Where is there LA?
Santa Monica particularly, but I have the same question for LA & San Diego/Coronardo.

Only way to find out for sure is to google it. Lots of high end hotels have at least one or 2 rooms with one in the hotel, usually the pricier suites.

Never actually stayed in Santa Monica proper. I think Marriott has a few nice properties there.

Honestly I'm just not sure what the appeal is... I prefer one in my room.


Just saw this now lol, thanks for finding it!!

I ended up taking that suite, and it was really awesome. There's just something about sitting outside in a private hot tub 8 stories up overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Makes sense, just was expecting something fancier I guess. Either way I hope he enjoys himself.

I did, thanks!!

Yes -- I've seen that LeMSMonica suite, but when I inquired, they said that it's not possible to buy with points, nor a plat upgrade. Did you need to pay cash for that one or did they let you have it as a points plus platinum upgrade?
