"nice walk from beach and pier"
The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating since we arrived early from driving over 7 hours and had to wait and were extremely tired. They apologized and provided a comp breakfast which was really nice. Thank you Marilee, she called after we arrived in the room to ask if there was anything else we needed. the […] cleaning crew were very friendly and asked if we needed extra towels.

"Over All: Very Satisfied!"
Overall, I was very satisfied with everything. However, Hotel Management needs to make sure Hotel Cleaning Crew obey Hotel Guests wishes better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Neighborhood Hotel"
Loved our room...modern and clean! Within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Check out Abbott Kinney, specifically The Tasting Kitchen and Gjelina for dinner/drinks. The bar on the top of the Erwin Hotel was awesome too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Love this hotel, very cool and funky decor and great staff. Only one small complaint, the pillows are way too soft!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really convenient to the freeway (10) and access to the 405. The Beach and downtown Santa Monica/restaurants are close but not convenient to walk to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Well decorated rooms. Beds really comfy. Walls are a bit thin can hear people in the halls.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff is very friendly. The room was clean. I have stayed at this hotel before and every time I leave happy. Convenient location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close walking. To everything . Great accommodations and staff . Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a great time. Hotel was gorgeous. Only downside was parking and we thought the balcony would be a little bigger.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Swanky hotel tucked away in Santa Monica"
Enjoyed the facility. The hotel was cool and the staff was friendly, the poolside is nice and the small restaurant was tasty but a little overpriced. The parking situation was a nightmare. They have complimentary self parking, but every time you pull up they tell you it's full. The valet staff took 20 minutes finding my husband's car even though he […] provided the ticket.

"Great hotel with an awesome price"
Had a last minute getaway and this hotel was perfect! Good location and even better price. Super clean, friendly staff, and very nice comfortable rooms!Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice quite neighborhood. Very short walk to Main Street and the pier. Staff was very helpful, nice boutique hotel experience. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The one right across high school"
It was very nice for the most part. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom clean. Towels very clean and nice. Free parking a great plus! Underground! Staff at the front desk very friendly. The only draw back we experienced was the "continental breakfast" the price was way too high! $18 for fresh fruit, generic yogurt, bagels not to wow about-granola […] that's pretty much standard. And worse yet- "Cappucino" is just ground coffee beans as opposed to expresso beans with diluted milk and no foam. The server that made the cappucino actually said" I hope you'll like it" . So paying $18 for continental breakfast at at 4+ star hotel was too steep. That really was the deal breaker for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"This place was a true pleasure"
Tim was great at check-in, the parking staff were friendly, and the eggs benedict perfectly cooked. The pool was closed due to a leak while I was there, but they made sure it was cleaned up soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay in May 2014"
The hotel is well kept and the rooms are clean. The food is surprisingly good and I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The only recommendation is that I'd like the wifi to be free of charge in the hotel room. NOTE: they do have free wifi in the lobby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charged too much"
No parking was available. The valet was charging each time I parked not each night like they quoted me. And the second night the guy said he would take the charge off, but never did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous, modern hotel near the beach"
Loved the feel of the hotel and the proximity to all that Santa Monica has to offer. We had an early check-in that was accommodated without a problem. The hotel was hosting a conference during our stay, so some amenities (the pool) were not available, but they had a shuttle to their sister location's pool to make up for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great modern decor...clean and polished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel within walking distance to shops/beach"
I only consider hotels that are at least 4 stars. With that being said, I booked this hotel with low expectations. The pictures made the hotel look very small and a little dated. Some other reviews criticized it for being close to a school. Additionally, I expected to pay at least $30 a day for valet parking. Also, other reviews made it seem as though […] it was not within walking distance to shops and beach. Do not pay attention to the negative reviews! We were warmly greeted when we first arrived and were told that there was free self parking or valet parking at a cost. We were upgraded to a room overlooking the pool with a balcony. Our room was clean and comfortable. We love to walk so to us, we enjoyed not being in the center of the shopping and beaches because it gave us a reason to get our daily exercise in. We couldn't get a sense of the neighborhood. It wasn't the nicest in Santa Monica but we just avoided walking out late at night and didn't have a problem. Honestly, I truly recommend this hotel. My only suggestion is to offer complementary coffee in the morning. There is a nespresso machine in the room but it would have been nice to be able to enjoy a regular cup. Would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Over priced, mediocre management."
