From checking in to checking out everything ran perfectly at this hotel. We got the requested interconnecting rooms which were clean with a lovely balcony and a view of the sea. The beds were very comfortable and the minibar included useful items such as lip balm as well as the usual drinks etc. The pool area was well run and... More

Dear rachelp884 – Thank you for posting the review, and I wish you knew in advance that as a member of our Fairmont President’s Club you receive complimentary wifi…then maybe we would have gotten five stars!!

My family just returned from a week long stay here and wish we could stay more.

Location and service were excellent and the food was fantastic! Only issue at all was some noise from the nightclub but even though we were directly facing the nightclub the noise was not any issue for us with the patio door closed.

Dear Carr1965 – Happy belated birthday! My apologies for the disappointing experience…having champagne and strawberries waiting for you upon arrival is not a difficult task, and I am so sorry about the delay in getting them to you. Regarding Fig, we only have a prized three tables outside and therefore do not guarantee outdoor seating for anyone. During the summer... More

We loved this hotel from the quality of the welcome and the friendliness of the staff. All the information of our reservation was accurate and the rooms were excellent overlooking the pool area. We took both lunch and breakfast at the Fig Restaurant which was also great. The pool area was well managed with towels and cold water on tap.... More

My family of 5 just returned from a week long stay here and it was nothing short of spectacular. Some of the rooms are a bit dated but many have been renovated.

Very nice and trendy hotel. The place to be. Expensive, but here it happens. and all the hotels are expensive in Santa Monica. It's a very nice location, right next to the city centre. There is a smoking area in the garden too.

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.
