I recently stayed here with my wife and 2 year old. We had a lovely ocean view suite in the rear building overlooking the pool and bungalows. Whilst the bones of the hotel are older it's had an extensive refit inside with excellent views up to Malibu and down to the pier. There are many room types depending on your... More

Our was two story with a spectacular deck, sauna and giant soaking tub. Staff was incredible - on it and very polite. This is not a budget experience nor for the short of cash!... More

This is a lovely hotel in an excellent position for driving to all the attractions of Hollywood, Beverley Hills and the Getty Centre & Villa. We had a lovely room overlooking the sea in the new tower. It was rather expensive but we managed to get a bed, breakfast and valet parking deal which softened the blow a little! The... More

Stayed here on December 11th to 14th. This hotel had a great location however the food is not very great so you have to go out. The gift shop is the size of a closet and has nothing useful for a traveler. The lounge only has three good seats as the rest of the lounge is set up for breakfast... More

My third time at this hotel and I've never been disappointed in the service, facilities or view. Restaurant is excellent and lobby bar is very pleasant and relaxing. The view from water-side rooms is tremendous. There was a mistake on my bill, which I received via email after using the express checkout. It was resolved quickly and pleasantly after an... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in the country! The rooms with Ocean Views are the best. After a long day of travel, the room and hotel allow me to take a deep breath and relax. Consistently great !

First the good: -Desk staff excellent on check in. -Room small but very clean and nice view. Slept very well. Next the bad: -Deluxe internet at $15.99 is anything but deluxe. How come I get free internet at the Four Seasons or Peninsula down the road and it's better? Now the worst: -Valet parking is hapless. When I arrived 10... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Fairmont Santa Monica and loved the time, from being able to walk across the street to walk along the beach in the mornings and at sunset, to relaxing by the pool, to enjoying their incredible Spa (highly recommend), good breakfasts and great location if you want to be able to walk...

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.
