Perfect location; great ambience and superlative service. Upgraded to ocean view at checkin and great concierge treatment. Complimentary car service for shopping and free use of bicycles. Costly food but top shelf. Only drawback is overcrowded pool's lack of seating

It is an elegant hotel but it pretends to be more then it is for real! The room service is too slow. In the principal corridor, before the elevators to the rooms, it was a terrible bathroom smell!!!! Every morning! I was astonished about the door man and parking man behavior!!! So cheeky expecting the tip!!!! Embarrassing!!!! Obviously all the... More

Lovely decor. Staff friendly and I really liked their cocktail selection. Perfect location, right on the sea front. Bed was comfortable and there were lovely views over the ocean. I also loked there were few shops in the hotel with good selection of different essentials.

We stayed at the Fairmont for 8 nights in a ocean facing room, small room by our standards, despite the size of the room the hotel was what we were looking for. Staff friendly and helpful, position by the beach, great, we were concerned by other travellers reviews about the noise of the night club, no problem for us in... More

We love the Fairmont because it is in Santa Monica. Right by the ocean, 3rd street promenade and many other attractions. Try and book a renovated room (they are the Ralph Lauren style rooms in the back wing of the hotel) and don't stay in a room in the front wing above the night club. The night club is very... More

You will be taken care of here. Beautiful property, warm, accommodating staff, cool bungalows. I was here for work, had only one hour of free time on Sunday morning before my flight home and I really wanted to visit the farmers market. The concierge arranged for the house car to drop me off and pick me up in an hour.... More

This hotel's services were great! The very best thing about this property is their very friendly and very accommodating trip planning assistance we received!

everything about this hotel was terrific. Comfortable beds, staff was super helpful, restaurant was very good . Because the hotel sits high above the beach, its a good distance from the ocean, but they have a complimentary jeep ride down to the beach. One evening the bar adjoining the cottages was pretty noisy. If you want to avoid this you... More

We stayed there for 5 nights in two connecting rooms at the 8th floor. We had a very nice view on the ocean. Very calm. Very modern rooms. We had two balcony from where you can enjoy the view. Very close to the Santa Monica Pier and the third promenade so you can enjoy those places walking around. Good service... More

The Fairmont Miramar is a nice hotel, but may not be the most family friendly option, particularly on the weekends. My 8 yr old daughter's primary request was to spend time swimming, however, the pool was so crowded on the weekends that we were unable to find lounge chairs close enough to safely watch her. In addition, the beach service... More
