    Santa Monica
    Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
    balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
    thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
    roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
    famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
    weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
    Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
    revelers scream with delight riding the roller

    Problems were not coming from outside. Noises caused by neighbours / thin walls and ceilings. So it all depends on other people staying in the hotel!
