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.

Property did a great job during the COVID time. It was nice to sit outside in the bar area and have drinks at night. Staff was friendly and helpful when needing something specific sent to the room or on property. I had a ocean room view which was perfect during my stay.

We were fortunate enough to drive less than 12 miles and find ourselves a world away. The Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica brings together the very best of service in the finest of locations. From the minute you drive though the gorgeous gates, you find yourself in a beachside paradise. The accommodations are both luxurious and comfortable and the service is a notch above - personal without being pretentious. The entire team at the Fairmont made for a special experience but Maria went above and beyond. We can’t wait to come back! Read less

For the second time in 10 years at this hotel (and third time in our life), we went up to our room, opened the door and "someone has been sleeping in my bed..."

For the second time in 10 years at this hotel (and third time in our life), we went up to our room, opened the door and "someone has been sleeping in my bed..." They assigned two different guests to the same room! Fortunately, nobody was engaged in any intimate acts as that would have been embarrassing for us and mortifying (probably) for them. In the age of computers, I just don't know how that happens....twice. The desk clerk was very kind, set us up with some drinks at the bar and a restaurant credit while another room was prepped. The dinner in Fig later that night was another miss (see that review under restaurants). We travel extensively and have stayed in 8-10 Fairmont properties and have a frequent guest status. This property has one of the better locations, but for us, it is probably one of the worst hotel experiences in this chain. For the price, you expect better. Read less

We went to Fig the first time since they reopened. The food is delicious, service is great and there are a lot of items to choose from on the menu. Hotel is definitely on top of their sanitation game. Valet cleaned our steering wheel, key fob and everything before giving us our car. Valet managers Osman on the way in and Christopher on the way out… Read more
