Whether you plan on checking out the Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Montana Avenue, Main Street, or Pico Blvd., be sure to first check in to one of the 25 hotels participating in this year’s “Santa Monica Extra Bedroom” program now through February 6, 2022.
Santa Monica residents now have the chance to check out all the things that the city’s visitors do annually, so after you’ve checked in to your hotel, go check out Santa Monica’s 3.5 miles of quintessential Southern California coastline and sit, swim or just relax at the beach; visit the destination’s eight great neighborhoods for shopping or dining with more than 400 restaurants with many offering al fresco dining experiences; enjoy open-air wellness events and activities; or visit several indoor attractions including museums and art exhibits.
The Extra Bedroom program offer extends to family and friends visiting during the holidays when space and social distancing can still be a challenge.

“Each year locals look forward to checking in to check out what our guests experience each day when they visit our city from world-class hotels and retail choices to Michelin star restaurants to award-winning beaches,” said Misti Kerns, President and CEO of Santa Monica Travel & Tourism. “The Extra Bedroom program is one of our most popular each year and provides residents with a respite in their own amazing seaside getaway. Of course, we strongly urge all our residents and guests to follow the ongoing health and safety guidelines, and to please travel responsibly.”
Santa Monica Travel & Tourism encourages locals and visitors to travel about the destination responsibly by familiarizing with current health orders, taking advantage of public and alternative modes of transportation and bringing their patience and good vibes to its beaches and local businesses. Buying local matters. For every $10 spent at a Santa Monica business, as much as $7 stays in the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditure (source: IndependentWeStand). Spending locally ensures that your sales taxes are reinvested right here in Santa Monica.
