I thought it'd be fun to try and figure out where the tourist(s) are staying.

I believe the vintage photo was taken from this property which is now the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
I think that the photographer was on the balcony arrowed below. I haven't yet mananged to find a name for this hotel (apartment building?), seen here in 1979. As Bristolian said, it's where the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel now stands.