This hotel is not worth the price. Long lines at check in, disorganized staff and service, much further from the beach than the online pictures imply.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel with exceptional service"
Impressive decor, friendly and attentive staff, great gym, free parking, free wifi in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can only recommend this hotel"
We will definitely choose Le Medidien Delfina Santa Monica for our next visit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trying Hard for the Botique Feel"
Nice hotel with comfortable rooms. Staff is pleasant and very efficient. Not in a particuar walking location although the area seems safe...just a bit far to the beach and restaurants. Free parking but it fills up fast. We found on- street parking nearby that worked well. Do not get a room onthe second floor...the bar noise drifts up the open atrium […] and gets very loud until about mid-night. Southside rooms come with a nice view.

"Trendy and classy"
Loved my stay here. I only did not like that wifi was not free other than that it was perfect!Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was a bit run down.The mattress was lumpy and uncomfortable. the cleaning lady took all the shampoo and soap and did not replace it. Then when I went to use the phone, it was dead.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value in tony Santa Monica"
This is a great place if you are on a budget but don't want to compromise on quality. It is only a few blocks to the beach and the famous Santa Monica pier and convenient to the 3rd Street promenade area. Beautiful room with nice finishes, and a little bit distinctive. Cool Illy espresso machine in the room. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Attentive staff, lovely, classy, close to beach"
I wanted a hotel close to the beach and reasonably close to Hollywood. I liked the pricing package, the look and ratings. I booked a king but got 2 doubles which I didn't mind. Everyone on staff was friendly, courteous and super helpful. When I had a sudden request to print and fax a business contract to the east coast right away, and I couldn't find […] the business center, I came upon an executive's office and that person helped me download and print the document so that the concierge could fax and scan it for me. The pool area was a great place to hang out and also get work done. Beautiful lobby with seating, tables, wifi and has a bar that serves food and access to the pool and patio. The bartender was fabulous. My room was lovely. Room service was wonderful and very accommodating. Guest services always called to check if I needed cleaning or refreshed supplies when my "do not disturb" sign was up. In contrast, my brother's hotel was stylishly modern but the wildly tatooed musicians in the halls had more color than their dull grey walls. My one small complaint: I realized I forgot my razor. I asked guest services if there was a store nearby. They said they'd send one up right away. I was in a big hurry (for a wedding rehearsal) but the razor took 30 minutes to be delivered, which put me a bit behind schedule with my bathing/shaving. I might've been faster picking it up myself or running to the corner gas mart. Overall "A". So enjoy this wonderful hotel and pack your razor! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to beach"
Le Meridien was very nicely situated: close to the beach for the many guests who went for a run and within a short walk to Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade which has many restaurants and places to shop.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2 blocks away from the beach."
