Hilton has just added its initial LXR house in the United States. For all those traveling to the Los Angeles place, this is a nice enhance to Hilton’s present luxurious property, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills.

Oceana Santa Monica (Hilton LXR)

Hilton has declared that Oceana Santa Monica will be the newest resort to be part of LXR Lodges & Resorts, which is Hilton’s unbiased luxurious manufacturer. The assets is signing up for the Hilton portfolio helpful promptly.

Oceana Santa Monica utilized to be unbiased. The resort not long ago underwent a $25 million renovation, and is now most likely the very best factors hotel in Santa Monica.

The 70-place resort is located on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, so it’s just throughout the avenue from the seashore. The resort has a few eating possibilities, which interestingly are only offered to lodge visitors:

  • Sandpiper is the hotel’s most important cafe, and it’s “reminiscent of a non-public seaside dwelling with a picturesque seaside backdrop”
  • The Veranda is the all-working day outdoor eating cafe
  • Sunset Terrace is the rooftop lounge, and it will even aspect a Nobu pop-up

You can redeem Hilton Honors details and absolutely free weekend night time certificates at Oceana Santa Monica. A typical space at the lodge appears to commence at 95,000 Honors factors per evening, and you can get a fifth night no cost when redeeming factors.

The hotel does have a $45 for every night time resort cost, which applies no matter whether shelling out cash or redeeming factors. As a stage of comparison, paid rates seem to be to get started at $500+. So this is a good use of details, but the worth isn’t necessarily that outsized (considering the fact that it’s not like prices are ordinarily $1,000+ for every night).

The normal area here is a king studio suite, which is about 500 square ft. That’s enormous for a standard space.

Why luxurious Hilton additions excite me

I’m generally thrilled to see Hilton incorporate a lot more luxury attributes, specifically impartial kinds like this. Traditionally a person of Hilton’s largest issues has been that its luxury footprint was restricted, even though this is an area in which the plan has been improving upon significantly.

There are so numerous wonderful implications for this with Hilton Honors:

In other words, I recognize the important standing that can be attained without the need of actually becoming “loyal,” primarily when I can use all those rewards at luxury qualities.

Hilton’s luxurious footprint carries on to expand, including qualities like the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos, the Waldorf Astoria Maldives, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach front, Zemi Beach front Dwelling, the Conrad Abu Dhabi, and much more.

Bottom line

Oceana Santa Monica is the most recent Hilton LXR residence, and also the 1st LXR house in the United States. The hotel appears wonderful, and is possibly the very best points hotel in Santa Monica.

Individually I’m not a substantial Santa Monica enthusiast. If I want a seaside trip I’ll go to a area where by there are true beachfront inns (meaning you really don’t have to cross a avenue). And personally I really don’t love the vibe of Santa Monica all that a great deal possibly. If I’m heading to redeem 95,000 Honors factors in LA I’d a lot somewhat ebook the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which is 1 of the finest metropolis motels in the US.

Any individual fired up to see Oceana Santa Monica be a part of Hilton Honors?
