While living at AVEN, we want you to experience life above all else no matter where you are. There are a handful of Los Angeles hotels that make for the perfect staycation to continue that AVEN luxury life of yours. In particular, a Santa Monica staycation.


Santa Monica Staycation

Santa Monica Staycation

The Fairmont

First on our list is the Fairmont Santa Monica. One of our favorite things about The Fairmont is the location. It is just right across the street from the Third Street Promenade and Ocean Avenue. It is also just a short walk away from the beach and pier. Even more, it is right next to one of the hottest bars in LA, The Bungalow. You also do not have to venture too far for a delicious meal. If you staycation here, we suggest dining at the hotel’s Fig Restaurant or the legendary Michael’s just a few blocks away.

The Proper Hotel

Up next is the newest edition to Santa Monica and LA hotels, the Proper Hotel. Designed by Kelly Wearstler, the Proper Hotel has the most spectacular interiors. Unlike the San Francisco Proper Hotel, the Santa Monica Proper has a minimal, biophilic design to it making you feel as though you are on a beautiful island in the middle of the ocean. It also includes a rooftop bar with a great view of Los Angeles. And all of their bedrooms include Aesop bathroom amenities and some have a Bluetooth speaker!


Looking for a staycation right on the beach? Then Shutters is the weekend getaway hotel for you. Shutter’s is comfortable and luxurious and reminiscent of Cape Cod cottages. Each room opens up to a balcony with chaise lounges and a beautiful view of the beach.
