I was actually enjoying my stay: The check in staff was extremely amiable and caring. An asian female (I forgot her name). Super friendly. Another gentleman literally walked us to the pool area to show us where it is. The grounds are picturesque with partial views of the ocean. The rooms are actually decently sized. And the beds were heavenly.... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and I am pleased to hear that you had a great arrival, but disappointed that our hotel was not able to live up to your image of the JW Marriott brand. We are a luxury boutique hotel, which may differ from other JW Marriott’s you have visited. I understand noise... More

Great location right by the beach (many of the rooms have at least a partial ocean view) and close 15 minute drive to the airport. Walking distance to many restaurants and shops, as well as the pier. Cannot say enough good things about the service here. The bellmen and front desk employees were the best -- super friendly and attentive,... More

Very nice location with easy access to the beach and Santa Monica. LAX is a short drive away. Nice patio bar / lounge. We hosted a business meeting here. Everything about the meeting was good except for the AV, which we had some problems with, some of which may have been our own doing. The big standout to me was... More

I was trying to decide where to stay in LA area and plumped for here swayed by the JW tag. This hotel is not a JW standard far from it, I've stayed more than 800 nights in the various Marriott chains across the world and was not impressed with this one. It's main selling point is it's location so from... More

Was impressed with the whole staff, everyone was attentive and polite. Found out past manager was not doing his job. New Sheriff in town. Could not say one bad thing about hotel staff. Dining room was the same, had breakfast there daily, everyone one the mark. Past Reviews do not count, Stay here.

We chose this hotel based on the location. When we are the reservation, we were told that the Junior suites were not available, so we booked adjoining rooms for our family. When we arrived, we noticed that the hotel was obviously doing some renovations. Our adjoining rooms had obviously just been completed because there was drywall dust still lingering between... More

While I did not have an ocean view, I did have a lovely view of the patio. Quiet, comfortable and close to the beach, this hotel has long been a favorite. Talk a stroll out onto the beach in minutes to watch surfers, runners, and strollers. See the Santa Monica Pier or take in a sunset. I have stayed here... More

Other than the guest rooms, Le Merigot feels more like a small, independent hotel than a JW Marriott, and that is meant in a positive way. While other JWs are more imposing and lavish, this fits its upscale/beach location very well. It is located on Ocean Avenue, just a block from the Strand and the beach (many rooms have views,...

We stayed at this hotel while in Santa Monica and very much enjoyed our stay. This hotel is in a great location, a block from the beach and very near the 3rd street Promenade in Santa Monica. We loved the location and the smaller, boutique style hotel. This hotel, however, does not really seem like a JW to me. The... More
