Virgin rating

The hotel

Overlooking Santa Monica Beach, Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is conveniently located just nine miles from the Los Angeles International Airport and just minutes from The Getty Center, Beverly Hills, West Los Angeles, Century City, Malibu and Venice Beach. Indeed, all guest rooms have been designed to have the lowest impact on the environment. Rooms are either in the Ocean Tower with spectacular views of the Pacific or in the historical Palisades wing. Nestled among tropical flowers, palm trees and tranquil waterfalls are 32 secluded garden bungalows with exquisite furnishings and French doors that open onto private patios. Fitness enthusiasts will love the outdoor splash pool, whirlpool and health club. Massage is also available for those in need of pampering or simply pull up a sun lounger and soak up the sun. For fabulous dining, look no further than the new FIG Restaurant with Chef Jason Prendergast seasonal Bistro food. The Lobby Lounge is another great place to eat and chill out. Set against the soothing Koi fishpond and waterfall featuring open-air outdoor seating, the Lobby Lounge offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails making it a great place to socialise with friends and family. Combining the charm and romanticism of a seaside cottage, with the comfort and casual style of a Baja inspired casita, The Bungalow is Santa Monica’s most distinct lounge. The Bungalow is the perfect location to enjoy an intimate evening where you can relax in an atmosphere featuring sweeping outdoor decks leading to dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean and enjoy a refreshing cocktail or small bite from the exclusive bar menu from the FIG Restaurant. Many of Southern California's attractions are just a stone's throw from the hotel, including Santa Monica Pier and its historic carousel as well as Third Street Promenade - famous for its fine restaurants, live entertainment, movie theatres, shopping, local artists' scene and a weekly farmer’s market.

Beautiful oasis where we were able to find the peace and relaxation needed after a busy year. Accommodations were Fairmont standard, although housekeeping left a bit to be desired. The pool was where we spent most of our time, time made so much more enjoyable by the fantastic and friendly service, particularly by Laura, Gil, and Wil. Thanks guys.… Read more

Staff was wonderful food was great. Grounds were Beautifull. Antoine capped it off with helping me get settled in and when I departed. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a great location and service.

The Fairmont Miramar is a beautiful property - the ocean view rooms are wonderful, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect, with easy walking distance to the beach. Our check-in was disappointing however - we had to wait until 7.30pm for our rooms to be ready in the Palisades tower & when we finally got the rooms, there was a bad odor in the rooms. The front reception manager Gigi (Gorkem Gokmen) was exceptional here - she provided us with alternative rooms in no time & compensated us for the inconvenience. She went over and above to make sure the rest of our stay was comfortable - thank you for your exceptional professionalism & guest service Gigi! All the staff were wonderful & we will definitely stay here again when we next visit Santa Monica! Read less
