After reading some reviews i do agree. The hotel was very nice though maybe not the expectations of a JW Marriott. Some of the staff i would definilely say meet that expectations and were fantastic! The valet and front desk staff awesome! Even sent up some strawberries for my niece's 16th birthday! Now if you need a drink by the... More

We have recently stayed at the JW Marriott Lima and Cusco in Peru which are exceptional hotels and worthy of the JW Marriott brand. So when we arrived at the JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot we were expecting the same. This is not the case. When you walk into JW Marriott Santa Monica it feels like just another nice... More

Stayed at Le Merigot for a week for a business trip. This location in LA is perfect, close to everything and you also get a sense of the beach. Staff was great, service was perfect as well. I really enjoyed the outside patio at night, great spot to meet with friends or business partners before heading out. I will continue... More

This JW Marriott is on a great location in Santa Monica. The staff was very professional, wait staff was top notch. Bed was very comfortable. However, we had a number of maintenance issues with the bathroom - and we let the manager know in full detail about it while we were there AND via email twice afterwards. Nothing was done... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed here for one night while touring southern California. We had a nice,very large room on the second floor. There was no view from our room. Though nice, I would not call the resort or room luxurious. The bathroom needed some updating. The staff was very friendly and helpful (a reason for my four star... More

It's a modest property overall, for a JW Marriott, but for my family and me, we appreciated the excellent service, particularly by a concierge named Robert, who was attentive and personable. The pool is fine, the spa small but clean, and it's a short walk across a side street to the beach and Santa Monica Pier. We had breakfast daily... More

We have just returned from a weekend visit to Santa Monica, staying in the JW Marriott on the beach. About all this hotel offers is the beach location. Our room had paint peeling off the walls, a hole in the wall outside the bathroom and just looked OLD. The lobby lounge smelled horribly of cigarette smoke. We had breakfast in... More

Smaller property than expected. Our room had a large veranda but it was inadequately equipped with comfortable chairs. What a waste of space and sun! The hotel is in need of renovation. It just feels... old. Not quaint or luxurious old but 'outdated' old. We had adjacent rooms with a door that makes a loud noise when you open it.... More

The outside of the hotel liked very nice so we decided to book it. The lobby was very nice and the service was great. Our room wasn't ready so we had lunch by the pool. The pool was average, no view of the ocean. There is a spa that seemed very nice. I was excited to see the room 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.
