"Close to beach"
Paying as much as we did for this hotel we felt a little let down. Although, the services and people were nice and very accommodating, the room we had was on the south side of hotel which has an outdoor night club that you could hear the music late into the night. The room didn't have a working refrigerator and had a cracked sink. The bathroom was also […] very small. They also charge extra for absolutely everything....even ice. The Fig restaurant, room service, concierge, valet staff, comfortable beds, location, beautiful grounds were all pluses. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It is not what they used to be"
The signature ocean view suite was two simple rooms no balcony partial ocean view. I did not get what I paid for . Other issues: Check in at 3 did not get to my room till 5 ..They were courteous and gave me free drinks while waiting , but disrupted my weekend schedule Last time I was there everybody was friendly , this time only one employee from all […] employees greeted me properly I stayed there before they were great , this weekend I did not feel I am in a luxury hotel . The room is really a big disappointment very small space Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
They checked us into our room 2 hours late. We ate at the hotel lobby, paid for our food and if it wasn't because one of the waitresses asked us what we were waiting for, we would of waited even longer for room keys. She went to go ask if our room was ready, came back with our room keys and compensated us for our food. The bed is not that comfortab […] le. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, horrible valet service"
I stayed at Fairmont for 2 nights and it was more than enough for the valet to scratch my 2014 model car while parking. I filed a claim and they refused to pay for it. Besides, the service was extremely slow, it took over 20 minutes for them to bring my car from wherever it was parked. Avoid their valet and use taxis, uber, public transportation or […] park somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, great service, super comfortable beds and rooms (Nespresso machine, beautiful bathroom...). The only thing is the hotel in not BY the beach, you have to take a little shuttle to go down the ramp.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location but not the best quality"
I always stay at Fairmont or 5 star hotels when I travel. The location if this Fairmont was nice but rooms are do small. I could barely fit the crib and my luggages. This is not ideal when you are paying more than 400$/night. Food was ok but very expensive. There is a loud club in the hotel area as well :(Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice but Overpriced"
This is a very nice hotel with a great location. The grounds are beautiful and the common areas are very nice. The rooms are clean and nice but it is just overpriced for what you are getting. I have stayed at another luxury hotel in the area and will stick with that one. Price is basically the same with much nicer rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were in a very large room which was dated (no iPod docking stations, old clock radio etc) and it was on the first floor, but it ended up being great. I might even ask for this room again - very large and quiet. The female concierge helped us tremendously and had great restaurant suggestions as well as unique shopping suggestions for me and my 18 […] year old daughter. We love this location - it cannot be beat. Don't eat at the pool - the food is awful for some reason. But the food at the restaurant and in the lobby are very good and reasonably priced. We took the house car to one of the restaurants and it picked us up again afterward. All in all, we had a great time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definitely stay again!"
Really enjoyed our experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Housekeeping services were acceptable. The concierge staff was very good but the concierge desk was quite understaffed. The restaurant, poolside, and in-room dining services were astonishingly poor. The restaurant is understaffed: our breakfast servers were running around madly. Hard to believe that The Fig restaurant gets good reviews: mediocre food […] at best. Finally, the front desk staff typically seemed disinterested and disinclined to make eye contact. Pleasant buildings, poor service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, in view of Santa Monica Pier; great for walking, jogging, biking; The FIG restaurant on site very good; Bungalows Bar for night life; overall, very satisfied. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Just old and not what I expected."
The room was older, old bathtub. There was also holes under the baseboard. I was just really disappointed for the price. The bed was ok. The service was good. People were nice, the room just wasn't as nice as I wanted it to be for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service at it's best"
A wonderful place to stay! Tad overpriced but service makes up for it. Only downside is staying oceanfront there is a bar that plays loud music late into the night. Not too bothersome for us but others might not enjoy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendy, Convenient and Easy"
I had a great 3 day stay at the hotel. It was close to most everything. The extra perks (car service and bike availability) were a surprise and great convenience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not stay at this hotel if you want to rest"
The hotel is very nice, and the staff for the most part are helpful and friendly. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. However, none of matters if you can't sleep there. There is VERY loud music and people partying outside until after 2:00 am. It was very frustrating as I was unable to sleep until almost 3:00 am. Luckily I was only staying one […] night. If not, I would have gone to a different hotel for the second night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful pool area"
The pool are was beautiful and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was one of the least comfortable nights of sleep at a hotel I've had in years. The bed was soft and lumpy, and I tossed and turned the whole night. The room itself had a borderline stale feel to it. And, when I mentioned how uncomfortable the bed had been the next morning at the front desk, attendant seemed completely unconcerned. Her only response […] was a casual, "I will let housekeeping know." Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but if you want sleep, keep away from club!"
