My daughter and I checked into this hotel on May 25, 2014 and we're first given the key to a room in the older, shabbier tower. The rugs in the hallway were buckled and dangerous, the room had a musty smell, and the furnishings looked like something from a few decades ago. All this for $300 a night. When I...

Dear tripsahoy13 – We have 20 room categories here at The Miramar, ranging from our standard Fairmont category rooms to our Premium offerings such as our Bi-Level Bungalows and Tower Suites. Some of these have recently undergone complete renovations and some haven’t, but I can assure you that all are well cared for and continuously updated. I apologize your initial...

Wonderful stay during our Spring Break vacation. The view from our Deluxe Oceanview room was lovely. Staff very friendly and helpful! Steps to shopping, restaurants and the pier. Will come again soon!

This Fairmount in particular is our favorite for its location, newly redecorated rooms, service and general ambience. If we have a choice of hotel when visiting the LA area for business, this is our choice; our trip in March was for a concert in LA and we stayed here for all of the reasons stated. Wonderful experience. Close to 3d...

Rooms are somewhat small in ocean tower but veranda that came with room makes up for tight quarters. Room is nicely furnished. Pool seats are limited- so get to pool before 11. Spa was nice. Staff very courteous and go out of their way to accommodate their guests.

This is our first disappointing experience at a Fairmont. The staff was half hearted, the room was old , noisy and not that clean. We left after a 1 night. We were in he older part of the hotel because we had a President club upgrade. They don't upgrade to the remodeled rooms of the hotel... It seems ridiculous to...

Wonderful location, view and service. A bit expensive but very accesible. All the main attractions are at a walking distance. The facilities are very nice and the service is impecable. I would definitely stay at the Fairmont Miramar when returning to Sta Monica.

We splurged a little bit for spring break and the whole family wound up at the Miramar Hotel. First of all - it's a beautiful location. It's close to everything and essentially across the street from the beach - excellent views from the rooms. The pool was wonderful, but seating was a little limited. We didn't have any problem finding...

The hotel is beautiful and located in a perfect area. Across beach and near the promenade of third street. When we arrived, the room had treat for our kids, beach toys. Room was spotless but a little small. Great view from our balcony ( great sunset!). Great staff.

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.
