We stayed at the Loews in July, for two nights on our way to Los Cabo. We like Santa Monica for its compact shopping area and proximity to the airport. We have previously stayed at the Loews Hollywood. The Loews Santa Monica is not as modern as the Hollywood hotel. We had a room on the 4th floor (which is... More

From the minute we arrived to the day we left it was first class service all around. Valet service was spot on and we were located in close proximity to the promenade. The lobby was spacious and modern in appeal and dimension. The huge screen behind the receptionist is a live feed of Santa Monica beach. It's a breath taking... More

What a wonderful hotel - the central atrium is spectacular. The staff here couldn't do enough for us. We arrived at 9.00am, as we needed to drop the car off at Avis, expecting to have to leave the luggage with them. However we were sent straight up to our rooms to our surprise and delight. The amenities in the hotel... More

Stayed here on the second leg of our honeymoon. Top spot to stay in Santa Monica, you can walk everywhere from here. Right near the pier, main shopping strips etc. Did not fancy the room view in just the standard room, but the hotel itself is quite lovely. Also the concierge was very knowledgeable.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
