Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, the stylish Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows embodies the eclectic, casual elegance of Santa Monica and Southern California. The beachfront hotel has been a celebrity draw ever since a young Greta Garbo moved in for an extended stay in the Roaring Twenties. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on five sweeping acres, the Miramar offers a resort-like setting in a perfect location: walking distance to the Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica State Beach, the 26-Mile Bike Path, Venice Beach Boardwalk and the renowned Santa Monica Farmers’ Market. The critically acclaimed FIG Restaurant, namesake of the landmark 80-foot Moreton Bay Fig Tree rooted in the hotel’s front drive, serves up farm-to-table SoCal cuisine and offers patio-style atrium dining. Soko, the new sushi pop-up; the hip Bungalow Bar, with ocean views and craft cocktails; Dogtown coffee and fresh-squeezed juices; and the Lobby Lounge all create a vibrant atmosphere that is a draw for locals and international visitors alike. On-site shops include Vilebrequin, Atelier by Edward Avedis (Lady Gaga’s jeweler), Lloyd’s Barbershop and Birds & Fellows by Glam + Go. The Exhale Spa, indoor/outdoor ocean-view gym, outdoor heated pool, and Miramar Golf Academy provide plenty of ways for guests to renew, recharge and simply relax. Accommodations range from secluded beach bungalows to luxury suites with breathtaking balcony ocean views, and parking is available, along with complimentary BMW house car service within a three-mile radius, beach cruisers for guests and 24-hour concierge service. Ideal for couples seeking a romantic retreat, families looking for a fun getaway and business travelers desiring coastal comfort, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows’ experience is so unique it can be found in one place: Only at The Miramar.

We always attempt to stay with Fairmont. The service we receive, particularly from Fairmont Santa Monica and Maui Kea Lani, are always exceptional. The front desk manager, Gerrick, food and beverage director, Kristina, and all of the concierges were amazing. You hosted our family of 11 for four bungalow nights. They are looking forward to our week=long stay in February at the Kea Lani.

When I arrived the room I received was not what I was expecting- nothing really wrong was a bit dark. I spoke with Alex at the desk And he went out of his way to find me a room that was perfect for my stay. It made my work trip a million times better specially being the first one in the USA in two years. Alex was not the only one… the drivers, the banquets team and restaurant staff where amazing and made me feel very welcome. Thank you for having such a wonderful team and working hard to make strangers stay the best possible

I have stayed at the Miramar countless times now, in pretty much every type of room available. The hotel is always welcoming and common spaces make this one of my favorite hotels. The bar is fantastic as is Fernando the bartender - if you want a hotel that is in the heart of Santa Monica and walk to whatever you want this is a great place.

Breathtaking! We stayed three nights in one of the bungalows. This was my third trip to the Miramar and it wowed me just as much as before -- if not more. The hotel is extremely stylish but also comfortable and cozy. The room (and the entire hotel) was spotless and modern. Every single staff member we encountered was incredible: they were all kind, helpful, and attentive. Daniel (valet) gave us the history of the iconic fig tree gracing the front entrance and took several photos for us in front of it. The food was also fantastic! We ate at the attached Fig restaurant, which is beautiful and has a sophisticated menu. The new sushi bar was also a standout. I also discovered my new favorite wine during a late night room service order. Just perfect. Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely terrible. Thumping music and loud night club voices until 2 am every night. Couldn't sleep. This is so sub par the Fairmont experience that I'm shocked. Not only that it happened but that they were happy to take my money knowing FULL WELL that they have an extremely loud (and I mean beyond any sense of near normal) outdoor nightclub in the parking lot of the hotel!! And still they're happy to sell rooms that are only a few stories above it - like I'm supposed to just take it. Shame on them and upper management for this. I know times are tough and hotels need to make money so they rent out their prestigious beautiful entrance to loud night club owners, but at the same time they loose loyal customers like me from going to any other Fairmont in the world - and I've been to the best of them - because they've so abused my trust in the Fairmont brand. Either be a hotel or a night club, but they must choose - or find a solution ie not selling rooms directly above the night club - so they don't alienate more brand loyal guests. I know of 5 groups that evening that have forever sworn off the Fairmont brand. All this on my wife and my anniversary! Shame on them!
