In need of a SoCal seaside unwind? A cozy beach town stay in Oceanside may be the answer to your prayers thanks to a new addition of The Brick Hotel.
Oceanside is evolving into something more than just a halfway point between San Diego and Los Angeles; it’s booming into a destination of its own. The recently opened The Brick Hotel reflects this transformation, paying homage to the area’s rich heritage through its commitment to contemporary comfort while maintaining Oceanside’s one-of-a-kind character.
The Brick Hotel’s story begins with its structure. The oldest three-story structure in Oceanside, the Schuyler Property, which dates back to 1888, was the hotel’s inspirational muse. When it was acquired in 2017 by a fourth-generation local family who have lived in Oceanside for almost 100 years, it was lovingly restored to match the building’s prior charm. The structure has been meticulously transformed into a contemporary boutique hotel that embraces its legendary history. For instance, the original masonry, exposed beams and bricks are still present throughout The Brick Hotel’s design.
Even the hotel’s name has a story to be told. The original brick, which had been seemingly hidden, was taken out, cleaned and then repurposed. The name The Brick Hotel is a reference to the brick exterior that was rediscovered during renovation.
A contemporary, downtown-living hotel with current design elements, cutting-edge technology and luxurious facilities, The Brick Hotel is a modern masterpiece despite the fact that the structure is steeped in history. Guests will be wowed by robotic renovations that allow for a successful getaway without having to lift a finger. Every room has a digital concierge screen that offers simplified Oceanside recommendations, excursion suggestions, hotel staff contact and more. Even self-check-in and check-out is made possible with the help of the new technology. Additionally, each of The Brick Hotel’s 10 guest rooms is individually constructed with a distinctly designed theme and high-end facilities; some rooms feature views of the ocean, while others allow pets.
There are plenty of things to see and do, all within easy walking distance of The Brick Hotel. From the Oceanside Pier to museums and theaters to dining and shopping, the potential for fun is endless. At the same time, guests will have access to the nearby Stone Beer Garden as well as the upcoming outdoor Succulent Cafe and Frankie’s cocktail bar, conveniently located right next door.
For dining and drinking made easy, The Brick Hotel itself houses the eccentrically extravagant Cococabana rooftop bar and the bold and flavorful Q&A Oyster Bar and Restaurant on the main floor. Stop by Q&A for charbroiled oysters drenched in Cajun spice, garlic-lemon butter and parmesan cheese. Then, head up to Cococabana for shareables and spirits. Begin your rooftop bar experience with coconut curry clams and Australian wagyu skewers in a tangy lime marinade before indulging in beer, wine or cocktails perched above the seaside sunset. And you must return for rooftop brunch on either Saturday or Sunday, or both! You’ll fall in love with the Caribbean Bloody Mary and stunning tropical fruit bowls.
