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.

I can’t say enough good things about this property. The rooms are big, beds comfy, bathrooms big, products good quality, amazing views. The service is top notch, including a welcome champagne upon arrival. Location great to walk to a lot of what Santa Monica and Venice beach have to offer. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

When I arrived at the Loews Santa Monica, I wasn't feeling well at all. One of the managers, Rudy, went above and beyond to ensure that I had the best stay possible despite how I was feeling. Not only was the service phenomenal, but the views are breathtaking. Watching the sunset from my balcony was the highlight of my trip. Highly recommend… Read more

But my other Loews’ experiences have been far superior, We couldn’t find anyone to seat us for lunch and had to run around and find someone. Our server at lunch was nice but not attentive although the restaurant was not busy. The bar was out of several types of gin on a Friday at 5 pm. Not worth what I paid for it and sooo sad Read less

Amazing!! This how I would described my experience with the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. We brought a project to them in October 2019, to bring a small part of my team for business. We stayed from Dec. 28 thru Jan. 2nd, 2020. From the initial sales contact with Nick, through the contract phase with Melody, to the amazing service provided by Lauren and all her Conference team, (Specially Ceci & Mike) to even Victor at the valet. All our accommodations and unusual requests were met to perfection. The food from the hotel is very good, must try! All the rooms were impeccable, love the location, close to the Pier, many wonderful restaurants and close to Venice beach. Most important, is the happy-service-accommodating character of everyone in the hotel, it shows that is not only training, but this are people working in a happy environment. Can’t forget, that the morning of the Rose Parade (Jan. 1st.) I left at 3:15 am, and a cup of coffee, with a water and a banana, was waiting for me at the lobby, this is service anticipation! Thank you. Looking forward to coming back! Read less
