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.

Great location but it is not located right on the beach. It’s very close. You have to bring towels and your own chairs to the beach. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We were told we were being upgraded to an ocean view room. When we got to our room, it’s barely a pool view room and you cannot see the ocean. No fridge in room. The pool is very nice and clean. It’s definitely an adult setting. Unfortunately, there was a screaming toddler there for hours this afternoon which was very annoying. We were forced to leave the area to get some peace and quiet. Hoping the child is not screaming this entire weekend because we would like to enjoy the pool area. Service is excellent and the food is very good. There is a beautiful patio to watch the sunset. Fire tables on the patio for evening cocktails provides a wonderful view of the ocean and pier. Read less

My family and I booked a 4 day stay at the Loews Santa Monica this past weekend. Didn’t know what to expect what with COVID being still in play, but we were pleasantly surprised and had a wonderful stay. Check in experience was quick and easy. My wife and I were offered a glass of champagne during check in. We booked an oceanfront firepit room. Highly recommend these rooms. The common areas were clean and the staff were very friendly. Everyone wore masks and there were multiple hand sanitizer stations at areas where you would expect/want them (e.g. by the elevators). Our room was very clean. There’s a travel size hand sanitizer bottle in the room when you first enter which was a nice touch. We spent some time at the pool, which is heated. We will definitely be back soon. Oh and the valet charged our Tesla overnight. Amazing service. Read less

This hotel is very nice and the staff is very friendly. You also can't beat the price, compared to other hotels in the area. Shout out to Mr. David at the front desk, he was very knowledgeable about the area and attractions and an overall nice fellow.

Great Rooms! Great View! Safety precautions were great at check in. They cleaned their stations after every visitor checked in. Hand sanitizers were stationed throughout the hotel. We enjoyed our stay even if for only one night.

This our 4th trip to the Loews Santa Monica and it is still one of our favorites. It's hard to beat the location and the overall vibe of the hotel. We certainly understand that service is limited with Covid 19, but I would of thought that the staff would of gone out of their way to ensure that everything in their power was a great experience. My wife and I were in an Ocean View room which really looked over the pool. With a hotel that was maybe 30% occupied you would think they would put people in the very best rooms available particularly given reduced services but no adjustment in prices. It was a missed opportunity - every guest in that hotel could of raved about their rooms and experience rather than having a so so experience. There was also an issue with our reservation. We had considered cancelling our trip a few weeks prior as it became increasing clear that Covid infections were on the rise. When I called to cancel they indicated that I would lose my payment. I took it at face value that I had pre-paid only to learn at the hotel that I had not. Still glad we made the trip, but not the experience I would of expected. Read less
