"Bright & Clean"
We only stayed one night. The hotel/room was bright and clean. Because of our short stay, we didn't have interaction with the staff other than when we registered. It was all very pleasant.

"Delightful!"
Easy access to beach walking or exploring quaint Santa Monica shops and unique cafes. Available and affordable taxis to get quality manis and pedis and later a delectable dinner at the Enterprise Fish Co.

"Fantastic location"
Love it that if you walk through the back entrance it will only take you a 1 minute walk to the beach. The room was nice and the bed was good. Due to the massive balcony we had the room felt a little cramped. The shower was beautiful and the bath eminaties were great. The balcony was of such a size we had a nice big round table with chairs where we had a relaxing breakfast. The gym was of a good size with enough machines and free weights to have a great workout, followed by a nice stroll around the beach. The Santa Monica pier is right next door as is the boulevard and shopping area.

"Great romantic weekend and post-stay exceptional"
A very special weekend for a friend's wedding, so the hotel had to be perfect. This was a great hotel and would stay there again. That's why I gave it high ratings for all categories. Full disclaimer, though, so no one is misled. There was an incident impacting the "room cleanliness" category, which would generally required me to give this one the lowest rating. However, the hotel has assured me it was an "isolated incident" and that steps have been taken to try and ensure things like that won't happen. Once I was assured of this and shown extremely courteous and respectful customer service and concern, it seemed like I shouldn't knock them down just for an "isolated incident."

"Well Priced Hotel on the Beach"
Just a short getaway in our hometown. Lot of quirky mistakes on the hotels end with our reservations etc but in the end they compensated us very well, so it was worth it in the end. Very nice and courteous staff, especially Carlos at the valet and William at the front desk. just minutes by foot to the pier and the beach of course

If you are expecting a JW Marriott than you will be disappointed. Room was cold - would not warm up. Moved us to another room. No warm water for 3 hours after we checked in for maintenance. Never got my requested wake-up call. We won't stay there again.

"Bad game - terrific stay."
Came to California for the ND vs USC football game. Being a ND fan - the game was terrible- but the stay at the JW Marriott Le Merigot Hotel in Santa Monica was perfect. My wife and I have stayed a least a dozen times over the years at this property and have never been disappointed. Staff, facility and location makes this destination a winner.

"Santa Monica Beach Stay"
Stayed at the JW in Santa Monica in November 2016. The purchase through expedia gave us an excellent price, but unfortunately that landed us on the ground floor with windows facing out the walkway to the beach where people passed by. The room was spacious, clean and very nice all around. Service was average and we did not each at the hotel (breakfast showed $$$$ on yelp). The hotel is situated just across the boardwalk to the beach and is a few hundred yards from the Pier and a short walk from 3rd St. Promenade. Overall it was a great stay.

"Overpriced and outdated"
We made a reservation online and were told that the hotel was booked out on arrival. They eventually found us a room on the ground floor, which you could only get to by walking through the business center. The room felt like the forgotten musty part of a hotel - was it the staff's quarters? It was expensive, way too expensive for what it was. Parking was an additional fee as was internet access, which should have been offered free as part of the pricey room. I wouldn't stay here again.

"underwhelmed"
A quaint hotel in a fantastic location. But the service left a lot to be desired, we were promised a number of niceties at check-in that never occurred. The room was large and clean but the temperature control did not work in our room. we could not make it cooler or warmer. we asked twice for maintenance to look at it and despite their efforts it was never fixed. the in-room service was incredibly slow on 2 different days. the on-site parking is quite expensive at $35. The Lowes Hotel is right next store and had a better view of the santa monica pier and beach. It was quite large and new. It might be a good alternative choice, although I can't speak to the service there.

Hotel reception and location at Santa Monica are excellent. The foyer & rooms were great as were the helpfulness of the staff. Complimentary items in the foyer (water etc) was a nice touch too. Back area (access to Santa Monica beach) and near the pool seemed squashed in and outdated though. I had the impression this section of the hotel was in need of a freshen up/modernisation. Otherwise nothing at all to complain about. Would stay there again for sure.

This is a wonderful hotel. It's not right on the beach, but you can still see the water from the hotel. The service was exceptional! Angelo was our waiter at breakfast and he was simply wonderful. From valet to checkout the next afternoon, it was a dream! Definitely worth the money! Hopefully the street construction till end soon, since it was kind of hard to find, but we did make it by asking directions.
