If the prices quoted were honored, I would have been a satisfied customer. In not honoring the price quote and incentive, I encountered a front desk person who could not be bothered by my concern. As a professional, I felt I was clear and courteous in explaining what must have been a computer error. I was simply waived off.

This hotel's location on the corner of Wilshire and Ocean Ave makes it convenient to walk to the beach and the 3rd St Promenade. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a bungalow at the back of the property. Loved the sauna and all the amenities in the room and found the room very quiet despite it's location near... More

I didn't expect to have booming bass billowing into my room after spending 700/night. They have setup an onsite dance club which results in some rooms being incredibly noisy until very late at night. This sort of noise pollution would be fine for a $40 a night hotel in Thailand. I called the desk, they heard is complaint many times... More

We normally stay at Casa Del Mar or Shutters. We tried Viceroy once and were underwhelmed. The Fairmont is amazing. The property is magnificent and it's located just a couple of blocks from all the great shops and restaurants. Service was incredible and our room, a Palisades suite, was gorgeous. They even put our children's names in letters on the... More

This is the perfect place to stay if you are in Santa Monica, easy to find with a car and not far to the Airport. Very close to the beach for a nice evening stroll. Was recommended a great restaurant to eat as the Hotel one was closed for a private party which was only 5 minutes walk

The Fairmont Miramar hotel in Santa Monica is indeed a very good hotel....adjacent to the beach and wonderful Santa Monica beach front walking paths. The service, the quality of the food, the quality of the facility is what one would expect for a premium priced hotel. The overall value proposition is good....just don't expect a bargain priced stay. The only... More

An excellent property ideally located to enjoy the best of Santa Barbara. Near beach, pier and shopping. Top service and a great room as well. We had a 1 bedroom. My wife has informed me, we are returning.

A really great hotel. Staff were amazing, location was perfect. It would be ideal if the hotel had rooms that catered slightly more for families. The restaurant in the hotel was great. The staff went above and beyond when our child was ill. Highly recommended!!!!

The title says it all, I've stayed at Fairmont two times in last four month on business. Go with another brand, I can think of three hotel brands, right away, that cost less and treat the business traveller far better

Top hotel in a excellent location innfront of Santa Monica beach. Comfortable, clean and with supportive staff. The room was clean, clear with amenities and a nice bed. The internt worked perfectly everywhere. Good food at the restaurant tough I found the breakfast price a bit expensive.

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.
