Why We Love This Hotel

  • The AAA 4-Diamond hotel is a block from the beach and a 20-minute walk from the Santa Monica Pier
  • The hotel's Cape Cod-like lounge The Bungalow is a place to see and be seen while sipping cocktails with ocean views
  • Rooms are set in two towers -- opt for the Ocean Tower for a room with an ocean view, balcony and more modern decor
  • Past guests rave about the great service and low-key, unpretentious vibe


Since it opened in 1921, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows has been a mecca for A-list stars such as Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe to tuck away into one of the luxury bungalows for respite by the ocean. That still stands true today as it's still a hot spot for A-listers and locals who flock to the hotel for its hip oceanfront bar and lounge. 

Located within walking distance to downtown Santa Monica, the beach and Santa Monica Pier, it's the perfect spot for tourists who want to be in a buzzy location but still by the beach. The AAA Four Diamond hotel is composed of two buildings: the Ocean Tower, which provides ocean views from its 10 floors, and the six-floor historic Palisades building, which offers regular guest rooms. Then, surrounded by lush gardens, flowers and palm trees, the private bungalows are tucked away for those looking for the utmost in privacy, which is why they are so popular with celebrity guests. 

Whichever room you choose, expect to stay in luxury. Rooms in the historic Palisades building feature a more traditional design, whereas the Ocean Tower rooms are more modernly decorated, most with balconies and ocean views. All rooms feature minimalist decor and have luxe amenities, including Frette linens, bathrobes and Keurig coffee machines.

Fig restaurant offers a bright and airy space serving up fresh organic fare sourced from the Santa Monica Farmers Market. The hotel's hopping Bungalow is the place to grab cocktails and light bites while listening to live music or playing pingpong or pool. The standalone space resembles a seaside cottage complete with patios and plush sofas that feel way more like home than a bar. Pamper yourself at the hotel's Exhale spa and keep your workout routine at the hotel's fully equipped fitness center, outdoor pool and whirlpool.
