This hotel is just plain AWESOME.

Where do I start? Customer Service...from the time I pulled up to park my car I was greeted by a very courteous and professional Valet who was dressed impeccably to the first rate Front Desk staff who made sure I was in need of nothing and signed me up for the SPG awards program to the Housekeeping staff that was very attentive and friendly right down to the bartender who made my Illy Breve Latte perfectly.

I live in Las Vegas and work for a major Casino and Resorts company. I know great service and great management when I see it.

I cherish my weekend getaways to Los Angeles and this hotel hit every mark.

The modern and swanky décor of the lobby extends to the guestrooms. My private balcony overlooked the pool and beautiful surrounding residential Santa Monica.

This is a beautiful hotel right in the heart of Santa Monica just a few blocks away from the beach,great shopping, and dining.

I will definitely stay at Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica again.

Really enjoyed our stay at Le Meridien Delfina. The rooms are very chic, spacious and clean. Huge comfy bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Ecellent location, only a 5 minute walk from the Santa Monica Pier. Self parking was complimentary. Would definitely stay here again!

Very nice, clean and updated hotel. The whole staff was very inviting and hospitable especially the valets. It is close enough to the beach and pier like a 10 min walk. Free parking or valet. I only wish I could have stayed there longer.

The suite was very modern and elegant. It was furnished with artwork and photographs. Tastefully done. There was a small fridge in the room but no microwave, which would have been nice. The room had a great view over Santa Monica and a little outside balcony. The bar in the lounge was quite pleasant.

Dear Jimmylove210,
Thank you very much for your review on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned your views from above Santa Monica, that is due to our elevated location which affords great views from Malibu to Catalina Island on clear days. We appreciate your business and hope you will select us on your next visit to Santa Monica.

We had a room block and the hotel took great care of us. The hotel is walking distance to the beach. The rooms are well-appointed and clean. The hotel staff was pleasant and courteous. The hot tub suites are fun and roomy.

I rarely ever write a review, and even less frequently, complain about my travel experiences. It is tough to convey the sincerity of that claim, but please take my word.

My stay at Le Meridien Delfina was truly unpleasant. I travel 15+ times a year for both work and pleasure, and rarely have had an experience as unfortunate this stay. The staff/ customer service was very good, and the location very convenient, but the actual hotel grounds and room were way below our expectations.

Our room was located in the furthest corridor of the building and was extremely compact. The room truly felt as if it were a just janitorial space converted into a hotel room in order to monetize extra square footage. There were numerous other items to be unhappy with: the bathroom could not fit 2 adults in it at one time, the air conditioning leaked significantly throughout the night onto the floor (which I nearly slipped on as a result), our keys failed to function several times, and "customer parking" was unavailable throughout the brief stay (but $32 valet service was, of course).

We were seriously disappointed.

Room Tip: Be specific about your room requests; we were not and wound up somewhere in another zip code of the...

My boyfriend and I really liked the Meridien. Great staff and location. Just a 10 min walk to the Pier and the 3rd street promenade.

We arrived late at night and all the self parking spots were full so we had to pay $32 (yes, you read it right) to valet our car. Internet is free in the lobby area but if you want to get some work done on your computer in your room, you'll have to cough up and extra $15 dollars. Crazy.

Dear SwedishVagabond,
Thank you very much for providing the feedback around your recent stay at the hotel. As you experienced, parking is a premium in Santa Monica and our valet price is the lowest in all of the Santa Monica hotels that offer valet service. In the Le Meridien brand, we focus on Unlocking the Destination so we hope you were able to get out and enjoy many of the top points of interest in Santa Monica such as the pier, Getty Museum, Venice Beach, or 3rd Street Promenade. As you are a Top Contributor for TA, we greatly value your comments and I will share with our team.
Best Regards,
