Fodor's Review

Walk to the ocean side of the soaring atrium here and you feel like you're on a cruise ship: massive windows give way to the expansive sea below, sunny staff seems content to assist with your needs, and the slashy mural behind reception intuits a sense of place. Though standard rooms are on the small side, you'll find sunken bathtubs, marble counters, wood armoires, and flat screen TVs. Opt for one of the higher floor rooms for arched ceilings with skylights. You can order

lunch poolside while lounging on stylish chaises. Ocean & Vine, the hotel's restaurant, aptly pairs small plates with select wines and has a fun outdoor patio complete with fire pits. Pets go first-class at Loews: each receives a treat on arrival. The hotel caters to families as well, with in-room treats for the little ones. The spa and fitness center were recently upgraded and offer plenty of L.A.-grade primping. There's a sushi bar with an ocean view.
