Not like my usual experiences at Fairmount properties

My room was located on the top floor of the hotel and I could not sleep at all due to the noise from the nightclub, I can't imagine how the guests on lower floors experience was being closer to it.

Dear Mr. D., 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.

Sincerely, Lema Katawazi Director of Front Office Operations

Great service however, the prices at FIG ( and the bar lobby) were far too expensive.

My wife and I were at the Miramar for a week and the property is extremely well run. The location of course is excellent as well.

Best spot in Santa Monica

Everything was perfect from arrival to the valet, check in at the desk and service in Fig as well as out at the pool. We enjoyed the astroturf lounge chairs as an alternative to the busy pool deck and the staff was attentive. The two level bungalow was the perfect set up - able to enjoy the balconies to relax and unwind. Housekeeping service was excellent, too.

Rooms are out dated.

The location is great but the rooms are very outdated and not worth it. I was there for 9 days and that was over $6000. It definitely needs an update

Great Service and food !

Stayed in one of your bungalows (17) and had a wonderful experience. Recently stayed at Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and the Miramar is head and shoulders a better hotel, better service and has the best food. Everyone was extremely helpful. Noah at the front desk figured out that the reservation in my name had been misspelled. He corrected the spelling and updated the Accor site as well. Every meal we ordered for room service was outstanding and constantly amazed us at how good it tasted and how well it was prepared.

Delayed check in

Arrived at 4:20pm and room was not ready. Needed to shower and go to a dinner. Had to use spa locker room….room ready at 5. Absolutely unacceptable when check in is at 3… Front desk staff very courteous but hotel felt crowded and like it didn’t have enough housekeeping help. This property could be so much better given where it is but it always leaves me wanting more.

Lovely stay

The hotel has a beautiful location, and very friendly staff. The rooms are well equipped

a little upsetting

I don't like waiting for coffee in the AM. Dogtown does not cut it. When you had self service tea and coffee in the Lobby AND newspapers IT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE WAITING FOR MY WIFE TO GET READY AND COME DOWN TO BREAKFAST. It is now boring and a pain in the neck. In addition, the room was not clean and the staff did not address our concerns. Time for the new project or renovate the tower. You should not continue as is.

Enjoyed the stay, with one complaint

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Nicholas Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a good stay, nice amenities, solid (if overpriced) food/beverage offerings. The one MAJOR failing was the loud party in the front of the building ever night. We were not warned that loud music would be playing every night until 2 a.m., so loud that my wife couldn't sleep, started crying, and had to put on clothes at midnight to request a room change, which was mercifully granted. Needless to say, it wasn't the night we had in mind when staying at a nice hotel. We could literally feel the bass from the music. It's still hard to believe that it's a party/concert put on by the hotel. You might expect that in Panama City or on Bourbon street, but not at the Fairmon Miramar.

Overall experience was wonderful!

I came in from out-of-town to spend time with family on my birthday. I was so grateful to see upon arrival , the majority of staff were not wearing masks, maybe my next stay they will be completely forgotten. The accommodations were very nice and staff were all excellent! I would like to return soon.

Nice public spaces but bedrooms need upgraded

Eric S. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed for a week. Ground floor bar and figs restaurant are well presented. Stayed in two bedrooms during our 8 nights and the bedrooms are of a poor standard - they are tired and refurbished. They’re not on a par with other Fairmont Hotels and are a disappointment. Should also say your phone system for contacting the hotel is poor

Best spot in Santa Monica

We always love staying at the Fairmont. Everything feels clean, warm and happy. We love the restaurant and coffee cafe, and even though it was slightly windy when we visited, the pool area is protected and was still warm in the sunshine. Leaving the property to walk on the beach or promenade is not as desirable as it used to be, but we felt safe and relaxed when on hotel property.

Great hotel for family vacation!

Had a wonderful stay at The Fairmont with plenty of room for our family to enjoy the room, pool and all amenities!

Good location

Sebastien Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is nice although a bit outdated for a Fairmont. A renovation is much needed. The service is good and the staff puts attention towards their guests. But how can the food proposed in the restaurants be so bad!? I am not being picky but the food is terrible: being with the kids we ate a lot at the restaurant and tried the entire menu.

Beautiful hotel

Everyone at the Fairmont treats me and my gf and her daughter like family, and we love it. The robes and spelling out the daughter's name on the bed was a very nice touch.

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!
