The JW Marriott Le Merigot is located close to the beach, close to the Third Street Promenade, and close to great shopping and restaurants. This is an ideal hotel choice if you prefer not to use a car during your stay. Everything you will need is within walking distance, and the walks are themselves part of the charm of the... More

Great location. We walked to many shops and places to eat. Coffee in bar is excellent. Have an espresso. Rooms were clean, all staff was over the top friendly and helpful. Handed us water at checkin, loved the restaurant too. Had excellent dinner (amazing tortilla soup!!) and lovely banana walnut french toast breakfast. Perfect getaway.

I am very impressed with the service I recently received from the Merigot. The facilities are pretty standard, but the employees are what make all the difference. I am not from LA but was in town recently on business with some partners of mine and had the pleasure of meeting bellmen Jesus and Luis. They had great attitudes and went... More

We stayed two nights at the Marriott. All of the staff was so friendly starting with the bell boys/valet assist, to the front desk and concigere. They really made you feel like they were happy to see you and wanting to help in any way. The room was lovely with a view of the ocean. The only odd thing about... More

What don't I love about this hotel? My Company uses this hotel for all of our West Coast business trips and my husband and I are never disappointed. Ivana at the front desk was so pleasant and gave me a beautiful room on the 6th floor with a fantastic view. It was spacious and quiet. The amenities at this hotel... More

Last December, I brought my family here for a weekend in Santa Monica. The staff was fantastic but the rooms were dismal and blah. All of that has changed. Today, I stayed in a Jr Suite on the 6th floor and it was up to Par with most JW's. New couches, chairs, drapes, carpets, wall coverings, etc. The dresser and... More

Having experienced all flavors of the marriott hierarchical chain I must say that this JW isn't quite up to JW standards. The location is great if are looking to stay by the beach in Santa Monica. Service and amenities in general are not worth the money spent.

This Marriot was a lovely place to stay. Great location near the beach and pier. Not as elegant as I expected per the cost. Nice area to sit outside and enjoy the view. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Have to agreed that food and beverage were very expensive. A $15 martini was just not that special.

Casual elegance conveniently adjacent to the heart of Santa Monica. The staff and amenities augment the near beachfront location. Food and beverage, while pricey, is well done. Open air courtyard is well architected and provides a European feel to the property.
