Excellent hotel in perfect location. The room was quiet, clean, spacious and comfortable. We were upgraded to a bungalow suite which we appreciated and they allowed us late checkout at 2.00 which we appreciated as we were flying back to Sydney that evening.The hotel has an iconic Californian style which gives it a great feel for the location.We loved our...

The bungalows at the Fairmont Miramar and a great size. It didn't have the hotel room feeling. All of the amenities are first class and I thought the idea of having workout clothes already in the room was a great encouragement to use the facilities on site. The beach just across the street with wonderful walking paths was a plus....

I really wanted to like this place...had been looking forward to my stay for a while....and just was seriously underwhelmed. You pay top dollar to stay here - the location is great and there is definite name brand recognition, but the hotel is old. Although quite clean and well equipped, the room was small and the bathroom tiny. 3 small...

I brought my daughter and stayed at the Fairmont Santa Monica over Memorial Weekend. We were upgraded to a larger ocean view room which my daughter loved. The Fairmont is also close to 3rd Street which was convenient. I would definitely recommend Fairmont SM for families.

The newly renovated rooms at the Fairmont Miramar are gorgeous! The style is refreshed with modern touches. The beds are super cozy like clouds in the sky. I ordered room service and it was delivered within 30 minutes! i would definitely stay here again. You can't beat the proximity to the many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Well worth the expense. We booked via Amex platinum service to receive the fine hotels and resorts amenities. Early noon check in, $100 f&b credit, breakfast for two and 4pm late checkout made our little stay cation a perfect trip. Service was stellar. Ask for a ocean tower room or upgrade to a bungalow.

This is one of my favorite Fairmont properties. The location can't be beat: It's right on Ocean drive, so just a quick walk over to the ocean, and all the shopping and bars and Pier is just a few blocks away.

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.
