We are Marriott Platinum members and stay at a lot of Marriott properties. As for service this hotel is top notch. The location is ideal as it is just minutes to the beach and downtown. The rooms are very Marriott type rooms but clean and updated. We use points for most of our stays and sometimes we are treated differently... More

The hotel is really nicely located, just a step from the Santa Monica peer, and 3 min walking to third street promenade, it also has direct access to the beach. You usually get standard good service everywhere in Marriotts and Ritz, but the staff in this hotel is really great, nice and helpful (at the pool, at breakfast, at reception,... More

Stayed here last weekend during a rare So. California summer storm. The room was very large and comfortable. The seasonal drinks at the bar were excellent (recommending the fresh fruit sangria). Many bars and restaurants are in walking distance (shout out to Commons Ale House who has games on the tables like Jenga & Connect 4). Stop at the Lowe's... More

Had a wonderful time at the JW. Visiting from the Chicagoland area we wanted our little granddaughters to experience the Pier in Santa Monica & the JW was our hotel of choice. From the minute we checked it the service was fantastic. The staff couldn't do enough for us. I had read some reviews that were negative and was a... More

I stayed there with my 16 year old. It's a pretty nice place for the price point. The staff is super nice and helpful. All hotels in Santa Monica beach are $$$$. Thus is right next door to lowes hotel and less money. I ve stayed at lowes and here.... I like this better! One night was only 350.00 the... More

I had the chance to stay in rooms facing beach and street. Compared with other Marriott hotels, rooms are dated ... but if you face... More

Good location and friendly efficient staff but that it where it ends. The hotel is so dated and the decor has possibly not been renovated for at least 10 years. Breakfast a disaster. I have had a better choice of food at far cheaper hotels and the service by the breakfast staff is hap hazard and inefficient. If JW is... More

The service at this property was outstanding. From the valet, bellman, wait staff, front desk, and spa therapists. They went out of their way to help my wife and I feel welcomed and relaxed. The in house reservation manager Andrew upgraded our room which had a fantastic view of the ocean. The only suggestion or complaint would be the room... 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.
