First time staying in Santa Monica and this was a great spot on the beach with good service and food. My firm had a conference that was based here and the overall space was great. Wouldn't definitely stay here the next time I'm in Los Angeles.

Comfortable, convenient, helpful staff, nice location. I attended a conference there and enjoyed it! I was on the ground floor with an oblique view of the Santa Monica peer. There was noise outside the window because I was off a service driveway. If you're sensitive about driveway noise, then be sure to check that detail.

We were lucky enough to stay in a newly refurbished room on the top floor and it was gorgeous. Really loved how they set up the bathroom with the separate double basin area which really worked well for a family. The heated pool and spa were great and we enjoyed watching the sun set over the ocean from the pool... More

I went to Loews hotel on a family vacation and was more than impressed with the hotel. The staff were very helpful when you needed assistants and recommendations of places to eat, things to do ect. The location of course was also an added touch as to why the hotel is so good.

Do not stay here until the hotel has confirmed that they have completed their renovations in April 2016. There is constant, very loud jackhammering from 7am to 7pm every day. We checked out after only one night and checked into a neighboring hotel. This is a nice, basic hotel. There are much nicer options nearby where you won't be woken... 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.
