JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot

The French-themed Marriott Santa Monica Beach Hotel is a luxury resort in the best of settings: just two blocks from the historic Santa Monica Pier and a short walk from the Third Street Promenade on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica.

If you're hungry for California - French cuisine, you'll want to snag a reservation at Cezanne upon arrival (or booking), the signature restaurant at the Marriott Santa Monica. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.

There's also Le Troquet Patio Lounge, featuring innovative cocktails and delicious fare - the perfect place to stop by with friends or coworkers after a day of working or exploring Santa Monica beach.
