Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel: Feature Project

Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Santa Monica is the perfect blend of sun, sea and surf and the Santa Monica Beach Hotel is at the heart of it all with beach side luxury.

 

We are lucky enough to have worked with the renowned Loews hotel chain on a couple of occasions and each installation is different subject to the style and location of the hotel.  We love the beach side location and the relaxed setting of the Santa Monica Beach Hotel. The Santa Monica Beach Hotel is recognized as one of the best Santa Monica Pier hotels where you can relax by the ocean view pool with a cocktail and enjoy the spa and restaurants. When you are ready to venture out there is the ocean right on your door step and you can wander along the Santa Monica beach and find out what Santa Monica has to offer.

Santa Monica Beach offers on average more than 300 days of sunshine a year and has some of the best sunsets on the West Coast. Unlike many areas of Los Angeles, Santa Monica is known as a walkable and bike-friendly town, so it’s easy to get around and experience the wealth of shops, restaurants and attractions like the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade.

Romantic Getaways for Valentine’s Day

If you haven’t already planned your Valentine’s Day forget the traditional roses and chocolates and whisk your loved one away for a romantic hotel stay.

 

Over the years Solus Decor have worked with many hotels to make their outdoor spaces a real talking point with the addition of one of our fire pits, which add warmth and lighting and in turn can’t help but create the perfect romantic setting. In honor of Valentine’s day we have put together a selection of our favorite hotels with the picture-perfect fireside setting to share with someone special.

 

Loews Hotel, Santa Monica, California

 

If you are looking to relax and unwind you can’t go wrong with the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica.  We love these romantic poolside cabana rooms.  Each cabana room comes with their very own fire pit to create the perfect ambiance for a romantic evening.  Enjoy the privacy of your cabana room whilst still having all the great restaurants and bars that Santa Monica has to offer and don’t forget the romantic sunset stroll on the beach!

 

 

Hotel Eastlund, Portland

 

Why not indulge yourself with some sleek city sophistication at the Hotel Eastlund in Portland.  The Hotel Eastlund offers roof top views of the the city with our firepits to keep you warm while you enjoy a cocktail on the roof terrace and if you fancy seeing more than just the views you can venture out and explore the vibrant city of Portland.  Portland is a hub of arts and culture and with the great selection of restaurants and bars you won’t be disappointed.

 

Fairmont Pacific Rim, Vanvouver

For something a little extra special why not treat yourself to some luxury in our home town at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver.  We are a little biased but we think the chairman’s suite is the perfect location for a romantic break with our Hemi Fire bowl taking prime position on the private terrace.  The hotel has exquisite dining, a great cocktail bar, spa and with rooms like this you can’t go wrong.
