My plans kept changing and when I finally arrived at the hotel the front desk was very warm and helpful.

Best place to stay in Santa Monica

Choice of hotel to stay in Santa Monica. Comfortable bed, excellent service from staff, food is delicious and our Goldie terrier felt at home.

Great location, mediocre non-luxury room, inattentive staff

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Uninspired G. Families - 30/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Inattentive valets seemed to pretend we weren't there. Only other person who spoke to us the entire trip was the front desk at my prompting. I can't say that anyone seemed interested in having us there. View from our window was of the pretty desperate homeless situation on the side street. Stupid android tablet never worked. Room was enormous but barely furnished (and the little table seemed to be metal patio furniture?!). It was almost unnecessarily large and yet totally uncomfortable with nowhere to really sit except on the beds. Which were small double beds. To be fair, I was aware of the double beds and not having an ocean view when I booked. It just seemed to matter more in this room. I guess the bathroom had a nice countertop and fixtures. Towels were reasonably fluffy. Took a few hours but we did eventually get a hypoallergenic pillow. But everything that was sort of nice in the room... I have better stuff at home. Left me saying "why did I come here?" Overall $500/night is quite a lot to pay for mediocrity. And now two out of the last three Fairmont hotels have been mediocre (Santa Monica, Kona). Vancouver was exceptional, but now I'm thinking it was really the exception. I am not kidding when I say that I have had overall much nicer stays at the Hilton Garden Inn by Disneyland.

Unfortunately, our stay was not what I expected in a Fairmont hotel. The shower did not drain, guests were smoking on the balconies and the topper was that our toilet overflowed.

Just okay really , nothing special...

Parvaneh P. Families - 30/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We have visited repeatedly and have never seen the property so dirty . Our bungalow had garbage in the area just sitting there for 3 days and we had peanuts under our bed just scattered. The only day they really cleaned around unit 17 was the last day we there , and funny enough there was a wedding so they cleaned it then, but we had 3 nights there where it wasn't. We also had cockroaches in our room. We saw two on two different days. The property may be lagging because of covid but for almost 1K a night, its not acceptable. On check out, I said, " I dont want a discount, but I would like to give you some feedback and the lady that checked us out said why dont you yelp us??" I told her you wouldn't want that, I wanted to give some feedback to the manager and she then handed me your card but I am posting my review here:)

Great location and staff, a few shortfalls

Hi, Everyone that we encountered that worked at the property was fantastic, Especially Angel (drove the house car)! Overall we had a good time but the room was a little dated (especially the window) and there was a very bad smell by the jacuzzi. I also think the "beach club" was a little oversold from the description and website. The best part of our stay was definitely the people! Annie

Disappointed

Laurac Couples - 30/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We have stayed at Fairmont's in the past in different cities, this was the first vacation we have had in years. It was the first anniversary trip in 30 years. I decided to go with a company that I knew I could trust in and know what to expect. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with this Fairmont, it was a distance from the beach, the full ocean view is actually a partial ocean view even though you angled the balconies. The rooms were really small, the bathroom and shower crazy small. There was one restaurant was okay nothing great, and once you ate there it wasn't something you wanted to go back to. The hotel stated a BMW experience to drive up to 3miles so I didn't have to get into my vehicle, but it was never available. The beach club set up was nice but you still had to trek out to the chairs, and the food and snacks were for purchase at a beach shack. We paid for breakfast and parking, the breakfast wasn't from Room service but once again from Ivy and extremely expensive, 15$ for a small bagel this was not a NY Bagel. The local newspaper was supposed to come in the morning, never did. Pool area was more of a Holiday inn not what I'm used to with a Fairmont. It was our 31 anniversary and it was disappointment with Fairmont. I should have gone down the beach which would have been cheaper and closer to all the action. At this point I'm not actually sure I'll trust in Fairmont name for my luxury vacation needs.

Excellent Stay

Where do I start, the staff, the property, the vibe? Once you drive through gates, California cool takes over.

We loved staying at the Fairmont Miramar. Service was great, even though you could tell there were some new people. Little things like making sure luggage is in the room right away and pool service could be improved, but it’s a beautiful property in a beautiful area.

Great location at a lovely hotel but the noise was unreal

J. A. Families - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I loved staying at the Fairmont in Santa Monica because the location was perfect and the hotel is beautiful. We had 2 rooms for my husband & 1 and our 2 teenage children and it was perfect space wise. We however did not realize that Wed-Sat there is a nightclub bar just below us that plays thumping loud music well into the night - like 6pm- 1:30am. They never even mentioned this when we booked. Made it hard to get a restful night sleep and start the day early. Other than that, we really enjoyed the amenities, the location, the staff and the feel of the hotel.

Logistics Issue

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Amit M. Families - 23/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We always look for a Fairmont for our destination and one in Santa Monica we thought would be a perfect for my family. Our room was not ready and was given to us 2 and half hours later pass check-in time, which compounded logistics issue for us and to use beach club reservation facility to get on the beach with kids as last ride to beach was at 5pm. We were there only for 2 nights and next day reservation for Beach club was not available Upon Checkin - TV did not work either, which we called in technician but could not fix the live guide issue which was glitching and the main technician company which was suppose to look into this know issue had left for the day. We did not even bother to call in next-day Understand these are unprecedented time and availability of good staff is at premium but it appears to be affecting Fairmont experience.

Dear Amit M., Thank you very much for taking the time to share your comments regarding your stay at the Fairmont Miramar - Hotel & Bungalows. Exceptional service is what we strive to be known for; therefore your feedback is extremely important as it helps us to continually improve our service and provide a memorable experience to our valued guests. Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Thank you for your patience and understanding in allowing us to recover our service standards.

We had a wonderful time at the Fairmont. We stayed in a family suite. It was perfect for our family. The room was clean and the staff very attentive to all our needs. We loved the fact that the hotel had bicycle at our disposal.

Thank you very much for your positive review! We're very happy to hear that your family enjoyed their stay here and hopefully we can see you again sometime soon!