Everything was great except the nightclub is extremely loud. They "upgraded" us to an ocean view but that meant we were right next to the club and the bass thumped all night long!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Food was very good, the staff was very friendly and fast service.Genuine Expedia guest review

"AWSOME PLACE TO STAY"
IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST HOTELS I EVER STAYED INGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A couple of friends and I were celebrating a new job and everyone we encountered was kind, accommodating, and helpful... From booking an upgrade, scheduling an amenity, valeting the car, the on site restaurants, to the housekeeping staff... All top notch. The on site spa was amazing as well... Thank you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Loved the comfort & decor, staff very friendly & obliging, awesome gym, & spa facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay in the Palisades Tower"
Great location. Nice pool setting. The room was a little shoddy and not up to Fairmont standards -- the bed wasn't all that comfy and the furniture was showing wear. But the worst part was the noise outside of our room on 2nd Avenue. It continued until 3 am and nothing was done about it. Several people were complaining about it as I checked out. It […] made for a horrible night's sleep. I've stayed in the other wing and bungalows before and those were wonderful. So do stay there, but do avoid the Palisades Tower at all costs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We reserved a suite with one room, a king bed and a sofa sleeper. The room was out dated, the sofa sleeper had broken springs and was very uncomfortable. The room was located on the sixth floor of the Palisades tower/side and was extremely noisy. The Huntley Hotel is right across the street so from 10 pm until approximately 3:00 am, we heard tons of […] noise from the partiers at the Huntley. We complained to the hotel manager the next day (Mother's Day), who initially told us that we were the only guests who complained that evening. After some back and forth, he admitted that others had complained about the noise in the past but then assured me that it's not always that loud. In the end, he gave us a complimentary breakfast. My breakfast was terrible while the other two were merely edible. For the price, I would stay elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Nice Hotel"
Arrived at 1:00 pm and was told our room was not yet ready. We left our luggage and walked around until 3:30. When we returned, our room still was not ready. We stayed in the lobby. At this point, I thought perhaps we should have been offered a drink or something for the inconvenience. Nothing. Finally, at 4:00 we were told our room was ready. It was […] a lovely & clean room -- however there were dogs on our floor that barked often. And one of them was definitely a large, loud dog. A little disappointing for the amount of money we paid for the one night's stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was complimentarily upgraded and loved it!"
This hotel is a hotelier's joy. Clean, well appointed, courteous staff and a very convenient location. They have a gourmet chef and a luxurious dinning area close to the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Have stayed in FM before. It was adequate , but not wonderful. The Fairmont has a reputation for excellence and yet my last two visits have been adequate,at best. The location is excellent , especially if Santa Monica is where you wish to be. The desk service was nice & the housekeeping staff also nice. The room was not really special & the amenities […] were limited and laughably expensive( I travel frequently & am no stranger to mini bar prices but these were laughable.) the cost of daily parking was also ridiculously costly.

Our first room was in the older, non-renovated part of the hotel with buckled carpeted in the hallways and a musty smell in the room. We were upgraded to a newer room for $150 a day (on top of the $300 we already were paying). The new room was small, non descript, but adequate--it could have been a Holiday Inn. We left our room at 9 a.m. Sat. and returned […] 5:15 p.m. and our room had not yet been cleaned. The hotel manager was very nice and reimbursed the upgrade surcharge, which made us feel better, but not enough to recommend this hotel to anyone. It was also noisy at night and there is music from loud speakers by the pool, which is intrusive and, in this day where everyone travels with their own music/books/movies, unnecessary and obnoxious.

