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 booked this hotel when I was taking a little solo getaway for work and to see some friends. Had a really wonderful experience - all of my friends were jealous of my social media posts from my stay! I picked this hotel based on the location. Because I wasn't going to have a car, I wanted to be able to walk to food and entertainment, and this hotel was close to the beach and pier. Plus, the rooms fit my style! Staff was great and the service was amazing. They allowed me to check-in early (THANK YOU!) and were so attentive. Even the host at the bar remembered my drink order, so on the second evening he asked if I I wanted my "usual." Champagne on check-in is always a great touch! The room was great. The terrace looks out onto the beach and ocean, though I will tell you that these rooms are above the pool (you can't really see that in the photos on their website), so it is not completely private, but that was fine for me. I absolutely loved having the outdoor space available to hang out. The weather was a little chilly in the evenings / mornings, so sitting by the fire was a very relaxing touch and great way to spend time with my friends. The gym facilities are very nice, including a variety of cardio and circuit machines. I was able to do a pretty complete workout. I booked the Fire & Ice package, which included a bottle of Veuve Cliquot and a s'mores kit. I can tell you, the skewers that they provide for the marshmallows are very flammable, so they ended up catching fire before the marshmallows. lol. Also, for the additional cost-per-night for about 10 marshmallows and 2 chocolate bars, it seems a little overinflated (even if it includes Veuve.) For the price of the package, you should be receiving kits each night. (Especially since I didn't have a car, I ended up paying for two nights of parking I didn't use.) I think in the future, I'd just book the room and then order my own champagne and treats. Overall, highly recommend the hotel and am already trying to find an excuse to stay there again soon!

We had a wonderful time at the Lowe’s and went there for a well needed staycation. We had amazing views from our ocean front room (w night lights thanks to the Ferris wheel lights). The ocean sound was pleasantly loud despite the wide sandy beach. During our stay we noticed some other rooms have a fire pit (maybe next time) Dinner and breakfast by the pool deck offered picturesque views and most tables had a fire pit which gave a nice ambiance; s’mores dessert optional. Overall wonderful service down to the champagne at check-in. Well managed operation with quick concierge service. And it’s a few steps to the Santa Monica pier and old muscle beach play/exercise area. Read less

Walking distance to the Santa Monica Pier and directly on the beach. Had amazing views. The front desk rep was amazing and gave us champagne upon check in. The bed pillows were a little too soft for my comfort but that just my preference.

I didn't like $60 valet, but it was convenient. You can park outside cheaper $20 to $30 a day, but not sure how safe it is overnight. If you like a quiet room don't get a room near the pool area, but awesome view of sunset. It was worth it On Saturday, the hotel had a huge movie screen setup at the pool area.
