Checked in to be told I was upgraded to a suite, yay! Suite is on the first floor. I try to decline the upgrade but "nothing else is available." Um, okay. I enter the room and it looks like something from the midwest. All browns and taupes and cracked leather. Horrifyingly, the light beige (!) couch has two massive and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Despite issues with annoying charges (see end of review) this was still a 5 star stay. I can not say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff, no matter who. Always a "good morning", "how are you" etc. Service at Fig restaurant included. Beautiful grounds. Really an oasis from the city. Stayed in room 835 which had an...

sccrref, Thank you for speaking on your stay and thank you for the 5 stars. Montana avenue is really the best place to shop in Santa Monica as it is just how you stated, more local. I am sorry to hear about the hard bike seats, this is something we will absolutely look into. We hope you come back to...

I've stayed at the Fairmont Miramar a few times over the past 3 years. This is a good hotel, with a great restaurant, and a even better outdoor bar area (known as The Bungalo). Love the fact that there are free bikes, a nice sized gym, a pool and several bar areas. Unfortunately all of the rooms I've stayed in...

We stayed here for 3 days. The hotel and grounds were beautiful, but parts of them were closed off for most of our stay due to special events and filming. We had to use the side entrance most of our stay. The rooms are very small and cramped and the pool area was small and could easily get overcrowded. The...

The Fairmont is by far the best hotel in Santa Monica, and this is someone who has stayed at every nice hotel in the area. I just spent ten days at the Fairmont and had a great experience. They were very accommodating and the crew at the hotel are extremely helpful and nice, specifically Doug Max and Raymond. The grounds...

From the initial quick response from Raymond G on my questions to our last moment on checking out this trip will be remembered with great fondness. Our flight in changed and we were extremely early. The staff was very accommodating and notified us directly when our room was ready. Extra items to help make our celebration memorable were set up...

I can't say I've ever stayed somewhere with as much history, luxury and an amazing location quite like this. It's quintessential SoCal vibes but with amazing service. Perfect pool, great restaurant (Fig) and you are so perfectly positioned for the (long scenic walk to) beach, the Santa Monica Pier and the 3rd Street Promenade. We stayed in a totally splurge-worthy...

David D, I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your time at The Miramar and everything we have to offer. The bungalows are a good hide away and allow you to feel as if you aren't in a hotel. Come back and visit us again soon! Warm Regards, Allyson Humphrey Front Office Manager

Arriving at the Fairmont Miramar is a grand experience. The entrance, foyer and pool area exude old world glamour. Unfortunately, the rooms don't quite meet the same level. While a reasonable size and well appointed, they are pretty basic and feel a little dated. A room with an ocean view is definitely worth the extra investment.

Jillian B, I am happy you had a grand arrival. Unfortunately all of our rooms in the ocean are close to the same size of 275 sq. ft. but you are correct, they have the best views and are worth the investment. We hope you come back and say hello again soon! Best, Allyson Humphrey Front Office Manager

Does not live up to a true Fairmont place! Arrival is grandiose with a majestic tree and very friendly valets. But don't get carried away just yet.... But then at check in (and this is the 3rd time it happens to me), whether you are a President's Club member or not does not change anything..I always got a noisy room....

Would definitely recommend this hotel to stay in if visiting LA - we stayed 2 nights before a cruise, the location is perfect right on the beach, walking distance to Santa Monica Pier, our room was spacious with a small kitchenette with complimentary coffee, the hotel is spotless, staff were pleasant, nice sitting areas close to the pool.

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.
