I stayed at Loews Santa Monica for two nights in January (28 and 29), on my way home from a week at the rugby sevens in Las Vegas. This was my third stay at Loews Santa Monica and most definitely the best. I arrived about midday, and was very quickly checked in by a really friendly desk clerk and my...

My family of 3 stayed here for three nights at the end of a 7 & 1/2 week trip around parts of America. We wanted somewhere nice to unwind before making the long trip home. We weren't disappointed either. Check in was a breeze and the lady on reception was so welcoming and friendly. She wasn't rushed and chatted freely...

My four days at this hotel were luxurious. I most enjoyed the spa and the beautiful lounge areas with the lovely decor.

The cost was pricey however, it was a...

I travel a lot and the staff here was par excellence. The concierge was the finest help is ever had and the front desk was beyond accommodating. It's centrally located and a good apt for families. While I was not family traveling it was still a good spot and nice facilities

Our room was very clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and accommodating, the location superb, but though the restaurant and bar/lounge are attractive, the menu (especially the bar menu) does not include enough healthy choices.

That's not an exaggeration. I should reveal the caveat that I stayed in a rather expensive suite, so I was considered a VIP guest. But let me tell you that it was worth every penny and then some.

Spent two nights here and had a super time. The rooms are pretty expensive, but considering the perfect location it was worth it. From our room we had a perfect view of the Santa Monica pier.

The restaurant is gorgeous. Fabulous views from every table. Excellent service. Lovely food. Great wine list. I've been here numerous times both with family and friends and I have never been disappointed. Since I live only 30 minutes away I've never stayed at the hotel, but I do find the lobby beautiful with a warm and welcoming ambience.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.”
