3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms are newly renovated and clean and nice, but not highly functional. You may be planning a beach/spa trip - but they aren't planning on wet swimming suits back in your room as there are no hooks or places to hang to dry!

I visit the LA area around 4 times a year. This hotel is great for me because it has a great gym and a pool that I can swim laps in. The breakfast buffet on weekends is awesome. I also enjoy having a drink at night by the pool and overlooking the ocean and the Santa Monica pier. If you... More

As soon as you arrive at the Loews the staff are friendly and helpful. The place has a beautiful smell to it and is so clean. This is the second time I have stayed and this time round it is even better. The rooms have been done up and the are so lovely. Beds are amazing! The health spa is... More

Opted for the room upgrade, but the room was very odd. Felt like it had been a conference room & had been changed into a bedroom. Something odd about it & no a/c in the bedroom part. Good location. Food average. Valet often takes a while but is a busy hotel. Typically what you'd expect from a 4* hotel. Been... More

Nice rooms....nice pool....on the beach....no balconies that I could see...but I could be wrong. So all fine...nothing wrong at all...just doesn't have the character of Shutters which is 2 blocks down the street.

Visited Loews Santa Monica late July this year and had a great stay. This hotel is in a perfect location - incredible view of the beach, which can be enjoyed from the pool area and beach facing bedrooms, and depending on traffic the likes of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills are no more than a 25 minute drive. All of... More

Friends recommended this place, and they were right. Newly renovated. Stunning view of the beach and ocean. Quiet, because it was away from the road. We were disturbed by noise from next door, through the paper-thin dividing door. Staff were friendly, and valet parking very efficient.

Rooms are very nice. Wonderful outside area with firepits where you can have a drink or a bite to eat - or just sit. They'll actually let you just be for awhile out there in the evenings and you have a fantastic view of the beach and the Santa Monica pier - which is basically right outside the hotel (you... More

The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms, although small are very nicely decorated. The location is what you are paying for here. Do not boom a partial ocean view room. You will get a view of rooftops and maybe you can see part of the coast. Just either book the standard view or the ocean view room. They charge... More

Our family together with my in-laws had dinner yesterday to celebrate my mother-in law's 84th birthday. My sis booked 2 rooms, which were clean, with a view of Santa Monica pier, but the food was lousy. They should hire a better chef. Nice hotel with awful food; should have eaten elsewhere.

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.
