With its Mediterranean elegance, sweeping views, and steps-from-the-beach location, this hotel has been a local institution since it opened in 1926, when it attracted Hollywood types as well as World War II soldiers waiting to ship out. While many of the 112 rooms and suites offer ocean views and private balconies—and most suites have fireplaces—it’s hard to resist watching the waves from La Sala, the ground-floor lounge with its plush armchairs, terrace, and baby grand piano.

Room to Book:

The Whaling Bar, off the lobby, feels like a time machine thanks in part to Ray, the bartender who has been there for more than 50 years. Ask him to whip up a Whaler, the signature drink that’s similar to a spiked milkshake.
