Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

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.

This hotel, located directly on Santa Monica Pier, is a perfect place to get away! The people that work at the property were genuinely, kind and helpful. During such a strange and stressful time, with the pandemic, raging, this hotel provided a slice of normalcy. The property is great but the people that worked at the hotel made the trip perfect.

The Loews in Santa Monica is right on the beach and near a ton of famous places in which to walk. The place is stunning and perfect. There is so much I can say, but if you ever have the chance stay there, even if only for a night, do it.

The Loews in Santa Monica is right on the beach and near a ton of famous places in which to walk. The place is stunning and perfect. There is so much I can say, but if you ever have the chance stay there, even if only for a night, do it. I am a local and having a little work done on my home I decided let's get out of the house and make a weekend adventure in our own area. Making reservations, almost at the last minute was easy and the staff on the phone was great. I hate making reservations on line, I tend to call--I have questions. Once we arrived the valet service was perfect and check in was wonderful. We got a beautiful room and were not ignored or put in the back because we always have our grandson with us. The room was spotless and housekeeping staff was great. All employees had proper masks and all Covid protocols were met. I felt safe and secure. My grandson loved the pay per view movie selection when he was not in their stunning pool. You can leave the hotel and walk right to the beach if you want. We did not leave there the entire 2 nights we stayed, there was no reason. The food is great, we did not have dinner, but had room service for all our meals and each was so tasty. We love this place. Go there. Read less

Organized a stay at this hotel for a friend. I can't say how wonderful the person, Steven, was in helping me with this booking. He went the extra mile to insure my friends would be comfortable and well looked after. Thank you so much!

I have stayed at this hotel at least 15 times, pre--Covid, and I always had a positive experience. However, my most recent visit, during the pandemic, in November 2020, was quite disappointing.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 15 times, pre--Covid, and I always had a positive experience. However, my most recent visit, during the pandemic, in November 2020, was quite disappointing. The atmosphere and the hotel was pretty grim. And I was surprised by how few services and amenities were available. For example, breakfast in the morning was extremely limited; I had to go a couple blocks away to a Starbucks in order to get a proper meal. The phone system the entire time I was there was not functioning. When I asked the parking valet why I could not call down to get my car, he indicated that the system had failed a few days before, but there was nobody around to fix it. Occupancy was only 5%, and I recognize that it’s difficult to properly run a hotel when there are so few guests on site. But I would expect better service from this company. Read less
