Fairmont Miramar

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

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.

We stayed 6 nights at Fairmont Santa Monica and the weekend experience was fantastic. We had a room with amazing views over the ocean and stunning sunset, good size, comfy bed, ... The staff was very professional and helpful (Thanks Carolyn, Brett,...) We will come back here in our next trip to Santa Monica.

Love the layout of the hotel and had the perfect day with family by the pool. An Verbeeck coordinated everything flawlessly and was able to have the perfect welcome Martini waiting for my dad in his room.

From the moment we arrived the staff were very attentive and helpful beyond necessity. At the check in, Yuhan on the front desk was so helpful and very professional, gave excellent advise on the area and looked after us very well. What a great welcome to our first visit to LA.

The Hotel in general is good.. nice pool area, good service but this is my second time here and the A/C never works!!! They always come to “fix” it and they never do! Had to sleep with the windows open.. and the noice was annoying, not staying here again.
