Reviewed 1 May 2014

This hotel is large and clean and a little pretentious in its manner . The location is great , the pool a bit small , they were smartening up the pool area while we where there. You did get free coffee making and water in your room, very close to great shopping and restaurant .

Dear jtandk – Well, we do think we are special, but so are our guests, so we have to be, right? That being said, we genuinely care for our guests and pride ourselves in our service abilities, so I apologize if we came across as pretentious. Not intended at all. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly...

We came up to LA for one night for a birthday party. Booked the hotel the day before and so glad I picked the Fairmont. I booked it through AMEX so they gave us a room upgrade to a suite with two rooms, both of which were very nice, a $200 breakfast credit and $100 resort credit. This place killed...

I would not return. The Fairmont doesn't come close to the expectation I had for the price and from other reviews. I really wanted to like my stay at the Fairmont but in the end I could not.

Dear SCtoAK – It is obviously disheartening to read the first line of your review. It is even more disheartening to read the reasons for your dissatisfaction are all service issues which could have been easily avoided. There is no excuse for what you experienced, but I hope the pros outweigh the cons and you would consider returning to see...

I have stayed at the Fairmont Miramar many times. In every case, I have ALWAYS had a fantastic experience. On my most recent visit, my college-age daughter was staying with me and we were in a bi-level bungalow with a patio (my favorite of the Fairmont's accommodations). Part of what sets the Fairmont apart from the competition in Santa Monica...

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend getaway at the end of April 2014. We had adjoining rooms and a suite on the 10th floor and why the rooms themselves were good (but not great), I cannot say enough great things about the staff at this hotel.

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...

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.
