Where to Stay: Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

I could tell you about how the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel is a luxurious beachfront hotel that's worth a visit because of its seaside pool and rooms with views of the Pacific Ocean. Or how the beach brasserie Ocean & Vine is delicious because the chef uses fresh ingredients from the local farmer's market. It's all true, and it's all awesome. But this post is about what's really important - a lending library where you can literally check out the latest in designer fashions.

Yes, the Loews Santa Monica Beach has an onsite Fred Segal boutique with a collection of on-loan jewelry, purses, sunglasses and other must-have accessories. An opportunity to experience one of Los Angeles' iconic shopping destinations, the Fred Segal lending library is where you can borrow everything from designer reading glasses and cufflinks to the trendiest cocktail rings and clutches.
 
Items range from a $10 children's book to a $500 silver evening clutch. There's also a selection of embellished scarves, layered necklaces, chunky bangles, aviators and more. The service is complimentary for guests who purchase a suite at the hotel. At this time, the service is unavailable to guests who book a regular room.

  1. I was trying to comment but I don't think it worked - I live in Santa Monica and can't wait to check out the cafe there now!

  2. One of my dear friends lives near Santa Monica and I take any excuse I can get to visit her. There's SO much to see and do there, and I especially love the collection of hotels in the downtown area. Let me know how the cafe is!
