Wonderful location in Santa Monica - walking distance to the beach and shops. My room had a beautiful view of the water and the iconic ferris wheel. The room was immaculate and the bed extremely comfortable. While the bathroom was small, it was clean and well decorated. All of the staff were kind and courteous. Though I was there for...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Amazing amazing amazing!!!!! I can not speak more highly of this hotel. I got to visit a few hotels on my trip but this was my favourite. This hotel has something for everyone. It has bungalow family rooms and hotel rooms that have a view of the ocean. The pool area is like a tropical oasis and the gym is...

I booked and paid for a premier ocean view room. Room was nice, but I would not describe my premier ocean view room as a "full ocean view". I've stayed at many beach resorts, and I would describe my room as "partial ocean view" (which I imagine is what their "deluxe ocean view" room is). I feel like the advertising...

Christi T, I apologize for the premiere ocean view room not being what was expected. Our Ocean Tower rooms face either diagonally north or south of the beach and we only have a few rooms that face directly out towards the ocean. Should you decide to come back to us, feel free to reach out to me at Allyson.humphrey@Fairmont.com and...

Great location. My room had a wonderful view. Shower is smallish. Nice furnishings. Stayed in Shutters the trip before this. For half the price, Miramar is a great value! Would stay here again. Bungalow is a very hopping bar

Firstly, the Fairmont Miramar team did a great job resolving some initial booking issues that is not to go unnoticed. Allyson Humphreys and Adrianne were exceptional and very generous in their time and handling to resolve the issue. The property is very well located and appointed in amenities and services (Beautiful grounds) and a very nice restaurant. Our family of...

We have stayed at several Fairmont Hotels in the past and we have to say this one was a major disappointment. We checked in a Friday Evening.

Considering the location of this destination property, right above Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica, CA, one would expect a first class experience, notably the price this property commands (easily almost $500/night when adding taxes and resort fees). While giving stars is over rated and often abused, this truly deserves no stars whatsoever. That wouldn't be fair to anyone, notably...

Across the street from the beach and at the edge of 3rd street promenade, the Fairmont is ideally located to step out for short, enjoyable walks when in meetings. Rooms are good, food is good, and the tree in front of the hotel is a monument worthwhile visiting! Safe choice.

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.
