I was there for 2 nights in mid Nov. Location can't be beat as it was just right across the beach and a block away from all the shopping and restaurants. I didn't use the pool but heard it was good. I made use of the bike rental (complimentary) and rode to Venice and back. I am a Premier level... More

This property is in a great location in Santa Monica. 1 block from the 3rd street promenade where a lot of shops, restaurants and street performers are. Also, in some higher floors you can have beautiful views of the pier and the beach. The rooms are very nice but small.

lovely hotel right in the heart of shopping area and close to the beach and the pier. The pool is in a shady area this time of the year that was the only down side I found but that may just have been time of the year

Stayed at the Fairmont SM primarily for its location. There are soooo many great shopping places (3rd street promenade, downtown SM, SM place mall), great eating places, and there's the superb Farmer's Mkt. In the summer months within walking distance. We had rooms in the old historic wing where the rooms are spacious (yet upgraded) than ones in the newer... More

The service from valet to in room dinning was amazing!!! i truly appreciate simple things such as hello and smiles and that's what I received at Fairmont Hotel. I truly appreciate the amazing customer service and simple conversations. How awkward is it when you walk into a hotel and no one saids hello and stares. I truly have to thank... More

This was probably one of my least favourite fairmont experiences. I think we just had an old, small room with no view to speak of. Grant it we were visiting during the Oscars so I am sure the hotel is probably at its busiest peek and good rooms were scarce. The Fig restaurant was probably a highlight for us. We... More

Very nice hotel, expensive restaurant but nice service and lovely staff. We had two suites in the Pallasades (?) side but despite other comments found these spacious modern and nicely decorated. A good location for shopping and sight seeing, car hire a must to get around. You can walk to the beach, about 10 mins but quite easy to do.... More

Excellent location with a very short walk to the beach and pier. The hotel is very nice but the rooms are a little dated, whilst our room was large with a separate living area I expected a higher standard for the price. We had lunch at the Fig restaurant which was really nice and all the staff within the hotel... More

I stayed at the Fairmont as part of a business trip and absolutely loved the hotel. The was extremely spacious and very well equipped - it had great views, very large bathroom and the Nespresso machine was a great touch. Something I loved was the gym - very spacious but what really set it apart from all other hotel gyms... More

It was the 4th time I have stayed at The Fairmont. I returned after 2 years to notice the rooms have been refurbished. Everything about the room was great. The bed very comfortable. The bathroom was small but satisfactory. There was a shower above the bath but the water pressure and temperature great. We only took breakfast at the Fig... More
