We had a great stay but the first room they put us in was way below par and although the replacement was much better it was a still a bit rough around the edges. The communal areas are fab, staff were great and pool area and outdoor areas with fire pits are really nice. The food was mostly really good.... More

From the time we checked in when their systems were bad it's been a bad experience. Rooms not clean, dirty linen left inside, rude staff especially in restaurant. Still here and can't wait to leave!!!! Not worth the money... Definitely not kid friendly trying to be cool but they suck. Surprising Amex centurion recommended them to us and we will... More

Great location. Friendly staff. The frosted glass panes from the bath to the bedroom are a big negative if not traveling alone. Whenever someone goes to the bathroom at night it floods light into the bedroom. The location is good, close to the beach and the pier. Breakfast at the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced.

We went over Memorial weekend. It was a last minute trip. There were a lot of hotels in the LA area to choose from, but my daughter wanted something by the pier. I chose this hotel based on class-star rating (wanted a 4 - 4 1/2 star hotel), on proximity to the pier, & hotel checkout time (key selling points... More

Excellent experience! The staff are very friendly, service and food are excellent, as are the premises (gym, pool, shop, restaurant, reception). This is the only place I choose to stay at when I'm in Santa Monica. The location to the beach, shops and restaurants is absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this place and I will be staying here in future.

Steps to the ocean, walking distance to the pier, main streets for shopping, restaurants, bicycle ride away (or a nice fit walk) to Venice Beach. This hotel is a great sales incentive for team building with a good size conference rooms, fabulous location with an easy drive from LAX at peak traffic. Hertz Car rental at the lobby level. Coach...

If you've ever stayed at other Loew's properties, please manage your expectations because this hotel is definitely not consistent with that standard of quality/luxury. On the positive side, the lobby/restaurant area is still pretty nice. We thought the fireside lounge was awesome for evening cocktails after dinner on cool nights. However, the major negative is that the guest rooms/baths are... More

Came to Lowe's for a get away in town, and was very impressed by the front desk staff welcome, the view from the ocean view room, the access to the beach and pier. A very pleasant stay. We were warned that there was renovation work being done on the pool when we called to make the reservation; really great customer... More

Can not really understand the great reviews this place gets, the location is very good, one block from Santa Monica Pier and just seperated by a side street from the beach. The room we stayed in was clean but old and in general in need of an upgrade. Light switches, windows etc. everything seemed to be 20 years old. Very... More

Overall, a beautiful hotel in a truly amazing location along Santa Monica beach. By far the best part was the view of the beach, ocean, and mountains to the north. The bedrooms/bathrooms are nice as well. I would highly encourage anyone to spend the extra money on a room with a full walk out terrace. This is not a cheap... More

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.
