Had a great quick business trip, the room was excellent. Upon arrival valet was nice, however my check in experienced with William was phenomenal, friendly, courteous and very professional. Restaurant experience was really good also. The bartender at the lobby was not so friendly, he was maybe having a bad day but people tried to talk and joke with him... More

Great location because it's walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and pier. Service is good, has a boutique feel, although at times, it's hard to get an upgrade with ocean view. I recommend it! Restaurant downstairs services good breakfast and the spa was a nice experience.

I stayed here in September 2014 and I would stay here again! I researched on Trip Advisor before selecting this hotel for my stay in Santa Monica. It was a choice between this hotel and the hotel next door. Both had extremely similar reviews, particularly the negative ones where if someone was unhappy with the hotel they were at, they... More

Besides its location and proximity to the boardwalk near Santa Monica Pier, this JW was nothing special and probably the most outdated JW Marriott I've ever stayed at. It's the type of place that travelers with long overnight layovers or people on business trips who want to stay near the beach would stay at, but it's far from memorable. It's... More

Dear Alyssa00, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at our hotel. I am saddened to hear that we did not live up to your expectations of a JW Marriott brand. Since we are a luxury boutique hotel, we try to offer many modern amenities while still retaining our original charm. This may differ from other JW Marriott’s... More

We loved Santa Monica! We loved the location of the hotel! We had a 3 night stay in late December 2014 between Christmas and New Years. No problem with the facilities per se. Smaller property but we knew that when booking. Clean and finishings were nice. Wonderful outdoor spaces and numerous sitting areas. Unfortunately customer service fell short. We read... More

Overall I really liked this hotel, and the staff went over and beyond to make our stay comfortable. I'm a Platinum Marriott member and stayed on points and was upgraded to a very nice ocean view suite. The facilities were very nice, typical of a JW. It's within walking distance of the promenade and lots of restaurants. The area around... More

As a tourist, location in Santa Monica can't be beat for a walking tour of the area. As a JW Marriott run hotel and one that is considered more of a boutique hotel, I was a tad disappointed. It appears a bit tired in decor though the beds were comfortable. Hallways and carpet were surprisingly drab. The hotel personnel were... More

Was here for a 10-day stint for work. The location is GREAT, and I'm glad I was there for work and not personally paying the $400 per night rate (plus parking!) Too much for what the hotel was. Pros: location. Whatever you need is within walking distance, and I value that highly. Cons: If you have a room around the... More

Was trying to find a hotel in Santa Monica for me, my husband and 2 kids (11 and 7). After hours of research and several booked and cancelled reservations at various hotels in Santa Monica, we landed on the JW Marriott. We couldn't have been happier with our decision. The room and grounds were fantastic, the location was ideal, but... 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.
