We stayed here in January '14, and the staff were wonderfully helpful. Having not planned anything prior to our arrival, we ended up sat in the Macdonalds using their wi-fi, and happened across the Marriott hotel. The hotel is easy to find and well located for the beach, pier and third street prom (if you don't mind walking!). When we... More

My husband and I stayed at this JW Santa Monica for several days for Christmas in 2013. It was our second stay. The first time was in Oct of 2013. We decided on that JW for several reasons, one is that we prefer a boutique style hotel, it's a lot less noisy than so many other big hotels,and you don't... More

Recently went for a 4 day chill weekend at this property in Santa Monica. I had been here before and I like the location, the food and the staff. The property is beautiful although at this time, could use a bit of upgrading. Some of the hall carpets, lighting, etc. are dated. Our check in was great. The front desk... More

My family(twin 13-year old boys, wife) and I recently stayed at Le Merigot for 5 nights.

I recently stayed at one of our favorite spots, Le Merigot in Santa Monica. Unfortunately, after this visit, it will be my last time there. We were terribly disappointed with the room we received, and specifically the lack of concern and follow up by Jessica Mahone, the front office manager. Prior to reaching the hotel, we called to check on... More

The location is great for walking to beach and all that Santa Monica has to offer. The room was lovely and it was wonderful being able to open the doors and have fresh air. The hotel doesn't offer any of the typical JW amenities and it has a premium price. There is no concierge or club level which was disappointing.

The location was ideal. Walking distance to the pier, beach, restaurants, & Third Street Promenade. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. I just felt the facility and decor was worthy of being a Marriott or a Renaissance instead of a "JW Marriott". Every thing was pricey but I didn't feel I got much in return. Probably stay again when... More

Stayed for a long weekend. Upon arrival the staff went out if their way to welcome us. The hotel setting is beautiful with a courtyard that includes outdoor dinning and swimming pool. The location is perfect, with the beach across the street from the back of the hotel. The Santa Monica Pier is two blocks away.

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.
