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.

Great stay at the Loews, on a trip that was part business, part family. The location is outstanding - right on the beach, with easy access to swimming, volleyball, and everything on the boardwalk and Santa Monica Pier. Also a good location in terms of getting around anywhere on LA's west side. Big shout out and thank you to Claire in VIP service… Read more
Great stay at the Loews, on a trip that was part business, part family. The location is outstanding - right on the beach, with easy access to swimming, volleyball, and everything on the boardwalk and Santa Monica Pier. Also a good location in terms of getting around anywhere on LA's west side. Big shout out and thank you to Claire in VIP service who helped us with a couple things. Views from the rooms are outstanding. Nice game room for the kids, and the facilities including the pool area and gym were well maintained. One note, the hotel could make it easier for guests to get coffee in the morning. Overall I can strongly recommend the Loews Santa Monica! Read less

The Loews is a very special hotel. From the extraordinary beach views to the attentiveness of the staff to the gorgeous rooms and comfortable appointments, we’ve never had a less than wonderful stay. Sophisticated and elegant without being stuffy, this is a top notch place to unwind.

Amazing hotel - food was great - wait time for food a bit long however - views are spectacular - good value for the money - first time for us - would go back for sure - super attentive staff for the most part..Stayed 2 nights would have loved an extra night - getting the car in and out was a breeze - our room was amazing - ocean view with the Santa Monica Pier in clear view wow! The gym and the locker room were astonishing - very impressive. There are signs of wear and tear on some of the furniture in the lobby and the dining areas especially the outdoor dining area and for a hotel of this caliber and price point thats rather unacceptable. Other than that we would stay again no question about it... Read less
