Excellent on-site restaurant
Late-night noise from the nearby Santa Monica Pier can make for a restless night
Little touches such as soy milk for your morning coffee or steel cut oats for your breakfast oatmeal go a long way with recent guests of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. Those travelers also praise the invested and attentive staff and the fresh produce served in the hotel's FIG restaurant. This hotel earns praise for its proximity to the Third Street Promenade of Santa Monica, not to mention its deluxe on-site amenities, which include the exhale Spa, a fitness center (which hosts Mind Body classes) and an outdoor pool. Visitors find that the guest rooms meet their needs, housing flat-screen TVs, internet access (for an additional fee) and Keurig coffee makers. However, previous guests recommend requesting a room facing the pool rather than the ocean, as late-night noise from the nearby Santa Monica Pier can make for a restless night. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels can earn points for choosing to stay here.

Critic Reviews


Luxurious (though small) rooms, an excellent spa, and a devoted staff make this five-acre, 302-room property one of the best hotels in Santa Monica.



An oasis unto itself, the Fairmont provides guests with a sense of going somewhere special as they drive through the gilded gates, past the 140-year-old fig tree and into Hollywood history that dates back to the 1920s. The Fairmont today combines classic style with contemporary touches that has fixated visitors from Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy. The property is located across from the ocean but almost has enough amenities to make you never want to leave.



Elegant, cheerful, California-inspired decor distinguishes the hotel’s Ocean Tower guest rooms, while stylish, private bungalows are nestled amongst lush grounds of tropical flowers and palm trees.
