“Cool Hotel Near the Beach”

Wonderful property with great sitting area in the back. Very contemporary decor. A few blocks to the beach and one block from great artisan ice cream shop, Sweet Rose. Front desk very helpful. Would stay here again.

We had high hopes given the location and photos of the Le Meridien, however upon check-in, we realized this former Sheraton, appeared to have a very average - at best - facelift. The rooms also appeared to have a low-effort facelift. All and all, the hotel felt very dated and tired. One good point is it had a decent location in Santa Monica, so we could walk to the beach and restaurants. Another good tip is that you can self park for free! If you are looking for a starwood, I would continue your search. This is solely based on the appearance.

Room Tip: Park your own car. It's next door and it's free.

I stayed there for 2 nights using my SPG points. I enjoyed the stay to the max. Staff are very friendly and they offer a free self parking. Location is excellent and the area was fabulous.
One annoying thing in my room was the curtain does not block the light and it was very difficult for me to sleep at noon. (see the pic)

On arrival, staff were brilliant, given a nice room on second floor, but our first night was extremely disturbed by noise coming from the bar and reception lounge as our room was over this area. Fortunately we were offered a change of room to the seventh floor, which was again a nice room although our balcony was small with only one chair but did have a ocean view. We found that the rooms could do with more sound proofing, as even in the seventh floor room we could hear our neighbours conversation!! I would like to express our appreciation of the very good service we received from Jimmy Avila (concierge). We also had some excellent assistance from Mr Eric Williams (Director of Group Sales) who found us struggling in the Business/Computer Room, trying to Book our Flight Seats Online, we were most grateful for his help.

Room Tip: Not on Second floor over reception/bar area

Great location to start the day with a good run or walk by the beach.

Renovated rooms, nice lobby/bar area and pool.

Free parking - if not available complementary valet parking.

Friendly and very helpful staff.

The only downside I found was that internet did not work well the three days we stayed.

I would definitively go back to Le Meridien Santa Monica for holidays.

Stayed April 2014

I stayed here spontaneously after rolling the dice on hotwire.com. it was a beautiful evening when we checked in. The rate was at least 50 to 75% off normal retail price and I felt like I was stealing after walked in the lobby and we found out self parking for no charge. The staff was so nice and friendly I was like I kind of want to work here. We had some drinks at the bar and they were reasonablly priced for Santa Monica. We headed up to the room and ordered room service, but our TV didn't work. We called maintenance and they switched it out and it still didn't work. The maintenance team then told us they would take care of our room service bill for free. We were like sweet, because it was about 70 bucks for a cheese burger, quesadilla and 3 beers. Our room was also spotless and our balcony had a nice view of the Santa Monica bay.

Staff seems happy, management is friendly. A gentleman named DJ at front desk was very helpful and went out of his way when concierge was busy. He helped us to our room. A housekeeper named Catalina was very helpful & friendly toward all of our needs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Los Angeles area.
