ABOUT THE PIERSIDEA Santa Monica Sanctuary


The Pierside Hotel inspires an easy come, easy go kind of getaway, where you can travel from bed to beach in a heartbeat. Located just steps from the famed Santa Monica Pier, our hotel is the perfect place to stay if you want to want a day of wild rides or laidback beach relaxing. 


You can spot our mural by American contemporary artist and activist, Shepard Fairey facing west towards the Santa Monica Pier. This cultural mosaic of Santa Monica features a woman representing strength and positivity, framed by a Pacific Ocean Park amusement park ticket from the 1950s, and nods to the skater / surfer history of the “Dog Town” days of Santa Monica from the 1970s.
