This hotel was not only beautiful, but the staff and service were amazing. They went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of, comfortable, and had a wonderful stay! We will definitely stay here again!

Fairmont Miramar is my escape from reality for short trips. The hotel staff is exceptionally professional and very friendly. You couldn't ask for a better location while in Santa Monica, walks on the beach, view of the Pier, gorgeous sunsets from your balcony, great shopping and restaurants within blocks. The spa has wonderful work out classes. After you're burned some calories at the spa, I highly suggest a meal at Fig, the bartenders make hand crafted cocktails and the food is locally inspired, much of the produce coming from the farmers market a few blocks away. Also drinks and nibbles on the terrace with your dog is wonderful. A perfect holiday.

Room Tip: Avoid a balcony room over The Bungalow club.

The staff and location of the Fairmont couldn't be more perfect. The beach...outside the front door. The Promenade and shopping areas of Santa Monica...also right outside the front door. The staff from top to bottom is cordial and helpful, without being over the top.

My wife, son and I found ourselves without a home for a few weeks and chose the Fairmont to make the homelessness a vacation. We couldn't be more pleased with the experience. The food is great, the drinks also. The location is perfect for families, or couples because there is so much to do within a 10 minute walk. The beach, pier, Main Street and Promenade areas are filled with restaurants and shipping galore.

No real negatives. The pool could be larger and the pool area, but you do have the Pacific Ocean next-door. We stayed in a bungalow which was great to have an outside private area. My parents stayed in one of the rooms in the tower, which also had a balcony, and they loved the location and room.

great location for convenience of getting around SM and the surrounding areas. love the bungalows and atomsphere. have had security issues since the property is spread out and courtyard, bungalow areas are just a jump over a wall unfortunately...mgmt/security didnt seem too concerned brushed it off. on another visit left something in the room...called hours later after checkout and of course not there or turned in...fortunately that time wasn't anything too expensive...just seems to be a pattern at this location

Stayed at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel again last week and enjoyed is as much as during my previous stays.

As always the hotel stay was fantastic with the hotel staff once again delivering an outstanding customer service across the board. In particular, Azar and Amber in the Concierge are delivering truly exceptional customer service and are a real gem for the hotel. Also Linda in the Sales team is a great ambassador for the hotel and is always delivering fantastic service to the hotel guests.

The hotel is really nice and is located in what I would call the absolutely best spot in Santa Monica close to the ocean, close to shopping, close to nice restaurants and yet a few blocks away from the buzz and noise around the Pier. Fabulous little oasis in Santa Monica and LA. Additionally, the newly renovated rooms in the Ocean Tower are really cool with a super modern décor and very slick appearance.

Nice hotel, no parking so have to use valet. Room was comfortable but bathrooms to small especially showers. Double lock your door because housekeeping walks right in. Get a room with a view of ocean & at end of hall because it can get loud w/ slamming doors, staff & guest walking past.

When you plan to spend 3 nights in an expensive hotel, you do not want any setbacks. However the Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica faces a serious problem with the tower rooms that are on the south side. They must endure the noise of the restaurant-bar-disco at the street level that runs all night.
We asked room change after a bad first night and were placed in a very good north side one. No noise this time. They know they have this problem that cause suffering to their passengers. Apart from this no minor inconvenience, the hotel is still very good with spacious rooms good wifi enrolling in the President's Club, well equipped with fine amenities and great beds. Valet parking required, expensive ($ 39 plus taxes) except for members of the Club. The location of this hotel is excellent, close to the beach and steps from the 3rd street which is a panorama itself. A la carte breakfast can be as generous as you like, expensive if not included in the rate, well served by attentive waiters. The restaurant The Fig, full of life and with some very fine dishes such as cold carrot soup which is served on a bed of cucumbers and berries, delicious. They don´t put bread on the table and if you ask is charged. Overall the hotel has an intense activity, every time there are people in bars, pool and restaurant. I'd come back, but making sure a room on the north side.

Room Tip: If you choose the tower, north side, the south is noisy.
