Good hotel with nice features but not worth the money (too expensive in my opinion). Internet not for free in 2014?? Unacceptable. Friendly staff at pool bar and good valet but also very expensive and the room rate is already very high!

This is a nice hotel. Good rooms, great breakfast (actually exceptional breakfast, amazing service and hats off to the staff who run the Fig Restaurant, well done, you guys are what made the hotel experience memorable). We had 2 issues: 1) we arrive after a 12 hour flight from London at 7:30 pm and our room was not ready and...

Dear Fahad S – Thank you leaving a review and for your constructive feedback. Clearly checking into a room as late as you did is unacceptable, and the offer for a complimentary dinner while you waited was the least we could do. We in no way meant to offend you with a “freebie”, so my apologies. Please also accept my...

Reviewed 19 August 2014

I have reviewed this hotel as average, basically due to night club attached. Rooms were lovely, quality of hotel was excellent. Meals a bit pricey and the valet parking of $35 each night (no self park) was not worth it really, but no self parking in the local area. Facilities around pool were good and position is very good. Downside...

Dear BuffyKT – Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and highlighting both the good and the bad of your stay! While we do not have self-parking on property (similar to most if not all neighboring hotels), there is ample metered street parking and local garages available as alternatives. Please accept my apologies for any disruption caused...

We had a great stay. 5 perfect nights in the best location in LA. The concierge were spot on. We had a great time riding the Fairmont's BMW bikes on the beach bike path to Venice beach. The Fig restaurant was excellent.

Music by the pool would have been nice--Bungalows where charming -time for new flooring in them--food, bar, staff, spa, bar were excellent! Fig had great reviews but it was much to be desired--food wasn't great, staff was distracted--nice atmosphere-bad service.

Dear Marjorie C – Thank you for the almost perfect review! Sorry to hear your experience at Fig didn’t live up to expectations (surprising as it is rare I hear that!!), and there actually is music at the pool (I will be checking the volume levels first thing in the morning!) Other than that, it sounds like you had a...

I have very mixed emotions about the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica. The good news first. A stellar staff who handled all transactions from check in to meals to check out in a professional, courteous and polished fashion. A wonderful location for beach or town. The bad news. Rooms are small. As a single I managed OK. The couples in...

We stayed at the Fairmont two years ago and it was a wonderful experience. This year was a whole other story. Firstly, they have "remodeled" the rooms (not a big fan of the new style). The hallways were not remodeled and now are dirty and smelly. The higher you go on the floors, the better they get but only a...

Dear SusanPink – Thank you for posting your review.

I met a business contact here for a quick meeting. It was perfect. The breeze through from the ocean was refreshing while the food was good and delivered quickly.

The property is beautiful and offers all amenities one could want. The best part of the stay - the warm and friendly staff. It is also an easy walk to the promenade, Palisades Park and beach. We have stayed at other Santa Monica Hotels - this is our favorite.

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.
