STAR PATRONS Ashley Olsen, Ewan MacGregor, Brendan Fraser, Governor Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
THE SCOOP Nestled in an easy-going neighborhood, this chic little hotel (it only has 70 rooms) instantly makes you feel at home. Once a condominium complex, the recently renovated suites are spacious and crisp with balconies that overlook the Pacific. Guests can easily walk to the beach, or bike to trendy Montana Blvd for a meal and shopping or simply relax on-site over a poolside lunch (shoes not required).
WHAT TO ORDER Order the Oceana Lemonade made with fresh watermelon ice cubes, $14; or get infused with the hotel’s summer Skyy popsa flight of five vodka popsicles: cherry, grape, raspberry, passion fruit and citrus for $15.
