I have to start out by mentioning that our reservation was not originally for Loews, but for another hotel near by. When we arrived at the hotel (sorry, I shouldn't mention the name) to check in, the person at the front desk informed us that they had overbooked and were very sorry for the mishap. The hotel apologized and said... More

The hotel looked good on the Internet and was recommended by our travel rep. Sadly it did not live up to our expectations. It's just up from the beach which makes the location great, but work on the refurbishment of the hotel pool took away some of the attraction. We were in a room overlooking the work and it was...

The Loews Santa Monica is one of the most, if not THE MOST, customer service oriented hotels that I ever stayed at. I've stayed at many 5 Star hotels and the customer service at this hotel outshines all of the others! The front desk personnel, valet personnel and concierge treated us like royalty and we're just your average travelers. I... More

Stayed here during the week starting 6 January. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations on their pool. Having never stayed at this hotel we didn't think this would be an issue, however, the pool is situated above the second floor guest rooms. The majority of the rooms were shaking due to jackhammers being used on the renovation. It was horrible!... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location and convenient proximity if you're using it as base from which to explore LA, the Hills and Hollywood. Loews tends to list its rooms on a number of aggregator websites and I booked our stay on TravelZoo which did not clearly state that the room rate was not inclusive of taxes and ancillary... More

Arrived at 6:00am after a 14 hour flight. This was not a problem for the staff who immediately found a room for us! The location is great; overlooking the pier and a short walk to downtown Santa Monica. The complimentary in room wifi was really good.

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.
