You can't get closer than this. Across the street from the beach. Get an ocean view, the sunsets are amazing! The rooms are very nice & roomy. Very friendly staff. The grounds are beautiful. Pricey but worth the treat.

Dear Tripping123_11 – Thank you for your review! One of the highlights of our property is most definitely the proximity to the beach…and we make it even closer by offering our Beach Club services where our team will pick you up, drop you off, and wait on you hand and foot while you lounge by the ocean. Hope to have...

Booked this hotel with a friend for 2 nights and used the AMX Platinum Fine Hotels program. We received an upgrade to an ocean/pool double room. The room was decent with a small balcony, but overall, quite small. Maybe with only a king bed the room would feel bigger, but in the future, I would recommend booking a larger sized...

Dear Teresa567 – Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review, but I apologize we did not live up to your expectations. While our prices are competitive with the five-star hotels in the area, our service should be equally competitive and I’m sorry to hear we fell short there. I will be bringing your experiences to...

The front desk really went above and beyond, and that is saying a lot for a Fairmont, which are already excellent as a rule. My room had a beautiful ocean view and view west to the mountains. FIG is unbelievably good as well, had an incredible meal. This hotel has the best location in town as well. Can't beat it.

Staying at this hotel always makes me feel happy to be in Southern California. It's nice, but not pretentious. The location and service are superb. It's a beautiful property near the heart of L.A. beach culture, but maintains a secluded feeling. And, it works surprisingly well as a base to work from if you're doing business around the city. Ask...

Our family stayed here for five nights for our first visit to LA. The hotel is beautifully presented with friendly staff. We loved the feel of the hotel which was luxurious but not pretentious.

Dear Stuart J – If the worst thing that happened is that we “overjuiced” you, then that sounds like a pretty successful stay to me! However, I will certainly address with our Fig team they need to be clearer about the way they offer their breakfast beverages so an inconvenience like this does not happen again. Thank you for the...

Reviewed 1 July 2014

This hotel was truly first class. The room was terrific with an ocean view, cushy bed with lots of clean, non tobacco smelling pillows (which many hotels have even though they are smoke free - can't take the tobacco outa the patrons even though you can take it outa the hotel). The service was courteous, classy, and immediate. The setting...

I will recommend this hotel to friends and family. The hotel was always clean and the service was outstanding. Next time I go back to Santa Monica I will stay at this hotel. Been able to walk to the beach and the restaurants was priceless.

Dear Joe G – I’m so pleased you had such a great “staycation” with us! Even if you are from LA, a weekend in Santa Monica can feel like beachside getaway, and we are the perfect spot to make your home away from home. We wish you could give us more than five stars too :) Please let me know...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
