We spent two nights at this lovely hotel with beach access and extremely attentive, friendly service. Our room was comfortable, immaculate and with a partial view of the beach. We thought the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the dining room was excellent with both receptionist and server remembering our name. Easy to walk onto the boardwalk and beach where... More

Lots of character - not your normal cookie cutter Marriott. The rooms are a little on the small side but nice. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. You can walk to the beach right from the hotel - you are on the beach! Third Street Promenade is within walking distance. Great location for easy access to everything in... More

Beautifully decorated with beach access from the heated pool. My massage was excellent and relaxing. Splendid day in Santa Monica. My masseuse was Genie. I'll be back. Close enough to walk to the pier and restaurants on Ocean Boulevard. The Promenade with shops and restaurants is just a few more blocks.

After reading the reviews of this hotel I was 1) wondering if I made a mistake and 2) baffled when I arrived because it was wonderful and I have no idea what people are talking about. Yes it's expensive, it's a great location in Santa Monica. No, it's not directly on the beach but I didn't seen anything on the... More

Regular guest at Marriott Hotels worldwide, and so always look to the Marriott group first for consistent quality. The location of this the JW Le Merigot is wonderful, a short walk to the beach, and to the Santa Monica attractions and shopping areas. We decided not to hire a car for our stay but to use Uber (we were so... More

First a tip - park at the Santa Monica Civic Center for $5 per 24 hours. It's literally a 5 minute walk away and will save you the $40 valet fee. This hotel is decent. As other reviewers said there's nothing really special about it but the rooms are nice, pool is nice and can't beat the location. Staff is... More

I stayed two nights and had rented room for business meetings. Everything was adequate ... in fact quite good, but nothing special. However, at $300 a night I have stayed in better. Staff were friendly and provided great service. The room I stayed in was on the front of the hotel on the fourth floor which can be a bit... More

You stay here because it's a Marriott and a good, known entity. Location is a big plus - two short blocks from the beach and the Santa Monica boardwalk; three or so blocks from the major shopping promenade. Staff is super friendly and the coffee bar in the morning is a nice touch (not to mention, it's actually good coffee... More

We stayed here one night before starting our Pacific Coast highway drive. We often stay at the marriott chain for work, so had no problems booking it for a holiday as we know the standard to expect. Check in was fantastic, the staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful and the hotel is a great location, just 5 minutes to the... More

We decided to take a quick trip to LA for a weekend. The hotel is conveniently located walking distance to Santa Monica pier. It's not exactly o the beach but it's the same as if it were. I recommend asking what view you'll have. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Bed was great. The bar was great and 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.
