The Santa Monica Convention & Visitors Bureau and 15 Santa Monica hotels are sponsoring the “Extra Bedroom Program,” in which Santa Monica residents can receive discounted hotel rates from now until Monday, January 29th.

The hotels are in all price ranges from budget hotels to luxury resorts. Santa Monica residents and/or their guests can receive discounts.

To receive a discount, proof of Santa Monica residency should be presented when checking in at the hotel.

“The holiday season is the best time to enjoy the company of family members,” said Kim Baker, marketing manager for the Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“Whether you’re looking for an affordable option to house your guests or you’re hoping to reward yourself with a romantic mini-getaway, all you need to do is show proof of Santa Monica residency.”

To find participating hotels and their rates, visit the Web site at and click on the “For Locals” link. Reservations can be made by calling the hotels directly and asking for the “Extra Bedroom Rate.”

The Convention & Visitors Bureau also has three Visitors Center locations and a group of travel counselors available to assist out-of-towners visiting Santa Monica for the holiday season.
