Mixed reviews on service
The Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel earns major points with guests for its location – adjacent to the Santa Monica Pier and Beach. But that's not all this family-friendly property has going for it. Those visiting Los Angeles with kids appreciated the hotel's professional babysitting services, kids closet with movies and games and spacious accommodations (which come equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access, Keurig coffee makers and 24-hour room service). And as a member of the pet-friendly Loews group, this property will also provide amenities for your four-legged family members. The hotel wins praise for its outdoor pool (which also boasts fire pits) and its three eateries. However, some guests note that the customer service here could use some improvements.

Critic Reviews



The spacious rooms offer incredible views of the beach and outdoor pool deck. Full-size sofa beds are perfect for families and balconies are fabulous for people-watching on the boardwalk down below.



Its family-oriented, ocean-view pool and excellent gym make the Loews in Santa Monica a reasonable option for business travelers and families. Just note that the constant nickel-and-diming and overpriced food can add up, and that the hotel isn't right on the beach (it's across the street from it).
