A special place to relax by the beach

Posted 22-May-2017
We loved our stay at the Miranda Fairmont in Santa Monica. Our room was exceptionally clean, the staff were so polite and accommodating and the location is perfect to get into the fun restaurants, shopping districts and beaches that Santa Monica offers. The only trouble we had was that there were not enough spaces at the pool and often had to wait for a lounger. Overall it was fabulous and would stay there again.

Great location in Santa Monica

Equally good for business or pleasure. Beautiful indoor outdoor bar area in the lobby next to a lush environment and pool. The private bungaloes are to die for.

Very loud nightclub which impacts the South tower

Posted 15-May-2017
The hotel is lovely, but be aware that if you stay in the south tower, there is a nightclub (the Bungalow) that plays loud music until 2am. The cleaning crew is on until 3:30 am. The hotel offered earplugs which did not help. This is not mentioned on Expedia's description.

Lovely hotel by the beach with a caveat

Posted 24-Apr-2017
Heads up! Do not stay on the south side of the "Tower" unless you like listening to heart pounding music and LOTS of people having a LOUD great time at the on-site nightclub/bar until 2 AM that I did not know about when making a reservation. I think the hotel has an obligation to inform its guests of that situation when you pay a premium rate for a room and expect a premium experience. The room had a great view of the beach and ocean, was well appointed but quite small. On the good side - every staff member I interacted with was very professional, genuine, helpful and pleasant. They made the stay worth it.

Great family vacation

We had a wonderful family vacation. The hotel is close to everything and the grounds are beautiful. The hotel had complimentary bikes and we had such a great time riding on the strand all together.
