overall had a nice experience. Too much partying even in the night, causing noise even late in the night. This hotel felt very vibrant and alive with activities. We had a partial beach view which was wonderful.

Dear MNtraveller71 – Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Our hotel does get very busy in the evening due to the array of options available for drinking and dining. However, if peace and quiet is what you desire, please reach out to myself or our reservations team before your next visit so we can ensure you...

The Fairmont did an exceptional job with the wedding reception. The food was incredible. We had trouble getting the room cold enough. The duvet made it worse. The only real issue with the hotel is the price.

Great hotel, great location, great staff, great rooms. Food is excellent. Key systems need to be updated, key kept de-activating and the pool and hottub could have been a little cleaner, but other than that it was a great hotel for a family vacation.

Dear Michael R – So many “greats” and an “excellent” - I love it!!

Went for an LA "stay-cation" to the Fairmont. Asked if there was any construction at the hotel, because the week before they were jackhammering the main entrance driveway. They said no. We booked our room. Upon arrival, we asked if there were any upgrades available (amex) they said no. Then I confirmed with the Desk person per ouor reservation that...

Needed to stay on night in the LA area and decided to stay at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica after I read some reviews.

Dear Flo S – I’m sorry to hear you were so disappointed with us…I would also love to hear a little more about your stay to understand why service was lacking considerably. Currently, construction is not taking place near any of our street-facing rooms, so I’m curious as to what you may have heard! My email is carly.skinner@fairmont.com...please feel free...

Fairmont Miramar has been my "go to" hotel in Santa Monica for over a decade both for business and pleasure. Whether staying in the hotel or the bungalows, it's always been an excellent experience. Customer service is second to none.

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)...

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.
