My family and I have been to this great Loew's Hotel location 3 times since 2008, always at Christmas time. The location is absolutely breathtaking and the room we had was a corner with 2 terraces, one overlooking the beautiful Santa Monica Pier, and the other facing the beautiful mountainous scenic terrain of Malibu, with a gleaming Pacific Ocean panorama...

this hotel is wonderful if you obtain an ocean front room. they have many weddings and events and the front desk is often crowded. It is right on the beach which is beautiful and fun. The restaurant had wonderful breakfast. The staff is polite and friendly.

Whenever friends and I go to LA we stay at the Santa Monica Lowes. Great location, great service and very welcoming feel to the hotel. The rooms are a good size and the beds are comfortable. Love the lobby. Highly recommend this hotel.

Loews offers GREAT service, GREAT staff. and is a GREAT hotel. We had an ocean view suit with a balcony that our little dog loved as much as we did. Walking distance to pier, beach, downtown, and restaurants. Can't wait to return.

I was a bit disappointed with the room size (2 doubles) and the view of the side of the Hotel California next door, however with the awesome SoCal weather I luckily did not spend much time inside the room. I also expected a nicer bathroom with more amenities; the tub was a bit stained and there was only one vanity... More

The staff was very pleasant. The rooms were fantastic. There were multiple different lounges for whatever mood you were in or the atmosphere you wanted. We had a buffet for breakfast and lunch with the conference we attended and everything on the menu was delicious.

We arrived at this hotel early from a long trip over from Aus, we were able to check in early and they even surprised us with a room upgrade. There is a great night room service menu which served us well with our jet lag. There was no additional unexpected charges just a pleasant happy stay on our long awaited... More

I stayed at the Loews Santa Monica during a work trip with a group of my coworkers. The hotel is in a fabulous location - with a little walkway out the back door that leads to the beach. My room was a decent size with a tiny balcony overlooking the pool. The hotel is walking distance to everything in Santa... More

I have stayed at Loews before in 2004 and had nothing but praise for this Hotel. This time, what a disaster. We paid a premium ($600+ per night) for a balcony King ocean view and it was terrible. The flooring was stained, the toilet seat wouldn't stay up, which isn't so great for a male, the internet service was shocking,... More
