I booked this hotel as a treat for my family and ended up very disappointed considering what we paid. For families who love the beach this place is totally inconvenient. It's a very long walk to access the beach. We could schedule a ride but were at the mercy of the hotel's availability to shuttle us. One of the selling... More

I'm a Fairmont Platinum member for years staying over 50 nights a year. This by far is my worst experience staying with the Fairmont. It's nothing like Scottsdale, Monte Carlo, or the Savoy. They cancelled my reservation without telling me. Overcharged me by 3 nights. Charging me over $1,000 on my bill. If I didn't check my fairmont account online... More

We were in Santa Monica for a party. One night stay only and thought we would splurge for a nice room at the Fairmont where we could hang at the pool or the spa for the limited time we had available. When we arrived at 11am we were told we were upgraded to a Pacific Palisades Suite but the room... More

My husband surprised me with a short stay in this hotel for our wedding night and a couple of days after. It was beautiful! The staff was attentive, kind, and helpful. We got room service twice (hey--it was our honeymoon!) and the food was marvelous! It was a wonderful experience, and I hope we can stay there again one day... More

We recently stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights and loved Santa Monica. We had a room with ocean views and also overlooking the pool and it was lovely to sit on the balcony and relax although the weather was a bit cool for swimming. Our room was nice but the bathroom is very small but has nice amenities. As... More

I was visiting colleges in LA, and I stayed here for a couple nights with my family. The service at the front desk was lackluster, but once we got to the room it was completely worth it. This hotel is right across from the beach so the views are stellar. The atmosphere outside is incredible. There is a beautiful tree... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of road tip to California. Santa Monica is perfect place to stay as a base for exploring L.A. Hotel offers everything you'd expect from a Fairmont, great service and plush surroundings. Stayed in an ocean view room on the 7th foor. Had a balcony overlooking the north side of the beach...

The hotel is stunning. Having that matched by exceptional service was amazing. The Fairmont has a program to recognize outstanding employees, so we paid close attention to identify one to recommend. Impossible. Every single one was skilled at their job; and all went out their way to be warm and gracious. Arrival: - we drove our daughter's very dirty Mazda,... More

At the entrance to this really nice hotel is a fig tree, from which the on-site restaurant takes its name. However, it's not just another fig tree like the many that line the local streets. This is an old, huge and beutiful specimen that I totally failed to get a good photograph of - google it and appreciate it! The... 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.
