In continuous operation since 1927, Palihouse Santa Monica (formerly The Embassy Hotel Apartments) is an outstanding example of Moorish-influenced Mediterranean Revival Architecture. The hotel dates back to a time when Santa Monica was the last Los Angeles rail stop and travelers from all over the world came for seaside vacations all year round. The building has been meticulously maintained and remains renowned for its elegant exterior ornamentation, lush courtyards and gracious lobby. In 2001, the property was designated a Santa Monica Historic Landmark and in this spirit, we’ve retailored this one-of-a-kind urban lodge to conjure up the ideal pied-a-terre you’ve always imagined. Palihouse Santa Monica takes to heart that few things in life are as transformative as the people and places you encounter when you travel. Because when all is said and done, it’s about the experience. Not a boutique hotel and not a luxury residence, Palihouse offers the best of both. The fully furnished studios and one-bedroom apartments at the Embassy Apartments Santa Monica have many modern amenities that include complimentary wireless Internet access, in-room coffee, fully-equipped kitchens, cable TV with HBO, irons and ironing boards, direct dial telephones, vanities, air conditioning, balconies, CD players, and hair dryers. Constructed in 1927 and an outstanding example of Moorish influenced Mediterranean design, the Embassy Apartments Santa Monica dates back to the time when Santa Monica was the last railway stop on the Los Angeles train.
