Very little to say besides this place is fantastic. Great rooms, great Service and excellent food and drink. Excellent views from the balcony, and awesome service by the pool. Loved my stay and wish it could have been longer.

Well worth the expense. We booked via Amex platinum service to receive the fine hotels and resorts amenities. Early noon check in, $100 f&b credit, breakfast for two and 4pm late checkout made our little stay cation a perfect trip. Service was stellar. Ask for a ocean tower room or upgrade to a bungalow.

This is one of my favorite Fairmont properties. The location can't be beat: It's right on Ocean drive, so just a quick walk over to the ocean, and all the shopping and bars and Pier is just a few blocks away. The service was top down amazing, from the moment we drove up to when we left. We came here...

We had booked a palisades room for 3 nights only to be upgraded to a deluxe ocean view room on check in. The rooms are spacious and we had a fantastic view looking towards Santa Monica pier.

As a surprise 65th birthday trip, I took my husband to the Fairmont Miramar for five days. The staff and the hotel itself exceeded our expectations. Our 10th-floor room overlooked the ocean and, though there was some traffic noise, the amazing view was worth it. The Fairmont's hallmark of great service extended to everyone on staff. Everyone was attentive and...

The hotel and facilities are great but the service this trip was disappointing. No towels in the bathrooms, multiple calls needed to get help with the luggage and no follow through on emailing the bill when requested at check out. Given the rates being charged, these are items that should be taken care of. When these are not a wonderful...

Having stayed at many Fairmonts, Ritz, Four Seasons, etc, I have to honestly say that this particular Fairmont is not on the same level. Some specific examples from last stay include: -waiting for over an hour to have one piece of luggage to be brought to our room, and then only after I called three times asking about its whereabouts....

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.
