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.

Took an opportunity to have a brief overnight trip to the property to celebrate a late New Years. From check in to check out it was a very pleasant experience. Juanitta who took care of us in the lobby was a delight, we joined for dinner at Fig and the bartenders specialty cocktail was perfect. The Steak was cooked perfectly and the meal overall was mouthwatering. The Bungalow was fun, and really amplified the experience. Must mention the IRD manager Francisco for the Champagne and Chocolate Strawberry amenity upon arrival to the room. What a great gesture of hospitality. Thank you for making it a memorable experience. Read less

If you are looking for an easy place to stay, the Fairmont is where you'll find it. The staff has always taken good care of me during my stay. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The addition of the Dogtown Coffee Cafe make waking up a breeze. The lobby bar is great for drinks and a meal. If you hang out there long enough you are bound to see someone you know. ;) Also, for all my Boston friends, the Fairmont is just a block and a half away from Whitey Bulger's Santa Monica, apartment hideout.