The staff is friendly. 2 blacks away from the beach and 4 blocks away from Santa Monica Place mall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great & Not Great"
Loved the beds, room comfort & location. There was constant traffic noise outside our room - no soundproofing & had the noisest neighbors next door who didn't quiet down until around 4am. The walls were VERY thin. There was a plumbing issue in our room - the staff handled it immediately when notified, which was appreciated. If you stay here, I would […] definitely request a room off of Pico. Otherwise traffic noise will be your bedfellow. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wouldn't stay again"

"Great Stay - Excellent Staff"
The hotel was spotlessly clean. They were super accommodating. The self park lot was full a few of the nights we were staying, they valet parked our car for free! I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel but quite a unpleasant walk to city center.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, nice area, very close access to highway. I had to travel a lot everyday and I did not have to travel through town a lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Meeting Expectation 4 Star Rating"
Noisy with the walls are thin. Difficult to get good night sleep when you can hear the next room folks talking and TV sounds penetrating thru thin walls. For folks who are first timer, the front desk should mention where the hotel elevators location. We walked around lost looking for the elevators. We parked our car in hotel public parking, but staff […] billed us for $32 vallet service. Front desk staff corrected error without any problems. I was very pleased with it. If you plan on not getting sleep, the Sheraton Delfina great place to stay for great staff and service. It's walking distance to Santa. Monica Pier/beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
From the moment we walked in, our experience was great! Haley checked us in, gave us an early check in. Once he learned we were celebrating my birthday he upgraded our room. He later sent up complementary champaigne, chocolate covered strawberries w/a note attached fr he & the staff wishing me a Happy Birthday...WHAT A SURPRISE!! Free parking is VERY […] limited but since it was full, valet comped us for both nights. The only complaint we had was santa monica high is directly across the street & was the view fr our balcony. However if we had been a little higher, we would've seen passed it. Despite that, we will definitely be staying here on future visits! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room with staircase view"
Rooms ok for the price but horrible view from it (staircase and wall). The excuse was I booked it thru expedia (hotels.com) I won't go back to this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No housekeeping service. A party hotel for business people. Not relaxing at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"le meridien santa monica"
This hotel is hip with a very warm and friendly staff and atmosphere. Just far enough from the action to be nice and quiet, while only a few minutes walk to the beach area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for getting to beach"
Nice hotel. Small and boutique like. Lobby bar was under construction which was too bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Prime location in Santa Monica"
This is a lovely hotel centrally located in Santa Monica. Easy access to the 10, the beach, the Promenade. We found the staff to be vey attentive and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid spot centrally located in Santa Monica"
Recently converted from a Sheraton to a Le Meridian. I've stayed there before and I noted that the decor has been updated. Very modern. The staff was friendly and the rooms comfortable. Was less impressed with the bar experience. They didn't know how to make a mojito and the waiter seemed harried and unhappy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to family!"
Above average with several criticisms. First and foremost, the parking situation was a problem throughout our stay. Advertised as having complimentary parking, what wasn't mentioned was that it was limited. If returning to the hotel late, one was forced to use valet for $32.00 per nite. That circumstance was inconvenient, costly and totally unanticipated. […] when one spends a lot for a room, parking should be included. In addition, the hotel is in need of upgrades and renovating. It is old and dated in both decor and infrastructure. Prices were high given what was provided. Little touches were obviously missing. We stayed three nights and were provided with one bar of soap for the entire time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was great. The rooms were clean. The hotel itself is kinda old and a bit if a walk from beach and downtown area. Other Le meridian hotels I have been in have been much more impressive. Other than those things, it's ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hip, Skip and Jump"
The transformation from the previous hotel is remarkable. It is now a hipper decor that brightens up your arrival. The front desk, room service and the staff on the breakfast buffet are excellent. The valet leaves a little to be desired, plan to wait dropping of and retrieving your car. Overall still good. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, view in […] my room was nothing special, but I was happy the offered the high floor as the street noise could have been an issue. Bathroom tight, but functional. Not much in walking distance, but central in terms of getting to the beach, Santa Monica Place, and Beverly Hills is nearby too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Place to stay in Santa Monica"
Close to everything in Santa Monica!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Updated Interior Masks Old Structure"
Staff was pleasant. The interior is quintessentially Santa Monica. New owners did a terrific job masking an old, outdated hotel (former hotel property). Yet under the facade of charming pics and colors is an old structure. - insifficient number of self parking spaces. One must be parked by check-in/out time or risk self parking area being filled ($32 […] for vallet) - disturbing number of turns and doors in corridors which feels like additions were slapped up ad hoc. - watch out for bathroom counters! In both rooms I stayed, they slant downwards. Anything round rolls onto the floor. I lost a new bottle of nail polish ($15) which crashed onto the marble floor. - water pressure was so weak I couldn't get the soap out of my hair. - The heater didn't work. I walked around room in a coat the first night. After reporting twice, I had to repack and move to another room. Repacking is an inconvenience. (No, I was not upgraded for the inconvenience.) I didn't receive my requested 4:30am, nor 4:45am wake up calls; thus, I missed my flight. A mess during Thanksgiving week. The hotel gave bonus points to compensate, but that hardly helped with my flight issues. Set your own alarms!!! The on demand movie also didn't work (minor issue, but it was advertised). Internet not included. (Join their affinity club to get free internet service) For the price, I expected far more than the hotel delivered. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
