Courtyard Marriott Santa Monica Hotel Architectural Design

Located on 5th Street and Colorado Avenue, in the heart of downtown Santa Monica, the Courtyard by Marriott collaboratively designed with AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design is one of the key elements composing the new gateway to the city. The newly designed hotel will provide much needed mid-priced lodging, and is within walking distance to the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place Shopping Center.

With outdoor dining, a roof deck pool, bar/lounge, and a spa overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the hotel takes full advantage of its surroundings to create a luxurious experience for the guests. Street level retail space was specifically incorporated to interact with the public and engage in the activity along the street.  Additionally, the hotel will have ample meeting space, a business center, and a full service restaurant.

Designed in association with Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio.
