Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

The hotel

Meet your LA home-from-home on the beach. Just a few short paces from Santa Monica Beach, and a sunny five-minute stroll from the world-famous Santa Monica Pier, this upscale address makes the very most of its awesome, face-tilted-to-the-sun location by creating as many links between the indoors and outdoors as possible. Rooms and suites are airy, spacious and have a simple elegance that evokes the beach with sandy tones and splashes of blue. Where possible, guests have ocean views and some even have private terraces or fire pits. The heated pool is deeply inviting and its deck commands sweeping ocean views, too. Every evening, meanwhile, the cosy Fireside Lounge takes the baton from the setting sun and casts its golden light on guests as they sip signature cocktails and sample mouthwatering tapas.

There seem to be only a few beach side luxury hotels in Santa Monica to choose from. I am thrifty, so I choose the lower cost option and I'm glad I did. The Loew's and other hotels are nearly next to each other, with Loew's being closest to the Santa Monica pier. The location is fantastic!

There seem to be only a few beach side luxury hotels in Santa Monica to choose from. I am thrifty, so I choose the lower cost option and I'm glad I did. The Loew's and other hotels are nearly next to each other, with Loew's being closest to the Santa Monica pier. The location is fantastic! There is a small side road that guests must cross to get to the sand, but it truly is beach side. The views are fantastic from the large, comfortable rooms. The robes and towels are cushy - as they should be! The pool area is great - tight but with wonderful views of the ocean and a much-needed wind screen surrounding it. There is a great on-site espresso bar. Perfect to grab a coffee and watch the morning beach views. The staff, especially the valets, were friendly, professional. One thing I especially noticed was that the hotel did not seem to defer maintenance during COVID. The common areas and our room were clean, maintained: no tippy lamp shades and worn carpet like I've seen so many "luxury" places...All that to say, I would book here again and again. I really enjoyed the hotel and the immediate, very walkable area. Read less

Great location and probably best pool area in SM also has a car rental counter so better get a cab from airport and collect car there Fire pit rooms are great but don’t get on one level 1 you need to be higher to have ocean view

Aria was incredible. My brother and I stayed at this resort for the first time. We had a few things that didn’t go as planned but aria and his staff quickly resolved all inconveniences. We are very pleased and will be coming back. Excellent restaurant and gym. Can’t beat location. Good valet.

Solid hotel in a very good position in Santa Monica. Room comfortable, very nice staff, breakfast very good and less expensive than surrounding restaurants. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Would definitely stay here again.
