“Fabulous hotel”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

My husband and I stayed here for the L.A. marathon. The location was perfect for that. The service was amazing. The only time we had an issue was at breakfast one day when it seemed like they were a tad bit understaffed. The food was good, even in the lounge. The room was clean and comfortable. I'm not sure if they offer transportation from the airport, but it's L.A. so we opted to rent a car. Although this hotel is within walking distance of the Santa Monica Pier and the beach. Overall, an amazing stay and we will be back!

From the historical fig tree at the entrance to the classic Fairmont hotel staff professionalism, this is a fabulous choice. When you're standing on your balcony (ocean-side,) all of your California dreamin' comes true in front of your eyes, while in behind is the luxurious sophistication you expect from a Fairmont hotel. If you have the people and the budget, the cottages around the pool make for a perfect vacation retreat.

Room Tip: Again, if you have the budget, go ocean view. But the hotel is so close to the ocean, it's not a...

My family spent a couple of nights here as part of trip to the SW USA. We had a two-room suite overlooking the sea. The room was lovely, although the stye was more old-fashioned than the photos seem to show. The public areas were spacious and beautiful. Supper and breakfast were good and the staff were uniformly courteous.
The setting is wonderful, of course, and drawing up to the lobby is an experience.
Highly recommended overall.

We have been staying at the Miramar for 30 years. It only gets better with age. The ambiance, location, facilities and staff are extraordinary. If you're looking for a special place anywhere near Santa Monica, do yourself a favor: stay there.

Room Tip: Tower rooms with balcony all have exquisite view of the ocean/Santa Monica Bay

This hotel was very beautiful and the perfect place to do business. The service exceeded my expectations in every area of the hotel. Perfection and energetic service is almost impossible but this is the closest I've experienced in LA.
