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.

Had a relaxing weekend. Got a discounted rate, so felt worth it but would not have paid the standard rate of 2x. Room had amazing ocean view, but it was small and dated and had poor noise insulation. Pool facilities were nice, though small. Restaurants/bars/private event spaces were nicely appointed.

This place is the best! Hands down, the very best. My house was being repaired, and I needed to stay nearby with my three year old son while the demolition was taking place. Thankfully, Fairmont Miramar was able to accommodate every single request I had. It felt like we were on a vacation, as the time we spent there was really special. Their staff was so kind our entire stay - concierge even gave my son a little stuffed animal. He also had a little robe which fit him perfectly! The front desk was efficient and beyond accommodating. We really loved hanging by the pool and making memories. All of their food is exceptional, and we just felt so spoiled. We loved our time there, and can't wait to go back and visit soon! PS housekeeping is the sweetest! Read less

Our experience at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows was beyond our expectations. From the moment we stepped foot on the beautiful property, Gigi went to great lengths to make our sons 30th birthday and our stay in LA very special and memorable. We will be back again!

Great location, great rooms and great vibe. A little slice of heaven on our trip... have to be quite rapid with pool spots as the pool area is not massive, but that is a minor criticism as it's not the destination to spend your entire time by a pool. Fig restaurant was ok, but not worth the hype unless you hit the half-price hour... the pool staff… Read more

Fig restaurant was ok, but not worth the hype unless you hit the half-price hour... the pool staff we excellent, their attitude softens the blow of the bill when you eventually call for it. The lobby bar is also great. The main positive is the location. We stayed in a palisade king suite which was ample for two adults and two small children under 5. Read less
