This hotel was everything we hoped for in a JW Marriott property. We spent a week in southern CA for my son's 18th birthday, and wanted a place he would enjoy. We were told this is a 'boutique hotel' and so didn't know what to expect, but a friend who lives in Santa Monica told us we would really enjoy...

We stayed for only one night at this Marriott - We had only 36 hours to take advantage of Santa Monica before boarding in LA for Tahiti. It's hard to beat the location. It has area in the back with an exit out to the beach. I 10 minute walk to the Santa Monica Pier from the back exit and...

I recently stayed here with my fiancee and extended family. The hotel is not the most luxurious beach hotel in LA, but is a very nice property in a great location. The staff was superb. The only negative was the valet car service seemed overwhelmed at times and would require a few reminders to bring up a requested car.

Great staff at valet ($35 per night) and check in. Hotel is right on the beach, almost. Pool and workout room was nice. Beautiful bar area at night. We had a room, two doubles, with a view of the ocean. The only downside was the service in the breakfast restaurant but the general manager says it will be addressed. Definitely...

I had a fabulous stay at the JW Marriott Le Merigot on my way back to Boston from a wedding in Hawaii. It was sheer luck that I stayed there - having never been to Santa Monica (or even the LA area), I went through an exhaustive search of my options, and kept coming back to this hotel, even though...

This property gets mixed reviews but we give it our resounding endorsement. We got a corner room with a view of both the ocean and the Santa Monica Pier. The bed was comfortable, valet parking (which is the only option at $35 per night) works efficiently. The staff are all very attentive, professional, friendly and accommodating. We asked for a...

Property is great and a convenient location to beach and promenade, but unfortunately I was robbed by the valet of a pair of sunglasses. Stupid me for leaving on the dash.

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.
