A school of 300 ceramic fish crossing a lobby wall sets the tone at this stylish property, two steep blocks from the beach, near the Third Street Promenade, and chic Montana Avenue. The thoughtfully designed guest rooms offer luxurious comforts like high-thread count sheets, and a work desk with a view. In room gadgets are thoroughly of-the-moment: plasma-screen TVs, DVD players, Wi-Fi. Corner rooms have the best views. The Penthouse lounge is quite the scene on weekends.
