From the second you pull up to the Loews Santa Monica, your experience is wonderful. Everyone greets you with a hello like you're an old friend and they're genuinely glad to see you.

What a beautiful scene at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. The pool during the day was incredible - great views, great drinks, great time. Our server, Mauricio (from Peru!) was the best. He made sure we were treated well, served often, and he was really funny too. I'm already planning my next trip back to the Loews in Santa...

We booked 3 nights in one of the beachcomber fire pit rooms. A few days before arrival I received an email for a standby upgrade to the fire pit suite.

Didn't stay overnight at the hotel. However, was in Santa Monica for a business seminar and our dinner was at the Loews. The service was only eclipsed by the food. Well prepared and presented from a "captive" menu and I can only imagine ordering from the REAL menu. I recommend the Loews for dinner and I'll be back...

The location is perfect. Right across the street from the beach, and a couple blocks away from the pier. The whole backend of the hotel lobby is windows.

We had a large room overlooking the ocean, with cathedral ceiling and balcony. It was gorgeous! The bathroom was top-notch and the shower nice and big. This was not an inexpensive room (about $450-500 per night), but we didn't like the fact that we felt "nickled and dimed" by extra charges, such as the $20 per day internet fee and...

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.
