Neighborhood
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.

If you only stay at one place while visiting southern CA, I would highly recommend Loews Santa Monica. The staff are amazing, the views can not be beat and the food is wonderful! I have stayed here several times and it is consistently a great place to stay.

Very very nice place to stay. Was there for a conference weekend. Food, environment and service was excellent. However due to cost going up quite dramatically, Will need to look for another place to stay next year :(.

Everyone at the Loews Santa Monica was so friendly and nice that it made our weekend so enjoyable. The hotel is in walking distance to the pier, the promenade and main street, as well as right on the beach. They gave my son a keychain and kite at check-in and the adults a glass o

I searched many properties before decided on Loews for our Thanksgiving Holiday & although not terrible, it was a bit disappointing. First the positive:

Dear Kdavi3, Thank you for your recent stay and for taking the time to share your experience as our guest. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed the services from our housekeeping team, our facilities and our great ocean front location - thank you! However, we are disappointed to learn of the lapse in services you encountered at our front desk and around our pool area. Please accept our sincere apologies for this and for the inconvenience this caused you. This is certainly not the type of service we pride ourselves on nor is it how we want you to remember our hotel. We thank you for this valuable feedback and want to assure you that we will address these issues with our team in order to improve our services. Again, we thank you for your valuable feedback. We appreciate your business and hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to our hotel in the future. Sincerely, Randy Elam Front Office Manager

Parking$ 60.00 a night ridiculous. Don't have guests come over as they will have to pay 50-60 bucks too! Guests spent 5 hours with me prior to going to a wedding and they were all charged forty-two dollars. So wrong!

Where can i smoke weed at santa Monica or Venice beach?
Not sure , walking the beach and surrounds I did not see anyone, day or night
0 votes
can you smoke weed on site?
Like most hotels , no , for the weed smokers life is harder than for cigarette smokers because the smell of weed gets into things and stays for longer.

Please can you explain the bathroom design in the beachcomber fire pit suite. Is there absolutely no door on the bathroom? And if you turn the bathroom light on at night does it illuminate the bedroom through that opaque glass wall? Also can you see the person in the shower if you are in the bed?
I was not in that suite. Sorry
