Great service. Perfect location and beautiful setting, elegant grounds, a feeling of Europe in Southern California. There are many hotels in the area, but this one is something special. Lived in Santa Monica for 25 years. Going back as tourists is the best, especially at The Miramar.

Unlike other travelers, we were not offered drinks, appetizers, anything, while we waited awkwardly in the lobby. Much of the seating was already taken up by groups gathered around their laptops in the lobby so we were literally standing there making small talk next to our luggage. The room was very large, clean and had comfortable bed and foldout sofa.... More

Beautiful hotel, beautiful fig tree in front. At night it was so noisy from bar that we had to keep our balcony door closed which was a shame because we had (and paid over $650 a night for) an ocean view with Santa Monica pier. The room was obviously for one person, though they had stuffed two queen beds into... More

First let me say I've never been to a hotel of this caliber that was in need of better management. Although all the staff was friendly . Nothing was corrected upon request. One of the two elevators was down the whole week we were there and had been down well before our arrival. One day the remaining elevator got stuck... More

This hotel is really nice. The boys upfront are so helpful with renting scooters. We have been out and about all day long! The room is clean and fresh and the grounds are nice. Recommend staying here for sure! The one draw back we had is that there wasn't a little shop where you could get water, we walked down... More

Arrived at 4:30 and room wasn't ready. Nicely bought me drinks and apps until my room was ready at 5:30pm. Room was well put together, but no coffee, and diet soda. Took 3 calls to get it done, room service brought diet cokes first ( confused ) Room service sent the wrong things, housekeeping didn't quite finish perfectly. Everyone was... More

I really love the location of this hotel as well as the gym, exhale spa (great instructors and yoga classes!) and the common areas....most of the staff is super nice. So i keep coming back year after year. The thing that continues to be a bummer is that there can be a HUGE variation in the quality of the rooms... More

Once I arrived, I was welcomed by the concierge and the staff. The room was beautiful and very clean. I went downstairs to the fix restaurant and I felt home, the food was excellent, the waiters were friendly and the manager was caring and very involved into how the hotel runs. The entire time there, was enjoyable, fun, easy, and... More

Lovely room, quiet and spacious. Room service very efficient. Staff all extremely helpful. If I had a criticism it would be that it's massive, but that's a small detail. Nice restaurant and good pool area from which you can see the sea. Excellent gym too. Free wifi but there is the option to upgrade to a fast connection which is... More

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.
