Much better hotels available for the price

Posted 16-Aug-2016
I know this hotel claims to be a Fairmont but if it is truly a Fairmont it must be the stepchild in the chain. The hotel is crowded, very crowded, to the point where the staff is overwhelmed. The pool is tiny as are the rooms and bathrooms. Basic things like a hairdryer were missing from our room. Took forever to get a car when we needed one. The spa is tiny and crowded- had to wait in line to use the bathroom. So many better hotel options in LA. Would recommend the W or Lowes over this hotel.

Beware of the Separate Bar Facility

Posted 15-Aug-2016
Only negative but very important aspect is that they have a separate outdoor bar facility that attracts a massive older college crowd. We had a beach view room and it was ruined by the fact all you could hear was the extremely loud bar ALL NIGHT and we were on the 5th floor. We put the TV on to fall asleep to in order the drown out the noise from the bar. It was really bad. Not what I expected for a 5 star hotel and the price I paid. I don't usually do reviews but it was really disturbing in the evening. Everything else was great. Perfect location, great staff and clean facilities. Unfortunately the noise aspect from the bar is a huge negative.

filthy dirty, unkempt. Older part of hotel run dow

Posted 25-Jul-2016
Pros: Wine
Cons: older part of hotel should be updated and equivalent to newer rooms - we're paying same rate. Clean staff needs to be more thorough. Hire more for ck
Location: Great location
Dirty - black hairs in tub, dirty wine glass on floor inside by door, carpet horribly stained, food on curtain, drink rings on all surfaces.... Also, service lacking in all areas. Our room was guaranteed to be ready at 3 but had to wait until 5 - ridiculous 2 HR wait. And we were not alone - about 3 or 4 other parties. Staff not Friendly or willing to accommodate us in any way.

Historic Oceanview Santa Monica Hotel, lovely

Posted 20-Jul-2016
Pros: The room was quiet, clean and the bed was comfortable, no overused mattress here. The balcony door was sound proof and I could not hear my neighbors.
Cons: During breakfast on the patio the clean up crew only cleaned the tables and left food and trash on the floor - very unappetizing.
Location: Best location in Santa Monica within walking distance to the Pier, the beach, 3rd Street Promenade, Metro Station, restaurants and much more.
Beautiful historic ocean view Santa Monica hotel that's walking distance to all the SM hot spots. We came for a one night getaway and were happy with the hotel's location, close to the SM pier and 3rd Street Promenade and with all rooms having ocean view. Close to all the tourist spots but not right on top of them made the Fairmont Miramar a great choice for us. Very good service, I had forgotten an overnight item and the front desk provided it no charge.
