The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce accommodation and lodging guide presents a list of the finest hotels, motels and apartments in Los Angeles. These accommodations serve as a great launching point for Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Marina Del Rey, Hollywood, Disneyland, Venice, LAX, Southern California beaches and the entire Los Angeles area.

connor“The chamber has been an enormous resource to enable our  hotel  in not only Santa Monica but nationwide, and with the  adept  leadership and friendship of Laurel Rosen at the helm,  many  doors have been opened that otherwise would have  been  closed. I  strongly recommend this chamber to any  business  that wants to  succeed especially in these  challenging  economic  times.”
