Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Possibly the best location in Santa Monica

Offering refined style and possibly the best location in Santa Monica, this renowned hotel is the ideal option for a perfect Southern California beach break.  Situated just minutes from Santa Monica Pier and overlooking the beautiful beachfront, guests can enjoy elegant, chic surroundings and a diverse array of luxurious facilities.  Enter through the impressive five-story atrium into a world of glamour and style, passing beneath 45-foot palm trees as you start your journey. Then drop into the excellent heated outdoor pool, pay a visit to the eco-friendly spa or head to your modern and stylish room where you’ll find designer amenities and excellent comforts. When you want to head out, plenty of attractions are minutes away but you’ll probably want to make straight for the pier to experience the true Santa Monica way of life.  Please see facilities for details of local resort fees.

Dedrie on front desk was a one of the best

We recently stayed for 3 nights at Loews Hotel, Santa Monica. After a very long travel day we were warmly greet by Dedrie at the front desk - and her smile and welcoming nature immediately made us relaxed (of course the glass of champagne upon arrival also helped). We were offered an upgrade (surprisingly well priced) to a room with an outdoor gas fireplace overlooking the pool and beach, which we readily accepted. Would definitely recommend these rooms, as easily one of the best places for viewing the LA sunset. Dedrie also thoughtfully offered ice-cold milk and cookies for the kids - which was very much appreciated. During our stay we utlised the room service multiple times and were happy each time with quality and quantity of meals and the onsite restaurant is a beautiful place for a morning breakfast. We also used the car valet service and the valet team were suburb and always helpful. Over years we have stayed at multiples properties in Santa Monica and would rate Loews amongst the best. We will certainly be return guests.

Nice hotel in great location

Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida

Recently stayed for 5 days with husband at the Loews. Very pretty hotel right near Santa Monica Pier. Would have given it a 5 rating except for a few minor things. Noise...rooms are not sound proof, could hear everything in the hall, vacuuming upstairs, outside noises. Parking...$60 per day was pretty steep Concierge....tried 3 different times to find a concierge but they were never at the desk Resort fee...understand this during the summer months, but during the winter when you don’t need a beach chair, umbrella or use of pool not sure it why you need a resort charge Otherwise the views from front of hotel looking at the beach were gorgeous! Not many rooms face the ocean but if you can get one that would be nice. Had coffee at the to go coffee place which was great, but pricey. Most hotels of this level have a free coffee station in lobby which would have been nice. Would I stay here again? Absolutely! Walking distance to everything Santa Monica has to offer. Loved Jimmys Tavern across the street for a great burger!
