Fabulous sunglasses not included (but private car transport to L.A. boutiques is).

Visit SoCal

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, close to the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica pier. I enjoyed using the bikes for a long ride along the beach. Fun trip. Will be back.

Felt like a rockstar!

Gorgeous Hotel, Beautiful Pool, Fabulous People - Loved the big tree outfront and the club was hot and hopping, but go early - the line gets long and the staff is no help getting in even if you are staying at their hotel.

I love this hotel! First off, the location is wonderful, but what really was nice for me was the service and care that the staff gives. My room was gorgeous and clean. I will continue to stay at this hotel, when I visit Santa Monica again. Trust me you can not go wrong with this hotel!

Perfect quiet overlooking the ocean

The Fairmont Miramar on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica was perfection epitomized. The staff are very helpful and cheerfully elegant. The hotel is an oasis of peace and quiet with a lot of beautiful people walking around, swimming in the pool, and, if you are lucky, some bright stars of Hollywood were in the lobby waiting for guests to dine by poolside. I was lucky enough to have a large balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the beach; the bed was pure comfort and the overall feel was trendy casual. I would rate this hotel very highly.
