Great location on Ocean Drive. Beautiful entrance to the hotel...many bellmen to help with luggage and to welcome you. Easy check in. The lobby has many seating areas, which was nice because I had a long wait before our cruise group left the following morning. My room was so big and comfy. It had a cushy robe, as you'd expect. The bathroom was large with bathtub and separate shower, wonderful soaps and shampoos provided. The hotel restaurant is Figs, named after the giant fig tree in the driveway to the hotel. I had three meals there...L,D and breakfast. All delicious, fresh market meals with local in-season produce.
The most fun thing was NCIS-LA was filming in the lobby the morning of my long wait. Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J interacted with us and were very nice! It was fun to see the behind the scenes of a TV series. The lobby has coffee by 6am before Figs opens for breakfast. I worked out at Exhale, the incredibly appointed, clean gym. Towels and water provided.
I would stay hear anytime I'm in LA...short ride from LAX...Third Street Promenade with Nordstrom's and many great stores and restaurants is a block east of the hotel. I can't say enough about the Fairmont Miramar!
