When checking in, receptionist got onto the phone to offer another guest an extension to his stay, presumably in the room that should have been allocated to me! He then told me that he was upgrading my reservation (I had booked a luxury room with best ocean views). The 'upgraded' room was at the back of the hotel with views... More

We just got back from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We booked the Firepit suite as the beach views on the site were spectacular. This is a sham! False advertising. The view from our suite was of a concrete wall, our so called private patio was viewed by everyone staying at the hotel, there were two chairs outside,... More

Room was nice. Shower great. Nice and powerful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Thoughtfully they brought me GF bread with my room service without asking. Great location. A slight niggle was that the room wasn't entirely sound proof. That said there wasn't that much noise outside so didn't cause me any bother.

We travel often to Los Angeles, and Santa Monica is our favourite place to stay. Having stayed at the Fairmont, the new Shore hotel and the Georgian on other occasions we thought we'd finally give Loews a try. We 'd been travelling a while in Europe and the US and had had some quite exceptional service. Here's what we thought:... More

Three night stay. Charged $552 per night. Air conditioner made horrible noise second night, had to turn off. Was supposed to be fixed the next day. Didn't work at all. Two sweaty nights of sleep. Hot water in bathroom sinks never worked. Stains on lamp shade. Stained carpet.
