I cannot begin to express our disappointment in this property and regret our decision to stay here. Let me first say that if you come as a couple and stay in a King sized bed, it might be OK. In our case, I came with my cousin (her invitation) and she aimed to book us a room that allowed each...

On a cold and windy weekend in a crowded hotel during the Oscars, we STILL enjoyed ourselves in spite of these challenges. Our room was tiny, and the double beds felt like twins, but you just have to know what you want and that this is an old hotel with much charm! Staff are 6 star. Linens wonderful. Shower excellent....

It's pricey - but it is the top hotel in the area bar none. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely grassy pool area... The service is fantastic... The ocean view rooms have epic views and balconies... The gym is one of the best hotel gyms and they have yoga classes that are great... The restaurant is also very good......

Wonderful location in Santa Monica - walking distance to the beach and shops. My room had a beautiful view of the water and the iconic ferris wheel. The room was immaculate and the bed extremely comfortable. While the bathroom was small, it was clean and well decorated. All of the staff were kind and courteous. Though I was there for...

I booked and paid for a premier ocean view room. Room was nice, but I would not describe my premier ocean view room as a "full ocean view". I've stayed at many beach resorts, and I would describe my room as "partial ocean view" (which I imagine is what their "deluxe ocean view" room is). I feel like the advertising...

Christi T, I apologize for the premiere ocean view room not being what was expected. Our Ocean Tower rooms face either diagonally north or south of the beach and we only have a few rooms that face directly out towards the ocean.

Great location. My room had a wonderful view. Shower is smallish. Nice furnishings. Stayed in Shutters the trip before this. For half the price, Miramar is a great value! Would stay here again. Bungalow is a very hopping bar

Allyson Humphreys and Adrianne were exceptional and very generous in their time and handling to resolve the issue.

Considering the location of this destination property, right above Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica, CA, one would expect a first class experience, notably the price this property commands (easily almost $500/night when adding taxes and resort fees). While giving stars is over rated and often abused, this truly deserves no stars whatsoever. That wouldn't be fair to anyone, notably...

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.
