I'm a Los Angeles Local and I recently Stay-cationed here with a few friends. The room was amazing - spacious and clean and the AC works wonderfully! Beautiful balcony w/ hammock, table and lounge chairs with a peaking view of the ocean - so calming! The staff was overly accommodating.

My family stayed at this Marriott while dropping our son off at USC. Great location in Santa Monica--easy beach access, near to shopping and restaurants. Staff was consistently helpful and attentive. We had two rooms and we found a lot of little things that were just off for a place with a ~$500/nt price tag. Both rooms had peeling paint... More

I looked at all the possible choices before I was there. It turned out to be the right one. This is the best place we've ever stayed in LA. The staff was nice and friendly. Swimming pool was awesome. I will definitely stay here again in future.

I've been looking at a couple of the Santa Monica hotels for daycations. This property does have 2 cabanas and attentive spa personnel, but if you want a stunning view of ocean - not here - it's more blocked than the Loews or Shutters. Standard rooms. Pay for wifi. Decent size pool.

Hotel has the basic needs for a business traveler. Room is set up with business essentials. Used the restaurant for breakfast and was happy with service and quality of food. Staff are friendly and helpful. SPA is very nice and chill. My wife used it for a massage. People there were friendly. Pool is smallish but you can do laps.... More

We stayed here for three nights in mid-July before working our way North on the PCH. We have stayed in LA on three other occasions, but of the four hotels we've stayed at this was definitely the best. It is located roughly 1/3 of a mile from the Santa Monica Pier, and if is an easy walk of about 800... More

I stayed here for 2 nights while in town for a conference and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is relatively close to LAX, but plan on 45 minutes due to traffic. The property is very nice and well kept up and the rooms are quite large. I was on the top floor (6th) and I had a great balcony... More

I stayed here for five nights even though I'm a resident of So Cal and live only 30 minutes away without fighting any traffic. Arrived on a Tuesday and was checked in to a ocean view upgraded room on the third floor. This JW Marriott is category 9 which is the highest level - probably because it's located in a... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice, both times for different business meetings, and I must say that the property location is great. It's a quick walk to the pier and close proximity to great restaurants in Santa Monica and Venice Beaches. The lobby, lobby bar, patio, and restaurant are all well appointed and modern.

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.
