We booked an Ocean View room this was pretty nice although there was a shortage of coat hangers and no luggage rack when we arrived. We rang down to get this addressed and this was eventually sorted. The communication between the desk and the rest of the staff seems to be a problem - however whenever I spoke to the...

The view of the ocean that greets you as you enter is amazing. The rooms that face the ocean also give a marvellous view of the pier and ferris wheel at night and are good for people watching on the beach! The staff were very helpful, in particular the concierge. The pool gives great views of the ocean too. Great...

What a disappointment : ( This was the first unpleasant experience at a Loews Facility (all stays in different States have been first class). The construction was unpleasant but what caught me off guard was the management. The housekeeping was poor.... Coffee, water, food weren't replenished and the room was not cleaned. Management apologized but like the movie Ground Hogs...

The hotel is situated right beside the beach which was super handy. It is located very close to the Santa Monica Pier too where there are restaurants scattered around. Our room was located on the bottom floor and was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. There was also an Ipod dock in our bedroom which was unexpectedly great. The...

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.
