The hotel is by the beach, nice lobby, we stayed in the bungalow suite, but disappointed that their recent remodeling is replacing counter tops over dented furniture. At least they should stain the dents and scratches.

Dear wwtrav – Thank you for taking the time to write this review, but I have to say, I am very confused! I am not sure which countertops you are referring to… Regardless, our Engineering and Housekeeping teams are very dedicated to ensuring our furniture stands the test of time by thoroughly detailing and touching up pieces daily. Please feel...

The day I check in to the hotel someone from a private function which was being hosted at the hotel was extremely rude to me. It wasn’t a great start. Given I have stayed at many Fairmont hotels and always found their service to be excellent I decided to notified the front desk of the incident as I thought they...

There are other, dare I say better known, hotels in Santa Monica. But the Miramar has three things the others don't. First, its location is literally perfect, right on the bluffs at the bottom of Wilshire by the California Incline, and by the Promenade. Second, while it's true that some of the rooms are on the small side, each of...

The bungalows at the Fairmont Miramar and a great size. It didn't have the hotel room feeling. All of the amenities are first class and I thought the idea of having workout clothes already in the room was a great encouragement to use the facilities on site. The beach just across the street with wonderful walking paths was a plus....

I really wanted to like this place...had been looking forward to my stay for a while....and just was seriously underwhelmed. You pay top dollar to stay here - the location is great and there is definite name brand recognition, but the hotel is old.

I brought my daughter and stayed at the Fairmont Santa Monica over Memorial Weekend. We were upgraded to a larger ocean view room which my daughter loved. The Fairmont is also close to 3rd Street which was convenient. I would definitely recommend Fairmont SM for families.

The newly renovated rooms at the Fairmont Miramar are gorgeous! The style is refreshed with modern touches. The beds are super cozy like clouds in the sky. I ordered room service and it was delivered within 30 minutes! i would definitely stay here again. You can't beat the proximity to the many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

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.
