringing the beach scenery into the space. To meet the challenge of varying existing ceiling heights and soffits, six-inch white oak wood veneer soffits were dropped over key focal points to allow additional lighting options. Fixtures and furniture throughout the spaces are sleek and modern, yet comfortable and inviting. This design will be rolled out to the remaining 300 rooms on a rotating basis.
