“Free Valet !!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Stayed here for 2 nights, and i thought the hotel lobby and rooms were nicely decorated.
Bed were comfy and rooms were spacious. I liked how you could walk to the beach and restaurants. I would stay here again

This is a beautiful, well-located hotel with tons of amenities — and fairly well-managed. Beds are incredibly comfortable, the staff is attentive and friendly, the rooms are well decorated and large, and the outdoor pool and lounge is great. HOWEVER: on two separate occasions we found huge cockroaches running around our bathroom. The first incident involved a huge roach falling on my fiancee's head while she was brushing her teeth. Horrible! Still, we told management and hoped it was just a one-time thing, but a day later we encountered another large cockroach hanging out on the toilet paper roll. Took us a couple hours each time to get rested again, and thus completely erased every bit of relaxation from our vacation. Management explained this has been a recurring problem, and so I guess it became our problem we got inherit (and pay money for!)... As an SPG Gold member, I was very surprised to be comped only one of the two nights. ...Better than nothing, I suppose?

When I looked at photos of this residence, I was slightly concerned. It looked really dated. But in the flesh, this place is a winner. Not only has it been beautifully upgraded, but Starwood have clearly sent in the "A Team" in terms of staff service and good process. For example, valet parking is free; there is a complimentary buffet breakfast which can be redeemed against a la carte options. The public area's are well maintained. The gym is excellent. And it's all just a stone's throw from the beach, the pier, Main Street and Third Street Promenade.

On my next vacation trip to LA, this would be top of my list.

We stayed here as a family of 5 with 2 interconnecting rooms on the 7th floor. The rooms are nice and spacious and the hotel has a warm and inviting ambiance. As far as 4 star hotels go I would consider this property an excellent choice, I have stayed before in Santa Monica right on the beach however as this was a winter stay and more for exploring the city of LA I liked the location of the Delfina for ease of parking (which is complimentary BONUS points there) and access to main roads and freeways without the SM traffic congestion. The front office staff were friendly and helpful, Sonia was so welcoming to my kids at check in. We also had a situation where one of my children left her I Phone in the lobby lounge area and they located the lost item and returned it to us which I am so grateful for and appreciate their care and honesty. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as there are many fine restaurants in the area, I highly recommend Huckleberrys and Gjusta. All in all we loved staying in Santa Monica and if you don't need to be on the beach then I would recommend a stay at Le Meridien Delfina.

The location is a quick walk to the beach and all sorts of awesome restaurants. Parking is free which is rare in LA. But the best part is the staff. More like family/friends. A true delight to stay there. Ask for Rina, Lily or Ceilidh - the absolute best. Couldn't recommend this spot more highly.

My wife & I stayed overnight on our way to see family for Thanksgiving and we were very happy with our room initially. Nice and roomy, chic decor, just like the photos on their site. Then we went to check out the bathroom. The floor of the tub was lined with brown wet sand (or what we hoped was sand, from the beach nearby). Peeved, we called the Front Desk and they relocated us to another room right away and comped us continental breakfast for the inconvenience. It was a nice recovery and we enjoyed the breakfast the next morning in their nicely appointed dining area. Funny how a meal can be that much more enjoyable when it's comped. That saved us at least $30. The Front Desk let us check some bags at checkout and allowed us to pick our rental car later. So we went to service at Pacific Crossroads, which is walkable, then met some friends at The Tripel nearby and the rough start was all but forgotten.
