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.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend with our kids as we were celebrating various special dates for our family. We were able to get connecting bungalows which was nice. Upon arrival, the children's room was nicely set up with their names on the dresser - that was a nice personal touch. Throughout our stay, the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Word to the wise, make sure to secure reservations at FIG if dining on the weekend. It is a MUST for dinner. The food was excellent and the service was great. My daughter spilled her hot chocolate one evening and without missing a beat, a new hot chocolate was provided. We had several meals at the restaurant during our stay and all the food was wonderful; but my favorite was the Maine Lobster Cobb. Read less

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room was advertised as a suite with an ocean view. When we checked into our room all you could see were the tops of palm trees. We then asked to be moved to a higher floor and they stated there were no rooms available but that they could move us down the hallway to another suite. When we went into the new suite you could barely see the ocean between a gap in the palm trees. The suites are misrepresented as ocean view as an additional cost. Also we booked directly online with the hotel for their 3 night for the cost of 2 night offer which came to $1,429.83. When I checked out they stated that I would receive a itemized statement in my email which I never received, when I called the next day they stated it would take 48 hours to receive. After 48 hours I still did not receive the itemized billing statement. I then emailed them and asked to again receive my billing statement on 10/31/2020 and I have yet to receive it from them. The hotel was not even close to being fully booked and was somewhat like a ghost town. I will not return as they could have easily put us on a higher floor with the view that we paid for when we initially booked. Read less

We spent most of our time at the pool, it was perfect Southern California weather for a two day break from everyday life. I highly recommend coming here, they are taking everything very seriously and we felt safe and well taken care of. Read less