We had a morning flight from the eastern US and arrived at the hotel at 11am. I told the front desk clerk that we were early for the guaranteed 3pm check-in and inquired whether we could have the room as soon as possible. We were tired from a long day of travel and adjusting to the time change. He said that the room wasn't ready yet but would be soon […] and he would call as soon as our room was ready. He also said that he upgraded us from an ocean view deluxe room to an ocean view suite. We walked around the city, waiting for our phone call. When we didn't hear from the hotel by 2pm, we walked back and checked on the status of the room; not ready yet. We left again and walked around some more; no phone call. At 4:30pm, which was 7:30 EST and dinner time for us, we walked back to the hotel again and asked if the room was ready. They said it was. I asked why no one called and was told that it just became available. They said that breakfast would be complimentary. We went up to our room and discovered it was the room we had booked, not the suite promised. The room was also located right across from the elevator and we could hear it running day and night, in addition to hearing every single loud guest that was returning to their room on the same floor. Throughout our stay, housekeeping forgot to replenish our room with different important supplies on a daily basis. Disappointed that they didn't follow through on their promises. Oh, and the "free breakfast" was on our bill. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay by the sea at the Fairmount Miramar"
We enjoyed the hotel, its bar, its service, and its comfort. The view of the ocean was stunning. The convenience of the location lent itself to easy walking paths to the ocean, restaurants, or shopping. This was a return trip and, I think it is safe to say, we will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to wait almost 2 hours for room to he ready after bring called to ask what time I would arrive. Promised amenities for the kids and received nothing. Had to call multiple times for extra towels. When I told front desk I was unhappy with the service felt like there was no genuine concernGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What You Expect from the Fairmont"
My husband and I checked in for our staycation during Easter weekend and arrived at the impressive gates of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel. We live in Los Angeles and thought it would be fun to stay in Santa Monica, order room service and go swimming in the pool. Upon our arrival at the valet, the staff was slow to help us...check-in was less than enthusiastic […] and the room was not ready at 4pm. After we got settled in, we decided to check out the pool next to the lobby. There was no staff to greet guests and help set up the towels on the lounge and no one could a waitress to take our order...my husband got chatty with a group of people in the jacuzzi and found out that they had snuck in to go swimming. There should be better security at the hotel because the pool was packed and no hotel staff was there to accommodate the real guests. Afterwards, our friends joined us at the hotel bar for some drinks and someone from our group asked for an outdoor blanket. After about 20 minutes, a dirty blanket arrived. We showed it to the waitress and she brought us another one after another 20 minutes. Next, we asked the concierge for a lunch suggestion for the next day. She suggested two restaurants and told us both will be pretty busy so we should look elsewhere but did not give us any more choices. TIP- we walked down Ocean Avenue and discovered Watergrill. Fantastic place and plenty of sitting space, no waiting. Overall, bad service and not to the standards of other Fairmont Hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was amazing!"
We were so enjoy our trip to LA. My boyfriend and I were so satisfied with it !! Amazing!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
I reserved a room with 2 double beds but got a king bed and roll-away bed. The room was tiny so with the roll-away, it was way too crowded and I felt really cramped. The balcony was practically useless because it was so small and you can't see the beach view unless you are standing. I've stayed at the Fairmont many times so was expecting more, but this […] was the most disappointing stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely, low-key hotel close to the beach"
I stayed here with my mom and 18-year-old daughter for a long weekend/college tour trip, and we had a fantastic time. The staff -- from the front desk to our (very charming) server Terrill at Fig to the pool crew -- could not have been more helpful and accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful grounds but snooty staff"
I've always loved staying at this property because the ambiance makes me feel like I'm on vacation but I think I'm finally over it. The lobby staff, save for valet, is just too snooty for my taste. They clearly don't understand the difference between high quality service and putting on airs. They should take a note from The Peninsula hotels. Further, […] the rooms could definitely stand some refreshing/updating given the rates they charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"would have been great"
everything was fine, except they decided to start construction on the 5th floor right above us at 8 am... we asked for a comp room, and all they would give was free car parking... thanks ? i think 50% off the room cost should have been appropriate for the nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel stay was nice & staff friendly. During my stay some construction was going on and my afternoon naps were impossible with the hammering. FULL DISCLOSURE - not told about construction at check in but I understand.Genuine Expedia guest review

"la marathon finish line"
everything was more than fine, except the food, which was average. This includes the dinner and breakfast at Figs; expensive and not worth it. Pool service was a plus and grandchildren enjoyed the heated waters. Stayed at many better for the money, but would return due to pool and location, this time of year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kings of Customer Service"
Upon arrival there was a problem with the hotel's computer system so we were asked to relax in the lounge and enjoy a complimentary cocktail.
