Very nice hotel, rooms were average size and beds were small...not queen size. Location is excellent and we were upgraded to ocean view...highly recommend. Hotel offers free bike rental and the staff are very friendly.

Dear looking4sun09 – Thank you for your review! Sorry to hear about your disappointment with the room and beds…for future reference we have a wide variety of suites which much larger floorplans, and our full-size beds are only featured in our double bedded rooms – all other rooms have kings. Hope to welcome you again soon! Carly Skinner Director of... More

The Fairmont Miramar is superbly located. Directly across from Pacific Pallisades Park and from miles and miles of beach, beach/cliff top walking/cycling and other activities. It is also within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants of all styles and price range. The later is a good thing because the dining options at the Miramar are limited and while our dinner...

It was folly of me to have high expectations for my Fairmont stay. The extreme noisiness of the "bungalow" rooms is ubiquitous here. Three nights found me in 3 different rooms- because each one was bad. My first {"bungalow"} room fronted the open air patio- where one can here visitors & guests comingling long into the night. The room itself... More

Dear xerophytic – Well, it doesn’t sound like there is much I can do or say in response to your review. As you stated, these are your personal opinions, and we actually have a high number of loyal guests who refuse to stay in any room other than the very bungalows you have found such fault with – some requesting...

Our New Year’s Eve Plans were totally ruined - The hotel lost power around Midnight Dec 31st- power came back around 4pm and the hot water/heat was not working at 5pm - The Area was going through a cold spell- the outside temp was 45 degrees in southern California- So that didn't help matters - We had to shower and...

Dear CastleNYC – To begin, my sincerest apologies if you thought the conversation we had was any type of argument! If I recall, we were able to discuss your concerns and agree upon fair compensation for the inconveniences you experienced (regardless of whose fault they were) I will also apologize that you felt our staff did not do their part...

Good location. Bungalow was comfortable - if a little dated. Kind of pricey for what you get but not beyond the pale. Didn't try the food or room service, but found plenty of options nearby. Great concierge.

This was our first stay at this Fairmont Property! We can't say enough about how wonderful the staff was! The property is absolutely beautiful and a great location to all you would want to see and do in Santa Monica! The rooms are very comfortable, clean and beautiful. We will definitely come back to this property.

Outstanding professional staff--courteous, helpful, friendly. Beautiful hotel with great beach views. Our only complaint was the very high prices for food and drinks in the lounge and restaurant, so I hope that you have deep pockets. Other than that, our five day experience was great.

Dear JV – What fantastic comments about our staff! That means so much, and is so motivating for our team to hear from our guests. Over a five day stay you must have interacted with just about everyone, so it is wonderful to know we were able to impress. See you next time! Carly Skinner Director of Rooms More

My wife and I had a great stay at the Fairmont over New Years Weekend. The service is great - they have coffee out at 445am which is a big plus for me! The bellman Ray was fantastic: friendly, knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful. The views from the rooms in the tower were amazing. The rooms were nicely decorated and the... More

We've visited Santa Monica many times but for some reason hadn't stayed at the Fairmont before. We'll definitely stay there again - this is an excellent hotel. The location is great, with easy access to Third Street as well as Ocean Avenue and the pier. The staff, as others have noted recently, are excellent - extremely professional and accommodating. I...

If you have never experienced special hotel service, this would be a great place to start. I have travelled around the world and stayed in many top hotels and yet this hotel has done something that is intangible and yet extremely professional. (to be admired) The intangible was that you felt you were always being taken care of and listened... 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.
