Fairmont Miramar

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

The hotel

Overlooking Santa Monica Beach, Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is conveniently located just nine miles from the Los Angeles International Airport and just minutes from The Getty Center, Beverly Hills, West Los Angeles, Century City, Malibu and Venice Beach. Indeed, all guest rooms have been designed to have the lowest impact on the environment. Rooms are either in the Ocean Tower with spectacular views of the Pacific or in the historical Palisades wing. Nestled among tropical flowers, palm trees and tranquil waterfalls are 32 secluded garden bungalows with exquisite furnishings and French doors that open onto private patios. Fitness enthusiasts will love the outdoor splash pool, whirlpool and health club. Massage is also available for those in need of pampering or simply pull up a sun lounger and soak up the sun. For fabulous dining, look no further than the new FIG Restaurant with Chef Jason Prendergast seasonal Bistro food. The Lobby Lounge is another great place to eat and chill out. Set against the soothing Koi fishpond and waterfall featuring open-air outdoor seating, the Lobby Lounge offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails making it a great place to socialise with friends and family. Combining the charm and romanticism of a seaside cottage, with the comfort and casual style of a Baja inspired casita, The Bungalow is Santa Monica’s most distinct lounge. The Bungalow is the perfect location to enjoy an intimate evening where you can relax in an atmosphere featuring sweeping outdoor decks leading to dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean and enjoy a refreshing cocktail or small bite from the exclusive bar menu from the FIG Restaurant. Many of Southern California's attractions are just a stone's throw from the hotel, including Santa Monica Pier and its historic carousel as well as Third Street Promenade - famous for its fine restaurants, live entertainment, movie theatres, shopping, local artists' scene and a weekly farmer’s market.

The check in was pretty easy and when I requested a different room (I detest 1st floor rooms), the team easily accommodated me and moved me to their top floor. Room was super spacious and airy, quiet and the bed was amazing! Great turndown service, with a bottle of water in the nightstand. Fig restaurant was pretty good too! Only big downside is the valet Is super pricey at $50/night but that’s LA for you! A good experience overall. Read less

We had the most amazing week at the Fairmont Bungalow’s in Santa Monica. The restaurant on site was charming and delicious and the Bungalow bar was a really cool spot for drinks. They have an exhale spa, a blow dry bar, complementary bicycles and many other perks. But the best part was the staff was incredible. They were very attentive to every little detail. They were friendly and happy and you could tell they loved their life and their job. I can see why. Santa Monica blew us away. We met incredible people and had more fun than we could have imagined. I especially wanted to point out how amazing Katy Lee, the manager on site was. I noticed she had an adorable photo of a mom and baby behind the front desk that she had been sent by a husband to print out and have in the room for when they arrived for their spring break. That attention to detail blew me away. She was beyond helpful and made our stay perfect. We will be back! Read less
