I looked into severl places and really wanted "on" the beach. Only Casa Del Mar and Shuttes are really "on" the beach in this area and were both higher than what I wanted to pay. The Loews was a good alternative at a litte lower cost and just a small side road between the hotel and beach. Easy walking to... More

Have visited this property almost yearly and would have to say that the renovations to the outside have made it much more visibly appealing! The rooms still need a bit of work to match the outside, but the overall appeal of this place just makes me happy- The location is by far the best in the area! The service has... More

I can count on one hand how many times I've spent more than $600 a night for a hotel room. My wife and I sent her parents to this amazing hotel for their 50th Wedding Anniversary and they loved it! A rough start with a botched early check in, a fire pit room with a view of a parking lot/cars... More

This was my 2nd visit back to Loews Santa Monica and I wasn't disappointed. We had experienced the beginning of their construction 2 years ago and we were mildly effected with the balcony door being locked for safety reasons. Upon returning this past February, and the construction nearing the end, a manager was kind enough to upgrade our room selection... More

Really the worst hotel experience we have had in a long time. Expensive rooms, terrible service and awful construction noise. Have read previous trip advisor reviews we had even taken the trouble to ask whether the construction work was finished before arriving. We were told that yes, the pool renovation work was completed. They somehow failed to tell us that... More

I booked the Loews because I was running the LA Marathon and also because I worked in Santa Monica a decade earlier and of all the hotels I had interacted with, the Loews was my favorite. I wish it was ten years earlier. I'd gather this was the last time the rooms were updated. The furniture was well-worn and the... 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.
