Few places in the United States can provide you with sand and sun the way Los Angeles does.  If you are looking for a seaside escape from your job or a spring break beach destination, Los Angeles is the place to go. The following hotels are some of the few hotels that can truly describe themselves as “beachfront hotels.”

1. Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel– This beachfront hotel will take your breath away. With elegant beachfront dining and an ocean view pool and lounge area you can soak up the sun in the lap of luxury.  Begin your day with a sunrise walk on the beach and end it with the healing powers of a swim in the Pacific Ocean.  You won’t soon forget nor will you be able to stop talking about your experience at Loews Beach Hotel.

2. Casa Del Mar Hotel– Casa Del Mar Hotel is a historic grand hotel with views of the beach, the ocean, and the Santa Monica Pier.  The views are fostered by floor to ceiling windows and the close proximity to the natural elements.  The Bow is a unique porch dining and lounge experience where, aside from not feeling the sand between your toes, you feel like you are on the beach.  The luxurious pool and the bike path on the beach provide the options of relaxation or activity.

3. Terranea Resort– Terranea Resort, a Spanish-Mediterranean style resort,  provides an ocean view with Catalina Island in the distance.  The Resort includes over a hundred acres of coastal property filled to the brim with luxury and service. Terranea Resort features a nine-hole golf course, three pools, walking trails, and a beach cove with a secret cave.  At Terranea Resort you will feel a sense of escape that cannot be described, it can only be experienced.
