Loew’s Santa Monica Beach Hotel


Loew’s Santa Monica Beach Hotel features two exquisite fire pits. The first fire pit is in the Beachcomber suite.  The fire pit in this suite offers all of the privacy you would expect from an in-room fire pit.  It is mostly for ambiance and doesn’t generate the heat that many of the fire pits we are featuring.

The second fire pit is in the Ocean & Vine restaurant.  This fire pit table is large enough to accommodate a host of restaurant patrons at a happy hour or any other time of day.

The London West Hollywood


The London West Hollywood features another one of the rooftop fire pits.  They are a favorite amongst the Southern California luxury hotels due to their amazing design overlooking gorgeous views.

We love the design of this fire pit table for its low design and glass caging.  This inspires congregation amongst guests in intimate fashion.  It also lends to radiate much heat which allows for chilly nights to last much longer.  The London West Hollywood is one of the top on our list and a definite must see.
