This was our first flight since our daughter was paralyzed in an accident four years ago. She uses a wheelchair full-time now and after we decided where we were going the research started. Much of this review will be helpful to other wheelchair users to know ahead of time. We have stayed at the Fairmont brand before and decided this...

i would be certain to know if the rooms have been updated or not, although the location of this hotel is extraordinary, it did not have the value we expected by looking at the pictures. the hotel needs some serious updating.

Dear George R – I’m very sorry you feel misinformed by pictures of our property. We have a number of room categories, some recently renovated and some not, so I can understand how it may be confusing.

The hotel is beautiful and located in a perfect area. Across beach and near the promenade of third street. When we arrived, the room had treat for our kids, beach toys. Room was spotless but a little small. Great view from our balcony ( great sunset!). Great staff.

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Fairmont for a weekend and had a great experience. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful. The pool is awesome - everything we needed, great service, and an oasis in the middle of busy Santa Monica. Our room was nicely appointed and comfortable. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed in this hotel for four nights and I can see why people rate it the way that they do. It has many great things going for it but it does have a few issues so you have to evaluate whether you can live with it's issues. Overall, we loved the hotel. It feels like a little oasis in...

Starting to really love the Fairmont brand (Canadian). They really know and understand customer service. Booked a suite through the Fine Hotels and Resorts of Amex and they did upgrade us to a ocean view room, free breakfast, (at restaurant, lobby bar area or room service.) Pricey but excellent food, so it really helped out. (Great Fish Taco's in hotel...

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.
