Was a nice surprised. Had my family with me. Which includes young children. The pool was perfect and the hotel is a very nice vibe. It’s great for a family trip or a couples trip. Only a 4 block walk to the Santa Monica Pier. Nice having the free parking. It’s a well kept older hotel. I would stay at this property again.

I had an amazing visit. Location is perfect to everything you need to do in Santa Monica. I barely used a car as everything is in walking distance. Plus the bike rentals! The entire team was so friendly. Clara made me feel right at home and was so helpful. She was my first point of contact and set the tone for the entire week. i am coming back for… Read more

I was charged a resort fee even though the front desk had already agreed to remove the resort fee because of the construction. The person in the accounting department who I was supposed to contact to get this addressed never returned voicemails.

Delta canceled my flight and I had to find a hotel last minute for the night. I chose Le Meridien on Hotel Tonight and I'm really glad I did.

Delta canceled my flight and I had to find a hotel last minute for the night. I chose Le Meridien on Hotel Tonight and I'm really glad I did. The front desk staff were friendly and accomodating, and had useful suggestions for restaurants since I had not expected to be in Santa Monica at all. The room was small but cute, appointed well. Relaxing bed, and even had a little balcony if I wanted some fresh air but didn't want to go outside. My only two regrets: 1) because my flight got bumped late in the day I couldn't make use of all the amenities. I had hoped to have time to go into the salt water pool, but I needed to get a late dinner and then the pool was closed. This morning I was able to spend a half an hour working on my laptop in a lounge chair by the pool ,drinking my morning coffee, before I had to run to get breakfast and then back to LAX. Wish I'd had more time. And regret #2: I was in such a rush checking out that I forgot to leave a tip for Lily from housekeeping. I hope her boss can give her a gift card or something (the front desk said that may be possible if I left a review). Thank you, Lily! If you're looking for a hotel in Santa Monica that is four blocks from the beach, but at a more reasonable price point than some of the hotels that are right across from the beach or pier, I think you will enjoy Le Meridien. Food recs nearby: Water Grill was delicious for seafood but very expensive. I would probably only do that again on a special occasion. Blue Daisy for breakfast/brunch/lunch food is PHENOMENAL -- one of the most delicious crepes I have ever eaten. Read less

My gf and I checked into the hotel on the 21st for a deluxe room ocean view with a balcony, and when walking into our room, we found food and garbage bags everywhere, bedding soiled and discolored towels on the floor. We went back downstairs, and they gave us an "equivalent" room, a little smaller but also had a balcony. We were a little bit upset that we had paid a premium during peak rates for the hotel and weren't accommodated with a truly equivalent room, any additional perks or upgrades. On the day of our checkout, the hotel had a water emergency so they shut down all the water. I called the front desk, and they offered a late checkout for 2pm, however they also told me they expected the water to turn back on at 2pm. That sort of defeated the purpose of a late checkout, and we couldn't take them up on that offer, I asked if they could comp us a room at a neighboring hotel so we can at least take a shower and be hygienic for the day, which they refused. Honestly this was such a huge miss by management, they had a couple big opportunities and completely blew it. Read less
