“Outstanding service and a great location”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

Second time of staying at this hotel. Superb staff make it a pleasure, excellent location just yards from the beach and very close to the best of Santa Monica.
Quiet rooms, very clean and all the positives of a Marriott.
Having stayed at other hotels in the area I'd highly recommend Le Merigot.

The location is perfect! We were steps from all the action. Everything about this hotel says class. The service was exceptional. Our room had a great view of the ocean. The weather wasnt great that weekend, but I still loved every minute!! Will definatly stay here again!!!

As other reviewers mentioned, the hotel itself is nothing terribly special - not the high-end luxury you might expect. But its very nice and the staff was great. The location is super for discovering Santa Monica by foot and for enjoying really easy access to the beach. As noted previously as well, the parking cost is too high. All that said it is a nice hotel on a beautiful beach.

Somewhat charming hotel in the hear of Santa Monica. It's location is interesting because you can discover downtown Santa Monica by foot.

Quiet rooms one house away from the beach, small swimming pool but nice atmosphere in the inner court of the hotel.

Excellent Spa and Fitness facilities.

Parking much to expensive!!! This is a not as it should be.

Expensive but very nice! Welcoming, attentive staff who always tried to please and seemed genuinely concerned that everything was taken care of. A relatively small hotel close to the beach that seemed like a calm, relaxing oasis at times. Good view of beach from room on 6th floor. Balcony a sun trap and shower was lovely. Room perhaps a little dull and some noise from early morning cleaners and the lift. Cezanne restaurant outstanding. Dinner may seem expensive but the service and quality of the food is superb. We kept returning here after trying other restaurants in the town. Thanks to Desi for cooking for me with gluten free pasta.You were definitely made to feel special here!

It's a Marriott. If you like Marriotts, you'll like this. Personally, I always find that they somehow manage to be a bit dingy even when they're otherwise aiming for the upscale. So you have nice pillows and sheets, and plenty of towels and fluffy bathrobes, but you also have styrofoam cups for your in-room coffee-maker and those industrial-looking wall bumpers to protect the wall from the bathroom door. They charge extra for internet, too. Oh, and there was a scale in my bathroom which was, um, very flattering--I suppose that could be good for one's self-esteem before heading to the beach, but it also suggested that maybe they hadn't replaced certain fixtures in a while. On the other hand, the hotel is right by the beach and very convenient to the rest of Santa Monica. Of course, so are a lot of hotels, but if you get a good price here, and you want to be on the beach, it's a decent bet. Just don't expect anything out of the ordinary.

This was our first hotel stop on our drive up the coast to San Francisco. After our stay we felt we were off to a great start! We really enjoyed our stay. We weren't able to check in early as we requested but we took the hour wait time to walk the strand to Venice Beach. When we were allowed to check in we were greeted by a very freindly lady at the check in desk. We were pleasantly surprised when she offered to upgrade us to a larger room free of charge for our one night stay. The room was very spacious with a sofa and chairs at one end of the room and a comfy bed on the other. The room had a great view of the ocean and pool area. The bathroom is a good size. We were able to easily and quickly get to the beach and enjoyed some time there. When we got back we enjoyed the heated pool for a while as well. The pool area is not large. When we were headed to the beach there were no chairs available and given the small area it does make it a bit difficult to get to the walkway gate to the beach. When we did return at about 5pm, there were only a few people there so that made it nicer. I used to live in Santa Monica for 7 years so I had to make a stop at my favorite restaurant in West Hollywood, Dantana's, so we did not eat at the hotel. When we did return from dinner we went to the outdoor patio and got drinks from the bar. It was a gorgeous night and they had heat lamps on and nice comfy large chairs to relax in while we enjoyed our cocktails. Getting our car from the valet was quick and easy and checkout was a breeze. Overall it was a great experience!
