We are locals in Santa Monica. From time to time we need to hand our home over to family or for work to be done. Loews is pet friendly big time. Fantastic. The staff at this hotel - are from very good to excellent. Roger at the Bell Desk is wonderful, most at the front desk very helpful. Valet very... More

This property is absolutely beautiful and the staff are all so professional and courteous. The view of the ocean is breathtaking and the rooms are extremely comfortable, clean and luxurious. I feel very important every time I stay at this hotel! Also, the location for shopping and restaurants is prime. Expensive but worth it.

A lovely hotel in great location with very friendly staff but the noise level from the pool is intolerable. Heralded on expedia as a "wellness oasis", the all-day loud rock music from the pool reminds one more of a spring break dive and I was on the 7th floor. It may be fun for the guests lounging there but it... More

Breathtaking views and the only hotel with an unobstructed beach/ocean view and no main road between it and the beach. It is light, airy, friendly and clean. The entire staff is genuinely happy, efficient, quiet and kind, which in turn made us feel immediately welcome and happy too! Upon booking, I told them my daughter would be celebrating her birthday... More

I have stayed at this Loews numerous times at it is always a pleasant experience. The fire pits outside on the deck make for a fabulous place to have a cocktail when you arrive. The view is exceptional of the Santa Monica Pier and the Pacific Ocean. Pay for the upgrade to an ocean view room as it is worth... More

I stayed here for Grammy weekend with my best friend. Let's start with the good - friendly and extremely helpful staff. From the doorman to the front desk staff and especially the bellman (Roger). We had our dresses delivered prior to our arrival and they promptly brought them to our room. The location is also fantastic, right across from the... More

When you look at the hotel's website the property looks very nice. In fact, the property is somewhat dated and not well planned. The rooms are small and the beds are not terribly comfortable. We normally stay at the Fairmont and thought a change would be good. I was WRONG. The hotel is expensive, the food is average at best,... More

We were intended to spend three days in Santa Monica before our long way home and after thorough investigation of Tripadvisor we decided to reserve the most spacious suite of Lower Santa Monica Beach Hotel because the size, lay-out, view and price seemed very reasonable to us. We were expecting the relax on the spacious terrace and admire the view... More

My first impression was not very good. I immediately wanted to go elsewhere. The place needs to be redone it is way overdue. We arrived early at 12:00 noon and check in is at 4PM. We could not get into our room until 4PM but as a courtesy we were upgraded to a better room. During that time we walked... 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.
