We have stayed at this hotel before so were very much looking forward to visiting again. This visit started badly at reception when the male receptionist informed us that we had a double not the king sized room we had requested, he had nothing on file at all, we told him we were Loews regulars having stayed many times at...

Just arrived back from a 10 day stay at this hotel. It was my second stay within two years. I re booked the hotel for this year for its location and pleasant previous stay last summer. Unfortunately I can't give it as good of a review as I thought I would have. Upon my arrival at the hotel, I checked... More

Spectacular view, great food, and attentive staff. The Santa Monica Pier, outdoor shopping mall, beach, and unique restaurants are all a short walk away. Every time we needed a cab, the valet had one for us in minutes.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our stay at LA! The place was brilliant! Huge rooms and great cleaning staff who were on top of the rooms! We couldn't have rated the hotel anymore! We have breakfast at the hotel twice and although it was pricey it was excellent! The only thing we would be able to... More

Stayed here for a week in August with my teenager daughters. The location of the hotel was great with access to the pier, bike rentals, beach and shopping. The staff was very helpful and nice, they tried hard considering the limitations of the facilities. The rooms are felt worn out but that was ok because we were there for the... More

I opted for the non-ocean view room and still had a great view from the patio of the Californian sunsets. The view from the bar and pool area of the Santa Monica pier is great. Location wise perfect. Great stay.

Only been here a day so far, but been welcomed really well by all the reps that are here. Entertainment is amazing and I was brought on stage to dance with the entertainment team. Would love to know Amy's surname from the entertainment team? Her customer service was amazing and we gave her a great send off for the end... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. On check in the staff at the front desk were very unfriendly. We had to wait 30mins for our reservation to come through to the hotel and instead of apologising for the inconvenience they made us queue another 2 times to see if the confirmation had come through rather then letting us...

Except for the late checkin , upon arrival to our room , we were very happy with the pool and ocean view. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Free car service was a bonus.Great location. Would consider visiting again.

Everyone at this hotel is top-notch, except for the people at the front desk and their management. The front desk staff the night we checked in was horrible. We reserved and paid for two (double) beds with a view. Prior to arriving, I called three times to make sure our room was booked appropriately. I have never been here, and... More
