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.

This hotel is very nice and the staff is very friendly. You also can't beat the price, compared to other hotels in the area. Shout out to Mr. David at the front desk, he was very knowledgeable about the area and attractions and an overall nice fellow.

Hotel's Favorite
It’s been almost a week since my stay at the Loew’s in Santa Monica during the Covid-19 pandemic, but I still tear up when I tell the story of the unbelievably amazing customer service that I received from your employee, Deadra, during this unprecedentedly stressful time of travel. First, I received a nice pre-arrival text from her asking if I had any requests. You can imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t get any wine or snacks when I arrived because of the kitchen being closed, but I understood. The next morning, I have to say though, that I was beyond disappointed when I called down to Deadra and found out that I couldn’t even get a pot of hot water, again because of the kitchen closure. I was ready to leave to go to another hotel with better services when she called up to the room. She told me to hold on and that she was going to figure out how to get me what I needed. A knock on the door 30 minutes later and I had a electric kettle, 8 bottles of water, and get this, a chilled bottle of champagne for that night! The tears fall when I realize that Deadra didn’t even know how those seemingly trivial things were so very important to me. You see, I was visiting the area to see my mother-in-law who was recently widowed and is suffering from dementia. It is absolutely heartbreaking. After my time with her, I just want to curl up with a bottle of wine. And she didn’t know that I have an autoimmune disease that requires a special diet, hence the hot water for meals that I bring when I travel. She didn’t have to know these things. Deadra could have just given me the scripted Covid-19 answers, but she went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of. It was so appreciated and will never be forgotten. Thank you, Deadra. And thank you, Loew’s, for having employees willing to make sure your guests feel special.

Great Rooms! Great View! Safety precautions were great at check in. They cleaned their stations after every visitor checked in. Hand sanitizers were stationed throughout the hotel. We enjoyed our stay even if for only one night.

This our 4th trip to the Loews Santa Monica and it is still one of our favorites. It's hard to beat the location and the overall vibe of the hotel. We certainly understand that service is limited with Covid 19, but I would of thought that the staff would of gone out of their way to ensure that everything in their power was a great experience. My wife and I were in an Ocean View room which really looked over the pool. With a hotel that was maybe 30% occupied you would think they would put people in the very best rooms available particularly given reduced services but no adjustment in prices. It was a missed opportunity - every guest in that hotel could of raved about their rooms and experience rather than having a so so experience. There was also an issue with our reservation. We had considered cancelling our trip a few weeks prior as it became increasing clear that Covid infections were on the rise. When I called to cancel they indicated that I would lose my payment. I took it at face value that I had pre-paid only to learn at the hotel that I had not. Still glad we made the trip, but not the experience I would of expected.

We traveled during Covid because of a mandatory health appointment at a local hospital. We booked what looked to be a hotel that had all amenities inside so we wouldn't have to travel outside often but still be near the beach. Room service and the restaurant were closed due to Covid. The bar menu did not have any adequate vegetarian options. The location was spot on and if you want to stay in Santa Monica, you can't do any better. The room was missing amenities- one coffee k-cup but no coffee cups and was dirty. There was candy "under" the bed (there is a barrier blocking it from going completely under so it was rather visible), hair on the bathroom sink amenities. The "view" from our room was of an alley and garbage and some clothing that must have blown into the trees. Honestly, the entire thing was a complete and utter fail until we met Deadra. She is the Loews front desk rock star. Everytime we stopped by with a question, she made us feel welcome and was so helpful. She surprised my child with sunglasses to enhance their "cool look" and helped make our trip truly happy. Loews rating = 2. Deadra rating = 100000000
