What an amazing Hotel

By: Gynette

Reviewed on: 09 Apr 2014

My 16 yr old daughter, her friend and I had the pleasure of spending 7 nights at the beautiful Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica California this past March.  The service was over the top from the doormen that would never allow you to open the door yourself to the servers every morning at breakfast to the out standing counsieur service.  We really enjoyed starting our day with a delicious breakfast at the restaurant, the yogurt and berries were our favourite.  The hotel bikes were nice for a morning ride down to Vencie or Muscle Beach. In the evening we were spoiled to use the "house car" like we had our own private car and driver.  In a nut shell, we truly felt like Royalty staying at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and I look forward to returning with my Husband and stay in one of the Bungalows.  Thanks Kyle and Ryan for making our vacation so memorable.

This is a beautiful hotel right across the street from the beach.  Everything I saw or used was above the normal standard of chain hotels.The bungalow was a very pleasant experience.  It was much larger than a regular room and made you feel right at home.I liked the idea of the workout clothes and shoes already in the room to encourage you to get out and do something.  I was not able to enjoy this as I have had serious back problems.I had a great massage at the Spa and Cooper loosened up my sore shoulders.I plan in revisiting this hotel again.

Hotel public spaces are excellent, virtuoso amenities make it even better. Our ocean deluxe king was adequate, but not as luxurious as the rest of the hotel.

Santa Monica is beautiful and the location of this resort is super convenient to the beach. This is a big resort with a lot of families, so not the best if you want a quiet, romantic getaway.

You can't do better if you want to stay in Santa Monica. Rooms aren't remarkable (it's an old hotel and I'm sure a renovation is planned) but they are clean, and if you get a room with a view the vistas are exceptional. Fig, the hotel restaurant, serves a delightful breakfast and celebrity sightings aren't rare. Love the indoor/outdoor fitness room. The enormous Fig tree in the front is majestic and provides welcome shade. If they renovated the place to Four Seasons standards (doubt the City of Santa Monica would permit that sort of project) they could charge 2x the price. Super friendly staff at the valet, housekeeping, front desk, and restaurant.

The Fairmont was awesome. The Fig restaurant was the best. Great atmosphere and happy hour. We used their bikes for free all morning long. And the kids loved the pool. Rooms were clean and big. Would definitely go back.

The Fairmont Miramar is a very good hotel, with a magnificent Moreton Bay Fig tree dominating the entry. The water views are great and the whole setting is very relaxed and chilled. Unfortunately I was ill on our last day due to food poisoning at another establishment, and the Miramar staff were wonderful. Apart from driving me to the hospital, they extended our check-out time, and extended it again and again, despite being close to 100% occupancy. Thank you Fairmont Miramar, I would happily stay with you again.

Perfect Location

By: travelmom

Reviewed on: 18 Jan 2020

Our stay at the Fairmont did not disappoint. The palisades grand suite king accommodated our family of four very comfortably including an extra rollaway. We were perfectly situated to walk to the 3rd street promenade and to get to local dining. You could walk to the pier but chose to drive. The gym was well equipped and even had the opportunity to try a peloton workout. The cafe was perfect where we were able to find quick and easy breakfast food and coffee before starting our day as early as 5:30am. While valet parking was the only option and very expensive, it never took more than a couple of minutes to get our car. I highly recommend this hotel.
