The location is ideal. An easy walk to the pier and the promenade. They have BMW bikes available to guests to use. Housekeeping was wonderful, never missed a turn down service. The accommodations were lovely and fresh. I would stay there again. The only disappoint was the limited pool chairs and the number of guests who 'save' them early but... More

From the amazing views from the balconies of Santa Monica beach and pier to the stellar service from all staff my stay was another fantastic trip to LA and would most definitely return. Ryan at Concierge always knew my name and was so helpful with my many luggage trips. Mark at the Lobby bar and Oscar at Fig's engaging conversations,... More

Great hotel and great staff. It is the only place to stay in Santa Monica--convenient to everything and it can provide all things for all people. From the complimentary bikes to the food/service the hotel makes you feel like you are home and it has a great buzz.

This hotel is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Everything will be catered to your needs. When you arrive there is a note from management and a basket full of fruit and cookies. The food is expensive but it is worth it. The location Is mins away from the promenade and the world famous Santa Monica pier.... More

Although we had a problem with our rooms on the first night of our stay I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Fairmont with my family. It was my Dad's birthday and also my 30th and we received not one but two cakes delivered to the rooms. Also on our arrival, we got speaking to a... More

We stayed over the long weekend in the Premier Ocean View King of Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows. What an amazing view of the Santa Monica Pier from the balcony of our room. The room may be small for some considering the square footage; however, we did not feel-like we were in a small box. The hotel has everything you... More

Dear maximus217 – Thank you for the rave review! We agree that the size of the room doesn’t seem to matter when you are standing on your balcony taking in that gorgeous view. Since you seem to be from the area, we hope to welcome you back for your next staycation! No need to wait until Labor Day! Carly Skinner... More

Excellent location and views. Food was delicious and staff was very professional and accommodating. The location is within one block of the ocean and stores. The hotel staff was trained to make our stay as wonderful as possible. We will return for another stay.

My wife and recently spent 3 nights at the Fairmont Miramar for a short vacation. The location right on the Santa Monica waterfront is spectacular. We had a 6th floor room in the Palisades Tower with a lovely, unobstructed view of the ocean from one side of the room. The room itself was spacious with plenty of storage including a... More

Dear Ted P – Thank you for the honest and thorough review. I’m sorry we couldn’t impress you despite our best efforts. We are constantly updating our property (the ocean air does indeed have an effect on finishings), and we have the corridors of the Palisades Building scheduled to be renovated towards the end of the year!

Stayed three nights. Expensive but within reason for Santa Monica waterfront. Room fairly typical Fairmont room. Service was excellent in every respect. Have never had bellman arrive so quickly for assistance with luggage. Car valet and housekeeping equally good. Only disappointments were minor. Stain on sofa cushion in room was a bit of a turn off. Similarly on balcony furniture.... More

This hotel offered the typical top notch Fairmont style service. Our visit here was the perfect location to experience Santa Monica. Will definitely stay again if we return to the area! The only suggestion for improvement...upgrade the sofa beds in the suites.

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.
