We come down to visit our son often. This is our first time at The Fairmont. It was very nice although a bit expensive. Make sure you go through a travel agent. We got valet parking ($40 per day) and breakfast included, also internet. When I booked on my own, those items were not included. The spa was okay. I've... More

We stayed at the Fairmont August 2015. We actually had reserved another hotel for the last part of our trip, but after staying at the Fairmont we cancelled those reservations and stayed where we were. The entire staff from the time we exited our car till we left were so friendly and helpful! We were on the 4th floor of... More

Very close to the beach. I visited for a wedding and stayed 2 nights. I can't say that I would stay here again but it served our purposes for sure. I wish we'd had more time here to really experience all of the amenities they have to offer.

I stayed at the fairmont on business and I just expected more. I got into the hotel around 8pm, coming from the east coast. The room was very warm so I turned down the air conditioning to 65 degrees and left for dinner. An hour later when I returned the room was still very warm. I called the front desk,... More

The Miramar has all the service and facilities you would expect for a 5-star property of this ilk and it is in a great location to explore Santa Monica. After doing the usual due diligence and research, here's the highlights (and lowlights) I had not expected upon arrival! First off, the hotel has a great beach service, with reserved chairs,...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights as part of our Honeymoon The hotel and location was great but the customer service was shocking. On our final morning at the hotel the maid knocked us up at 9am and asked us what time we would be checking out as she needed to get the room ready for the next... More

Dear granite23 – To begin, please let me assure you your comment did not fall on deaf ears. The person to whom you reported your dissatisfaction not only made the valet adjustment as a gesture of apology, but immediately reached out to myself and our Director of Housekeeping to make us aware. The issue was then addressed with the Room... More

The hotel is in a good location in Santa Monica, with great facilities such as own beach, bikes for hotel guests, a nice little pool, yoga classes & gym. However, our stay here was very disappointing: we were in the old building and our room was dated in its design, the 'double beds' were narrow and uncomfortable. The staff at... More

Dear utepanella2015 – Thank you for posting your review, but I apologize that you were disappointed with your room. We are as transparent as we can possibly be about which rooms have been recently renovated and which have not, and thankfully as we continue to make progress with our plans, the latter is the minority of our hotel!

This hotel is out of the main fray of Santa Monica, but still convenient. FYI is high on the bluffs next to Palisades park - to get to the beach you must take stairs down and the bridge that crosses Rt. 1. The grounds are beautiful and well cared for and the service is extraordinary. From the valet that offered... 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.
