Stayed here as a family of four. Only inconvenience was that our two rooms were across from each other although we had requested interconnecting rooms. Location is convenient -- across the street and a small alley from the beach and a short walk to the pier. Modern, sparse decor which works and is appropriate. Friendly and helpful staff. Airy layout... More

I have stayed at this hotel approximately 10 times. They have done a really nice, very much needed renovation just completed this year. A modern redo with a pleasing palette. The space is utilized well with built in counters in both the room and bathroom. My only critique of the new furnishings is that there is no comfortable chair to... More

We were very pleased with our recent stay here. Stayed in an upgraded room that was comfortable and well-appointed. The entire hotel was clean, upscale and right on the beach. The valet staff was amazing and had our car ready every time we needed it. Great place if you're looking to stay on the beach in California.

Can't beat the Loews for its location, pool, view, newly-renovated spacious rooms. Rent longboards, bikes, any needs right below the hotel on the beach boardwalk. Great food at the pool, plus awesome evening spot by the fire pits to watch the lights on the pier come on. We had a ocean front room that was fabulous. They also have them... More

Fantastic BEACH FRONT Santa Monica Hotel. Loews really has it all - There are a lot of hotels in Santa Monica, but few are located ON the sand. Some are even a lot more expensive, and you have to cross a busy street to get to the beach. Here are the high points - Best SM location, nice updated rooms... More

This is a good hotel for families... huge...noisy... pool... close to the beach and Pier. Our room was small and nicely redone but had a view of the street where people walked up from he pier and could see into the room so we had to keep the shutters closed all the time.

The Loews Hotel is directly across a street from the ocean. It's as close as any hotel is in this area, none are directly on the beach. The people and service are friendly and considerate. The view from the pool is beautiful. My issue with this hotel is that it is very expensive and I am not seeing anything to... More

I stayed at this hotel while traveling for business. The interior is stunning with dramatic views of the ocean. Super close to the pier, which you can see from the patio/pool area. The patio has nice chairs and firepits which are great to enjoy a glass of wine near. Great restaurants nearby! Spent an afternoon by the beach (a weekday),... More

Great place ! 5 star service , gorgeous beachfront setting. Hip feel. Small but beautiful pool, very inviting vibe . Concierge extremely helpful although perhaps overly discouraging of venturing into LA traffic. Always available and eager to assist .Newly renovated rooms. Walkable to lots of great stuff in Santa Monica: pier, beach, restaurants

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.
