This extremely comfortable hotel overlooks the beach at Santa Monica, is a 5 minute walk form the famous Pier, and barely a 10 minute walk form the main downtown area. Good shopping and heaps of choice whether you just want a coffee or a meal. Staff are friendly and very helpful - beds a are particularly comfortable. This was our...

When we arrived at this hotel we had just come from The Bellagio in Vegas where the lobby resembles market day in a busy 500 year old European city. By contrast Loews is quietly understated hiding it's glamour the other side of the towering windows at the far end of the entrance lobby, behind which lie the lovely sandy beaches...

The warm and fuzzy feeling that we had when we walked into the amazing lobby, which had a fantastic view of the beach and super friendly staff at the counter, was soon tempered by the view, or lack thereof, of our room. Our experience went down from here, including a sink that was clogged, no housekeeping service after the first...

The renovation at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel has taken a great hotel and turned it into an even greater hotel. We were just there last June and the charges are remarkable since then. It literally looks like a completely different hotel. The lobby is now completely open, the pool area is more inviting and the rooms are simply...

I paid $309 for our room with twin beds and felt like I stayed in a much more expensive hotel. The common spaces are all updated, pretty and comfortable. The service was excellent. Food was costly, as it is at most hotels, but quality was excellent. Many healthy choices on the menus plus decadent treats as well. Everyone was happy.

This is a very nice hotel that we visited 8 years ago and enjoyed. This time, we were happy to see refurbished rooms, and the location and view of the ocean is still as beautiful as we remember from our last trip to Santa Monica. However, I am presently sitting poolside at the hotel as I write this review. I...

I recently stayed here during a business trip to California. I had a lovely corner suite with a spectacular view of the ocean, the pier and Pacific Park. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage for my clothing. It would have been nice to have a (better) work surface where I could use my laptop etc....

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.

“Not all rooms overlook the beach - you will possibly pay a little extra for this. Higher floors will get less noise via the atrium.”
