We stayed with our 2 boys ages 7 and 10 in a Pallisades suite. The room was very spacious with a door separating the main bedroom from the sitting room with the pullout sofa. They also allowed a rollaway in the room so my kids didn't have to share the pullout. The bed was comfortable and bottled water was left by the bedside at turndown. Bathroom amenities were plentiful and there was adequate counter space.
The management had a lovely tray of pastry waiting for us when we arrived and housekeeping brought a fridge for us on request.
We used the beach butler service, but did not realize you need advance reservations for it as there are only 10 chairs at the beach for the Fairmont. We used the hotel car to get to and from the beach as the hotel is NOT on the beach.
We also rented bikes by the beach and rode to Venice beach. Stay away from the Pier at night, it gets a bit seedy.
Very short walk to the 3rd street promenade with lots of shops and Starbucks.
If you plan on being in Beverly Hills or Westwood alot, the traffic in LA is brutal. It took us 40 minutes to get to dinner in Bev Hills - even on a weekend!
The spa is really nothing special, though I didn't have a treatment, i used the shower area as the boys were busy getting ready in our room. The pool isn't that big and doesn't have alot of chairs around it, but it was heated!
The service was very good in all areas of the hotel and the concierge was spot on about the local attractions.
Valet was pricey at $30, but couldn't be bothered to look elsewhere to save $10.
I would stay here again, but only if I didn't plan on going too far from the beach.
