This hotel is so beautiful. We had a beach front room with balcony. The staff was very helpful and our room was ready when we arrived at 9am. A little pricey but it's nice to splurge every now and then!

This was our first trip to the USA and our first hotel. The décor was a little tired however for a beach side hotel it was what we were expecting. We love the beach and the location was perfect for us to walk on the beach daily, very safe. Sad to see some of the homeless living on the beach...

This is a great family friendly hotel right across from Santa Monica Beach and Pier. The staff was great and the view was beautiful. We only stayed one night but we will stay longer next time for sure.

It was a nice place, but nothing really stood out as rating a "very good". The location is nice, near the beach and near the pier. But there is really very little else right around the hotel in terms of restaurants, shopping, etc., unless you take a little bit of a lengthy walk. Rooms were fine, a little on the...

Aside from this morning's "rock and roll", everything about our stay at the SM Loews has been first class. Tavo and Belle at the concierge desk are the best. Bike rentals at the beach, service around the pool deck from Julio and Mauricio, housekeeping staff and restaurant staff at Ocean and Vine - all first class and worthy of mention....

This was a mostly pleasure, tiny bit of business trip. We always stay at Loews. We love Santa Monica and the Pier, and this hotel gives us great access, plus a pool.

Perfect for location for walking to pier and beach activities. It's not directly set on the sand, but it's very easy to access. Not impressed with service at all.

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.
