We are a family of 5, 3 adults and 2 teens (13,15 yo). We are planning to stay in Santa Monica in July for 7 nights.
our budget is 300-350$ per night/room.
so, what is the best neighborhood for families ?
So that's two rooms at $350 a room? Or is it $350 for two rooms?
Not sure about your question asking for the best neighborhood for families in Santa Monica - all hotels are downtown, with a smattering on the outskirts. But the best hotel in your budget is likely Fairmont or Loews or Shore, if that's a budget per room.
Very difficult to find low priced hotels in Santa Monica in July.
