Overview

Large pool complex with fire pits and ocean views
Some recent guests didn't like the extra fee for gym access

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 La La Land with kids appreciated the hotel's professional babysitting services, a 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 was also praised for its outdoor pool (which also boasts fire pits) and its four eateries. However, some guests note that the customer service here could use an improvement. On the upside, if you're a member of the Loews YouFirst rewards program, you can earn and use perks when staying here.
