We stayed for a week at the JW Marriott in Santa Monica recently and enjoyed it very much. The location cannot be beat - right down by the beach, an easy walk to the Palisade Park, Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street pedestrian zone, etc, etc. Great base for exploring and enjoying this special place. The staff were very welcoming, cheerfully... More

Le Merigot is in Santa Monica, right near the beach. Very bright, clean, comfortable lobby. Great front desk, particularly Israel. Rooms were clean, spacious. I'd highly recommend this place to a friend.

We stayed a few nights here on a family vacation and loved it. You are literally just steps from the beach and a short walk to the Santa Monica Pier. Our room was sizable and upkeep and decor were nice. You had to request ice from the staff and could not get it yourself - wish we could have. We... More

I booked this room for the JW Marriott name. In the past I've learned I can depend on a certain level of amenities and services with the JW brand. However, this was not the case with this JW. I am a member of the Marriott Gold Program, and exclusively stay at Marriott on my multiple trips through out the year.... More

Spacious rooms, great service from valet to front desk, steps away from the beach and Third street. It's a really great hotel if you're looking for a quiet location that is also close to all attractions. Can't wait to go back...

Stayed here for 5 nights for business. I have stayed at many of the hotels in the surrounding area, but never Le Merigot. It was a good experience, a little better than expected. My room was big and in good shape. Spacious bathroom. Comfortable bed. Good TV. I liked that the gym was open air. And there's a nice patio... More

Matt at the front desk did a great job getting us exactly the room we wanted. We had great views of the ocean from our deck. The pool is small, and the chairs fill up fast, so get there early. A fair amount of families were there during our visit, so it doesn't have the "scene" vibe some other hotel... More

I am a Platinum Elite Lifetime member and a former Marriott Corp. VP. Have stayed at this hotel in the past and had great experiences. I need to be in Santa Monica for medical procedures in July and have sent three faxes to the Front Office Manager and General Manager asking for any possible consideration on rate and location. No...

What a fantastic spot. This is a luxury resort property disguised as a corporate hotel. From the minute you check in until you see the views, you'll be amazed. Public areas are spacious, rooms are well-designed (you may need to negotiate a bit for a true beach view), and it is literally steps to the legendary beachfront and its endless... More

I enjoyed this hotel although I would have appreciated more of a view of the ocean for the price I paid. I had a suite with only a peak at the ocean. Overall the room was roomy, clean & quiet. Room service was average & they wouldn't bring me a microwave to warm up food which I thought was unusual.... More
