Always stay at the Fairmont when in Santa Monica. Close to everything and the staff and atmosphere are unbelievable! The bar restaurant food and cocktails are great. The waterfall and fire pit tables make it so comfy. I highly recommend this hotel.

I travel to Los Angeles fairly frequently, and have for about 20 years now, and I have to say Fairmont has become my go-to in Santa Monica. I enjoy Shutters, Oceana, Casa Del Mar, The Viceroy, but for me Fairmont beats them. The location for one, is perfect. You're on Ocean, you can walk to a dozen great restaurants (SUGARFISH)... More

Excellent Fairmont Property with excellent staff. Fitness center is outstanding with unique indoor/outdoor set-up. Small property with rooms right outside of lobby lounge makes for party type atmosphere. Great Location. Bungkaows are fun and unique hotel experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic, with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica Pier. Our room had a full ocean view and a balcony, and I would've been content to never leave, although we had lots of fun plans about town. There is also a variety of great spots to eat nearby. The...

Having stayed at a Fairmont Hotel im Singapore I was expecting a great room but with lots of things not working. However, this Fairmont is a smooth operation. The rooms are spacious wuth really good beds, the service was superb and the hotwl restaurant Fig was pretty good as well. I would definitely come back.

The location of the hotel is wonderful, but for the price I would likely stay somewhere else on Santa Monica Blvd. Service was OK but not exceptional. Rooms and view are great. Complimentary bicycles.

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.
